This is such a delayed post! I am so sorry for having taken so long to write another post. My computer was a part of a natural disaster - the great Lia Hurricane.
I walked out of the room where I was uploading pictures from my camera to my computer and drinking a tall glass of refreshing water, and upon my return, I found the entire glass of water had been poured over my beautiful aluminum MacBook. The horror!
After looking at Lia and realizing that she had no idea of what she just did and that it was even BAD, I knew that it was completely my fault as it was something that could have been avoided by my good judgment of not putting a huge glass of water right next to my computer and my thirsty toddler. Hello!? Don't they teach you that in Parenting 101??
But alas, I got my computer back from the Heavenly Apple store who so graciously fixed the computer FOR FREE! Who-da thought?? I am happy to be back in the arms of my beautiful aluminum MacBook, and with that...
Since my posts are so behind, it will be a lot of catching up for me since it is pretty obvious (to me) that Siena was tiny in the picture below. I think she was... hm... five weeks old, but in real life she is nine weeks old. I know, to most people four weeks doesn't mean much. But in the life of a newborn! That's a lot of time!
Here is the Siena and Lia 1 Month Photo:
Lia doesn't like to cooperate (what toddler likes sitting still??), so I have to make her "kiss baby!" every time I try to take this photo. It's pretty hilarious.

My brother and sister-in-law have two kids - Anisa, who is three months older than Lia, and Pablo, who is 3.5 months older than Siena. It is such a blast to have our kids so close together - and I can't wait to see these four grow up to be the best of friends.
Here is the handsome Pablo giving us some smiles :)
Here is the gorgeous Anisa... and below are Anisa and Titi Susie!
Trying to get a picture of a mom and toddler is QUITE the task, lemme tell you :)
Lia loves the slide at Tio and Titi's house... so much so that we had to hide the slide in the other room because Josh was getting too much of a workout sliding those girls up and down!
It has really been so great having kids near the same time as Josh and Susie. It is a great benefit and gift of solidarity to be in the same phase in life with my brother and his beautiful family. Susie and I could chat and talk and laugh all day long about being the mothers of two - we share our struggles, we share our doubts... but most of all, we share with each other our love and great affection for our children and each other's children. I appreciate their comfort, their understanding, their immense love and generosity so much. I don't know where I would be without them.
