Bear pics and the birthday video

Filed under: baby's progress,photos,video — by Lauren on October 21st, 2008 @ 9:22 am

It took some negotiations with an unwilling subject (Anya, not the bear!), but I was finally able to get Anya’s two year bear picture taken this afternoon.  She wasn’t particularly interested in sitting still, but I still got a few cute shots.  Look how much she’s grown:

Two years old:

One year old:

Just born:

Here is a 5 minute video of some of the highlights from her birthday.  As you can see, she had a great time!

    I absolutely love Gymboree. Nick did it when he was a baby but none of the other kids had the chance too.

    Love the bear pics and her birthday cake. She looks like she had a fabulous time.

    Thanks, Erica! We did classes at Gymboree from the time Anya was 3 1/2 months old until the beginning of the summer, but then we decided she was ready for something else. She was so excited to be back there again!

    Anya is so cute…and she sounds like a pleasure to be around. We celebrated my daughter’s 2nd birthday on the 19th as well.
    If you don’t mind me asking, do you have any good tips on potty training? I’m in the process of starting potty training my daughter and it seemed like it went pretty smoothly for you.
    Congrats on baby #2. I wish you the best.

    Thanks. Susan

    Thanks, Susan! Happy birthday to your daughter as well. I will send you an email with some things that worked for Anya.
