After a month without a bath tub.  After a month of my parents dunking me under the cold, cold shower spray can you tell I'm happy to have a bathtub?  And this isn't just a plain ole' bathtub, it's the most GINORMOUS bathtub I've ever seen.  So I'm teaching myself how to swim in it!         1 comment...

    "Mom, why did you take my shoes off?  I'm cold and the ground feels funny."         "That's better. Now I'm ready to explore."         "Come on.  Let's go into the yard!"         "Do you see this big tree?"         "Now watch me. I'm hands-free!"         "Try some grass. You'll like it."         "Okay, show's over. I'm ready to go back inside." 1 comment...

"In case you hadn't noticed, I'm pretty much all grown up now.  I drink out of a sippy cup when I feel like it, I can hang on the couch with my dad.  Yeah, I'm grown up.  Well, except I still wear diapers but sheesh, do we have to talk about everything on here???"     3 comments...

The days are flying by and in just moments you'll be ten months old and then your first year is just around the corner.  I can hardly believe it.   I've had hardly a minute to think or write about all the changes that YOU'VE seen these past weeks.   Since moving to Ecuador you've thrown up for the very first time (about 20 minutes after we landed), you've lived in two more homes than the three you had already experienced, and you've gotten your first nanny.  So far you r...

There are a lot of little moments since moving to Quito that I haven't yet written about, but I didn't want to miss this one.   On Sunday you took three steps.  I set you down holding onto the bed and you turned and took three steps before realizing you were walking without help.  Later that night you let go of the bed and took another three steps toward your dad before falling.  And today you were holding onto the fridge, let go and took four steps straight toward Aunt Kelly...

First time in a Quito park.  You loved the little acorn like nuts and attempted to put about *oh* 182 of them in your mouth.   Add new comment...

About a week ago you started doing this move all on your own.  Nobody taught you this one.     It's as if, after 9 months of lobbing your head around, whipping it back and forth to make sure you don't miss any fun and excitement, you realized for the very first time it's you who is in control of the neck and head attached to your body!  You spent three days shaking your head constantly but now we just see it every once in a while, mostly when you are playing by yourself. &nbs...
