Today was my THIRD birthday! The day was chock-full of fun: going to Playpark with Aunt Brooke, pizza and games for dinner, and a giant cupcake birthday cake! All that, and I still get to have another party? Three is gonna be great!
Some highlights from the evening's festivities....
Opening gifts: Disney and Dora - two of my favorite things
Uncle Mark, teaching me the finer skills of skeeball
Punching Hammerheads sure is crazy fun
At least, Mommy thinks so
Perfect finale: Giant Cupcake!
**One more thing....keep an eye out, Isla and I will soon be sharing a gorgeous, new blog space! **
Earlier this month, I had the chance to take swimming lessons from Mrs. Linda - the swim coach at St. Joe High School. There was only one spot left, in the big kids' class, but I felt up to the challenge! First, we learned to blow bubbles with our face in the water, and to "be nice to the water," - to kick softly, put our arms in front of us, and reach and pull! There were times I got nervous (not a big fan of floating on my back!), but I'll get the hang of it soon. Before I knew it, we were diving for toys at the bottom of the pool! When each day was done, I was usually ready for a big snooze! Helloooo, Flipper!
We were very sad on Sunday, because we weren't able to be with our Daddy on Father's Day. We spent the weekend in the Texas Hill Country, and it really made us wish he were with us. We're waiting for Isla's important papers to be sent, so we can fly back to Brazil, and be together as a family. Hopefully, that'll be soon.
We took some pictures to send Daddy for Father's Day...
I tried to make Isla laugh...
...but, I think cousin Lindsey did a better job
Of course, I hammed it up once or twice to make Daddy smile...
...and we called him a lot, but talking on the phone just isn't the same... Miss you, Daddy.
It's been a busy month since Isla arrived - she's growing like a little weed, and is already 1 month old! I spend most of my time being silly, and sometimes downright "onery," but I'm one happy camper when I'm playing outside at Mims and Pops!
We've been trying our best to get Isla to smile for the camera
You have to be really fast!
She thinks I'm a little crazy - I'm sure she'd tell me if she could!
