Baby girl is all grown up . . .

Evie is not a baby anymore. She even looks like a big girl. Here are few things that she is up to these days. She loves to burrow into small spaces like behind the trashcan or ottoman. Climbing is one of her new discoveries. She even hoists her sweet little legs to get into the tub or her toy basket. Evie is talking more and we can understand some of her language. She says go, bye-bye, Mama, Dada and touchdown with the appropriate motions. I just love to hear her voice but once the novelty wears off it may get a little tiring. We loved having the house to ourselves this morning for the first time in over two weeks. It was so nice to take our time getting ready this morning without having to prepare for service providers.

I had to wake Evie up from her morning nap because she was still sleeping at 11. She must have been tired! We played and organized some things around the house. I was changing the shower curtain and put the acorn shower rings on the ground - the acorn shape is not my taste. Evie must not have liked them either because she promptly dumped them into the toilet. I am sure that will not be the last thing that goes in there. We might need some toilet locks since she is fascinated by them.

Evie decided that she would rather play during naptime. She had all kinds of games going on in her crib and was happy as a lark. It was so funny to watch her on the monitor. After 1.5 hours of playtime, I went to get her. She was so happy to see me. I love how she pats my back when she gets picked up out of the crib. Evie is really good for our self-esteem! Everything we do is wonderful to her but that will surely change.

We went to run a few errands this afternoon. Evie loves being out and about. We came home to play. She was pushing her grocery cart all over the place. Apparently, it's really fun to push the cart in and out of the folding doors. She has been lining her Chick-fil-A sauces up in the kitchen again. Be sure to watch the State of the Union address - whether you agree with the politics or not - it's important to be an informed citizen. I would not trade my dream job to be President. Would you?


  1. Something tells me that my Babycakes & your Evie would have A LOT of fun together (flushing things down the potty). We are fascinated by all things "gross" in our house. ;)

  2. Jennifer,
    Autumn enjoys the toilet too (she sees me rinsing cloth dipes in it and must think that it is a fun place to play b/c of that, or perhaps just b/c it's water!) Anyway, so far, just keeping the lid down has been enough of a deterrent for her. We haven't yet invested in the locks.
    Isn't this your favorite age? Although, every age has been my 'favorite!' And I keep thinking, "No, THIS is my favorite age/stage that she's been through."

  3. Evie is so cute! I love that these girls grow up and develop cute little personalities! It is amazing to watch and see how their little brains work and watch them do all the funny things that little ones do. But, at the same time, it makes me sad that they grow up so fast.
