There is something truly magical about the first time your child looks at you, and with language as clear as day, asks for something.
That happened to me for the first time tonight. Soleil was chomping down her dinner when all of a sudden she stopped, pointed at her sippy-cup and said…
Up until this moment it’s all been mumbo-bumbo. Sure, she can say words, like Kiki for example. But sometimes she is pointing at Kiki, and sometimes she is pointing at a passing car.
Tonight I saw her clearly think about what she wanted, and ask for it using the correct language.
AMAZING! Having a child truly is a life changing experience. Just watching them explore the world adds so much excitement to life.
Even toilets are fun.
We are now over half way through our stay in Mendoza. In less than 2 months we’ll be back on the road, living out of the van. No more nice apartment… <sigh>
In Sol’s world, one of the biggest losses will be the bathtub.
We’re enjoying the time while it lasts though. In a couple more days my Mom will show up for our last 6 weeks in Mendoza.
Everyone is really looking forward to her arriving. She’ll be our last visitor.
Overall we’ve really fallen in love with Mendoza. Great town. And we’ve made some good friends here. I imagine we’ll be a little sad to leave.

In the meantime, we’re still bustin out our family climbing days. Sol is now sourcing her own boulder projects and sending them on command.
And my other lady is also killing it! Below, Stevie roping up and ready to crush…
I’ll leave you with some pictures from Arenales last week.
This is my dream place. High in the mountains. Big walls. Beautiful. Peaceful. No internet.
