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 […]
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:
Anna was given a ducky and a bear that she loves. Of course, she really really needs more stuffed animals, as you can see here and in this better shot here that John took upon having the same idea less than 24 hours later (and we missed some…). One of our favorite cards to celebrate Anna’s birth was from our friend Emily. It had “types” of baby girls, which included “stuffed animal magnet.” Yep.
GramE has been trying to teach Anna to “E.T.”, or touch pointer fingers, with limited but some success.
Anna welcomed Elliot (and mom Laura). Until, that is, he wanted to play with a toy that immediately became more desirable than all the other toys. Sharing lessons begin. We were amused whenever Elliot, who is very mobile, would walk away from Anna, she would scream. Loneliness? Anger? We’re not sure. But we’re interested to see how she responds to that when she’s mobile, as that’s now two older men (Joshua K being the other) who have broken her heart by walking away.
Here’s a video of Anna playing peekaboo with Daddy after her bath. In case you’re wondering, we’ve still been taking pictures (sorry–images–we’re a professional establishment), but a wee bit behind on blogposts. Here are the photos we’ve posted for February, March, and April.
LaLaLa, doing my morning workout with my duckie…
GramE, of course, can’t miss the fun! So she comes, too, and there are now three grandmothers who are playing with me. I tolerate it pretty well. I don’t want them to feel badly, you know. (Close-up provided so you can admire my acting skills.)
There are two videos in a row of their crazy antics here. All appeared to be going well. The grandmothers were getting along splendidly. Suddenly, a fight breaks out! I am pulled in three directions! Does my mommy save me? No! She takes a photograph!
Now, I ask you, do I have too many grandmothers? If you need to see more to decide, you can see the rest of my time with the three of them here. I throw myself upon the mercy of the court of public opinion.
