AMANDA’S LITTLE SISTER VIOLETA IS HERE!

IMG_1749

Since Amanda passed away I really haven’t been able to post anymore.  Mainly because I have so many things and feelings on my mind that I wouldn’t even know where to begin.  Plus, this blog was about Amanda.  About her days and nights, her adventures, her disease, her struggles, her happiness, her personality and so …

A FEW FIRSTS

IMG_8433

Amanda got her first haircut.  Her hair wasn’t really long but I am a believer that if you want it to grow you need to trim it, plus it was pretty uneven in some places.  She behaved really well through the whole process and the end result is super cute.  She looks a little bit …

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 …

AMANDA HAD FRIENDS OVER…

Playing before bedtime.

On Valentine’s Day Amanda had three friends over: Valentina, Gretel and Teacher Maecy.  She sat in the living room patiently waiting for them and when they arrived they had a blast playing with maracas, plastic eggs and many other fun things.  At one point either Amanda, Gretel or Valentina cried, after all, they are kids/babies!  …

Fun (and funny) Stuff…

IMG_7834

Over here someone is becoming a little vain.  Yes, Amanda loves to look at herself in the mirror, and when we take it away, she does not like it one bit.  We used the mirror a lot when she was younger, but we hadn’t used it much for quite a few months…I kind of forgot …

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 …

First Time Baking = First Tantrum

Can't keep my eyes off The Wonder Pets

A couple of weeks ago I bought the simplest cookie dough I could find to try baking with Amanda.  So last week I put her in her tumble forms chair with her Bipap, get all the stuff ready and when I put the cookie dough bag in her hands she starts crying.  So I sing …

Enjoying the Holidays

IMG_6108

Amanda doesn’t really grasp the meaning of Christmas yet, but she sure enjoys seeing lights and going to celebrations where she sees people and listens to music.  And we sure enjoy dressing her up, seeing her absorbing the world around her, and having some family memories to build up and look back to forever. On …
