I think we just missed one…

Posted by mymaysa on July 6, 2009

It’s been over a month since Maysa graduated from her DOC band but since that time, I feel like she has gone through one big growth spurt that we just missed out of the band.  Her sandals don’t fit anymore.  We’ve had to buy her new ones.  Her dresses are getting shorter, her tee-shirts are getting tighter and she has gained 2 or 3 pounds in the past month.  Needless to say that her head has also grown.  At least, that’s the way I feel, and it seemed to have gotten wider as well.  I am starting to see where things don’t look right all over again and last night, I cut her hair up front to give her bangs in hopes to cover the width in her forehead.  She’ll always be cute, but I don’t think that she is meant to have bangs, not with hair that’s so curly.  Thank God that her hair is still long enough to be tighed up at the top of her head.

Here are a few pictures of her:

In this one, she is giggling while her sister is being silly with her.  I wish I had videotaped this moment.  Her little laughs were priceless.

In this next one, after agreeing with me that Mommy did an awful job trimming that hair, you’ll probably notice that she is sitting on the toilet stool.  Yes, she always asks to sit on the potty to go “pee-pee”.  Then, as soon as she sits, she asks for some toilet paper to wipe her buttocks.  Needless to say that, despite the serious look, there hasn’t been any “pee-pee” yet IN the potty.  It’s a start though, and I’ll take it!

I just found this other picture of her taken last week at Sesame Place.  It’s an awesome place for younger kids, by the way.  Do you see what I mean by “my baby has gotten bigger all of a sudden!”  She is not even a year and a half yet in this one!
