5/4/2011 147 Days Old

May 4th, 2011

On the 147th day in the life of the most beautiful girl in the history of the world the morning began peacefully. Maya woke up just before I needed to leave for work. Erin was able to get her calmed down, and she was almost back to sleep by the time I left. While I was at work Grandma Patti came by to take care of Maya. For weeks now Maya has been practicing and getting better at reaching her little hand up and grabbing her cannula. Today she succeeded in pulling the cannula clear off her face. Grandma said “she pulled it off then swung it over her head like a lasso.” I can imagine she had a look of satisfaction on her face. Grandma’s face was probably a little different. Erin and Grandma were able to get her back to normal.

When I got home B.J. was over to see Maya. Grandma and Maya were siting on the couch. Maya slept for most of the day. She was snoozing when I got home.

This evening Grandma Kathy came by to see Maya. Maya is still tired and stayed asleep for most of the time. Our night is winding down now. We are hoping that Maya sleeping all day doesn’t mean that she will be up all night. Fingers crossed.
