1 Year Pictures

We haven’t put up pictures in a while, so I thought I’d post the portraits we had done today. We took Anya to get her official 1 year portraits done at Target a few weeks ago, but they charge to email you the pictures and we opted not to pay for that. At some point I’ll ask my mom to scan in the one we purchased so I can post it, but since I haven’t even cut them up yet it might be a while. Today I took her to Kiddie Kandids to get her free birthday 8×10, since the coupon expired tomorrow. I don’t think we’ll do pictures again until she’s at least 18 months, if that. She really doesn’t like having her picture taken anymore. It takes her too long to warm up to the photographer, and even though she didn’t cry this time, she really didn’t want to smile. Here are the six poses we kept from the session; we chose the first one for our print:

Her hair is getting a little out of control, don’t you think? The top layers are pretty long, but there’s another layer underneath that’s still kind of short. I don’t know what to do about it, since the easy solution would be to give her bangs but I’d like to grow her hair out past that point. It’s getting hard for her to see, though. I’ve tried brushing it back, but like Anya, it’s stubborn and only wants to go in its own direction. Poor kid, I hoped she’d inherit easier to manage hair than her mom.

Oh, and on a totally unrelated note, she started saying “Mommy” and “Daddy” today instead of “Mama” and “Dada” – not every time, but sometimes – and her new favorite animal sound is “Gobble, gobble” like a turkey. I haven’t taken any video since her birthday; I’ve got to either do something with the party footage or just go buy a new tape.

    Lex and Lauren,

    Anya is too cute! Tell Anya that her daddy is a funny guy and can make everyone laugh espicallly the Guthrie Gang.

    Cute pictures.
    Daisy started saying “Mommy” instead of “Mama” recently too. Well, she goes back and forth now. Ben is still “Dada” though. And Rory is still “Rora.”

    Thanks! The next day, she started calling us “Mommy” and “Daddy” exclusively. Talk about fast turnaround! She still refers to many other people by repeating syllables, though, especially if they have names with two or more syllables. My brother Brian is “Bribri” and my sister Melanie is “Melmel” for example.
