ay que linda...que bella!

A couple of weeks ago I blogged about Palomita's obsession with the song Abracadabra by Steve Miller Band. We just started singing it to her one day out of nowhere and, well, she remembers it and she still loves it.

My dad bought her a new jumper and last week we put her in it and wow...you must see this for yourself. I honestly can't tell if that's me or my sister singing in the background (we have the same voice and mannerisms but don't look that much alike) but my dad is taping it, my grandmother and mom my are talking (that's my mom saying "ay que linda! que bella!") and I'm not quite sure who is singing the salsa playing on my dad's Ipod in the bakground. We are a wonderfully diverse family and we are head over heels in love with this child. As my sister would say "it's not right." No, baby sister, it's not.

Oh, by the way, check out her gold, yes gold, slippers and butterfly tights. If Paloma doesn't kill me with cuteness, my sister will send me over the edge with these outfits she puts on her. One of my favorites things is seeing my parents with her. My mother and father literally melt. She's just such a joy. How can such a little person bring so much happiness? I can't take it.

UPDATE: My dad called me to tell me that he didn't take the video...one of my aunt's, Miriam, took it (Titi Yin)...I should have known it was her since she's had a video camera permanently attached to her eyeball for the last 20 years! She loves videotaping and we are all so thankful for it since she has all of our childhood's recorded on tape. Thanks, Titi Yin!

UPDATE NUMBER 2
: My mom emailed me to tell me that actually it was her who was singing and neither me nor my sister. My family cracks me up. As you can probably imagine, it's never a dull moment. The good news is that now I know they actually read the blog! :)
