Eduardo, el portero

Ever since I was born, Eduardo has been taking care of our apartment.  I like him a lot.  He always greets me with a smile.  So I smile back.  Here we are, us two.

Mother Daughter Turkish Food

Yesterday three couples of mother and daughter got together to prepare Turkish food.  Anne brought me, Irene brought Sofi, and Lassie brought Barbie.  We Turks taught the non Turks how to prepare Turkish food.  We prepared the lentil balls, bulgur, borek, and Papá's favorite: the Sultan's plate.  For dessert, Anneanne's fruit and cookie cake.

It was a lot of fun, but also a lot of work.  First, I arranged the details with Sofi, the only two who seemed able to coordinate things.

After deciding what to do, we went to tell Barbie and Irene.  Here's a couple of pics of the transmission of information.

Then we told Anne and Lassie, altogether.

Later, Papá and Fede came for dinner.  And I played like crazy with Fede.  He even let me play with his phone, which has a manzanita!!!  (Papá and Anne say I can play with anything except the things that have a manzanita).

 It was very tiring.  Fortunately, at the end Anne let me rest properly in bed.

A Blast from the Past

So, a long long time ago, I can still remember, when I was soooo  smallll, Papá used to "Boing" me up.  He says I liked it...  I don't know....  I guess I did, but how can you tell from my face back then?

A New Activity in the Playbook

I have recently discovered something that, though I cannot yet master, looks quite enjoyable.  I will work to add it to the list of my superpowers...  Check out my earliest attempts.

Tío Tacho and Tía Elena

Last week, the tíos came to visit.  We had a great time together.  Tío Tacho is close to my age, so he fought with me a lot, but all in a very playful way.  I admit I liked it.

The first night, Billy was also in Madrid, so we did a pic for Abuelo.  Hola Abuelo!!!

We went together to Segovia.  It was a beautiful day.

The grown ups and Tacho ate cochinillo.  Dont know why, but they thought I had some resemblance with the cochinillo, so they kept hiding me from the cook.  What do you think?

Back in Madrid, we showed them one of Anne's Madrilean favorites: Starbucks!  Tacho and I enjoyed it plenty!

We also took the most famosest pic in Madrid.  Can you spot the two bears?

Helping with Family Finances

I have decided it is time to step up and help Papa and Anne with their finances.  They are teachers, and as such will never make enough to satisfy my princess needs.  So I started reading about a way to help.  If anyone has suggestions, feel free to write!

For those who do not read Spanish, the book is on how to pay less taxes...

The Coolest, most cancheras babies...

Those are me and Sofi...  Any doubt?  Here I am showing my super-shades with Irene, who also has super shades.  She is cool, but I am a different category.

I then lent my shades to Sofi...  Super Cool, no?  They look great together.  The mom should buy her shades so that we can hang out coolly together.

Anne´s shades are also cool...  and she got me mine!  we look so chic together!

And one of the four of us...  Sofi and I forgot about the shades in this one...

Sharing my toys...

I have mixed feelings about sharing my toys.  In general, I would think I don´t like to.  But sometimes, I give in.  This happens when the one who wants to play with a toy of mine really, but I mean REALLY, wants it.  This happened the other day with Sofi.

Supporting the Chapulcu in Gezi

For those unaware, the chapulcu are the protesters in Turkey.  Those trying to get an arrogant extremist undemocratic guy out of the government.  I support the chapulcu, and here is my little contribution to the movement.

Anais... that little cutie

Last Saturday Anais came over.  She is about 4 months old now, such a cutie...  Check her out.  I have so much to teach her.  Here I am teaching her how to take her socks off...  unfortunately, I failed.  I don´t know if it was the type of sock or that she just did not let me.

Here I am just playing cool.  I was dying to play with her, but she is a baby, so I have to keep up with appearances and play the cool, grown up girl.  Anne and her Papá did not seem to care much, but look at how Anais was falling for my trick!

I also had to interact a bit with her parents, mainly so that they bring her over again.  But I have to say, her father is a weird dude.  So weird, I felt compelled to study him, as you can see next.

With her Anne...  well, judge by the pic... we had our altercations.

Anais was not the only one to show up.  My tía Noelia and tío Javi came.  With Noelia I am super familiar by now.  She tells me all the latest gossip in Spain, which my Anne and Papá know nothing about.  

And tío Javi changed a lot!  This time he was grabbing me, playing, doing faces...  super fun!  I HAD to study such a fun dude!

Finally, a new guy showed up.  Agustín.  He was nice, I also spent a long time with him.  Another argie...
