I studied Spanish as my major in college, and have travelled to Spain, Venezuela, and various parts of Mexico. I currently teach high school Spanish and teach private lessons to adults who want to learn Spanish. I make no claims to speak Spanish perfectly or even really fluently, although I can speak fairly well and enjoy it. I have a grammar nerd kind of brain and love getting into the grammatical details of the language.

comment Photos showing growth - ideas?
I did decide to go for outdoor pictures, especially appropriate with my little adventurer. I've taken pictures on a little tricicle for 13, 14, and 15 months so far, with 16 months coming up soon. It shows his growth and development of balance and other skills as learns to use the trike.

comment How do I get a young toddler to walk holding my hand?
This has seemed to be the approach that works best for us. He gets a choice, but only the 2 acceptable choices. I think giving it a little more time and practice has helped as well.

comment Is it okay for both parents to be asleep at the same time?
+1 Very true. Somehow even when you're asleep, your brain knows when it needs to be on alert, and when it doesn't.
