Although this is a blurry picture of Anna, I had to post it...the look on her face makes me so happy.
The way Anna randomly waves her hand or pats herself on the head, signaling me to sing "Goin' to Boston" or "I've Got the Rhythm in My Head," songs from our Wednesday morning music class.
The way Anna reaches up to the sky whenever I say "Guess What?," because she knows I'm going to say "I love you THIIIISSS much!" while reaching my hands up to the sky.
The way Anna giggles uncontrollably when I sniff her toes and say "Peeeeuuuu!" And the way she signs "Again!" while putting her toes up to my nose.
The way Anna's eyes light up, her hands and arms flap like a bird, and she grunts "Ooh, ooh, ooh" when she gets excited. She kinda sounds like Arsenio Hall.
The way Anna rests her head on my left shoulder for snuggles and tucks her left arm down by her side to get extra cozy. She's learned how much I love this and now knows it will delay can delay diaper changes by minutes, because I just can't get enough.
The way Anna signs "up," "please," and "help" with such intensity.
The way she sticks out her bottom lip for no reason at all, and the way her mouth hangs wide open whenever she's focused.
The way she vigorously sways her hips back and forth whenever she hears music.
The way she carefully dabs at her own mouth and ours with her washcloth after meals. She likes to do it herself.
The way she claims "Ahhh-oowww!" (uh-oh) anytime something falls on the floor.
The way she bends her thumb up and down in an attempt to copy my index finger when it signals "Come here."
