I haven't posted a video for a while. This is Jaan, reading to Raia. It's too bad our camera won't go for more than 30 seconds with video. Jaan can't get through the whole book fast enough. I got a bunch of quick clips, but I can't tell which one is best.
Asya turned 10 months old yesterday! That seems old. At nine months, I feel like we're getting close to that first birthday; by ten months, they're just old. Her latest accomplishment is that she can climb right up to the top of the (big!) slide. She has two teeth now, and eats everything in sight. I tried to get a photo to show her teeth yesterday, but when I looked at it just now, I couldn't see anything. This photo of Raia in the archives could be Asya, except that Asya doesn't have anything on the top yet. Asya really doesn't look too much like Raia in other photos, but that one is just about identical. Since the tooth photo didn't turn out, here's another cute one from a recent village visit. She was enjoying the raspberries and apricots.
I might be posting less than usual for a little while here. Our friends, the Sullivans, just arrived from Moscow. They'll be here for two weeks, and I am going to enjoy every minute of the visit!
