I plan to regain my grip on my life enough shortly to start posting again, including Maia's birthday letter. In the meantime, here is a short interlude from a couple of days ago when Chloë and Maia were "racing" (i.e., Chloë would browbeat Maia into agreeing to race, then take off down the hallway, shouting "Go!" about halfway down):
Chloë: I won!
Maia: I two!
