Mayana’s Week…

Mayana has had a wonderful week. Every day is a new discovery and a new reason to fall in love with my little girl. She is so amazing.

She’s coping so well at daycare, and seems to really enjoy it. I’m really proud of how well she’s settled in. All her carers tell me every day how adoreable she is, and how clever. They can’t get over how advanced and refined she is with her motor skills. All that stuff that makes my Mama-head swell with pride. They’ve actually started to transition her into the toddler room already, and last week she even fell asleep on a mat in a room full of other kids!

She’s teething at the moment; four molars and four eyeteeth are trying to make an appearance. Her poor little bottom is red raw and she has the cold-like symptoms that are usually synonymous with her teething. The night times are a little miserable and I hate seeing her sad and sore.

She has started saying ‘bubbles’, because they are one of her favourite things, ‘Papa’ is her favourite person right now, and the only one who can calm her down when she wakes up at night. She is still obsessed with ‘duckies’, and apparently there is a ‘five little ducks’ book at daycare which she loves. When other kids have it she runs after them demanding, “Ta! Ta!”. ‘Tinka Tinka’ (Twinkle Twinkle) is a favourite song, and she can do all the actions. My little baby is turning into a real little girl and I love it, but it scares me at the same time.
