One Year Photos

I finally took Aashini's one year pictures :) The top one is one of my favorites :) You probably don't remember, but this is the exact same dress (just a different size) that she wore for her one month pictures :) I'll post some more pictures later of her "before & after" and her bear pictures... but for now, here are her one year pics!
This picture makes me laugh!
Now we can say: "How big is Aashini?" or "Jai Masih ki" (pretty much means "Praise the Lord") and she'll raise both of her hands in the air. That's what she's doing in this picture (but she's still holding onto the tree :))
Showing off a few of her teeth!
So here is the South Asian portion of our blog...
One of our friends in M-town made Aashini two sweaters when she was born - one to wear then and one to wear around her first birthday... so we took some pics in it to send them :)
She put a lot of work into this sweater. It even has a cute bow in the back.
The family we used to live with in M-town (the Kumars) gave us this dress (below) for Aashini to wear on her first birthday. First birthdays are a HUGE big deal in South Asia (you can see pics from our SA friend's daughter's first Birthday here: South Asian Birthday Party (in America) ) So... here is the dress!
This is her "ballerina picture" - she was actually trying to climb this tree :) It's funny because most of the time her hair looks blonde but this picture it looks so brown :)
I think she felt like a little princess :) You can tell she's teething again - she has her finger in her mouth for most of the pcitures :)
