Baby B at 3 months

Little B, you know how to wear a smile! You are the happiest baby I've seen. You have smiled for 1 month straight. And even at 3 months, you sleep all day long- especially well on your tummy. You hold your neck and head so well, you sleep 6-9 hrs straight at night. You eat great and it shows! You love to have your tummy rubbed, you love your sister's super wet kisses and licks on the head. You are great at Yoga class and seem to be so relaxed as soon as we enter the door- though relaxation pose is your fav and always puts you in a deep sleep! Your legs are still as chunky as ever and your cheeks just as fun to squeeze. Our little Begoxu- how we love you!

Carolina is 2 years old!

Our little C grew up over night! Literally the night B was born, it seemed like she aged a ton. The past 6 months have flown by- she is little Miss Independant. Everything is "sola". As always, she loves to sing (with the sweetest little voice) and loves to dance (the living room table is her "stage"). She talks up a storm- sometimes in sentences, sometimes just with every word she knows thrown together. She is speaking spanish and english both, depending on the words (more spanish than english). In spanish she is "dos", english "three" :-). She can count to 10 in both languages, but skips "six"?? She knows her spanish days of the week. Everything is "aqui" or "que susto" and "cookie" seems to top it all. This girl can eat! And eats anything you put in front of her, except pieces of fruit. She aaaaadores Begoña- kisses her, lays on her and says "i hold you". She is attached to chupe (her paci) and lamb lamb. In the past few months C has moved houses, gained a sister and started a new school- and has been such a trooper!! Precious and a joy to be around and well.....all this surpasses the recent tantrums that have started (the "mios", "no's" and screams). Who would ever know from this sweet face?!!

Baby B at 2 months

Oh little Miss Smiley! You are such a sweetie pie. You literally sleep the whole day until Papi comes home, (You're missing lots of good shopping and coffee dates!) then you pretty much hang out in our arms until bedtime. Crazy enough you're sleeping 6-8hrs in a row at night too. Must be your inactivity that packed on over 2lbs this month! You weigh 12.15lbs and are 22.6 inches tall. You have just started to smile and coo and well... I could just stare at you all day long. We started Mommy and Baby yoga this month. You chill for the first part and then like to curl up with me at the end for "relaxation". This pretty much knocks you out. You took your first trip to Bilbao this month and did super on the car ride. Off now for many more adventures!

Begoña is 1 month!

Begoña Anne! You are 1 month old. I never knew I could love you so much. Your big sister, Carolina, adores you- and so do we. You have pretty much slept the whole month of August- but in this heat, who can blame you. You have grown soooo much. You are 9lbs 11oz and 21in long. You love sleeping on your belly during the day and in the swaddle at night. You cry like a little puppy dog, but luckily just a little at night. You curl your little feet and bottom up and will lay on my chest all day long. I never want this to change! Such a joy you are in our lives!
