We double-dipped and used that same turtle costume last year but she was only just starting to walk.
Here's a video of Anna in the neighborhood - i hope that she didn't get freaked out by the camera i had when she answered the door.

That picture reminded me of another photo of Seasson we had when she was younger but just a few years older than Anna. I definitely see some similarities here.
Nana got Anna a water/sand table with some chunky plastic animals. It's perfect because Anna is completely OCD about washing her hands in the sink and now she can just play with the water table outside and feed the urge. Of course she's found the benefit of mixing water and sand together - lovely.
another story.Everybody was cool during dinner.

The next day we went back and Anna behaved very well while getting her haircut. It was over after 3 snips....but those 3 snips were critical because image is everything in the toddler room at daycare.
She has a little bangs now to keep the hair out of her eyes and the back was all evened out.
We even got a first haircut certificate. Anna is going to need to learn how to smile in the "after" picture to really sell the product.

Hey everybody - we just got back from San Diego. I was attending the American Thoracic Society conference during the day and hanging out with the family later in the day. Anna was well behaved on the planes but wanted to be awake the whole time. Here are some of the pics from our trip...
We went out to eat at all the hot spots - the Gaslamp distrinct, along the water, in Oldtown. While having dinner the waiter dropped a glass of ice water on Anna's head....she was mortified.
The hotel pool was a daily retreat for us. Anna puts her mouth and nose in the water when you show her how to blow bubbles. We'd like to get her back in the water regularly with swimming lessons again this summer.
Of course we had to visit the San Diego Zoo! The zoo was magnificent. The best aspect of the zoo was how the landscaping and botanical aspects were completely integrated with the exhibits - you really felt like you were in that area of the globe, especially in the enormous aviaries. Anna was a big fish fan and she also liked the giraffes and hippos.
But Anna's favorite part was the petting grotto. She chased the goats down and also got to play with sheep and bunnies.So, will Anna turn into a butterfly one day?
