Since she was born here, she's officially a dual Nica-U.S. citizen, and getting her Nica passport is on today's to-do list. We're planning a "baby tour" to the states in November and it turns out that she'll need both for leaving and entering the country.
Speaking of Quinn, she's totally excited to be the big sister. She's adapting very well to the change and is constantly washing her hands so she can "hold the baby." Her hands have never been so clean and Maya is getting lots and lots of good hugs. Win win.
Last weekend we put in a brief appearance at la Misión's annual Día de la Biblia celebration (see here for photos from last year). Both Quinn and Maya got to wear their new dresses, although Maya basically slept through the whole thing.
We have been extremely lucky to have had family visiting us during this time. Having a slew of people to play with Quinn and read her books has definitely helped with the transition. Here's my sister Jessica holding her new niece. Aunt Holly also came down to visit us for a few weeks, and although she had to go back before Maya arrived, she was super-helpful and we had a lot of fun.
Here's my Mom and Quinn hanging out with Maya and teaching her some new life skills.

I love hugs! Just recently, Maya has started exiting that initial "sleepy baby" phase. Her eyes are open a lot more now and she's looking around and starting to make sense of the world. She seems pretty excited for anyone to hold her, and has even made friends with a toy owl.
