We're Back!

Sorry everyone! I'm not very good at writing in my journal either! Instead of worrying about whether I have included everything from the past few months or not, I'll just give you a brief summary of how things are now, so that I don't feel too overwhelmed. Let's see... we've been home from Utah now for a couple of weeks. We had a great time during our Christmas vacation. It was wonderful to be with family, and it's also wonderful to be home. It's interesting how, if you live in too many places in your life, you feel that you can never be happy in one place... a piece of your heart is everywhere you've been! At the same time, I could say that my capacity to love is greater, and my love is shared with people in many different places. Gosh, I guess I wax sentimental when I've been away from the blog too long!

Baby Lulu is the most wonderful little girl ever! She has brought so much joy into our home. It's difficult for me to ever be away from her. Her new things are rolling from wall to wall, sitting up, and curling just the tip of her little tongue. She also makes a funny hissing sound and likes to pull her socks off her feet. When she's tired she loves to hug and kiss her baby dolls. She just went to the pediatrician on Monday for her six month check up. She weighs 15 lbs and 11 oz and is 27.5 inches long, which places her in the 50th percentile for weight and the...wait till you hear this...97TH PERCENTILE for length! Yes, with short parents! I don't get it, honestly. She also started eating solids about 5 weeks ago, and seems to love everything except for peaches and squash, but I'm still working on that. She also loves any of the secret food that Diego feeds her when I'm not looking, be it a quick taste of a green olive or a piece of ham (which I don't condone btw but he's really quick!) Well, I think I was general enough! I am going to try to be better with the updates! I hope everyone is well! Here are some pics from this weekend!

I've Been Tagged!!!

Okay, Alison just tagged me! Here are the rules: Write 7 random things about yourself.Tag 7 people at the end of your post. Pass on the tag. This is kind of hard, but I'll try to be brief.
1. I know how to juggle. I learned in junior high and just kept doing it! One of my many hidden talents.
2. I really hate to talk on the phone. Those of you who have spoken to me on the phone before should feel blessed, because I really hate it! I don't know why, I just do... except when talking to my mom!
3. One of my favorite childhood memories is dumpster diving for coupons with my mom and some siblings. You'll have to ask one of them for the details.
4. The single most embarassing thing that has ever happened to me was in college. There was a huge group of people in our apartment and we were watching general conference together. I stood up to go get something, and both of my legs had fallen asleep! I dropped like a sack of potatoes! I tried to get up again, and again I fell! It happened 3 times! Humiliated!!
5. I always wanted to be an artist.
6. To follow Alison's lead on this one, I HATE to dance! Let's do anything but dance!! Please!
7. Here's something that will be new info for my family... the craziest thing I ever did was go skinny dipping in the Meditteranean!! Ask Kerri for the details on that one!
Okay, so I tag... JooLin, Jesus, hey I don't know enough people with blogs! I guess Kerri, Amy, Mom, Diego, and Cisco. If you don't have blogs put it on Facebook!

My Conclusion

Well, I have come to the conclusion that Lucia is a girl after my own heart -- we both equally despise dresses! I put this one on her this morning for church, and it only lasted about 15 minutes. I'm not sure if it was the dress or something else, but she seemed happier when it was off!

Happy Baby

What a Weekend!

First of all, it's incredible how much Lucia has grown! She smiles all the time now, and she makes these cute cooing sounds. And just when we thought she couldn't get any cuter!!! Also, this weekend we had the opportunity to have Stake Conference with some apostles! On Saturday, Diego was invited to a special Q & A meeting with Elder Bednar, Elder Nelson, and President Uchdorf (lucky!) He said it was awesome. Today, Elder Bednar spoke at our Stake Conference, and we got to sit on the front row since I was translating. We felt the spirit so strongly, and we know that it was truly a unique experience. Lucia slept through the whole thing (or maybe she was listening with her eyes closed!) She also got to wear a new dress today (as modeled above :))
