    Didn’t you say she was drooling a lot? Perhaps she’s teething, in which case a plate would be a lot more attractive than a bagel.

    Maya is some sort of drool spigot, but there’s no sign of teeth yet. This is all about figuring out the world by putting it in her mouth.

    You know what they say about the apple not falling far from the tree? They say, “Don’t eat the tree, moron.”
