More pictures of Georgia folks.

These two cuties helped set the table and Jenny was in charge of the little gold leaves. For hot turkey's sake, we had to help her place them because she was laying each confetti piece down one at a time.
These are my family's dogs- Hunter, insisting he fits on Katie's lap, and D.W. being normal.

This is right after Thanksgiving dinner, just hanging around and on Chris.

As you can see it was a pretty relaxing time. It was great for Chris to get a break from work and I know he really enjoyed his time.

"I'd change her, hon, but the HUNS are INVADING!"

This was the last day there; Anna with Katie and Jon.

This is Uncle Rob. He carried Anna around the house with him all day. He normally spends his free time on the computer, but Chris pulled rank and took over the quest to rule the empire or civilization age of kings whatever.

More sleeping on Hannah.

We rocked in the rocker, Just Grandma and Me.

Seeing Great-Grandpa again. The picture is a little blurry, because they were rocking, like a west coast party...
Aunt Katie held Anna for several hours of naps.

Little Jenny "reading" to Anna. Jenny would ask my mom what the page said then would recite it to Anna. Pretty cute.

Here's Grandpa- he was lifting Anna up and down and she came close to giggling.

I'll post this now before it deletes itself.

It's been two weeks so lots of pictures to post. I'll be here all night. We went down to Georgia for the week of Thanksgiving to spend time with all the Moultons. Here's Anna reading 1776 with Dad before her first flight.

We had fun taking Anna on the plane. She actually slept most of the way. She did have one dirty diaper, of which Dad did the honors in the tiny lavatory, but thankfully no blowouts above the clouds.

Here are Grandma, Aunts Hannah and Jenny, and Anna reading books Monday morning. Introducing scales to the girl who has yet to earn her ABC's.
Naptime in Aunt Hannah's arms.

Bath time with Jenny! Aren't they cute? Just five years between aunt and niece.

Okay- I started this post Sunday night and now it has turned Wednesday and it still isn't finished. I realize that grandparents are checking this daily at least, so there has been disappointments all around. My apologies- however, I will say that I have been trying- this post refused to upload pictures for awhile. I finally wheedled the site to take some, but even those took a long time with several tries and lots of coaxing. Now the site flat out refuses to have anymore pics loaded. It's like feeding peas to a baby, or worse still, to Chris. So that is my defense. I'll go ahead and put this up and work on a new post.

Anna went down for her nap last Monday afternoon and she usually cries for a minute and then whimpers for a minute and then is asleep. This time, she cried for a minute and then silence. I sprang to her crib, to discover this:

A closer look confirms, her thumb's in there.
So maybe the NUK pacifier is a good thing- you can always throw that away. Her thumb is attached.

We went down to MD this weekend to spend some time with Chris' folks. Here's Anna enjoying her great-Grandmom.

We took Anna to her first theatrical play there, The Miracle Worker. She stared at some lights most of the time and saw about as much of the play as Helen... Okay, bad joke. Really though, she behaved very well and made it through the whole play with just one diaper intermission.
This past Monday morning, Chris had another run-in with a truck and trailer. The guy pulling the trailer was parked next to Chris and as he pulled away, he took the front door of Chris' Jeep with him. Bummer is right. Deja vu? (Chris had his foot run over and broken by a truck pulling a trailer in February...) Chris is taking it okay. In fact, if you see him driving by in the rented (keyword) brand new Silverado, extended cab and everything cool, you probably would think he's pretty happy.
Here are some pictures I took while getting Anna dressed one day.

Anna has her first cold. It isn't fun when your kid has the sniffles. Mom has had a cold since Tuesday and short of autoclaving herself has tried to keep Anna from getting it. Just when we thought we were home free, Anna woke up congested on Saturday. She's doing pretty well though. Getting her nose suctioned is the pits, but being sick isn't all bad- here she is enjoying being in Daddy and Mama's bed.
While not feeling well, Anna just wants to be held all the time.

Earlier this week, I took Anna out for probably the last warm, sunny day for awhile. It was short lived though- her little nose met her fist on an unfortunate nose-dive while playing on her stomach. She's got a set of lungs so we came back inside pronto.

10 weeks old today! Time goes by so quickly. Anna is starting to really enjoy her toys. She tries to hit the rattles on her bouncy seat and she likes to stare at any bright toys. She's much more aware of exactly where we are in the room and whether or not we are paying attention to her. That's a girl thing, I believe.
She likes to read books! She actually looks at the pages the whole time we read to her.
As she is becoming more coordinated, she is putting her fists up to her mouth all the time. Her thumb is usually under her fingers so she's not a thumbsucker, yet.
