May 28 - Officially Moving
For the time being, I am officially moving this journal page to the KuidaOsumi Blogger website that I have been using the last few months. So if you haven't already, you can go ahead and relink us there. Tony also can post there. Since this page has turned into photo entries for Maiya, I have created a new section called "Maiya's Home." It is meant to be Baby Maiya's little house on the web and for now has her photo album, month by month. We have probably taken 1000 photos, but here are maybe the top 10 pictures for each month of her life so far. I'm going to keep the photos below awhile, but eventually, I will take it down, since they have already been moved to Maiya's Home. I do still intend to write Maiya's birth story, how she got her name, and a little about our parenting style, so be sure to stay tuned. And when Maiya is old enough, and if she's interested, she can make her own website and her own blog.

Yes, the changes are a little buggy and inconsistent, I'm not sure if these comments are even working, and it's not perfect. But, these days with drool, spitup and the occasional pooping on me, life is messy and I have limited time and energy to fix the small details, much less the bigger issues of this manually-made website. Someday there'll be a big re-do, but for now I'll just leave it all here.
