So, I just got some pictures from Stu – I’m dependant on him and his cell phone until we get home, I’m still technology challenged – and wanted to share. Above is Teagan on Christmas Eve (Noche Buena) at my mom’s cousin’s house. Where we felt the earthquake. She’s wearing a dress my mom made from a pillow case that she was given as a wedding present. I’m not sure any one noticed, as Teagan really didn’t “show off” during the party, she was a bit shy, and soon fell asleep in her stroller. We had some of the best Lechon I’ve ever had.
This is at a Christmas party at my mom’s cousin Vangie and her husband Benny’s house. There was a toddler a few months older than Teagan there. She was much more social and waved to everyone and said “hi” and was almst her normal social self. It was weird being at a Christmas party on a back deck. I could get used to it. And there was lechon! Again!
Last night we went and had dinner in Old San Juan. Churrasco was fantastic, and Teagan ate everything… She was such a good girl for as late as it was. We went walking through the streets to see the lights and decorations… This park had some nifty “falling” lights that you can’t get the full effect of in the picture… it was still pretty. They had a HUGE tree with these big poinsettia flowers and holly in lights on the bottom. Very Pretty
This is the entrance of the walk by the fortress. There were these amazing lights, and booths with food and crafts. They had a drum group and a guitar group on two separate places… It was almost magical walking through.
Today, was a slow day.. we had breakfast, napped (well, just Teagan) and then went out with more family (Nancy and Fonzi, from the other side of mom’s family). We got back after lunch at Metropolis and went up to mom and dad’s room. She had a blast burning off some energy. We gave her a plastic water bottle with a little water in it and she was in heaven. I filled up again and gave it to her. She said “Thank you, mama.” Unprompted. Her first real sentence :)
