Know what would have been great to pack in the 5 suitcases we brought with us. In addition to all the diapers, wipes, disposable bibs, socks, undershirts (not nearly enough), sweaters, double strollers, bottles, brushes, soaps, and toys.

The USB cable for my camera.


If I feel motivated enough to pay the ridiculous prices here for one, there may be pics before August. If not, know that we're having a great time, missing Papa and Chola something terrible as well as all our friends and my girl just rode her first horse (solo) on the family farm like it was her j.o.b.

(On the positive side, I did remember the charger, because I thought I'd forgotten both. So there's that at least...)

ballerina girl

Saturday was Emilia’s big ballet recital at the Knight Theater uptown. As usual, she didn’t disappoint with her non-dancing-ness.  Afterwards, I asked her if she enjoyed ballet and wanted to do it again.  I worried that maybe I was pushing her to do something she really wasn’t that interested in, but she insisted that she loves it and loves dancing.  She just didn’t want to dance in front of a lot of people.  So we’ll continue with dance in the fall and see how it goes.  Below is the footage from the recital – a little jumpy as someone (who shall remain nameless) got a little excited and emotional seeing her baby stand like a statue on a stage. (Also, still figuring out the new lens).  The music is the first song they danced to (there were two pieces – one ballet and one tap).

Some still shots…

maisie (kinda like that you can see all the mamarazzis in the mirror).





sweet baby Liza during her performance.




typical – maisie and liza unhappy (they were headed out to disney and just wanted to get out of there), emi in tears and ky all smiles.




post-recital we walked down to Amelie’s french bakery for a chocolate croissant for our best ballerina.


Good job Puchis – Papa and Mama are so proud of you!
