We saw a deer outside our house yesterday morning. Evie and I looked for it again today! No luck! It was so chilly this morning so we stayed inside and played. After Evie's nap, we went to Gymboree. It was good to see her friends. Some of the same people are beginning to come each week which makes it so much more fun. Evie really likes her friends Annie and Asher. They had a scarf center with tons of colorful scarves. Evie was so thrilled to play with her friends in the scarves.
We came home for lunch. Evie has decided that black beans are not so bad if she can use her fork to eat them. One of our neighbors brought us delicious chocolate chip cookies. She was really friendly and thrilled my little heart with homemade cookies. We were starting to wonder if we were ever going to meet any of the neighbors. We have met three now so that's a pretty good start. Larger lots make it harder to meet the neighbors but I LOVE not being so close to everyone!
I had to wake Evie up to go meet our friend Rebecca for coffee. These shots were taken when I was trying to wake her up - it worked like a charm. She heard the click-click and her little eyes popped right open ready for our next adventure.
I NEVER wake Evie up because it takes so much energy to get her to sleep but this was a special occasion. Rebecca has a brand-new baby so that was so fun to meet Maddie. She is beautiful and had the most gorgeous baby blanket. Courtney, it looked like the bib you made for Evie. We had a nice time visiting. Evie destroyed the place with her Cheez-its. It was a lot easier to take her places when she was little. HA - I would not have said that back then but now she is mobile and I have to bring a bag of tricks to occupy my sweet girl.
Daddy was here when we got home. Evie was so excited to see him and we went on a walk. I think Evie likes the cold, crisp air. We tried to hang a few pictures but could not really get it together with Evie following us around. She tries to climb the stairs, play in the toilet and gets into everything. Oh well, we will get the pictures up one day but it is way more fun to play with Evie.
Evie and I decided to cook dinner since picture hanging was not going too well. Evie thinks tilapia, broccoli and macaroni and cheese is a really yummy combination! She ate everything and then had some applesauce for dessert. What a big girl!
Happy Birthday, Alicia! I am so glad that I had a chance to chat with you this morning. Hope your day was special and you enjoyed spending time with your mom. What a treat!
Gotta go watch Monday Night Football with Carl but it will be a little sweeter with some cookies and milk.
