Hope Santa brings Marcus a new pair of slippers for Christmas!
Close up of the silly one.
Uh oh - someone's getting tired (and has found a travel pillow which is now apparently hers.
For God's sake woman, stop taking my picture and put me to bed! (So I can wake up at 4:30 this morning - but that's a whole different posting.

I was trying to get video this morning of Emilia saying "no" but no luck. Instead I managed to catch her making one of her signs. I was very late in starting the whole baby sign language thing mainly because I felt like we were already doing a lot of language stuff by speaking only Spanish with her, but I saw how well it was working with her friends from playgroup so I decided to try it and now I'm a believer! Emilia has about 5 signs (I'm sure if I'd started earlier she would have more by now but whatever) and she doesn't do all of them correctly but she's consistent with them and we know what they mean. The sign for "more" (we say "mas") is supposed to be fingers from both hands coming together but she does it by pointing with one finger to her open palm. It is kind of cool I must admit. (Note: I have no idea what she wanted more of when we were recording this).

Tailgating at the Esso Club.
Getting the skinny on the game from her Papa.
The end of the game - clearly the girl was done - she had eaten everything in her lunchbox and was sitting on the ground. We left right after this picture.GASP! What she looked like the last time we went to Clemson. We barely tailgated and never made it into the game - November 2007. I'm not kidding when I say my heart aches!

Taking turns with the shovel.
Emilia giving Kyrie a push in the car. I think Kyrie is questioning her driving skills!
Contemplating her first knitting project.

Fifina le regalo este jumper de blue jean a la nena cuando estuvimos en Quito ahora en julio por su cumpleanos. Recien ahora le entra - y se ve desde ya que le encanta y que le va a servir bastante porque le puede usar con mallas o con medias como lo esta usando ahora...
Admittedly not the best pictures but they'll have to do!

She was super comfy and toasty this past rainy Wednesday. Admittedly these are not the best pictures but my fashion model doesn't like to stay still for very long!
Um... so in the evenings before bed we let Emilia run around with just her diaper on or even al fresco. The other day she landed on one of her favorite places - Chola's bed (and no, go ahead and groan now, it was neither washed nor disinfected or anything and yes, I let her sit on it - oh well). I loved the fact that she was "reading" - she had the book jacket from one of her Peter Rabbit books and was reading it. A bookworm at an early age - chip off the blocks!

Checking out some piggies.
The little milkmaid in front of the faux cow they had set up so kids could pretend to milk the cow... kind of gross if you ask me.
On the hayride.
Walking through the corn maze (she decided at some point she didn't want to push the wagon anymore).
