IMG_8704

This Easter I wanted to do something special with Amanda as last year she was only 8 months old and we did nothing Easter related…she still doesn’t know what’s going on but she does enjoy much more activities.  Actually, last Easter I was sad I didn’t do any Easter stuff as I feared she wouldn’t …

PARTY GIRL…AND SMA UPDATES

Ready to go shopping!

Over the last few days Amanda has attended two birthday parties.  She gets invited to lots and lots of birthday parties and as much as I would love to take her everywhere we still need to be cautious with public places and sick people around her, and we also need to think about how accessible …

SURPRISE FOR AMANDA AND FAMILY BBQ

Still in my PJs Saturday morning.

Last Saturday I took Amanda to visit a toyshop.  This is the first time she goes to one and everything brought a smile to her face and mine!  My hopes were that she would “tell” me what she wanted me to get her, but I think she is too young for that or to understand …

CARNIVALS

Present for Maeto...boys clothes=BORING!

For Carnivals we stayed home with Amanda as it is actually a perfect time to take her out because the city is pretty much deserted.  I remember this time last year Amanda had just gotten out of the Hospital from Aspiration Pneumonia and we didn’t even have her special medical stroller or her van which …

Picnic

New shades feel weird!

Last Monday, which was a Holiday, we took Amanda to Parque Omar for her first picnic.  Our plans were to put her on the floor and do the whole thing but as soon as we put the blanket on the grass huge ants started crawling in it, not what we expected.  So, she had to …

New Year’s in Panama is all about going to the beach with friends and family.  Every year we used to go to Taboga, an island about 20 mins away from the city, and last year we were able to take Amanda for the first and probably the last time.  So much has changed regarding her …

Fiestas Patrias

On the helicopter

Last week we had our National Holidays and at first we weren’t planning on going anywhere mainly because  Juandi didn’t want to have an emergency and be stuck in traffic because of all the people going out of the city.  My aunt suggested going by helicopter to their beach house but my first reaction was …
