Yup, good times are rolling allright! These last two weeks have been blissful, quiet, fun, blessed... You name it. Just what I needed after such a bad start of the year... Summer days are coming, and the days are warmer and cozy. Much better for me, I look forward to many good things!!!!

Ash doesn't stay behind when it comes to show off while looking pretty. Here she is posing, as usual, ready for action. Yup, she's just like me... Cute... All that, and smarts too!

Mommy changed the tree. Well, about time! The easter eggs dropped off, and rubber duckies all dressed up ready for summer action appeared! We have pirate duckies (male and female), luau duckies, scuba duckies, beach duckies... And to make sure they are all playing safe, we have heroe duckies! My, those are really cute! (But not as Ash or me, of course).

This is one of my favorite dresses, white and blue. I love this dress. Everyone compliments me on it. It brings out the blue in my eyes... I know... Wow, and it also goes with my face mask! Talk about accesorizing!

Well, breathing is an exhausting task for me... I can't believe mommy would actually hint at me napping all the time. That is not true. I only nap once or twice a day... OMG! Where are the producers? Take this picture outta here!

See, this is more like it. Yup, I LOVE the Wonder Pets. I think there should be a whole TV station dedicated to them... and a musical in Broadway... Yup. And a whole big store of stuff about them. Ming Ming, I LOVE YOU!!!!! Linny, YOU ROCK! And took, GIMME A HUG!!!

Here's Daddy reading to me at night. Granny Edna sent me some books that I'm putting to good use. I love books! Especially when Mommy and Daddy do the puppet shows that compliment them. They make me smile a lot!

And here is a close-up so people think I'm insane like DrEvil or something... Mom!!!! Sheez, where are the producers when you need them?!

Well, anyway... What is new? Now I have a new nurse for the second shift, three days of the week, Mon-Wed. She is very very tall! And very very gentle. She seems to be a good choice for the evenings. She reads to me, plays with the flash cards... You know, low impact afternoons... much needed as my dear NurseMisheila drains me with so many activities during the day! Mommy and Daddy likes that, but geesh, give me a break! Exercises, cards, switch toys, more exercises, treatment, more cards... Learning, learning, learning... Can't they see I'm still a baby? Come on! For Thu and Fri we are still on trial with another nurse. We'll see how that turns out. She seems to be nice too. And after all that is settled, then the weekends will be assessed.

Nothing else of note... Pat passed by, Ellen passed by, Evelyn passed by... All are the therapists. Most were sick earlier... So I'm glad summer is here. To shake off those bad bugs!!!

I thank God for the simple, happy days. I need to gather my strength so I accomplish much more! Little by little... The teamwork around me is really working. I keep praying for those kids that have been sick, and those who have gone through operations to make their lives better. And I pray that God grants us kids and our parents plenty of courage and strength to keep on battling as we do every day... Amen.

Here's a small scrapbook about our Mother's day. Enjoy!

Although Mommy woke up a bit late (5pm) we managed to surprise her with good food and being all dressed up. Yup, she had to dress up too. I love these small gatherings! Catch a glimpse of my red shoes!

Here I am with Mommy. Yup, I am getting a big too big for her to hold me for long... Nevertheless it always feels so good when someone hugs or holds you! I get nervous when I'm not in the safety of my stroller or in my crib, but I know Mommy and Daddy hold me tight!

Oh, of course Daddy had to be silly! The day would not be complete without him making me smile. It is always fun to grab his nose (hard to miss!).

Here I am, being stalked by a crazy pirate puppet... Sheesh!!! He is always hanging around, all the time. Yup, that is the embodiment of my Godfather, Sti!

Am I lovely or what? I look good in this dress. I selected it from the bunch, I wanted to be pretty to surprise Mommy. She loved how I looked... Divalicious!

Here's Mommy and Daddy and even Ash. We all made sure that she would smile. We have many happy moments.

And here we are, the three of us... I love my family. We are always together, and we make things work. It shows. :)

Now,to a small recap on everything that happened since my last post! Well, last week was very slow... Mommy was focused on her programming course as she had a final project due on Friday, and so Daddy was taking care of me for most of the time. I love when he does. He's so silly! He always makes me smile. This weekend was Mother's day, so we secretly planned a nice meal of Mofongo for Mommy. We all dressed up, prepared the living room for the special occasion, and pigged out with the food! I may have only smelled it, but at least I tasted a bit of mango ice cream that Mommy put in my lips. Yummy!

Timing was not so right, and the microwave oven collapse under the stress... rest in peace... Daddy had to get a new one today, hope it arrives soon... Something always happens!

Besides all that, this week we will have some visitors. Hope that the team gets back into action!

I thank God for giving me such a good Mommy. I also give thanks for my grannies and my great great granny... I know they all love me so, and are always praying for me. I wish I could see them and give them a big hug... I know that we all have to be patient, and deal with things day by day. I keep hope that soon we will be able to go back to the island, where friends and family surrounds us. Being so far is almost like being exiled... At least love has no boundaries. I miss you Millie, Gladys and Edna! Hugs and good wishes to you all! May God help you, protect you and give you the strength to wait for my return. May God keep on blessing my life with so much love and caring. Amen.

PS Hey, Godfather! Mommy took a pic of me and the small vodu doll that represents you! Did you found yourself in the scrapbooks? :) I don't forget the people I love. Kissy kissy to you too. Hugssss!!!
