On the 68th day in the life of the most beautiful girl in the history of the world the morning began peacefully. Maya has been recovering from her vaccinations all weekend. She got her shots on friday and has been asleep ever since. She woke up today at about 3:00 and was wide eyed and active for 3 hours. It was good to see her thriving again. Since her shots she had lost her cry. She would open her mouth to try to push out a wail and end up letting out a tiny squeak. She sounded like some one who had lost their voice. Add to that the fever and aches that came with the vaccinations and it wa a hard weekend for her. She is doing much better tonight. Her cry is not up to full force yet, but it is starting to come back to her, and she is less distressed tonight.

Her day today was very relaxing and mellow. We slept in, we watched some TV we listened to some music and that was about it. This afternoon Travis and Krissie came by to see our beautiful girl. It was a really warm day today so we decided Maya need to go outside and find out what a breeze feels like. We wrapped her up, put on one of her fasionista hats, and switched her to her portable air tank. We were only outside for a few minutes. the wind had picked up and Maya forgot her sunglasses. We just stood on the front stoop for a few minutes and took some pictures. It was one of the things that we had wanted her to experience for a long time. We never knew if she would make it long enough to feel a warm breeze on her cheek. She was able to experience a new thing today, and that was pretty cool.

This evening  Maya had many visitors. Elizabeth came by and brought us dinner. She got to see Maya for the second time. Dinner was great. We had bratwurst and potatoes and salad. Thanks Elizabeth. Maya also had Grandpa Greg and Kristi stop by. Kristi brought some cheesecake and a headband for Maya. Maya likes the head band, we will let you know her feelings about the cheesecake in a few days. Grandpa Bob and Grandma Chris also came by this evening for some Maya time. We are sipping our ginger tea and admiring Maya. It has been a nice quiet evening with the most beautiful girl in the history of the world
