Maya had a great time at her party and informed her daddy that she “is going to grow up next week.” That comment actually made Jeff rather sad, and he asked me what I had been telling her. 🙂 Daddy’s and their little girls are just the sweetest thing to me. (Below you can see a picture of my daddy, aka “Papa” now.)
Maya has grown up a ton in the past year. It’s amazing the changes between 2 and 3 years of age. Maya has such a sweet, sensitive spirit and a really tender heart. If she ever sees anyone upset or crying, she immediately tries to comfort them. (That usually means she takes them some food or gives them her sippy cup. Not sure what that says about my comforting tools, but we won’t worry about that right now.) She sincerely empathizes with the person in distress. When my sister went to Myanmar this year, there were times that Maya would see me cry, and she immediately started to tend to me.
