“I love Loise’s painting!”

Loise, thank you, really, for your beautiful painting on the wall. Andrew loves your painting more than anything else in the world. He loves looking at it and touching it, and all the while he jumps up and down and looks happily at us. In the pictures below, Andrew was very upset because he is teething again and has a cold, so we were trying to calm him down walking him around, then I decided to bring him in front of the painting and his unhappiness immediately turned into a smile… it is amazing how babies can just switch like that. He started jumping with excitement while on my arms and then pushed really hard against my body to try to get off and go touch the painting. So here he is, checking out the beautiful flowers and the waive, on his own and happier.

VIDEO: boy and mama at the Restaurant

In this video I was actually trying to pose for a picture, I did not know Rolli was making a video obviously; that explains my long lasting (silly) smile, attempting to pose; but I liked the Latin atmosphere and especially Andrew’s busy and eager attitude and the faces he makes… typical of him to get so interested in things.

In questo video siamo in un ristorante ed io veramente stavo cercando di posare per una foto, non sapendo che Roland stava registrando; il che spiega il mio sorriso sciocchino e lungo.  Pero’ mi piaceva l’atmosfera latina e soprattutto l’attaggiamento impegnato e appassionato di Andrew… tipicamente suo il modo interessato di guardarsi attorno.

Third day in San Juan

We went to a party held at Kassandra’s parents beautiful house. Andrew really likes being social. Here is a beautiful picture with Kim and then one with two very sweet girls who are Kassandra’s friends. I can’t believe we don’t have any picture with Kassandra… I guess we’ll have to fix that next time we see her.

Siamo stati ad una festa a casa dei genitori di Kassandra. Ad Andrew piacciono questi eventi mondani. Ecco qui un paio di foto con Kim e due amiche della sposa; seguono un paio di foto di San Juan.
