maya is 5 months.

Today Maya turned 5 months old. I feel like she was just born, but she's so advanced for her age she seems so much older than 5 months. A couple nights ago Dan and I heard "dadada da da" so Dan went to check on Indie. He realized Indie was dead asleep and that it was Maya just talking in her crib.It's so funny that they sound the same and say the same stuff. Maya sat up by herself for the first time, but she hasn't been able to do it again. She loves rice cereal. She cries if I don't feed it to her fast enough. She's a pretty chill baby. She's only fussy when she's tired. But she's like super fussy. Like yelling, freaking out, stiff body fussy. She usually stops crying when we put her down though. She still sleep all the time. She takes like 4 short naps & 1 long one. Lazy baby.She's starting to sleep longer at night. She's been waking up at the same time as Indie. Lately Maya has been sucking on everything. Her blankets, toys, & her fingers are always soaked. She needs to slow down a bit. Everyday she seems to be getting smarter. Soon I'll have two toddlers running around.

going to feed the duckies.


Last week my little brother Daniel graduated from high school.
It's crazy how fast time flies.
I can't believe Daniel is an adult and done with high school.
Everyone in my family babys Daniel. 
But I have to admit I do too {sometimes}.
He is the youngest.
We have always had a love/hate relationship.
We always hang out but argue most of the time we are together.
Dan & Daniel have a good relationship.
They are always planing things together.
I like that they get along.
I'm eager to see what he will do in the future.
But for now he's just excited to visit our family in Hawaii.
Congratulations Daniel.

{daniel was trying to get indie to look at the camera. she just wanted some candy}

Dan had to work so he missed the graduation. 
It was so long.ha
I wanted to show up when they started calling the kids names but that didn't happen.
Indie and Maya were good for about 30 minutes but Indie got really sick of sitting.
and Maya just wanted to sleep.

after the graduation we went to my sister's house.
indie had tons of fun running around and playing with the big kids.
after we had a bonfire & indie loved singing and playing the ukulele with uncle malu.

We had Daniel's graduation party on Wednesday & it was fun to spend time with family.
I love when all the kids are together they have so much fun.
I forget that Indie is getting bigger & it's funny to watch her run around with the girls and play games with them.

four months.

Maya Sue is 4 months. 
She is 14.75 lbs & 25 inches.
She is in the 70th percentile for weight and the 90th percentile for height. 
and her head is in the 30th percentile.

This week she's been wanting to eat and sleep all day long. She'll stay up for like an hour if we're lucky. I think she's just growing.  Maya is getting so chubby. She's only fussy when she wants to eat or sleep. She stops crying when she sees her bottle and reaches for it. When I finally lay her in the crib she rolls over and sucks on her fingers till she falls asleep. She likes to chill on the ground and watch gabba with her sissy. She is such an easy baby.

She is so advanced for her age. She has been rolling over since she was 3 weeks. She rolls both ways still. and just last week she started to SCOOT forward. We could not believe that she could do it. Dan saw that she was looking at Indie's doll, so he put the doll in front of her and sure enough she scooted her little body towards the doll till she had it in her tiny hands. Now just a couple of days later she is a pro. She can even turn. She always rolls over onto her tummy when we put her on the floor but after a while she gets tired from scooting so she'll roll onto her back and cry till we pick her up.She'll be crawling soon. And I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worried. My poor home decor will have to sit a box for another year or so.

Some things my girl likes

Smiling with her tongue out
When Dan sings to her
Having her head touch/rubbed/brushed
Grabbing things
Being tickled
Sucking on the hand & arm
{she loves her big sis. she can be screaming bloody murder and then see Indie's face and start smiling.}
Watching people sing & dance on tv
{maya is so talkative. but her talking is so loud and high pitched it's more like screaming}

We can't wait to see all the things Maya will learn in the next month. She's already done some pretty amazing things in just this last week. I'm kind of hoping my next monthly update of  Maya will say she's crawling ha.
We'll See.
