On the Road Again!



We went down to L.A on Tuesday, June 16th for Shane's Police and Fire Olympic Games. Shane's team did well overall but got eliminated in the playoffs. Nayeli had fun watching her daddy on the ice. She giggled and screamed when she saw everyone skating. Shane is convinced she will be a hockey player I on the other hand see her figure ice skating. We shall see! We had a great time in L.A with our family and friends. We took Nayeli to the zoo on Friday. She loved looking at the people and enjoyed looking at children. She is smiling and being very talkative with people. We are so happy with her progress. She enjoyed seeing the giraffes and monkeys. There is an animal she did not like and got scared there is a picture of it on the video. We also took a picture of Nayeli when she was upset in seeing this animal. It does look kind of scary. On Saturday we decided to take her to the Getty Museum and she shocked us again with her appreciation for sculptures and art paintings. The Getty Museum is very big so we will have to go back.

Nayeli did so many new things on this trip. Nana Victoria taught Nayeli to clap with both hands with a spanish song that goes like this Tortillitas para Mama Toritillitas para Papa. Very cute! Nayeli loves it! She is sitting up on her own for longer periods. We still put pillows behind her just in case. Two weeks ago she fell back and hit her head on the carpet upstairs. I freaked out! She was ok but the nurse told me that will be one of many to come. Nayeli's top front left tooth started peeking out on Thursday. Her right top tooth came out on Saturday. She is drooling and is trying to chew on everything including my hair, ear and shoulder. I tried freezing a wash cloth that Carter's mommy suggested. Nayeli loves it, it's working!

Here is a video of our trip.

Such a lovely slideshow! Nayeli is super cute, I truly love her smile. So nice to hear that you guys are enjoying all these trips and that Nayeli is having such a good time. She is growing up so fast, it's great to see her progress. Liz, I am with you, definitely ice skating queen :0).
Big hugs from the UK.
