Maiabeanie continues to grow.  Her noggin is now too squished in her old helmet so we got this sweet robot one!

Since starting preschool her English language skills have grown by leaps and bounds.  Sadly, she has started resisting using Korean at all.  Also, she sucks her thumb a lot more.  I’m not sure if this is related to starting preschool but I have a feeling it is.  I think we will have to tackle this issue fairly soon, and it won’t be pretty.

She has gotten very into labeling people as girls or as boys.  When she mentions kids from school (or gymnastics or anywhere else), she only talks about the girls and is not at all interested in engaging with boys.


2019-01-22 updated bean room

Here are some more changes we made to Maia’s room.  We used some curtain hanging wire and clips from Ikea to make an easily swappable art gallery.  I love it.

Maia’s current favorite show is Octonauts, about a group of animals who explore the ocean and help out sea creatures.  I think it is pretty awesome myself.  It’s very cute and even educational without being annoying about it.  So I bought Maia one of the Octonauts books and it is on current heavy rotation.

Bean furnishings

We are (slowly) purging some of our clutter and replacing it with a few nicer/newer things.  So far we have managed to clear out a large space in Maia’s room.  We got her some fun stuff from Ikea but now we need to actually move it into her room.  😉

Christmas scooter

Oh dear, I haven’t posted in forever.  I’m not sure if Tom will have any good photos from Christmas to pass along to me, but for now here is Beanbean trying out her present from me:

We had Christmas Eve dinner at my parents’ house, then we went back the next morning to make brunch and open presents.  Maia got quite the haul.  She asked to have Christmas again.
