I have not written in a while, so in my grandma’s honor (my most avid reader), I will post a mini update.
Mila’s talking has taken off, she is the most adorable little human being ever! She understands English and Spanish and speaks both. She favors English, which is the reason that our house is a Spanish-only house, for now. She is in an incredible nanny-sharing situation with her best baby friend Adam, Delna and Aaron’s baby, and Hayden, an adorable two year old girl. Valerie, Hayen’s mom, takes care of the three of them. We feel very fortunate to have found such a cool nanny, with such an amazing daughter. Mila looks forward to playing with Hayden every day and from our office we can hear them running up and down the house laughing.
We are working hard with the best team ever! Last post, I talked about heading to Ecuador in May to do some fundraising, well that trip never happened – primarily because funding is going very well and a big group trip to Ecuador simply is not needed. In the past I have not written enough about our co-founders, Aaron and Delna. They are super cool! Jax and I could not be more delighted to be working daily with such an amazing couple. They both bring complementary parts to the company and between the four of us, we form a very effective team.
Our past month has been spent noses deep studying startup methodologies. I now know so much more about the business world and have to admit that I’m pretty excited about our next steps.
On another note, my cousin Manuela and her boyfriend Jordan came to visit us for a long weekend and we had the nicest time ever! Mila absolutely loved them and Jordan became her official favorite name to say over and over! By the end of their 3 day visit, she was ready to go back to New Orleans with them. It was so nice to see them!
Ella will be here soon. My belly is very big now and my movement is limited. I am so looking forward to meeting this little girl. We already love her so much and cannot wait to have her in our arms. Mila is constantly talking about “ñaña Ella” (sister Ella in Quetchua) and pointing to her stomach, so something about Ella’s arrival is registering! Our house is all ready for her and the only thing we are missing is the double stroller.
Life is good, Mila is happy growing and adorable, Jax is awesome, Ella is on track for a healthy birth, Yaku and Yana are still spoiled and loved and I’m just happy to be able in the middle of it all.
