Maya could be a lot of things . . .

Last night I was going through pictures, and I couldn't help but notice the many talents of Maya.  Below are some highlights, presented superlative-style:


Most Precocious Chopstick Handler (she can even work them in her sleep!)


 Most Likely to Eat a Scrabble Tile Mid-Game

 Most Cheerful Post-Op Patient

Cutest Easter Bunny

Avid Food Enthusiast

Most Daring Aquatic Gymnast
 
Most Determined

Most Proud (and rightfully so)

Most Adoring Pet Owner


Some of the pictures gave me insight as to Maya's bright future, and the many ways it could go . . .

She could be a reowned chef . . .

or a brilliant herpetologist . . .


or a wildlife wrangler . . .


 or an arctic explorer.

Well, those are all possibilities.  But one thing's for sure . . .

 she's going to be the sweetest big sister :)

And I think she's happy about it.

Dave, Maya & I are ecstatic to present to you . . . baby #2, scheduled to arrive on or around October 3rd :)

What wonderful news! I think I found out before Jan...Those photos of Maya were absolutely marvelous! Although in all fairness I think the 'Wildlife Wrangler'may not be in the cards...by looks of her expression...love to all of you.
