5/5/2011 148 Days Old

May 5th, 2011

On the 148th day in the life of the most beautiful girl in the history of the world the morning began peacefully. Maya stayed asleep as I got ready and left for work. Michelle came by today to take care of Maya while Erin worked. Maya stayed awake for the morning hours, and again in the afternoon. She is getting good with her left hand. Today she was able to get her hand to her mouth. Shortly after a lip puckering her tongue would come out to taste her fingers. She is starting to explore her world with more than just her eyes and ears. Her hands and mouth are new tools for discovery.

This evening Grandma Kathy came by with Tacos for Cinco de Mayo or Cinco de Maya as grandma would say. We ate our tacos and took turns holding Maya while watching The Big Bang Theory. Later in the evening Travis and Krissie came by to get some Maya time. It has been a long week and we are looking forward to some recovery time this weekend.
