First day of Wet Tots swim class with mommy at the Y
As you can see from the pictures above, I've been very busy this month. Mommy took me to visit lots of friends. I saw Peg, Ashlyn, Summer, George Y., Lani, George & Iku, Gary, Glen, Nobuko, PJ & Yoko. Lily, Roxane, Uncle Darin, Auntie Sao, cousins Kyle and Kevin, Mike, Laura & Amani came to visit me as well. Went to the WLA Farmer's Market with Nona. I got to finally meet my cousins Danika and Chris, Aunt Nina and we all went to Talpa's with Grandpa Larry, and I went to Chris' baseball game. I also went to the Ikeguchi Family Reunion (my great grandma's sister's family), and the Kuida Family got together for a big family photo for Grandma and Grandpa's 42nd anniversary present! When Daddy's friends Bill & Pauline came from Delaware for Daddy's 20th Reunion from Uni High, we went to Johnnie's Pastrami's with them, Greg & Danny, went to Pasta Factory with Hector & Erika, and then went to a BBQ at Danny & Michelle's house. Their daughter Catalina played with me. I also went to Great Leap to visit and also went to mommy's old work, GLSBR, and visited with Janice, Norin, and mommy's old co-workers. I went to Little Tokyo two nights in a row, one for a party for Lisa, and then for a JACS meeting, and then went to Koraku to celebrate mommy & daddy's 10 year anniversary.

Bonding with Daddy - Happy 1st Father's Day!
Maiya's 4-Month Blog:
At 20 weeks (approx. 4 3/4 months), I weighed 15 pounds, 2 ounces and stood at 26 1/2 inches. The most amazing thing about this month is that I got 2 teeth! I had been drooling for weeks! Mommy and Daddy thought I might be teething because I was kinda cranky, and it turns out that I was! Now that my teeth came in, I'm a much happier girl.
I nurse about 8-10 times a day, although I'm starting to get kinda distracted, because there are so many things to see and do. I love playing with my friends, Giraffe, Max the Monkey, Wiggles and Ms. Turtle. I can sit up better, especially if someone helps me to sit up, I sleep about 5-7 hours at a time, and I'm going to bed earlier, around 10pm. I don't take real long naps, but I take 3 or 4 catnaps a day. Daddy says I love to laugh and squeal a lot.
The funnest thing about this month is that I started taking swim class with mommy at the Y! The first time I was a little bit quiet because I had never seen so much water, but I am beginning to like it a lot. We sing a lot of songs like the "Hokey Pokey," "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star," and I like to practice kicking and paddling. Mommy & Daddy joined the Y, and have worked out a few times.
Ok, I'm getting tired. It's time to eat! Until next time, ciao!
