Maya's Progress

Maya is now 9 months old and growing up very quickly. She's just getting her first teeth (down the bottom) and Olivia and I know about it! Her favorite pastimes are sitting at the window, banging on it and making "bah bah bah" noises; pulling herself to standing in her cot and on other furniture; smearing Marie biscuits or Vegemite sandwiches all over herself and her highchair, ingesting some occasionally; crawling after her big brother, who delights in playing with her; and, of course, exploring the rapidly expanding world (to her reach, anyway) of our house and surrounds. Maya's just not quite up to crawling on grass yet - she hasn't got used to the texture - but if she was, we'd be chasing her everywhere.
