She creeps!

video

Here she is! She's been doing this for almost a month now. Today she pulled herself up on her toy basket. Everyday she shows me some aspect of our home that needs to be baby-proofed. And yes, that is Anne Murray playing in the background.

In the meantime. . .

We've tried a few times now to post a cute video of Evie creeping along. Can't figure out what's wrong with it, hence the recent wonky post. We'll have to settle for some adorable pictures of Evie while we try to figure this out.


Evie at Christmas.

Evie's first swim.
Just looking cute.

Evie is 5 months old today. . .which means we haven't bragged about her "advancedness" in like 2.5 months. What kind of parents are we? And where do I start?

For starters, she's rounded out quite nicely. With all her rolls, seeing her cute little neck is a rare occurrence. I often comment to her on how chubby she's getting. I've promised I'll never say anything like this to her when she is a teenager.

She rolled! A couple of weeks ago we took a trip to Toronto to show her off to friends and family. She rolled for her Great Grandma and Uncle Mike. It's really not a regular thing. She's only rolled three since then. . .but still, she rolled!

She is now sleeping in her crib. Mostly. She usually ends up in the bed with us by morning. . .but still.

About a month ago she was working on a tooth. It's an elusive little tooth because it has since disappeared. And yet, she still appears to be red-cheeked and fussy. I hear that baby teeth can move up and down before they take up permanent residence. I hope this tooth makes up it's mind soon.

Well, I guess that's the 5 month report. I promise more pictures soon!!

Evieisms

I feel like I haven't had a chance to actually share some of Evie's talents and milestones. . .

She is a fabulous pooper, and especially loves to poop the second she gets out of the bath.

She has terrible reflux, so she spits up a lot. This has been her greatest trial. Often we have to change her clothes up to 4 times before she goes to bed because of all the spitting. The poor girl is never without a bib. We just upped her medicine to something a little more heavy duty. . .let's hope it works.

She has very strong neck muscles and has from the beginning. As her mom, I feel it is my duty to admit that she is very advanced for her age.

When she sleeps she spreads out like a starfish.

She's a terrific smiler. She used to save her best smiles and even laughs for lamps. We're not sure what the deal is, but she stares at them for minutes at a time (on or off). But she has now taken to smiling at humans (especially her parents). This has been a turning point for me, because before this I think she thought that a robot was in charge of feeding, changing and cuddling, and therefore needed no recognition. I need the recognition!


In that last photo, she's sawing logs. Sometimes when I look at her, I can't believe she's ours.

6 weeks old

Evie will be 6 weeks old on Tuesday. She is growing too fast. Here she is on her blessing day.






Her dad said a special prayer just for her with the help of her two grandpas. She wore an antique dress that was a gift from her great-grandma (which she promptly pooped on after the blessing).
She looked lovely.

Here's our little family. One day I will be rid of the double chin.
