Little things

When C says "coconuts" she's referring to polka-dots... And today I discovered she like it when it's "lloviendo rapido"... Direct translation, raining fast.

July in Miami (C 2.8)

Hot fun in the summer! We spent the month in camp, visiting museums, celebrating the 4th, Bastille Day and friends birthday parties. C now is full on bi-lingual, she remembers everything and everyone...she loves Princess Sofia, riding her bike around the block, and playing with friends.

June 2013 in Miami

Still saying things like "saquepines" instead of "calcetines" and "A mi quiere leche" but mastering the English language as well, "Oh, papi is working" and making requests like "I want La Bamba"...wearing mostly "calzones de nina grande" while at home and most of all enjoying her summer at camp, park and friends pools.

Over and Out

There are some things that C does that are very ME...and other things that are very D. For example, she loves her some shoes....i.e. very ME, she doesn't care for naps, ME...staying up late, VERY D! Last night I tried putting her to bed at 9:00 (which I know is late, but it's early for this child). She did not want to go to bed...she staged WWIII, and would not go to bed. Finally at around 9:30 we heard her door knob twisting, and out into the living room she came.

Me:  C, did you climb out of your crib?
C: Si
D: How? 
C: No se
Me: C, come show Mami...

[we walk to her room] 

C: There, I left (she points at the crib). 

New challenge, unfortunately accepted. Wish us luck!

May in Miami: C officially 2.5

Our sweet girl is officially 2.5 and acting like it. Her ability to communicate with us in both languages is as easy as breathing to her. She's singing, dancing, coloring and picking out most of her clothes. This month she also got a scooter which she loves to go around the block on.  She is still saying things like "A mi please" and started picking up funny phrases like "relax Ceci!" All in all she is a joy, we're blessed and we're having a great time together. This is a great age!
