Anna loves her kitties. We used to worry how Jack, our grumpy cat, would do around a baby. It turns out, he's really good! If Anna gets too close, Jack might hiss, but then he runs away. He doesn't mess around. It's clear he doesn't like her (just add Anna's name to the list), so he removes himself from the situation. What a good, grumpy cat.
Ollie is a different story. Ollie is stubborn. He doesn't like to lose. If he's comfortable lounging somewhere, he won't budge for anyone or anything (except food). So when Anna's around, he'll stay put and taunt her however he can. Usually with his tail.
Anna tries to make friends with him, and she's actually pretty gentle. But he just doesn't want to play fair.
In the end, her stuffed kitty is the only cat that's always there for her.

Thanksgiving took us to Missouri. It was fun to see family, some of which had never met Anna. Anna spent no time at all making herself at home and becoming the center of attention (even if she wasn't trying).
Since we were in the town that I grew up in, Anna finally got to meet my good friend Gina, whom I've known since kindergarten, and her two girls. Gina and I had a great time catching up, and the girls had a fun time playing together.

For Anna's first birthday, we went to the aquarium! We started the day opening a couple presents from friends, then it was off to our grand adventure.
The aquarium was really neat, and the fish were so cool to look at. Anna loved it.
After lunch we saw the dolphin show!
The we saw the dolphins below water and the beluga whale and her calf. The light was really low and we couldn't use a flash (the fish didn't have sunglasses); we could have used Christina's tripod.
Once we got home, it was time for cake and presents!
After playing with some new toys, it was time for bed. Whew! What a big day!
