Gotta Have It

Though Valentina really enjoyed the loudness and excitement of the crowd and game, she was enthralled with Lolo's popcorn box.
She tried to read the box.  We were laughing because the ingredients actually said: Popcorn, edible vegetable oil, and salt.  "Edible" vegetable oil....What?
Yum, yum, yum...she went nuts when she saw me eating it, making it look so easy.
Some day big girl, you will have enough teeth and a hearty stomach with which to enjoy these tasty treats, and you too, like me, will want to know immediately where the nearest snack bar is!

L A Galaxy Futbol

David, Daniel, Flavio, Lolo, Salvatore, Valentina and I all went to see the L A Galaxy soccer game as they challenged, and lost to, the N Y Redbulls on Friday night. I love live sporting events, and the yummy food that they sell, and a good time was had by all!

That's David Beckham in the middle.

4 Months Old

Valentina turned 4 months on Sept. 18th. 
Here are her stats:
Weight:  13 lbs. 11 oz.  (50%) *our scale says 14 lbs.
Height:  25 in.  (75%)
Head Circumference: 42.5 cm (80%)
Her doctor said that she is so healthy and right on target with her milestones.  Valentina showed off a bit by rolling and rolling and her doctor was very impressed that she is so strong and can lead with her head now when you pull her arms up to put her into a sitting position from laying down.  She barely cried for these immunizations, but then was cranky and was off of her sleep schedule for a few days after.  She also showed off for her doctor that she can laugh and laugh and laugh and it had everyone in the doctor's office laughing also!

Uncle Brian's Request

My awesome brother called tonight to tell me that he loved the video of Salvatore making Valentina laugh.  He said I should post more.  Gladly!

Music to my Ears

Salvatore was pretending to eat donuts from the 99 cents store and Valentina was cracking up at him!  He then kept doing it and she kept laughing!  Music to my ears!

Pretty Curls

Her hair is not as curly as it was when she was first born, but after a bath, they are easy to see.  I wish you could smell her soft hair and is too much!

Tummy Time

Valentina, fresh from her nightly bath, enjoying some tummy time.
She reminds me of a little turtle!
Big brother, just a few weeks older than Valentina here, enjoying tummy time!
Funny how he barely had any hair and she has so much!

Backyard Sillies

She's rolling

Back to front...on the floor...on her changing table (no, she has not fallen off), and even in her bed!  I am up constantly throughout the night to check on her and turn her back over.
