New phases, new challenges.

Ximena is now crawling and starting to pull up! It is very exciting to see her learn new things every day, but with that comes the not-so-small challenge of keeping her safe. She wants to touch and see it all! Mainly those things that we want her to be away from. We have gotten quite creative in the process, and our house looks messier every day, but nothing is more important than making sure she is safe and happy.

Thank you Sharn!

I'm loving my new bib!

First crawling attempt sighting

We recevied this picture from someone who requested to be kept annonimous. This picture is still in the lab and we are expecting confirmation of its legitimacy.

Party time

This past weekend, we went to Atlanta and visited Ximena’s friend Sebastian who just turned two. It was her first birthday party so we were very excited. I’m sure she had a lot of fun, but she probably thought it was just a particularly loud school day.
It was also her first time spending the night away from home, and I must say, we all did great!
I'm sure our next trip will go even smoother.


Dinner is served

Ximena is spending more and more time in her eating chair. We all know she is not a big fan of eating, but this way she can join the family at the dinner table and see all of the action, even when she is not having a meal. She has already tried several fruits and vegetables that she likes, so hopefully she’ll learn to love food as much as we do!

Getting more vertical

Even though Ximena has always loved to stand, I don’t think she could see things, a couple of months ago, the way she does now. It’s apparent that she is amazed by her surroundings and she can’t wait to explore every inch of our house. We hope to be able to be proactive, as opposed to making the house safer only after having some sort of an accident. We’ve made a few trips to the baby store and gotten some things, but there is still a lot of work to be done. Having the advise of friends whose babies are older than Ximena has been key in this new phase.
