This past week was full of Grove City folk. One of Chris' friends from GC just returned from Turkey and met Anna for the first time.

Saturday night was a Grove City wedding. Anna had a great time with a butter packet, a water glass and lots of attention.

More pictures in the pool. These pictures don't show it too well, but this was the day Anna got her first fat lip, complimentary from the dining room floor. =(

This video is a few weeks old, but here's Anna wantin' a revolution.
Well it has been busy...But here are pictures. Between the beach, bath and pool, Anna is having a pruney summer.
The highlight of this month- MAMA! She is saying it, finally! Also saying "Hi" and sometimes "hey!"
The other day, she was standing up in the pool and every time a car went by, she raised her arm straight up and hailed them, "hey!"

Reading about caterpillars and such...

A couple nights ago, Anna was quiet as a mouse. Chris found her in the kitchen:

Extreme Makeover: Closet Edition.

Worth his weight in gold. Thanks honey. =)
We now have use of all closets in the house, which means the last of the boxes are finally unpacked! I am still hemming and hawing about where to hang the clock, put the pictures though. It will be done soon. And then you can have pictures, Mom.
Anna is doing great! Good news- we kicked the pacifier this weekend. Cold turkey. A tough road to hoe, but not as bad as we thought we were in for. Thursday was borderline miserable, Friday was markedly better, and Saturday on was like she never had one. Whew! Boy was I dreading it, but it's done and she still likes us.
Another tooth popped up! I guess she's trying to make good all our excuses for her teething. She's still constantly chewing on her fingers and rubber ducks so I think a couple more are waiting in the wings.
And Anna has fully mastered the ability to unpack. She empties out her bottom two drawers, oh at least ten times a day. (Why do I bother putting the contents back in?) Today she pulled a couple pairs of shorts out of Chris' dresser and emptied the laundry hamper as far as she could reach in. It's funny to watch her methodically take something out, look at it, throw it down and reach for the next.
Okay, a couple pictures of Anna. I haven't taken too many lately, but I'll work on that.
Anna and her surrogate big sister Dem.

They are all eating graham crackers.

Going away bbq for Lairs; Anna helping herself:

Thanks for my swing, Grandmom!
