My Dearest Julis,
I was very proud of you this past week.  You made this 10 block tower all on your own!

By the look on your face you are really excited about this accomplishment too.
Or maybe you were just anticipating the really fun part...

Kicking it down :)

Another activity you have recently taken up is combing my hair and I have to say it is one of my favorites.

You are so gentle and sweet it puts a smile on my face and fills my heart.

Today, I am grateful we get to enjoy tender moments like these, which I will cherish forever.

Feliz dia mama!

Hola Julia. Hace un par de años celebramos el primer día de la madre. En ese entonces no tenias idea que era un día diferente a cualquier otro, mas que por la suerte de ir a desayunar a un lugar distinto (Restaurante La Luz para tu referencia).
No tenias voz ni voto en lo que vestías, por razones obvias, así que te tocaba usar vestidos que te hacían ver muy linda, pero no necesariamente tu estilo.

Esta vez el dia de la madre fue un poco distinto para vos (comparado con aquel entonces). Por supuesto hicimos el tour de las abuelas y bisabuelas, pero esta vez no solo pudiste escoger vestir tu capa y tu sombrilla sino que ademas pasaste un muy buen rato jugando con tu prima Tere en su ultimo fin de semana en Costa Rica por estas vacaciones.
Otra evidencia de como vas creciendo son el hecho que pides tu música cuando vamos en el auto, algo que no es nuevo salvo por el hecho que no es la musica de la teacher Caro, sino Hey Soul Sister de Train, Me Voy de Julieta Venegas o Here Comes The Sun de George Harrison en vivo en Japón.
Primero va la bola...

Despues voy yo!!

Gracias Tere por todo el cariño y diversion...

Y gracias a mama por ser la increible mama que es!!!

Time Gone By

My Dearest Julis,
I have not recorded anything for a few weeks, going back to work full time has had a unexpected side effect: computer overdose... as it turns out the last thing I feel like doing on the weekends now is opening the computer. In any case I am certain I will overcome the aversion, in the meantime here are some pics of what has been going on lately.

We went to Manuel Antonio a couple of weeks ago.  Lately you have been in full "copy what you see" mode and during this weekend you picked up a couple of things.

Like wearing goggles. Your dad uses them because he has contact lenses, you use them because he uses them. 

Between you and me... they do look better on you ;P

Tere taught you how to pick up hermit crabs and how to overcome the fear of having them run up your hand.

And of course picking up this habit was just a matter of time.
A family that gambles together stays together :)

You got the basics down, throwing of the same suit as the one in the pack down and screaming "Lo Compro!"

Gotta love the sitting pose, just like your Daddys.

Last weekend we went to the mountain house where the abuelos had a new fun activity planned which you thoroughly enjoyed.

Working it with Tere

One more thing you should know. You have developed a strong opinion about your hair.  Your favorite as of late has been a total comb back - no bangs, so we will respect your preference and work on letting them grow out.
