Maya Eight Months Old

It is almost 11 o’clock at night and I can barely hold my eyes open. I haven’t slept properly. For the last eight months! I am trying to think of something clever, interesting and catchy to write in this post but I can’t. My mind is gone, totally exhausted.
My little princess is eight months old! Can you believe it?

Exactly this time last year, when I was almost six months pregnant, I began to experience symptoms which usually indicate that something is totally wrong with the pregnancy. And when I think of all the fears and tears, hospital visits and medical examinations, I can only be extremely grateful of having a little eight months old monster at home. Regardless of the sleep deprivation!
Maya is growing by the minute. She is smarter and much more alert about the things going on around her. She is now able to crawl steadily and has a sense of orientation of where she is going to. It is incredible to witness these developments in a little person who, only eight months ago, was a skinny, tiny newborn. And oh how much she loves to chatter in her sweet non-understandable baby language. She might be a singer one day!
Maya is a big fan of the outdoors. She loves being outside. And when I take her for a walk on the baby carrier she likes to observe the trees we go under. I think she likes the gentle movements of the leaves and the sound the wind makes. It is amazing to see how such little things can a make a big impression to a baby. And especially in the fall the leaves are beautiful.
As tired as I am, and no matter how many times I have to wake up tonight, I am looking forward to tomorrow and the day after that and the day after that! As long as I get to spend them with you little angel! Happy 8 months, baby!
