BABY BRA NEEDED






I couldn't resist the opportunity to share these hilarious but adorable pictures of Anna.  Could "rolls" ever be more precious than on a chunky little baby?  The other night, I was trying to clean up the kitchen after dinner, Brian was busy and Anna was in need of attention.  So I ventured to sit Anna in the kitchen sink next to where I was loading the dishwasher.  She was completely content to explore the water running from the faucet.  I later decided to go ahead and bathe her in the sink, and oh my goodness, what little rolls beheld me.  I'm beginning to wonder if I should invest in a baby bra for her.  Is there such a thing?  She is one "healthy" baby girl.  If I wasn't nursing her, I might be concerned I was giving her a few too many bottles.  I guess my milk just really agrees with her!

Anna's at such a sweet age.  I want to hold onto every day, as it seems they are going by so quickly.  Even Catherine said the other day, "Mommy, Anna is just growing up way too fast."  I couldn't agree more.  She's been saying "by-by-by" for a while and a couple weeks ago as we were strolling through Target, she started saying "da-da."  I try to teach her every day to say "ma-ma" but to no avail.  I just know one day soon she's gonna finally say it, and it will be music to my ears.  She's sitting up real well now and is exploring everything with her hands and mouth.  She's eating baby food well and is learning to pick up puffs and cheerios and put them in her mouth.  She's still a little choke with them sometimes, though.  And she loves to give kisses (I guess that's what you'd call them).  When Brian or I pick her up, she instantly goes for our faces with her mouth.  She is so precious and so much fun.
