February has been a month of "firsts" in little AV's life.

Two weeks ago she (finally) got her first tooth. It came with a few sleepless nights and the classic new parent trip to the 24-hour pharmacy at 1:00am because we had the dropper for one medicine but no meds, and another medicine with no dropper. I'm sure the Farmacia Guadalajara loved my wacky ponytail, pj's and boots. Highlight of their lives and mine.

Yesterday really took the cake on the "firsts," though. Here they are in chronological order from 5:00pm-8:00pm.

1. First ponytail. Big deal in little girl world. Definitely won't be the last because I think her cuteness factor just went through the roof.
2. First steps. She's been walking around with one parent finger and cruising for a few weeks, but today she decided that she could do it all on her own. We might have to have a little chat about running, since she seems to only have one speed- fast. I give credit to a little visit from her friend Cedric who is 11 days older than her and walks all over the place. Who says jealousy isn't a great motivator?
3. First serious crash. Cheek, tv stand. You can imagine. AV is rocking a killer bruise now right across her left cheek. It makes her all dangerous and intimidating. If only it weren't for the pink ruffle-butt pants or flower pj's, she'd be super mafiosa.

Big day! Pictures to come, eventually, once I have a computer again...whenever that will be...

Long Time Gone

I know it's been a month and a half since I've blogged.

I won't make apologies, if you're looking for one.

I will tell you this. My computer will at some point be fixed. I believe this statement to be true. The only problem is that I don't know when that when will arrive.

But, let's just say the computer whiz, though I'm getting close to demoting him to computer "I kind of get how this technology stuff works," who is "fixing" it has been saying "this week" for about a month.

Soon. I promise.
