A rare sighting

Since I'm so often the one taking pictures, Peter snapped one of me to prove to Anya Rashi in later years that I did, in fact, exist. :o)

Our other rare sighting was of Anya Rashi in the tub! Sorry, no photo of that one, since she insisted on standing the entire time. Thank heaven for non-skid bathtub mats! A little explanation: since we met her, she's been terrified of running water and the bathtub. Even having me in with her didn't help . . . so we've been sponge-bathing her, washing her hair in the sink, sitting in an empty tub, and enlisting Aaron and Nathan to demonstrate that bathtime can be fun. (Thank you, big brothers.)

All our efforts finally paid off yesterday, when she looked like she wanted to go in the tub as I ran the water -- so in she went! Aaaah -- just-bathed-baby is one of my favorite scents in the world. What a brave little girl!
