My little mischievous

Tobias is so mischievous. He loves to play with the dog food and if that involves spilling all her water, he won't hesitate a bit. The funniest think is he knows he is doing something wrong, so first he checks if somebody is around and then smiles like this:

Colombia update and Winter Storm in Colorado!!


Don't judge by his face, he really loved the snow!


I hope you all enjoyed the pictures that I posted from our trip to Colombia. Even though it was vacation, I didn't have much free time to write something along with the pictures. But we had a great time!. We all loved to be surrounded by family and the kids had a blast with abuelitos and Anita and Juanca. Tobias met his grandpa (abuelito Carlos) for the first time and also great-grand parents (Ceci, Mario y la nona Hilda).


As you can tell from Tobias Birthday party pictures, it was a great time. We had lots of family and friend celebrating an amazing year full of blessings, miracles and the great joy of having our little O-baby (now O-toddler) growing big and strong every day.


John and Nico had to stay home because of school, so that was the only part of the whole trip that I didn't like, but at the same time I really appreciate the generosity of my wonderful husband to let Tobias spent his first birthday with his Colombian family!.

Ohhh..and the other part I didn't enjoy was the awful time at the Denver airport waiting while AA tried to fix our plane...and 6 hours later they finally decided the airplane was not safe to fly and cancelled the flight. Let me tell you, being in an airport with two little ones without knowing when and how or even if you will be able to go was no fun at all.
But we finally made it to Colombia and a couple weeks ago we returned back home on time to see the first snow (actually winter storm) of the season. And here are a couple of pics.

My first...

I realized it has been more than two months since I last posted. And so much has happened in those two months!. It was full of firsts!!.



First road trip: thirteen hours in a car with a 8 month old, a 2 year old and a pre-teen is not what I would call "ideal", but it was all worth it and Tobias got to see all his family (from daddy's side) and had a lot of fun playing outside in the nice weather.

Here with grandma Paulette






Having a lot of fun with big brother Nico






With Daddy at grandpa Mark and grandma Sally's place



First time at the pool. And he loved it!





First time at the farm: He was fascinated by the chickens and the goats!



First 4th of July!






First time to see his "Abuelita": My mom came to visit, and we all enjoyed her company very much! My mom hadn't met Tobias before, so this visit was extra special.


With "Abuelita Martha" on the highest road on the U.S. (I think the altitud is about 11,000 feet)

Walking around downtown



Ready for one of the daily walks with Abuelita




First time playing the piano!






First tooth!



Believe me is there!!. I'll try to take another picture when the tooth is fully out, though






On top of that he just started crawling all over the place yesterday! and he has been cruising around furniture for about two weeks now. He is almost walking and can do stand-ups for about 5sec all by himself.








We are so proud of you, Tobias!!
