Lets take a moment to appreciate how much Maia has changed since I first got her. . . . . Oh. Hang on? she has not really change at all. Never mind! 😂. Seriously though, she hasn't changed much at all. The first 3 pictures are recent ones. The last 2 are from maybe a week or two after I got her. She is still dark and purple. I truthfully expected her to lighten up a lot, blizzards are usually lighter. I know there are ones called midnight blizzards, I just did not expect that I might end up with one when I got her.
