Simon’s Words

Monday, February 2nd, 2009

I was keeping a list of all the words that Simon says, up through the beginning of January. I had to stop because he began picking up words so rapidly that the list would get out of control.

People:
Anna Azin Caco (Carlos)
Dada Edna Gapa (Grandpa Jack)
Jazz Mom-mom Nadia
Ninon (Simon) Papa Sammy
Tata (Abuelo Simón) Yayo (Sergio)
Numbers:
uno dos tres
five seis ocho
nine diez
Other Stuff:
abajo agua alla
araña aqui arbol
ariba ai-ai-ai azul
blanco brisa bye
cafe cama casa
cheese choo-choo coco (small injury)
Elmo Enchie galleta
garage gata girafa
gracias hi ketchup
leche luz mas
moto (motorcycle/bicycle) mucho no
otro pan papas
parque pato pes
pie puente puerta
pulpo rojo salsa
si sienta tienda
uh-oh up-up verde
wow wow-wow (dog) yay
yeah

Since then, his words have probably doubled, including a bunch more names (Jack, Carol, Maria, kids from school). He also started playing copycat, imitating new words even if he doesn’t know what they mean. I wanted to keep the list just of words where he knew the meanings.

Simon turns 2

Sunday, December 21st, 2008

Happy Birthday Simon!

Here we’re admiring the cake, getting ready to blow out the candle and start making a mess.

Blowing out candles can be a lot of work.

And now we can get to the eating. Another blue face, but nowhere near as big a mess as last year.

After the mess is cleaned up, time for prizes.

Don’t bother me, playing.

Anna was sad the she couldn’t have any cake.

Anna gets Peas

Friday, December 12th, 2008

Anna got to try her first pea-mush. Here they go in:

And they come out. In spite of the way it looks she’s less messy than Simon was.

Simon’s now had much more practice eating, and he’s getting better at it all the time.

This is his first milkshake, and the sugar rush that comes with it.

A Spider and a Ladybug

Friday, October 31st, 2008

We decided to dress up as a spider and a ladybug for Halloween. Here’s the scary spider costume.

The ladybug costume isn’t quite as scary.

And here’s the ladybug in her natural habitat.

We figured out how to get the candy. Just go up to a door, ring the doorbell (repeatedly) and say “treet treet”

We’ve been busy

Monday, September 22nd, 2008

Between the colic and the sick kids, we’ve been pretty busy lately. Luckily, all of that is going away, and things are getting back to normal. Here’s a few recent shots of what we’ve been up to.

A couple more photos

Anna having a little nap with Mommy.


Simon’s been keeping busy with his grandparents, the hose is his new favorite toy.

Water Baby

Saturday, June 14th, 2008

These pictures are from a month or so ago, dad’s just been lazy about scanning and posting them up. The photographer came by my swim class and took some pretty pictures. Guess who loves to smile underwater?

Swimming lessons

Monday, March 24th, 2008

Since I like the water so much, they decided to let me start swimming lessons. There’s a lot of other kids there, but they’re not as excited about splashing as I am. They even let me dive totally in the water!

Happy Easter

Sunday, March 23rd, 2008

We went over for Easter at Abuelo and Abuela’s house today, and look what I found. Once you get them open, there’s lots of yummies in there. I didn’t really like the peeps, but all the rest was good.

Mama helped me collect all the eggs into my basket.

I also got to play with Enchie for a while. She lets me pet her and she runs around so I can chase her.
