Baby Maya at six months!

Wow, I'm six months old!!! And just as cute as the day I was born. :)

This picture was taken the beginning of May, but I can't believe how much Maya is growing! We have started solid foods recently, and her current repetoire includes sweet potatoes, avocado, rice cereal, and banana. All homemade and organic, she's one healthy bub! We're still trying to figure out her eye color, which seems to hover somewhere between blue/grey, hazel, and brown--which pretty much covers just about all the options. :)

In the writing world, Rachel Carson was born on May 27, 1907 in Springdale, Pennsylvania. I have long admired her work, particularly Silent Spring, a book that was both groundbreaking and ahead of her time. First published in 1962 as a serial in the New Yorker, it helped to launch the environmental movement, educating the general population on the dangers of pesticide use, specifically DDT. More than 40 years later, her work maintains its relevancy, as well as both its critics and supporters.

Oh. My. God. That is just too precious for words. I think I'm going to go buy a beret for my niece right now!! And until my niece was about a year old, her eyes would shift between dark blue, brown and hazel too! Now they've settled down to a really pretty brown/gold colour.

Maya's a doll!!! As to the eye color -- I could have sworn my youngest had blue eyes, while in the hospital, but it turned out his eyes were chocolate brown and just reflecting the sky through the window. They were always brown; I just couldn't tell, at first. My eldest, however, started life with blue eyes which then turned brown with golden speckles. I think it's fascinating how eyes can change during the first two years, or so, of life.
