Wow it has been such a long time since I have posted anything. I have thought of about 20 posts in my head during the day and then by the time I am able to get to the computer at night I am just beat. I have a lot to catch up on but for now some pictures from today...
She did it! Anika was happy and into getting her picture taken at the studio. We have tried 3 times before and she was always terrified. They took 99 different shots and boy was it hard to choose. We finally have our yearly picture that we take every August around Alex's family day. This year we are a bit late but I think it turned out great. I wanted to post a few of my favorite shots.
The last few weeks have been really busy. Shortly after our visit with our Guatemama friends Jens parents came to visit. It was the first time they had the chance to see Anika making it a special visit. During the two weeks they were here. Hurricane Ike or what was left of it blew through and left our area largely without power. We were lucky and were only without for a few hours but just a few streets over many were out for over a week! Alex's school was in the hard hit area and he had an unexpected week off of school. Things are getting back to normal now. Anika is starting to talk more and now is into climbing everything that she can. I will post more often I hope and thanks for still checking in on us.
