I'm 5 months!

Now that I'm 5 months I can do so many things:

- eat my toes!
- drink a little from a cup
- ride "forward" on the Baby Bjorn
- play in the exersaucer and jumperoo
- talk a lot (and very loud!)
- entertain myself for a little while

My mommy and daddy are having a blast with me. I am so much fun to be around...that's when I'm not tired :)

Hilary is back...for a couple days

Hilary came back for a short visit from Alaska...we wish it would have been longer. We got to eat lunch with her and visit with chocolates afterwards. We miss you so much! Victoria loves seeing you!

Victoria's first visit to the Aquarium!

While Maria Gloria and Cesitar where in town we decided to go to the aquarium. Thank goodness for A/C (and BabyBjorn) since it was 105 degrees!!! Victoria had a blast...she was so interested in the fish. I guess she feels like home (Chris has a tank)!

Victoria wowed by the fish!!!

Park + Summer = Hot Fun!

In the past, I had gone for short walks in the park, but never to have so much fun like I did! It was so hot but mommy and daddy made sure I was ok.

Swinging with mommy! Faster, please!!!

Love the slide! Tia Gloria and Cesitar do too!
Resting a little, but just a little...
Love mami's kisses!
Can we go play?

Do you like the hat?

Now, I'm ready to go home (and take a bath)!

Visit from Ecuador!

I had 2 wonderful visitors from Ecuador...Tia Gloria and Cesitar! I had met Tia Gloria when I was 1 month old but I really wanted to meet her son. I had so much fun with them. Tia Gloria took a lot (I mean a lot!) of pictures of me (I loved it!) with her big camera. Cesitar was so sweet to me, he played with me and taught me some mroe words in Spanish. Can't wait for them to come back!
Meeting Cesitar for the first time...he is so funny!

My little friends!

In this short time I have had, I have made lots of friends! I don't have pictures with all of them, but here are some I do have. Ecuadorian friend. He came to vist me and we had a blast! Did I tell you how much he loves Power Rangers?

This is my new friend Parker, he lives in Arkansa.

This is my big cousin Sam - he is always making funny faces and making me smile.

This is Kendall, we recently "partied" together at a wedding. She is so much fun!

This is Amelia. Her mommy is Colleen - who works with my mommy. She is just 5 days older than me! Don't we look cute in pink?

These are Joe and Sohaan. Their mommies (Beth and Zarana) also work with my mommy. They are such boys!

This is Ellie (short for Elliana) - her mommy (Robyn) went to school with my mommy. We go to Baby Boot Camp together!

These are Presley and Teagan. They are sisters. Their mommy Taylor takes really good pictures - she also went to school with mommy.

Here are the twins...I have a hard time figuring them out - I always think I am seeing double! Their names are Collin and Brendan. Their parents are my godparents - Amy and Mike. AMy went to school with my mommy and they also used to work together.

This is Alex, my cousin. She always smiles really big. I like going to her house. She lets me borrow her bed for my naps. I know we are going to be really good friends.

Sand, sun and bikinis!

I love the beach! It was so relaxing. Mommy made sure I had plenty of sunblock and daddy got me a huge tent to give me shade. I want to do it again! Come on daddy, let's go!

Wearing the bikini uncle Juan Pablo and Aunt Liz gave me! Not so sure daddy was happy :)

Tired of sun bathing...time for a nap!

With my sunglasses and cool!

Mommy letting me get a little wet...I love the water!

By the end, mommy took my bathing suit off because I was wet... I loved playing with the sand. Daddy said it was the last time I would be "topless" at the beach!
