Anneli is 8 1/2 months old and growing in personality everyday. Each day I see her try something new. Yesterday we were spending the day at my sisters and she found a toy cow to play with. I told her that the cow says "moo". Well to my surprise Anneli said "moo" back. She is also very active and is climbing on everything. At this point she doesn't have much fear of falling, which I find kind of scary. I have to hold myself back at times while she explores and learns about gravity on her own. We have such fun together! It is a joy to be a mom!
