Auntie Erin & Uncle JJ

There really are no words to express how blessed we really are...and there is nothing like Christmas to remind me. Maya was obviously spoiled silly...well we all were really. The Matthews - Trimble family was in town for the holiday and we were able to see the Rogers on Christmas morning too. The whole gift situation was a little overwhelming for Pea so we took it in stages...she opened presents for days...literally. Her auntie Erin, and avid Barbie collector, gave Pea her first Barbie doll and to my complete surprise she loved it. She immediately wanted the ponytail "OFF!" so that Barbie's hair could look as wild as hers does. Maya also loved all of the eating that takes place over the holidays...constant snacking for little Pea.

Oh Christmas Tree

The Christmas Tree was a HUGE hit at our house this year! As you can see Maya was quite the helper when it was time to put it up, and she really loved unpacking all of the decorations. It was really funny because she wasn't really sure if the tree was her new pet or not. She kissed the tree and petted it, put on ornaments, took them off (800 times), turn on the lights, turned off the lights...it was so entertaining the tree stayed with us until mid-January!


Little Miss Independent

Maya has really started showing us her personality! She is very independent, curious, and vocal. She loves to be silly, dance, sweep, play peek-a-boo, and read. She reads and reads and reads. As you can see she is quite tall for her age, but still kind of a lightweight....here are her stats at 15 months:
Height: 32.5"
Weight: 24 lbs
Words: Hiyee (Hi), ByeBye, Kitty, MaMa, Da (dad), NO, hotttt, nee (nose), eye, eee (ear), hair, maaa (mouth), pee, poopoo, pease (please), thank you, PaPa (grandpa), bee buu (belly button), Braa (Brad), Tree, apple, brrrrr, whoa, uh oh, Ni (nigel our cat), pig, duckduck, cow, moo, keee (keys), ba (bottle), all done, two (not one or three...just two), My AH (Maya), Up, E.E. (Eric), ball, hat....and many other things that we haven't decoded yet :)
Favorite Foods: Broccoli, baby cheese puffs, berries, toast w/ jam, spinach pasta


We spent Thanksgiving with family and our great friend Patrick! Maya was really sick on Thanksgiving, so it wasn't that memorable for her. She was able to play with her best friend Brad and the boys watched more football that I thought was possible!


Football Saturday

As you know, we are a football loving family! I have been able to go to two Oregon games (of course I did take one photo!) and Ty has been busy traveling with Linfield to most of their games as the team chaplain and radio announcer. Maya is getting pretty good at throwing her hands up when we yell touchdown!! Ty's so proud, he has even taught her about laying on the couch, eating snacks and watching the game (or games!).
