Our two little girls

We've had Chakapu for a year now and she's very much at home. Like Angelina, she likes a lot of human contact and she always wants to be where we are in the house. At first she was a little wary of this new creature making lots of noise in the house, now they're great friends (well, that is until Angelina starts pulling Chakapu's tail). Really mostly Chakapu ignores Angelina, she just stays close by.

and playing with Daddy

Angelina takes her first international trip!

She has her US passport, but not the CH one yet. It's valid for 5 yrs, which is good as we don't have to pay again but funny because her picture in 5 yrs will look nothing like her now. She was AMAZING on the flights, both ways. She slept almost the whole 13+hrs, much to the relief of everyone on the plane. She's a born traveller.

We introduced her to her Swiss family and friends and of course she was always the star. Perhaps her favourite was her cousin Megane who, when she was with us, never left Angelina's side. I was wishing we could bring Megane back to the US with us!

But she also made sure her grandpapa remembered her when she left by leaving a huge poop while he was holding her. :)

I just love how she always has her hands over her face when sleeping, like she's saying "leave me alone I want to sleep!"

We went to CH because Frederic had a conference in Grindelwald. This is the view from our hotel room terrace.

And visiting with her new friend Coline, Fredo's god daughter.

And back home!

There are tons more pictures to load up, so check back soon!

And let's not forget Chakapu! She's done fairly well sharing her space with our new arrival. Mostly she ignores Angelina, but occassionally she comes over to find out what all the ruckus is about.

Amazing Angelina

Angelina is growing like mad. Today she's 9 weeks old and as of last week weighed 10.5 lbs! There are days I swear she's gained a pound in an hour. She has more long periods of alertness now, where she just sits and watches the world. She clearly wants to talk and she's definitely showing her strong character! (that's our nice way of saying she's strong willed and sometimes challenging). She's a happy kid most of the time, so we can't complain. Her smiles light up the room already!

"Mommy! Get away from me!"

"Aren't I cute as can be?"

"My favorite position, asleep right next to my food source!"

Don't worry, we didn't leave her wrapped in those blankets,that was just for transfer.

"my other favorite position, with my Papa."
Mommy's favorite position, Angelina asleep on her own!
