Hopefully when they get older Maayan and Michal will be a little more interested in playing together

showing off her balancing skills

Enjoying the toy she "borrowed" from Bubby and Grandpa's house

Singing along

Look how nicely Maayan plays with her Abba!

There is always time for a tickling break

Maayan's room in the process of being packed

Maayan had fun playing in the moving boxes...

Maayan playing nicely all by herself

we had a take 2 later in the day

These birthday signs are fun to play with- too bad you can't see that it says "I'm 10 months old"

Maayan had fun with her tired Saba who drove all night from Chicago to bring us our car- Thanks!

I know it’s been REALLY long since I’ve updated and I’ve gotten quite a few complaints. A lot has happened in the last month. For starters, we moved to Riverdale- this is the main reason for the lack of updating. For the few weeks before we moved Ari and I spent all our “free time” packing and I’m sure the next few weeks will be spent unpacking (I’m just taking a little break now).

I’ll start with the new things that Maayan has been doing…she has gotten really good at crawling and walking while holding someone’s hand/furniture, this means that she gets into trouble a lot more. She loves to pick up crumbs and lint off the rug and eat it- you’d think we weren’t feeding her! Yesterday she discovered the Kleenex box which she really likes- she takes out a Kleenex and rips it into pieces so she can try to eat it- today when I went to take it from her hand she put it behind her back like she was trying to hide it from me, I thought that was really smart of her (even though I won and she didn’t get to eat it). Maayan has also gotten much better about spending time with people other that Ari and me which is really nice for us.

Since I will be starting work in a few weeks we interviewed a few babysitter and we hired one on Friday, her name is Cathy and she seemed really good with Maayan and very friendly- hopefully it will all work out.

Even though it seems like there should be more, that’s all I can come up with right now. I will try to update soon. Enjoy the pictures!!!
