Goat Whisperer

Today we went to This is the Place Heritage Park with the C.A.R. (Children of the American Revolution).  Olivia loved the animal petting area, in fact she had a thing with the goats.  She would talk to them and they would follow her around.  She now tells me that she wants to be a goat girl and take care of goats.

Everyone in the Montero house has been very sick for the past few weeks.  Hopefully we're out of this awful virus and can continue with normal life.

Favorite Books

Ed came home today after a very short work trip, this time only a week.  Typically he is gone for three weeks.  Right now Olivia and Lucy are enjoying their favorite books, "How do Dinosaurs..."  Lucy especially loves these books.  I get the pleasure of pointing out pictures often, but Ed gets to actually read these Spanish stories.

18 Months

Lucy trying on Olivia's tap shoes.  She loves to put on her sisters shoes.

Lucy is now 18 months!  She still loves dogs but also REALLY loves princesses, Dora, dinosaurs (we read the 'How do Dinosaur..." books daily), dancing, her big sister and daddy.  Lucy can be very silly at times.  When she gets giggly is usually means she is playing with Olivia.  She talks a lot and is putting simple two words together.  Things like cat food.

She is growing well.  At her 18 month well child doctor appointment her stats are:

Length: 31.25 inches  50%
Weight: 19 lbs 15 oz 3%  (Yep that means that she is still rear-facing in the car)
Head: 45 cm 10%

Family Handshake

Two years ago we began a 'Family Handshake' when Olivia was potty-training.  It was something fun for her to do after she successfully used the toilet.  There was three parts to the handshake, one for each member of the family.  The last part, take the tip of your thumb and kind of kiss it, was Olivia's contribution. Makes complete sense since Olivia is a thumb-sucker, something we are currently working on.  In the future, Lucy will add something to our family handshake.
