mateo: happy, chatty, little fellow! especially happy after a frozen yogurt!!
stella: her first time having her face painted! she wanted to look like kitty cleo and she played the part perfectly all evening, purring and all! the intent on her face is just who she is. soaking up every detail around her. she watches everyone and everything like a hawk. soaking it all in.
mateo: spending some quality time with papa this day! drawing with markers is one of his favorite activities. if you ask him what he is drawing sometimes he replies, "M." Too funny! (photo credit: andy)
stella: she and i spent the good part of this day running lots of errands and i let her pick where we would eat lunch! she picked the orange rice place! pepe delgado's! she love to play "i spy" in the restaurant. so nice to spend time with just her and i. love.
mateo: puzzles, he's quite good at them. i love to watch his little brain working as he picks up a piece, scans the puzzle and wiggles it in. i love how he balances with his hand back in the air while the other hand is wiggling the piece and how he does his work with his mouth wide open.
stella: the smile she has when she's exploring and splashing at the beach is priceless. i also loved her reflection in the water.
