August 29th...

It will forever be one of the MOST important dates for us. Nohli's Birthday. 
I can't believe we have shared 365 days with HER. 
To celebrate her FIRST B-Day we headed up north to her Grandparent's house. 
We packed the car. Grandma Clara and her cousin Noelya came with us. We actually ran out of gas on the way there, just a few miles from our destination. 
Papa thought we could make it, but not QUITE. A very nice lady got us some gas, and we made it there (a few minutes later than expected). 
There was lots of work to do to get ready for the PARTY. The weather said it would rain, but we remained positive. 
We cleaned the pool, made gift bags, picked out balloons, Grandma made her famous Dominican style cake, we even made a huge fake cake complete with her favorite animal: THE DUCK!

Grandma Clara brought her dress from DR. They both looked Beautiful

The Day before her B-Day, we enjoyed a great beach day at Pirates Cove.
Here's Nohli playing with her shadow.

Nohli at the front door, waiting for guests to arrive.

Nohli isn't scared to the waves at the beach anymore. 
She walks right in, and the NH water ain't warm!

Clara & Mama worked hard baking, and decorating the cake

Mama cafefully frosts the "fake cake". She is an artist with frosting. HA

Nohli loved her balloons. Here she play with them the day after the party.

Even with the rain, it was a great birthday party. Thank you to every one who helped make it possible. Thanks to everyone who made the trip from NY. Nohli had a great time.

Summer Slipping AWAY

1 YEAR Birthday coming up QUICK
AUGUST 29th (Michael Jackson's BDAY as well)

Nohli loves flower. Roses and Daisy's are her favorites

Nohli waiting for mom on the chess board

Nohli got a BIG appetite.  She like to eat paper, leather, plastic, shoes, keys, wood, some rocks, and see eats lot of fruit too

Attack of the PASTA

It hasn't been a REAL hot summer.  Thank GOD, we don't have AC.  
Sometimes on hot days, Nohli like to play in the sprinkler in the back yard.

Another 1 of Nohli's favorite places is the frig. She just cools out, and chills.
She also tries to eat things.
And sometime she puts things in there too. We find them weeks later.

We finally went to target and got her a kiddy pool.  This was her 1st time in it.
We threw some rose pedals in.

Nohli and Mia dance in the kitchen.  
Nohli loves music. 
Her favorite songs are probably TV commercial jiggles. Baskin Robbins ICE CREAM & CAKE and Optium CABLE top the list

She loves her duckie's too.
