Hello Everyone! Once again it seems it takes me a million years to update our blog. All is well at our end! My father-in-law’s surgery was a success! YEA! THANK YOU everyone for all your kind thoughts and prayers! He came home today (Sunday, February 20, 2011)! He’s unbelievable how well he has recovered. Maya’s surgery is still set for February 28th! We had her pre-op appointment with her surgeon this past week. John and I decided we literally need to move all of the crackers, chips and cereal into the laundry room during her 3-week recovery because she will have a fit if she can’t eat her favorite foods. We figure out of sight, out of mind, right? Somehow with our smart little Maya, I don’t see that flying. I’m sure she’ll figure out a way to scale the washing machine and get to her snacks. What a recovery period this will be! Madeline and Will are on mid-winter break this week. Yea for Maya! She loves having her sister & brother around. The Spring girls are coming for a visit on Tuesday. We can’t wait to host them at our house finally! We’ll be sure to take photos of the girls for our next blog post. We registered Madeline at Marian High School this past week. Wow – I still can’t believe I’ll have a child in high school in September. I still remember taking Madeline to preschool. I’m going to remember this with Maya…time just seems to fly! Will and his best buddy Patrick had a project in the science fair this past Thursday! I actually think they had more fun seeing everyone else’s projects rather than standing at their post! What an evening! Maya was able to meet all of the teachers and parents who have not met her yet. She was the hit of the fair! We were hit with a lot of snow today! We went to Will’s flag football game this afternoon. Came out and it was snowing like crazy! Maya still doesn’t enjoy it so she didn’t exactly welcome the sight of it! Maya’s vocabulary continues to grow everyday! She’s starting to put together two words now! We’re so proud of her. She’s come so far in such a short period of time! This past week she purposely dropped something, looked at me and said, “Oh Maya!” I couldn’t help but crack up. I probably say it to her 100 times a day so it was bound to cross into her vocabulary! Stay tuned for more “Maya Adventures”! Something new seems to pop up each day!
