Mayana thinks Torren’s pretty cool.. I think she wants to grab that thing in his eyebrow! He’s a bit of a Mayana hog, just like Opa!

Mayana checking out her favourite new toy: a bright orange ball which she loves to roll back and forwards with Nanna.

jeans baby

Mayana wore her first pair of jeans today. So cute! She also got these sweet fluffy red booties. They make her feet look super-chunky! They are the first form of footwear (other than socks) that have managed to stay on for more than 5 minutes...

love love love!

I swear, she gets cuter every day! I was trying to take a photo of Mayana's unique thumb-sucking technique, but she turned to look at the camera at the last second. I forgave her though when I saw how gorgeous the photo turned out. You can still kind of see how she sucks her thumb!

swinging + pear

 June 09 00116

I hooked up the swing we were given for Mayana the other day. She absolutely LOVES it. She really seems to enjoy being outside, and takes in all the different sounds, and loves to look at the trees and plants in the garden. Plus, the swing is fun!

June 09 00133

“I want some of what you’ve got, Mama!” Since she eats pear anyway, I figured it couldn’t hurt her to have a bit of a suck/chew on a chunk of my pear.

June 09 00132 

She seemed to enjoy it, and I think it felt nice on her poor gums in any case!

June 09 00109Now… hat number 1, according to the tag is a “Russian Doll Hat”.

June 09 00096 June 09 00099

Hat number two is what Alexie and I like to call a Heidi and Sven hat:

June 09 00103

Whatever you want to call them, they’re both gorgeous huh!?

The Sven & Heidi hat also came with mittens, but I’m not sure that Mayana loves them so much.

June 09 00064This is Mayana’s most recent face. She has pulled it fairly constantly over this last weekend. It must feel funny.. chewing on her bottom lip like that. 

June 09 00066Shopping always tires Mayana out.. at least it means she gets to have an afternoon nap!
