She has a tooth!

We've been keeping a watchful eye on her bottom gums, two big bumps that have been threatening to turn into teeth for (literally) months. Today I accidentally noticed that a top tooth has snuck in when we weren't watching!

We think it was in the last 2 or 3 days, as she's been waking up an extra time in the middle of the night, and is a bit crankier than normal . . .

The Sequel: Maya loves dogs. Too much.

Tonight we took Maya to a dog park, where she was hysterical. She laughed and laughed and laughed. I tried to video tape it on Dave's cell phone . . . he said "we should have brought the camera!" Then I said "She's going to get sick!"

And then she did.

She laughed so hard that she puked all over herself (which cracked us up). Then immediately started cracking up again.

And we got it on (really bad, cell phone quality) tape.

The quality is bad, but here's what to watch/listen for:
1. She's cracking up
2. We are surprised & hysterical as she throws up (which you can see, a little)
3. She immediately is laughing again.

Maya loves dogs. A lot.

This is a video of Maya watching a YouTube video on my computer. The video that she was watching was of beagle puppies. For whatever reason, she's going through a phase where even the sight of dogs cracks her up :)

It's been 3 days since Maya's adenoid surgery and she is recovering well. She has periods of whiny-ness, sometimes is eating a bit less than usual, is super congested, and is not 100% herself. But she's recovering from surgery and teething (no teeth yet, but the front bottom two are so close!), so we're just waiting and giving the occasional Tylenol.
The doctor said that the adenoids were at least as big as when he last saw them (he thinks that they were slightly bigger) and that the surgery went smoothly. She was VERY tired afterwards and wouldn't eat until after 1pm (surgery was done at about 8:10am) so we had to spend a good part of the day in the hospital. We watched her sleep and tried once an hour or so to wake her up and feed her. We shared the large room with a few other kids who were also coming out of similar surgeries (Maya was the youngest by a few years). Here is a glimpse into what the day looked like:

Our bracelets, and Maya's anklet

Daddy & Maya in the pediatric play/waiting room (notice the pout . . .she was getting hungry and we were trying to distract her)

Pom-poms are a good distraction

I LOVE pom-poms!

Hmm, these pjs may be a bit too big

Clearly, still drugged up

This is how I feel, Dad

No, no food! I mean it!

Seriously, back off guys. I'm beat.

Starting to play

Hi everybody!

Cutting off the IV board & tape . . . FREEDOM!
