Happy 15 Months!

Anastyn has been a busy little girl lately. It seems she is picking up new things daily. She is trying more and more to form her words. She tries to repeat almost everything we say, in her own little way of course. She has also started singing at random times. It might be my favorite thing yet. She was in her high chair the other night just singing away. She does it kind of soft and sweetly. I don't know what she is singing, but it is beautiful! I will have to try to catch her on camera.

A few words that she says consistently:
hot - ot
ball- bah
hi- she says this very sweet and drawn out
Ana- as in Anastyn
uh-oh - she finally got that oh in there. I love hearing her say it, because she exaggerates the o by making her lips really round. Absolutely adorable!
dog- dah
amen- ah nah
papa- she has said this once
bath- bah (yes, it sounds just like ball, but she says it when we are going to take a bath)
I think she has started saying that- she points to things a lot and says "dat". I am not 100%, but that is what I have decided.
I also think I have gotten her to say plane a few times.
There are probably some that I am forgetting, but you get the gist.

Anastyn with her fabulous cousins! She looks like their sister, doesn't she? She adores her cousins and she is no longer the baby! She thinks she can play with the big girls now!

She has 3 more teeth. Her upper incisors on both sides and on lower incisor on the left. I think her teething has affected her appetite a little. But she is still a pretty good eater, for the most part. She has really started playing with her toys a lot more lately. She loves to play with all of them. She has started loving on her baby dolls as well. If I start singing "Sweet, sweet, baby..." she will put her little baby on her shoulder and pat its back and rock it. It is very sweet. She also LOVES her bath. She doesn't like to sit down in it. But she loves to play with her ducks and basketballs, and she likes to have water dumped on her hands, arms, and body. She is much better when it comes to washing her hair as well. She loves to splash and fill up cups and dump them out.
Details seem to be escaping me today, but mainly Anastyn is just one happy girl. She has such a personality and so many expressions to go with it. She is very stubborn... and not so happy when she doesn't get EXACTLY what she was wanting... and yes, SHE KNOWS. She is so hard to fool with distractions! She goes to bed very well. She is very in love with her little piggy that she sleeps with. Sometimes, I think she goes down just so she can hold it and suck her little thumb. Definitely an addiction! She likes pointing out babies and children, waving at passing cars and airplanes over head.
Great-grandma Del letting Anastyn steal a drink from her straw.

Love a girl in boots! She had a lot of fun walking around in these. These are my new favorite item in her wardrobe.

Another pic with her "big sisters." I hope they always get along this well. They are really so sweet to her and she absolutely loves their attention.
Hopefully, I will get a post up soon about our camping trip from Labor Day. And a few pictures from our trip to see baby Lincoln and Skylar's birthday. Don't hold your breath though, it could be another week...or two...or three... :)

I can't believe she is already 15 months old! She's growing up too fast, but each stage is so much fun! I wish we could see her more. I'm sure she and the girls will have fun at the fall festival with mom:( I'm so sad I won't be there, take LOTS of pictures for me.
