And here's Marta, the birthday girl! It's nearly impossible to catch her smiling on camera now: she looks me in the eye and smiles, giggles, laughs, but when she sees the camera, she looks at it and never smiles - why would you smile to that weird gray thing hanging over you? She studies it, I guess, and it's really hard to distract her and somehow talk her into smiling.

Also, I don't think I've mentioned it here: Marta's vocabulary has three (sort of) words now - abu, aghu and avu. Abu is the first one, the one she uses most often. Sometimes it's even possible to have a little dialogue with her, using these three words!


  1. My, what big eyes you have! :-)

  2. Neeka, your baby is absolutely beautiful. She reminds me so much of my own daughter at that age. My 3 are all grown up now so I guess I'll have grandkids to look forward to.
