Having fun

Abuelito bought me a doll, a soft Cabbage Patch doll with a pacifier (bobo) just like baby Jase. The first thing I did was take off the socks, then I took the pacifier out of her mouth so I could see what it tastes like....it isn't much fun holding it between my teeth (it's not a real bobo). I put the baby to rock in Jase's swing and I even give her kisses, she is so sweet.
Now we are going across the street to play with Devin, she is my age. She was super nice and let
me play with all her toys. OK, there was that baby sippy cup which is her favorite and that toy cell phone which must be another favorite. But other than that she had a million toys I could play with. My favorite was the play house with the door. I helped put the toys away when it was time to go home. Thanks for playing with me, Devin!
Sasha was waiting for me outside and I tried to walk like him on all fours, that was not easy on that concrete driveway.

Abuelito thought I should have some of my own toys so he bought me a bicycle. OK, it's a tricycle....and I need help with the petals so Dada or Abuelito push me and it is super fun. Thanks Abuelito. We go out every day now for some outdoor fun and I love it. It is a Radio Flyer and I know Jase will love it too because Abuelito says I have to share.

Elektra was starving!!

Wow, this is the best chicken I have ever had in my whole life!!! (notice the apple I'm eating in my other hand!!)

They tried to take the meat off the bone but I wouldn't let them come near my drumstick!!!

This is one delicious drumstick, abuelita can really cook good!!!

This is my fourth meal for the day, even though it looks like they didn't feed me at all!!!
And now for a few handfuls of delicious Puerto Rican style rice with olive oil and everything to top off my meal.

Here is Jase sitting in the high chair, he thinks it is cool.

And now for his very first taste of solid food, baby rice cereal.

It was not tasty, he thinks it is horrendous!!!
Absolutely disgusting stuff, but he kept eating it.

Here is Elektra trying to show Jase how it is done, eating solid food is wonderful.

Elektra is throwing one of Jase's balls while sitting on Titi Carmen's lap, Jase thinks it is so cool!!

If I am eating Abuelita is taking my picture, she loves to see me eat.

Happy girl!!!

These baby sausages are yummy.

Abuelita lets me help her in the kitchen with the pots and pans.

Here is proud Grandpa with his first born granddaughter and first born grandson.

This is the baby seat and Elektra loves to sit here and chill, listening to the music and playing with the toys.

I don't know who is having more fun Abuelita or Jase, they are laughing up a storm. He is easily entertained, he loves to laugh.

Elektra's First Visit (in over a year!)

Our first day shopping, we had to go get lots of things since this was her first visit and she didn't come with an overnight bag. We sure had fun!!!

Abuelita loves watching me eat, nothing makes her happier than to see me feed myself!!

Grapes, those are wonderful to eat, also!
I didn't need any help walking around, looking for Sasha.
On Abuelita's porch, looking for the kitty, Sasha. I spent all day talking about him!

Devin came to visit me from across the street, she brought her mother, Dawn. I'm 4 days older than Devin, I can't wait to go outside and play with her.

It is nighttime, it has been an exhausting day.....Abuelita fixed Maria's bed, a four poster bed from Puerto Rico, to accommodate me, with side railings and everything after an ingenious manipulation of the mattress. I love my bed, it's big enough for me and all my friends!!
