Where did that little Red-Headed boy come from???

Papa and his grand kids...
I love this picture of my dad with my children! He will be 69 this year and is still having a fun time with his grand kids!!
I also think it's a great picture because you can see how different all of my children look! Lilly looks mostly like her dad, she has a lot of 'Flores' in her face and in her character.
But, my boys are almost ALL Chavoya! They both look just like me and have Chavoya!!!
It's so funny to see my boys with their heads close together like this because you can see how different they look! You would never think that they are brothers, Jacob has such dark, black hair (which he actually gets from my mom)...and then there is my Red-Headed boy Aaron...
I know that Gerardo had light colored hair when he was a toddler. But I truly believe that this red hair comes from the Chavoya side of the family. My grandmother's brother's had bright red hair.
This is actually a picture of a couple of my cousins that have been blessed with red hair...just in case you don't believe

Chavoya Red-Headed Cousins!

Aaron's Favorite Thing to Do:

I have a 2 year old that is addicted to the Internet. This is his favorite thing to do and his favorite place to be: right in front of the computer.
His favorite website is, he watches Yo Gabba Gabba, Ni Hao Kai-Lan, The Wonder Pets, Go Diego Go, Dora the Explorer and all of the others...
I really cannot complain too much about his addiction to the computer and to the t.v. because he is actually one of the most gifted 2 year olds I have ever seen!...
He knows, by sight, about 1/2 of the alphabet, and even knows the sounds that they make!! Just yesterday when we were walking into Kohl's, I asked him what each letter was and he KNEW K, O, H, L, S,...he said without missing a beat!!
He can also count to 10 and knows, by sight, the numbers 1-10!! If we get into an elevator I can tell him to push "3"...and HE WILL, he won't push any other buttons except the number that I tell him to!!
Even though I am his mom, I do believe that he is advanced for his age, I may be wrong as far as the exact milestones should be, but I am just going by/comparing Aaron to my other two children, both Jacob and Lilly learned their alphabets and letters around 4 years of age. Am I bragging...yeah, maybe..but hey!...he's my kid..that's allowed right???
He is a special boy! And his Tia's have even said that he is 'super special' and 'marches to the beat of his own drum'....he is one heck of a kiddo!!
Good Job Aaron!!
