Today feels like a momentous day. Maya identified herself by her name for the first time. Only she decided that her name is Aung. I can hardly pronounce this name she's picked. Where the heck did she get it?! I found out that this is her name because when we were playing the laundry game today (this is where I try to distract her from the fun of sklonking through my piles like so many fallen leaves by picking up each piece of clothing and asking whose it is), she identified all her clothes calmly as belonging to Aung. She's enjoying the new found power of being able to call herself by name, and the attention it gets her. After all the trouble we had naming this child, maybe its better if she just picks one for herself. Who knows, maybe she'll change her mind just like we did. She's not even two yet, after all.

Give Aung a big hug from Nana. I love that she connected with her Buddha-daddy. The amazing children of this Day . . . of which you are one.
