Animal Rescuers!

Yesterday, Mommy and I found a hummingbird in our kitchen! She must have flown in when we had the laundry room open...She was very scared, and quickly became so tired that she had to rest on the windowsill. So, Mommy very gently scooped the little bird into her hands, and tried to get her to drink some sugar water, but she fluttered her fast wings and went back up to the light.
I helped by saying "Come 'ere birdie!"
Finally, we were able to reach her. We took her outside to her favorite little tree, and she started to drink from the tiny flowers while Mommy held her. Then, she fluttered, and drank until she had enough strength to go back to her family.
I'm so happy I was able to save the little hummingbird, and hope to see her again soon near the pretty red flowers!

Potty Time!

...Well, almost...My very own potty! I was so excited about it......Until I tried it out. Something just doesn't feel right just yet...
Give me some time to think about this whole potty stuff. I'll get back to you...

Just a day in the life of a Portu-Giese

Here I am, waiting patiently to go to school - see my cute uniform? I go to school three times a week - just in the mornings, but that gives me plenty of time to run, play, and learn some Portuguese!
When I get home, though, I'm usually all played-out, and ready for a good snooze!The rest of my day is filled with plain 'ol silliness

Budding Picasso

I'm really tuning into my creativity these days. I think I'm inspired by the beautiful pictures I make at school that they display on the wall for everyone to admire.
I love to color at home, but sometimes I get a little carried away with my artistic endeavors
So today, Mommy thought maybe I could get all artsy outside...she got this crazy idea about making homemade finger paint from these things
She said she got the idea from a Mommy website...I don't know what those other mommies are doing, but....turns out the stuff Mommy made was more like...hmmm...icing?
Oh well...a true art-eest doesn't let a little thing like weirdo-paint get in her way when she wants to create! Here's my masterpiece...
Always approach a toddler holding a paintbrush with caution!

The Big 2-0

Months, that is! Friday was my 20-month old birthday - Mommy and Daddy just can't believe I'm only four months shy of my second birthday! I don't know why, I'm such a big girl; I weigh almost 23 lbs and am 30+ inches tall (Mommy knew I had a growth spurt!)
I'm having a good time at school, but I still love being home the most - where I spend my time reading my favorite books...
Running around like a Ban-shee...
Shakin' my booty (and getting mad at Mommy for taking a picture of it!)












I have to admit, though...my absolute favorite thing to do (to Mommy & Daddy's dismay) is watch my Dora the Explorer dvd - a gift from Mims!
...but playing outside is my second-favorite thing! Do you wanna come down to Brazil to see me? I'll be waiting!
