Boy oh boy, a lot has happened since I last posted. Yikes.
At the end of August and beginning of September, we all went to Spain for a two week vacation. To be brief, it didn’t turn out quite as we expected. We first went to Ibiza for what we thought was going to be a lazy beach vacation. Not exactly. First, Carlos and I discovered that we should have done more homework before we booked a package vacation. Second, we all got sick. First Carlos and Anna got a 24-hour stomach virus and spent a day and some vomiting up a storm. Then I got sick and spent the rest of the vacation in bed. I don’t recall ever being so sick. Poor Carlos – I don’t think it was much of a vacation for him to look after a vomiting, pregnant wife. After a miserable week at the beach, we went to Barcelona to see the abuelos. I was still in an invalid-like state until our last day there, but I think Anna and Carlos had fun. The good news is that the Garbanzo survived this nightmare well. And, as of tomorrow afternoon, we’ll know whether we’re expecting a Garbanzo or a Garbanza – stay tuned!
After our less than ideal vacation, we made it back to London. Things have been quite busy. We’ve had a number of house-guests visiting which has been a ton of fun. We always love visitors (hint hint).
Anna has been talking a ton lately. Suddenly, she’s started forming sentences like “Let’s go home.” And “See you later.” It is really wild to hear her language development. We’re working on the colors right now. She always gravitates toward her orange crayon, but also likes “peeple” (aka purple). Anna’s hair has also started to really grow and get a bit thicker, finally. So, I’ve posted a recent picture of her with a new hairdo.
Stay tuned for Garbanzo(a) news tomorrow!
