Amaya's Latest

Hi all. Here are the latest going ons in little Amaya' life. An update follows the pictures.
Saturday morning trip to the AZ Science Center with mom and dad.
Amaya pointing at the cool "water works machine." It shot water in many different and creative ways.

Playtime with Jaxon. They are getting very interactive now, so it was very fun to watch.
Jaxon eyeing his toy. Amaya stooping down to interact with Jaxon.
Mommy is to slow! Amaya was just putting this little pink purse on Jaxon's head like it was a hat. So cute.
Amaya checking out Jaxon.
Jaxon putting on Amaya's lipstick, much to his daddy's dismay. Smile, smile.

Amaya had her 12-month check-up on Thursday. And it's official. She's going to be petite. She weighs 18 pounds 1 ounce and is 28 inches long. Wow. Her boyfriend Jaxon is the same size and he's only 6 months old. He'll be able to protect Amaya at the playground, so that will be nice.

Amaya continues to enjoy walking any and everywhere. She asks to go outside constantly by pointing at either the door or her sandals and saying da-da. Da-da means either "daddy" or "I wanna go outside" depending on the moment. Amaya has also been back to enjoying her pool since early-to-mid March. By her choice. No kidding. Thus her new nickname is polar baby. The cold water doesn't phase her. She loves it. Thank goodness we built a baby play area in our pool so that we can let her enjoy the water without fully getting in ourselves. Because the water is freezing. Even getting our feet and/or legs in is painful at first. Crazy. Disclaimer...we only let her stay in about 10 minutes so that she doesn't get cold stressed or anything. So nobody needs to call CPS on us. Smile, smile. The pool is starting to warm-up now, so we'll be able to let her get in more and more. Will be a fun summer. The water was about 72-74 degrees this weekend, so I got in with Amaya for the first time this season. We had a blast.

Amaya also got to enjoy a trip to the AZ Science Center this weekend, and a playdate with Jaxon. See photos above. So she had a super-fun weekend. She also enjoyed several walks up and down the sidewalks on our street, one of her favorite activities. She likes to walk down and visit the "big kids" who live a few houses down. She just loves them. Once she gets there, she just stands there, smiles at them, and watches them. It's so cute. They just love Amaya, too. So that's nice. Below is a video of this very activity.

That's all for now. Have a great day everyone!
