Since I did a post on the many faces of Victoria, I figured I needed to do one for Anna, too. So here goes...
This girl is really funny. She has a very intense and outgoing personality. She is cute as a bug, can go from happy to mad to sad in a matter of seconds, and everything she is feeling is written all over her face and body.
She has the most beautiful eyes and she is physically pretty adept at whatever she wants to do. She was climbing up slides and and cruising months ago, and is now starting to walk.
She needed orthotics for flat feet, and that is what has slowed her done so far. Now that she has them, I'm sure she will progress much faster.
I'm pretty sure she sees herself in her own mind running instead of walking, because she tries to go so fast when she is taking steps and ends up falling down. Funny girl.
Talk to the hand people.....
Anna's typical look. This is what she looks like most of the time.
And this too.
This is her eating sand face.
And her I don't want to sit still and take pictures look.
Her I'm not impressed look.
Big beautiful brown eyes
When we first met Anna, it was very difficult to get a smile out of her. I don't think she had had alot of reason to smile. She is also very smart, and was pretty skeptical of who Mark and I were....these 2 strangers who were now visiting and playing with her everyday.
Just thinking about that, I had to post these pics from the first day we met the girls. Such sweet memories!
See what I mean about those eyes!!!
And here she is today.
She has changed so much in 9 1/2 months. We are so very blessed! We could not imagine our family without our little Anna Boo!

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
