Maya turned 6 last week. She has been so excited! The day after her birthday she asked me, "Mom, am I 6 1/2 now?" To her there is something special about that 1/2.
Maya is so funny. The only thing she wanted for her birthday was a gloworm. Halle had gotten one for Christmas and Maya kept taking it and sleeping with it. I figured that was an easy present to get her.
On the day of her birthday she got to go on a field trip with her kindergarten class to the aquarium. That was something that made her day extra special. Plus, she got to wear a crown there.
On the day of her family party she told me she wanted a zebra cake, I guess to match her zebra shirt (Thanks Maddie!). However, it was too late for me to try and do that, so she just got a chocolate cake.
When we sang to her this year she only hid her eyes rather than trying to hide her whole body from us like last year. What a shy girl she is, even with just family!
