20 months old

Sasha is 20 months old today!  Here he is doing his favorite activity -- playing the guitar and singing.  He practices so much that sometimes he gets a bit tired and needs to lie down to continue playing.

His vocabulary now includes:
da -  Russian yes
yeah -- English yes
bo -- ball
oh-dah -- depending on the context can either mean "all done" or "tuda" (Russian for there)
av-av -- dog
boo -- book

First steps

Sasha hit the ground running in 2012.  At Babulya and Dedulya's house on January 1, 2012 he took his first real steps without holding onto anything.  Sometimes he needed to carry a ball for moral support, but walking was definitely becoming more convenient than crawling.
