First Contact!

We break the 2 month blogging drought to bring you an internet happy dance:
We had our first contact with another NGLY1 family!

On the first day of spring, we couldn't have asked for a better sign of new life or hope.  :)

While we have our reasons, as an apology for not blogging, here are some photos from the phone.  

Bertrand's new haircut elicited lots of thumbs-ups and fist bumps from guys!  
...and death threats directed at the clipper wielder from the women in his life.  
Needless to say, we may be watching our backs for his next hair cut.  ;)

We call him the Buddy Lama.  :)
He is our teacher.  He exudes peace and enlightenment.  

Standing, holding his own bottle, AND being ridiculously good looking all at the same time!

This pose is more of a Sergeant Buddy.  
You can actually believe he weighs 51 lbs in this picture.

Bertrand T. Might, the Most Interesting Man in the World.

We're already not cool enough to be seen in public with her.

Victoria, l'artiste.

Making her mother proud.  :)

The essence of Victoria.


  1. So glad to see you back!

    What does Bertrand think of his haircut? I miss the curls.

    Best wishes.

    1. I miss the curls too. :) But at least Bertrand loves his hair cut. In particular, he really enjoys all the scalp massages he's been getting. His fuzzy top is so soft! I can't help myself. :)

      Best wishes to you too! :)

  2. My god, look how big they're getting! Bertrand got a buzz cut and somehow Victoria managed to find all the curls and glue them onto her head! ;)

    Both looking adorable, as ever.


    1. Thanks, Emily! That's pretty much how it happened. ;) Hugs!

  3. I've so missed your blog (and our emails!). I think I'm the one "owing" on that one, . . . so glad to see this post today. I heart BOTH of your amazing kids, and you too.

    (PS. house sold, moving in three weeks, agh!! that explains the lack of messages -- well that and work. blech). xoxoxo

  4. Great pics, Cristina! I wanted to stand up and applaud when I saw the one of Bertrand standing and holding his own bottle. Hurray!!

    1. Thanks, Fawn! You can bet we're been cheering here too! :) So proud of my boy!

  5. Me encantan las fotos! Bertrand looks so grown u with that look! And Victoria is so cool and gorgeaus! Fabulosos todos!

  6. So nice to hear from you again, and SO AMAZING to see B holding his bottle in the stander! WOW! -Ashley

  7. I've been out of blogger land for a looong time, myself, but how happy I am to come back and see your Bertrand looking so super cool! Your daughter is gorgeous, too. I will now go break my long blogging drought and acknowledge that third kid I had while I was gone! :)

    1. For real?! Congratulations, Allie! That is wonderful! Is it another handsome boy? You were working on that football team, right? ;)

      Thanks for the compliments on my two munchkins. :) They blow me away each and every day.

      Hope all is well back in NC (or KY?)! Hugs to you and the entire family!
