Pollo anyone?

Lukas discovered a really good fast food Cuban place down here, Polla Tropical. Aksel and I didn't get to try it until last weekend and we BOTH loved it. It was the first time Aksel ate whole pieces of chicken and didn't spit them out....maybe it was the mustard curry sauce.

Love is in the air......

Aksel has a little girlfriend and her name is Camilla. She is the youngest daughter of my friend, Melissa, from college who lives near us. Camilla is a little younger then Aksel, but they really like spending time together. We have been going to story time every Tuesday morning and this week we went to MOPS together. While we were driving to MOPS I turned around and caught the two of them holding hands in the car while watching a cute!!! We think they are totally dating, well as much as you can when you are one years old.

Back at it...

Sorry to all our readers for the long pause in our blog. We moved into our new house, had several visitors, and Annika was sick for about a month and a half. Aksel has been very busy and loves life. He is very independent, loves anything that he can play with a ball, going to the park, going on walks, reading books, playing with trains, and saying several words. He can say, "ball, dog, stuck, car, choo choo, tickle, dad, mom, please, yes" all in his own version. We went to the beach this past week, after having a cold winter, while Laura was here, Aksel thought it was great except didn't like to walk in the sand so he stayed on the towels.

Hotel Holidays

We are currently residing in our fourth home within the last month, the Residence Inn. It is not too bad, we have a little one bedroom "apartment" with living, dining, desk, kitchen and bath with separate sleeping quarters. I have enjoyed the simplicity and not having to cook breakfast and most dinners. With trips to IKEA and Target, we have a few decorations to spruce up the place for the holidays, it's amazing what a 2' pre-lit tree, tinsel, lights and little ornaments can do!

Our life has been a little crazy the past few months, but we are still trying to capture moments and give Aksel fun experiences. This past weekend was Halloween and we were invited to a party thrown by some lovely people in our neighborhood. We were not sure how long Aksel would last due to all the costumes, but he did pretty well, very intrigued by it all. Aksel was a doctor who did not want to wear his hat or stethoscope, Lukas was a Scottish golfer and I was a cat.

One Year!!!

Sorry for the delay in blogging, but due to our upcoming move things are a little crazy these days! On October 8th at 11:58am Aksel turned one years old, where does time go? For his birthday we took him to Florida or so we said. He wore his birthday shirt on the plane so everyone knew what a special day it was for him. Happy Birthday Buddy!!
