We are traveling abroad right now hence the lack of updates! Here’s a photo of bean with her mouth stained blue from some cake frosting. Trip photos coming next week hopefullly.
I haven’t been taking enough photos lately, hence the lapse in blogging.
Tom’s friend got Maia this stuffed animal. It’s a Nintendo character whose real name I think is Isabel, but Maia calls her “Cute Cute Doggie.”
Maia went to visit the preschool she will be attending. There is a girl named Maya in the class. Tom reported that this led to much confusion when they were trying to play Duck Duck Goose. 😀
Beanie later reported to me that, “One Maia is M-A-I-A and another looks like Korean!” Haha, which makes no sense since the other Maia/Maya is definitely not Korean.
Tom has been trying to coax Maia to voluntarily put her head under water for months without much luck. Then, at her first “big girl” swim lesson, Maia took one look at her classmates doing it and decided it looked like fun.
As with gymnastics class, age 3 is when Maia moves up to the next swimming level, which is non-parent-participation. Tomorrow is her first Starfish class. Fingers crossed it goes well.
I observed Maia’s last class as a Tadpole:
She appears to be somewhere between swimming and drowning…
It will be a little sad that she won’t be having regular fun-with-dada time in the pool any more.
