I love going to the park

Yes. That's another thing I am really enjoying this summer: going to the park.

I really like it because it is a lot of fun. There are plenty of cool things to do at parks... going down the slide... pushing on the swing... riding on the jumping birds...

There are plenty of parks here and, as the weather is really sunny and warm, I can go very often. Honestly, don't know why daddy kept on saying that in La Coruna rains all the time.... it is so not true ! Must be only happening when he is around...


I like it a lot when I go to the park with the abuelo and the abuela because they also play with me but what I enjoy most is to spend time with other children. I have made a lot of friends already !

The funny thing is that here in Spain, when I see other children I just look like everyone else. It is kind of relaxing though I have to say I was getting used to the attention and the pictures from the locals back home in Shanghai !

Well... guess I am still a bit different because I speak a bit of Chinese and that's not very common here in Spain but I am sure that many of the girls find it cute and interesting :-)


Ah ! there is something else I really enjoy when I go to the park and that is grabbing all the toys from other kids ! I think mom was not having a good time with that but by now she has learned that, at the playground... everything belongs to everyone !

Or.. don't you think I look cute with this stroller from my friend Paula? My uncle Pabli took this picture last week when he took me to the park with auntie Nuky. I loved it !


And look, today I went to the park with my friends Xulia, Lara and Miguelito.

They are the cousins of my auntie Susi so I think that kind of makes them my cousins too, right? that would be great because I really like them and we had a lot of fun !

I can't wait to see them again.

Rocco

And I said that my "frienemy" relationship with Rocco needed a post on its own so... here we go.

Well, let's just say that Rocco was not too happy to see me when I arrived. And I can see why. Cute as I am... center of attention... abuelo and abuela all over me because they missed me so much... pues eso, el "rey del mambo" we were talking about.

In the beginning we kind of ignored each other and as days passed by the routine kind of went on like this: Daniel approaches Rocco. Rocco steps back. Daniel wants to touch Rocco's tail. Rocco doesn't seem to be too convinced about the idea. Daniel goes for it. Rocco barks. Daniel cries.

But, you know? things have changed... considerably. So, what can be bringing us closer and closer? FOOD ! It all started when Rocco realized that something good was going on under my high chair at meal time. Suddenly he was quite happy to see me !

And then, el abuelo tought me something fun... I can feed Rocco ! I was afraid in the beggining but now I really like it. Specially when he tickles me with his moustache (don;t worry dad, i always wash my hands after).

So, more to come on Rocco but I have a feeling that this is going to be the beginning of a nice friendship!

Vivir na Coruña

Already 2 weeks since we arrived to La Coruna? and I can hardly believe it !

When we were in the flight from Shanghai and mom was telling me about the many nice things awaiting, everything sounded very nice and, now that I have been here for a while, I can only say that my expectations have been not only met but also exceeded.
The amazing blue water at the beach, the many friends I play with at the park, the long walks with my new friend Rocco (wow, that really deserves a post on its own!)...
And, of course, the most important thing... spending time with el abuelito Fernando, la abuelita Merche, el tio Inaki y la tia Susi. We are doing so many things together and having so much fun ! I really felt them very close already when we talked every day on Skype but this is even better!
Of course, it also helps when you are the target of all attentions. Needless to say, I am the "new kid on the block", the "jewel of the crown", vamos, the "king of mambo"!

My first hair cut

Not that my lovely curls weren't any cute but today I went for my first hair cut (as dad predicted it... it happened as soon as he took the flight to Shanghai :-) And, if you gotta get your hair cut... get it done in style !
Have to confess I was a bit worried when I heard that they were going to cut somehting but then Grandma and mom took me to a really cool place: "Fashionkids".
As soon as we came in tey gave me a nice robe (similar to the bib I have at home but faaaaaaar longer) and off I went to meet my hairstylist: Adri.
And then... I saw the cars. A beautiful yellow old style car, a red fire-truck and a blue racing car. I will only say that I ended up climbing into the three of them, singing with Adri and watching cartoons.
I had so much fun that I totally forgot I had come to "get something cut". Can you imagine? By the time we were done, I looked into the mirror and there I was.... cuttest as ever !
And that wasn't all... I even got a 1st hair cut certificate with my piucture and a bit of my hair.
Mmmm, now I know why mom has so much fun at the hair dresser. I already look forward to the next visit !

Si si si !!!

My uncle had already warned it.... even Pulpo Paul left no room for questioning.... and, yesterday, finally happened:
Spain is CAMPEONA DEL MUNDO !!!!

My apologies if the post today is short and sweet but, as you can underdstand, I am still in celebration mode. In any case... an image is worth a thousand words :-)

La decision de Daniel

I know it has been ages since I wrote the last blog but tomorrow the match of the season taking place: Spain vs. Germany in World Cupr semi finals. As you can imagine, such an ocassion deserves a good blog !

24 hours before the match both my mom and dad have received numerous emails from all of you asking the golden question: who will support Daniel tomorrow? Spain? Germany?

There fore I write this blog today (totally free and voluntarily) to express my support for La Roja. Germany is cool, I love eating sausages and I even find Schweinsteiger kind of cute but.... what can I do.... in the end of the end I am a Corazon Latino !!!! Tiki taka, tiki taka....
