Anna’s First Birthday Party

Anna’s First Birthday Party

We had a family “Megan’s Home/Anna’s One” party the weekend before Anna’s first birthday. We had a blast. Check out photos here. Here’s a video of Anna playing with her second cousin Joshua, and here’s us singing Happy Birthday to her. Anna also enjoyed playing […]

Anna’s ONE!

Anna’s ONE!

Happy Birthday, Little Bear! Aunt Megan, who was here for the big day, helped me make a series of videos of Anna showing the words and signs she knows. Well, theoretically. “Outside words” came out the closest to what I had envisioned. Oh, and before […]

March 2011

I’m planning a separate post for our big March adventure, a 3 day visit to Grandma and Grandpa’s house. Here’s the rest of what was going on in March: Uncle Max came by for a visit. Anna enjoyed playing ball with him. And now we […]

Swing!

Swing!

Anna had a spectacular time on the swing at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. I couldn’t decide which photo of John’s was my favorite, so here you go. Listen and you can hear giggling. Photos full size here.

Here’s what we were up to in January. Rachel, a college friend, came to visit us. Our favorite Anna moment was when Anna had a toy in each hand. The dilemma came when Rachel offered her a third toy. Anna looked at her left hand, […]

Play Ball!

Play Ball!

Someone‘s (finally) feeling better! After nearly two weeks of feeling under the weather, Anna seems to be back to her normal self. As evidenced by this video I took today, we had a ball.

Do I Have Too Many Grandmothers?!

Do I Have Too Many Grandmothers?!

LaLaLa, doing my morning workout with my duckie… Enter Grandma (grandmother #1). We play with my stacking cups. Still, a quiet, peaceful morning. “GramC” (known to the world as Cindy, GramE’s best friend) wants to come over and play. We play with my stacking cups. […]

Christmas Visits 2010

Christmas Visits 2010

This Christmas, we missed Christmas Eve Vigils, and, in fact, all church services. I really missed them. It really drove home for me that going to church is not out of obligation–it’s out of need. I need to be reminded of the Living God. I […]
