6 months old!

What an eventful month it has been! Lots of festivities and lots of new developments...

Mama bear has been on high alert because little Miss Maya has become very mobile! She has been crawling backwards for a while, and now she does it so fast. Last week she sat up by herself for the first time!!! She was crawling backwards and then fell onto her bum. Then she couldn't wriggle out of her sitting position so she toppled over and rolled back to her tummy. Then repeat. Again and least 30x a day! Meanwhile, I'm having a heart attack thinking that she's going to bump her head on something! And Dada is having a heart attack thinking that she's going to pull the fluff from the carpet and choke!

We also set up a highchair and we have been feeding her breakfast in it. She looks like such a big girl in her own seat with her own little tray and cup holder! She loves to eat and does it so well. As soon as she sees the spoon coming, she opens up wide like a Venus Fly Trap! We have been feeding her pablum twice a day for the past 2 months. On Tuesday, we will be starting with solids, and I'm so excited! I can't wait to see which foods she likes. Will she prefer beans or sweet potatoes? Will she like apples better than bananas? Her personality will come out more and more...what a discovery this all is!

As we approach the winter season, there are so many festivities. This month, she celebrated her first Diwali. We dressed her up in one of the outfits Dada brought from India, which was supposed to be for a year-old baby, but it barely fit her! We also put her in her first gold bracelet, which Auntie Laxmi sent, which also barely fit her! She looked like such a South Indian princess...wearing her silk dress and gold!

She also had her first picture with Santa, which was fun. Boy, was there a big line for that one! Some of the other kids cried, but Maya was giggling and as jolly as Santa himself! She loves the attention...what a Gemini!

She has been very grabby lately. She likes to reach out and touch things with her hands. She is always grabbing Dada's mustache, nose, hair, and chest hair! Sometimes when I hold her, she tries to search for that mustache and looks at me like "Why don't you have one like Dada?" And she goes absolutely crazy when Mama uses the hairdryer. It's the most interesting thing right now, to watch Mama do her hair in the morning!

Our good friends Frances and Dickson, had their little boy last week - Darcy Poon, or as I like to call him, "Mister Darcy". She is thrilled with the arrival of another little boyfriend! Her third boyfriend, to be exact!

We are so looking forward to Christmas, and all the family festivities. Maybe she will have her first snow?
