Camila is a toddler

All of the sudden my little baby has become a toddler. After much practicing Camila started walking last week and now, there is nothing to stop her. Even before walking she was already climbing - she knows how to use step-stools to reach the drawers in the kitchen and how to use Mika's chair to get to the window. She loves using tools of all kinds, she insists on using a fork to feed herself, writing with pen on paper and has even figured out she can use a pen to reach the computer keyboard that mom put far away from her hands. She LOVES using the computer, which makes it hard for Mika to watch her shows.

She also loves being outside and ride on ride-on toys. She loves petting the cats and eating their food. Like Syria, she likes to go into the shower after we take a shower - unlike Syria she also likes taking baths.

Here are some pictures of my non-baby:

Mika dances

Mika is going through a "girl" stage. She is very much into princesses and barbies and will shriek with joy when she sees anything with a picture of any of them. She also likes wearing make up and playing dress up (though she's been doing the latter for months). She's been insisting that we take her to "ballerina class" for months, and we finally started her. The first class was a bit of a disappointment, as she didn't really get to dance but we'll see what she thinks after the cycle is over.

My folks came a couple of weekends ago to pick her up to spend some time with them, and soon she'll be going to visit Mike's parents as well.
