8 Months old!


Our little monkey is 8 months old today. She is so much fun right now, we love having her around. Anya is total social butterfly and loves to have people around. Last night we had a whole bunch of masters students over for dinner (the come over every Thursday) and she spent the entire night being passed around from person to person, kissing, hugging and smiling at everyone. She loves to have kids from the branch over for sleepovers and to visit with random people in the street. She has two teeth (they have been there for over a month but it is hard to get a picture of them) and likes to eat sometimes. She hates pureed baby food and would much rather eat slightly mashed food from our plates her favorite being butter chicken, or other various rice and sauce Indian dishes, potatoes, carrots, peas, grapes, apples, strawberries, oatmeal, and bread products. She weighs in at a low 16 and 1/2 pounds and she can move pretty fast now. She crawls all over the apartment, following me around until she finds something interesting to climb on, her favorite being the edge of the couch and dining chairs and she has mastered getting off of the couch with out disaster. She also knows where her toys are kept and therefore pulls the basket out and all over the living room floor three or four times a day. I was going to take her out today to take pictures with the spring flowers but she was not feeling great so we will have to try that tomorrow. I do however have plenty of pictures from the last week to share.



On this day, she was not feeling so great so she snuggled down and watched Cars.

Anya is absolutely adorable, and it is hard to believe that she and Reid are only a day apart: crawling--he is barely contemplating it; teeth--first two just showed up last week, and he is going on 24 pounds. She looks like she is a lot of fun--Reid is and he isn't nearly as coordinated.

I love how much hair she has. Two thick (relatively) ponytails at eight months. She is petite, but Mr. Big ole David is now only a few pounds heavier at a year. They don't gain much when they get mobile. Thanks for posting cute pics.

CUTE! The first picture of Anya I saw I knew for sure that she looked like you Chrys, but then, I saw another one and I saw Adam in her! So I now have decided that she is a darling mixture of both of you.
