The last time I posted about Mimi it was a few months after she turned 3 years old. She is now 4.5 years old and she has grown SOO much. Well, she sounds older, she acts older, her face looks older, but she is still my little petite lady. According to the scale, she has gain some weight but according to my eyes, she is still the same. I can still say at places that she is 2 years old so I dont have to pay the fare for her and they never question it... very convenient for me :) We have weighted her a few times and it differs from one scale to the other, but one thing is for sure, she is still on the 20's, she is close to 30 pounds, but not quite yet. (Update: Have official height and weight: She is 32 pounds and 39 inches tall (3'3"). That is supposedly 11st percentile for her age.

Mimi is still VERY independent, however only when she wants. She likes to do everything her way, so even though she can perfectly feed herself since she was like 2 years old, sometimes she just wants to be babied and have somebody to feed her. She loves asking that to my grandma who has a weak heart for her. She still loves the water very much and she's not afraid of the pool or beach or going under water.

I have lost count of how many times she has needed stitches so far, but for the purpose of not forgetting the dates and keeping it here, she got two new ones. An scar on the right side of her nose (very scary moment when that happened back in August 2010), and then another one in her head (totally cured already and lost inside her hair) that happened in August 2011. I guess August is not her month.

Camila and her spent a few months with their dad in Ecuador which was a great experience for her, because got to meet her dad's family (like REALLY know them) and she got the oportunity to go to school there and experience something different. She started Pre-K there, because their school year is from April to November, instead of September to June like here or the states.

I picked her up on her birthday's weekend back in May and they made a mini pool party for her. It was a beautiful experience.

She officially started Pre-K here at the end of August and she is doing great. She is very advanced for her age and her vocabulary and fine motor skills are beyond what it is expected for her age. This is kinda funny because she looks sooo tiny but her language is so fluent that you have the idea that you are talking with an adult trapped on a babies body.

She loves playing Wii Sports and computer games, and her favorite things to do are coloring and pretend play (dolls and such). She is officially my little Princess and her favorite color is still PINK.

Here are some pictures from August 2010 up to now. In the first one you can see the scar she has now in her face, then doing a modeling job for Baby Time Slings, and then at Ariel Enrique's Pirate 4th Birthday party (Sept. 2010):

On this three, the first one is with Camila in our Annual Family Reunion (from my mom's side), then on the airplane on her way to Ecuador, and then eating a traditional soup from Ecuador:

Here she is being silly... The first one is at a park around February, and the second one is at another park in May when we were in Ecuador. The third one she was hiding in the bathroom door in the hotel we were staying before coming back to DR.

Here she is with her sisters at a pool day at home, then again being silly with Camila and my friend Perla... In the last one, she is just being cute....

Here she is on Father's Day eating a lollipop, then on her first day of Pre-K with Camila, and then being a goofy in front of a mirror...
Here she is flying on Gaby's birthday (while I was trying to avoid a heart attack), then playing Wii, and hugging Arnold (a plush dog with a story.... which will be for another moment).

Edited her height and weight :) First paragraph.

Precious! I cant believe how big they all are. I always forget her and Tiago are so close in age. She sounds just like him too lol!

Same for Tiago and Amelia... Like both look like they are the goofy ones... It would be a blast to have them together....

Yeah, Ecuador was very nice, wish Gaby would have gone too, but some day she will visit. Everything is sooo cheap there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We buy most of the things online, so I have wishlists to have in one place everything that we are planning (or at least hoping) to buy.
