Play time in the tub.
A few weeks ago Maya discovered a new play space. It's always been there but for some reason she's never been that interested in it. One day she dumped her dolls in there. Then she wanted to go after them. That's become her new favorite place to hang out. She actually stays there for a long time (in Maya terms). When I watch her, I pretend like I can see her thoughts. When she talks to her dollies, when she makes them dance or hugs them. I hear her making up stories and pretending. It's magical to see her play in this way.
