April for Los S ...C is 17 months old

Hooray for April! C turned 17 months old, and she started saying so much more and putting things together in short sentences like, "Mama noches" (code for Buenas Noches Mama) and "Hola Coco" or "Abri Wee" (code for please open the backdoor I'd like to go down the slide). She mastered climbing up into chairs on her own, she got excited about skyping with out of town friends (like Tia Ana who was traveling a lot)...and she was pushing bedtime..night owl like Daddy. Nearly all her initial molars are in (1 more to go), and she loves bananas. This month she also got a little car that she LOVES and we walk all the way to Mimi and Babo's in it. Sometimes we walked all the way to the Liberty Cafe where we will share a gelato cone together. We are  loving our mini and although she is in tanttrum mode and has gotten into the bad habit of pinching...she is sweet as honey most of the time.  All in all April was fun! Mama C went to Portland for work and upon returning home C& D had a lovely getaway weekend at the Biltmore Hotel. Here are some of our favorite pictures from the month of April.
Friday playtime with las primas

Friday night dinner with las primas..."Uncle Don's Mac and Cheese is better than mommy's" Olivia proclaimed at the table over and over again!
If you come to play and stay to eat...a bath will follow! C 17 mos, J 2.5 yrs, O 5.5 yrs

Bath followed by PJs and Uncle D and Tia C's bed with Beauty and The Beast!

I went to Portland for a workshop for the museum. It was rainy and cloudy all weekend and I barely saw Mt. Hood---this picture was proof of it being visible from Portland.

First time with a club since C was was not pretty...but it could have been uglier...

She put this on herself...I cannot make this up! 

Hope April was as memorable for you as it was for us with our whirling dervish of a child!
