    Maia Battle Report: Year 3 Month 4    Maia at age 3 is showing small signs of brilliance, like asking what's going on on the other side of the world when the sun goes down, or making a connection between something brand new and something we learned and forgot months ago. She is into a rhyming phase where she likes to string rhyming sounds together like "hocky, blocky, docky". She has definitely entered the WHY?? stage of life which is more irritating than I thought it would be. All it's doing is training me to hold back the reason for something I say so I'll have a follow-up ready for the inevitable WHY??   We're working on her joke abilities, and she has over a 50% chance to guess the punchline of jokes following a known pattern, like animal sounds...

    Halloween Wrap-up    Halloween was a success in spite of the roadblocks erected by 2020. We carved a single pumpkin, locally grown from a vine in our backyard. That vine originated from the pumpkin seeds we tossed in the compost in 2019. Maia named the pumpkin "Jackie".     Elsa was the obvious choice for costume this year, and it had been worn so often in the run up to Halloween that the plastic tiara had already broken. I'm pretty sure the magic wand isn't Frozen canon, but Maia enjoyed casting spells by saying, "Abracadabra, POOF!"     Maia went trick-or-treating with the across-the-street neighbours and actually got a decent amount of candy. I stayed home because I couldn't see anything through my glasses ...

    List Day: 10 Things I Did on Staycation      Fall super-cleaning of the whole house.    Rearranged two bedrooms.    Moved a file cabinet full of 24 years of life's detritus into the basement.    Repaired a broken sink pivot bar.    Fixed a leaky tub cartridge.    Hung new pictures on the walls.    Ordered out for dinner 4 times.    Solved 19 puzzles in Puzzle Boat 7.    Started and finished the book,  Long Light .    Unraveled 0 new streamers in Paper Mario: Origami King because there are too many random battles slowing down progression.

    Maia Battle Report: Year 3 Month 2  By week and by month seem like too short of a period to keep writing these Battle Reports, but I feel like I should check in occasionally to make sure that the miscellaneous quirks of our daughter are not forgotten.     Maia is now 2 months beyond the age of 3, has reached the age where she clearly has a short-term and long-term memory and is mostly capable of communicating with us. On Friday, she reminded Rebecca to bring cash in the car because the apple-picking farm didn't accept credit cards. She finds it easy to express herself, repeating stock phrases like "I'm so excited!" that she's heard elsewhere. She'll also say, "I love you too!" if you start.   Maia still loves dresses. We've moved all of...

    Beach Day  Our beach trip last week was a great success in spite of the lack of Olympics to watch. We drove down in 7 hours on Sunday the 26th, a task made more logistically difficult with fewer public restrooms open. 100% of observed people at the Fredericksburg rest stop wore masks, and this decreased to 75% around Hampton Roads and 50% in North Carolina. Maia had her first Happy Meal outside of Richmond, eaten in the shade of a tree near the restaurant.     After extra quarantine time upfront, we merged our bubble with the Smiths for the week, which meant we got to have normal interactions like "too many people in the tiny kitchen" and many esoteric Kickstarter board games. The house was a perfect size for us, and feature...

    Maia Battle Report: Year 3  Maia is three years old today! She's 34.5" tall and weighs 27.4 pounds, the lowest possible values in the ranges for average growth.     Due to COVID, she had two separate birthday parties, one for each set of grandparents. She's very aware of age this year and has talked about being 2 and turning 3 for weeks. She expresses excitement by proclaiming, "I so excited!" and then running down the hall and back for no apparent reason. She's also looking forward to our upcoming beach trip where she will "sleep in the top bunk and the bottom bunk".   We finally showed her  Frozen 2  and she had a rudimentary grasp of the plot without explaining (other than the endless sequences of nature fairies fly...

    Looking Ahead to Beach Day  One of the few activities that hasn't received a surprise evisceration from pandemics is our upcoming Outer Banks beach trip with the Smith family.     This trip celebrates 8 years since our  last beach trip together  and boasts several firsts:     First beach house directly on the beach, with no road to cross.   First beach trip with Maia, who knows that "the ocean is loud", and gets her own room with bunk beds in it.   First house in Duck, a town that's equally as "fresh off the bridge" as Kitty Hawk, but feels slightly classier.   First beach trip with masks at the ready for trips to Walmart and Food Lion and a very low chance of eating inside a restau...

    Weekend Wrap-up  For Rebecca's birthday weekend, we went back to  Weather Lea Farm  in Lovettsville, VA.     Very little had changed since our last visit, and we were greeted by Mimi the dog and Castor the cat (the latter of which walked into our cottage like a boss).     It was supposed to thunderstorm all weekend long, but we somehow managed to avoid every single one and had a cloudy, pleasant weekend wandering the grounds, feeding horses, sheep, and llamas.     During one of the almost-storms, Rebecca and Maia went down to the pond to watch it sprinkle while the sun shined. Maia insisted on bringing her umbrella everywhere, just in case.     We got curbsid...
