Alegria

 

Alegria is Spanish for joy and happiness. Of course, our little Lorena brings a lot of joy and happiness in the house.

Alegria is also the title of a show and its accompanying CD of "Cirque du Soleil". Normally, daddy is not a fan of circuses. He particularly dislikes clowns, who are supposed to be funny but daddy prefers a different kind of humor. On the other hand, as kid he liked clowns, so probably he will have to see clowns and circuses in the future again with little Lorena...

But then again, "Cirque du Soleil" is a different kind of circus. For those who have not seen it yet, I can recommend it. Alegria is one of their shows and we bought the music on CD too. Lorena really loves it. She is dancing / moving left and right whenever she hears this music. Also classical and Irish music make her really happy.

Another thing that can make her happy is food.

Here we can see Lorena early in the morning today, where we gave her little pieces of banana for the first time. Normally she gets this mushed. But well, so far she is still playing with food and she didn't realise yet that she can actually eat it. Besides between her fingers and on the table, we also found pieces of banana all over the floor.

 

Another new kind of food for her is spinach. Initially she looked a bit weird (as can be seen on the picture underneath) and made funny faces, but already soon she started to like it.

 

Besides with food, she also likes to play with drinks, or in fact in which they are delivered. He we can see her with one of her most favourite toys: a bottle with water...

 

Two days ago she also started to crawl. Within two days she mastered it completely and now she moves rather quickly through the apartment, as well are her parents...

Also Tommy, the "always sleeping cat" is not safe anymore...
