She had so much fun that when we said "Hey Maya, can you make a silly face?" She instantly obliged:
(it cracks me up every time)
She was able to walk everywhere!
(Yeah, I chuckle at 0:09 when she falls down. It's a proud mama chuckle---she knows how to fall! She doesn't hit her head on the ground! It's a very cute little fall. And I know she knows how to get back up)
Increased ability for independent movement = increased potential to get into trouble. Maya spotted a little girl who had the exact same pink stroller that we have. And then proceeded to proudly steal it while said little girl was sitting in a pile of rocks and having her picture taken.
Innocent little girl playing in rocks at the tip of Dave's shadow, her mom is taking her picture while dad and grandma look on adoringly. I'm trying to convince Maya to bring back the stroller she's just absconded (upper left).
Then I started laughing and hissed "Dave, take her away and I'll bring the stroller back!". He tried to grab her up, but she wasn't about to let go:
Note the amused, proud expression.
That amused expression lasted for about 20 more seconds, until I peeled the stroller from her death grip and she had a holy screaming tantrum as Dave carried her away. Luckily, I had stickers in the diaper bag, since stickers solve everything.
