Eating skills

Even though eating is definitely not among Ximena’s favorite things to do, she is starting to experiment new flavors and textures that hopefully some day will make her more interested in this topic. She is now sitting at the table with us and training in how to drink from a cup.

Ximena's hobby

Ximena has a lot of hobbies, but there is one that has been easier to catch in pictures. We all know that babies sleep a lot, but I’m starting to think that she is particularly good at it. I have not heard of many babies who, at three months of age, sleep in with their parents till 9:30am (on weekends of course). Now that she is older and more active, she is not doing it very often any more, but still, the ease with which she makes her self go to sleep at nap time or at night still surprises me.
During Ximena’s first three months, when my mother was here, she said she didn’t hear her cry once at night. When she was hungry, she would start moving and making some noises, but as soon as she started eating, she would fall back asleep and finish her bottle without even opening her eyes.

It doesn't get better than this!

On Saturday, we went to Catherine and Charline's to spend the day. As usual we had a great time, even though Ximena tends to act out a little bit when we are at their place. We went to the pool, played with Natalia's toys and even got new toys from both aunts. She got a soft giraffe that she loves to hug and kiss and her own personal remote/cellphone that of course has helped free up some of the household appliances.
But the best of all was... to find out that we are having a new addition to the family. Catherine and Luis are expecting and we were there when they found out so it was a super exciting weekend.

Daddy can't get enough of her!!!

A not-so-great day in school

Ximena has been going to school for a couple of hours a day for the last two weeks and we think she is starting to get used to it. The ladies who work there are very nice and experienced so we know she is in good hands.
I was asked the other day to give my email address so they could send me some pictures they took of Ximena in class. I was very excited about it and finally got them a few days ago.
I wonder...
