  1. Hi! I'm stopping by from Natural Parents Network :)
    I have to say, I am reallllllllly creeped out by spiders! BUT, how amazing is that shot of yours as a baby?? I try hard to appreciate all beings and this post definitely makes it easier to appreciate these guys!
    Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! We now have 8 arachnid pets and Anansi is the one I've had the longest. It is so crazy to look back to that time compared to now! I know there is no point of reference in the newer pic, but she practically fills my hand now!

  3. Wow, you've had her since she was a baby? What a change! I love the name Anansi. I had to look up what the name meant and read some stories. :) Usually I am scared by spiders, but there's something about her in that top pic that just looks so glorious — beautiful coloring and very lush. Glad you love your arachnids!
