"Pudding Painting"

Victoria's teacher sent me some pictures of the day they did "pudding painting". I would call it more like "pudding eating/pudding everywhere". So glad she took her clothes off for this fun experience! There wasn't any "artwork", which I'm glad as I think we would have ants all over the house!


The artist very into her work

No more pictures of the artist please!

Me? I promise I haven't even tried it!

New weight, new car seat!

So we went to the doctor for a follow-up and Victoria is now 19 lb 13 1/2 oz...2 1/2 oz from the 20 lb needed to ride forward, but who can wait! We did it! (She is too long anyway to ride on her old carseat) She liked it in my car but had issues when going to school with daddy...maybe she doesn't like the one in his car...who knows! Here are some pictures of this big transition! (I think we are much more excited than she is!)

Sad after her shot! (By the way, she now doesn't like the doctors office, I think she remembers her last visit when she got shots. She cried and cried, and cried...which is just the way I was when I was little...do I hear PAYBACK!)

First ride facing forward!

On the way home from school...facing forward again! (Yes, I'm sure we are much more excited than she is!)

An old memory of her riding rear-facing. (We were still in the parking lot so she os not buckled in - sorry I am too picky about car safety, and yes I turned her around before 20#...I'm I contradicting myself?)

Mi little girl...you are one

Time has flown by! I can not believe it has been over a year since you arrived, since you made life so much better for your daddy and me! You have become our life, our happiness, our everything!

Thank you for your smiles, which you share ALL THE TIME! Thank you for calling us "mama" and "papi". Thank you for being so sweet and lovable. Thank you for giving meaning to our lives. Thank you for being you!

You are talking so much - papi or puppy (not sure, maybe both!), baby/bebe, mama, dada, ball, up, oh oh, Oko/Ko (which means Okki - your puppy), ma/ma (which is mas is Spanish - for more) and many other things that I will soon learn to understand!

You are such a smiler and a flirt - people better smile at you or you will stare and smile until they do!

You love your daddy - you get so excited when you see him...and he does too when he sees you!

You love books - better than any toy I can ever give you!

You sleep so good - 2 naps (at least at home, at school maybe not all the time!) and 13-14 hours at night (Thank you for that!)

You make me want to be the best mommy in the world! I love you!
