Happy Birthday Mommy!!

Do you have any idea what 50 candles look like?
I do now...
My mom is pretty much the most amazing person I know.
Sergio and I even named our beautiful daughter after her because of her wonderful example.
We couldn't think of better footsteps for her to follow in.
After all, it was her fault that Sergio and I got married in the 1st place...
and her fault again that we are back in the states.
So in ode to her special day today, here are a few attributes that my mommy has that our Gringanada will have to try to live up to.
Beautiful 
Wife
Mother
Grandma
Friend
Example
Survivor
Wise
Explorer 
Serviceable
Old   Funny!
Did I say old?

There aren't enough pictures in the world to describe how wonderful my mommy is.
Happy Birthday Mom!
Here's to many more to come!!

Happy Birthday Joshie!

I have a pretty awesome brother. 
He has always been a pretty good example.
He does cool things.
and he's a pretty awesome uncle too.

Today he is turning old(er,)
Because he will always be older than me...
Even if he has never looked older than me.

Happy Birthday Josh!

4 Months

 Last week our little gringanada turned 4 months old.
I usually try to take pictures of her every 9th, but this month we were in Utah...
It worked out okay since yesterday she had her check-up.
She is now 12 lbs and 14 oz
and 25 inches long.
 That puts her in the 30th percentile for her weight...
but the 75th percentile for her height.
So she's extra tall and skinny.
She's not a real fan of pictures or videos.
She can be laughing and giggling, but if you try to take a picture she calms right down.
 But today was even harder than normal.
 At first I thought she was just tired.
Then she turned plain grumpy.
So we didn't get to take very many pictures.
It turns out she has a fever of 101.3.
Not so fun.
None the less, today we are having a sick day.
I am sure she will be back to normal in no time.

Our Latest Investment

I don't know if you have ever seen one of these before.
 They are a modern icon of our "hometown" in 
San Miguel de Tucuman, Argentina.
Basically it is a hot dog cooked in a waffle like batter.
Kind of like a corn dog, but...
without the sick, not fried, and it's a flour based batter instead of cornmeal.

I'm pretty sure in this city o586,198 people it would be almost impossible to find one that hasn't tried a "panchuque."
Theses panchuque machines line the "peatonal" or pedestrian streets.
They sell thousands a week.
I think that is why Sergio has been dreaming of investing in one ever since we left.
He has looked at every web page,
Talked to the manufactures countless times,
And we have spent our fair share of hours talking about it.

Well last week his dream came true when his brother and sister-in-law made their way to the states.
Instead of paying for shipping they agreed to bring it up for us.
We are now the proud owner of a panchuque machine.
Which I have christened,
the waffle dog machine.
These are Sergio's first waffle dogs.
They tasted just like home.
If you want to try a few, just give us a call.
Sergio has been loving trying out his new toy.

Look at her Grow!

She's been able to do this for the last several weeks,
She is also a professional at doing this...
But getting her head to do this
was quite the trick.

It turns out she just needed this.
I guess it is harder than it looks to lift your head up while your behind is in the air.
She's sure getting big!
