She is Back and Better than Ever!!

After a month long hiatus, the traveling Bambina has made it back to her home in Virginia and is up to more tricks. Check out this video of her rolling to her side. At three months and three weeks, it is amazing to see how much has changed in the last month.

Getting Stronger

As the little tortuga grows, she is getting stronger and becoming more alert. To help with her Torticollis (or what I like to call a stiff neck) she has to do extra tummy time. Check out the video of her practicing her skills.

Wish the little one luck as we go in for the two month shots this week. Mommy is the one that is going to feel the pain!

Gabriella’s First Rally and Halloween

There were many characters at The Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear, but they did not faze our little girl. She was excited to be in the thick of it. How often do six-week-olds get to listen to two comedians discuss the state of our Nation’s politics and hear Yusuf Islam?

The entertainment was not only on stage, there was plenty to see just standing in the crowd. Gabriella’s favorite was the VW Bug with the politicians driving us towards our future. She is an activist at heart!!

The next day, we went down to watch the Marine Corp Marathon. Gabriella sported her monkey costume. Then that night we went trick or treating. What a weekend!

Gabriella's First Words

I know Gabriella is only 3.5 weeks old be she already spoke her first words. Ana thinks she was just making noises and not actually speaking, but I took a video of it as proof that she learned how to talk. I knew she was smart, but I didn't actually know she was this smart.

Three Weeks and Almost Three Pounds

Our little girl is growing so fast. She celebrated her “three week birthday” yesterday. We went to the Fairfax Fall Festival to celebrate and apart from a little issue with getting her food in time, she was great.

Many thought that we would have a big child at birth, but Gabriella surprised us all by only weighing 7 lbs. However like her mother and father, she does not shy away from a good meal. In three weeks she has almost gained three pounds. That’s right she is almost 10lbs now. Todd says she gained it all in her face. You be the judge.

What about the Grandparents?

All this talk of Gabriella and we forgot to mention the Grandparents. Abuelita Constanza, Nana Carol and Papa Tom were there for the birth and the week that followed. Abuelo Rick will be here soon.

Todd and I would like to thank all the Grandparents for their help and love. Here are a few pictures of them with the little one.
