7/13/2011 216 Days Old

July 13th, 2011

On the 216th day in the life of the most beautiful girl in the history of the world the morning began peacefully. Actually Maya woke up really angry, but that was before I woke up. By the time I woke up Maya was back asleep and finishing her early morning feeding. Erin had to go in to worl today so once again me and Maya camped out on the couch.

Maya stayed asleep all morning. On the days when Maya sleeps all day she normally is up once and hour or so and needs comforting. That was not the case this morning. She slept peacefully until 10:45. I guess she got some good sleep in because for the first time in almost two weeks she woke up and stayed awake for several hours. We used our time wisely and got in as many exercises as we could.

Around noon Sara came by to see Maya. She had not seen Maya since she was three months old. She was very impressed with Maya’s growth. A short while after Sara left Maya went back to sleep. And she stayed asleep or close to it for most of the rest of the evening. She missed out on dinner with Sam and Gayle, and minute to win it.

After Sam and Gayle had left Maya on Erin got in the tub. Maya is still not a fan of the bath tub. We will see if she has the same response when we take her swimming on friday. I’m hoping the baths in Erin’s arms will prepare her for a dip in the pool. We will have to wait and see.

She also created some awesome hair during her afternoon nap.
