We found these pictures of Caesar and I and discovered we had the same toy! :) also, Evie is the perfect mix of the two of us. Surprise, surprise.
These are at about 6 in the morning....she's so happy when she first wakes up, she just stretches out her little legs and smiles at us. Until she gets annoyed with her diaper, and the day begins.
This is what I see out the bedroom window from where I usually sit on the bed with Evie...our backyard is like a jungle, and I love these pink flowers...does anyone know what they're called?
When Evie woke up at sunrise a few days ago, I took some pictures because it was so bright and pretty outside. The photos don't quite show how orangey-pink the sky was, but it was beautiful. I see more and more sunrises lately. Thanks for the wake up call, Evie!
It has begun. Splashing in the bathtub. She used to just sit there all mellow, but now she throws all her energy into flailing all her little limbs.

We love the park...I think maybe on Caesar's next day off we should take a blaket for Evie to lay on under a tree. She loves looking at her leafy branches and we have never taken her out of the sling/stroller at the park, so I think she would like it.

Yes. September got herself stuck in a tree. This is why she is an indoor cat.

This little giraffe plays "Talk to the Animals" from Dr. Doolittle (the ACTUAL movie, not that one with Eddie Murphy) in pretty music box music. It was Josh's when he was a baby and now Evie loves it.

Smiling at that cute baby in the mirror.

She generally stops smiling when she sees the camera (of course), but now she has discovered that there is a screen on the back of it....she likes screens. (Again, of course)

Happy Father's Day

So I realized last week I didn't have very many pictures...I may have overcompensated this time :)
When she starts putting her hands to her face, you know she is getting ready for a nap.
Some fuzzy smiles in the mirror.
Also a bit fuzzy, but such a sweet face...that smile was for her daddy of course.
Her bouncy chair has this banana toy and when you pull on it it makes monkey sounds...she did it all by herself on Sunday morning!
...I accidentally left the flash on...oops.
The quilt top that I started when I was pregnant is finally done! And the fabric I needed for the backing just came this morning, so maybe next week I'll have a finished quilt to share.
Tummy time! She generally loves it when we put her on her belly, but a couple days ago when my mom tried to, Evie made a face and rolled to her back! She'd never rolled herself before :)
I was eating my lunch while Evie napped and I looked up to see slightly opening eyes...."please let me finish my lunch, little girl..." (She did.)

My brother's birthday is this week, so I made these cruffles (cake truffles) to send him. (I'm pretty sure he doesn't read this, but if he does, oops, sorry Mark...and Happy Birthday!)
This is how we watch the A's game at our house...
Our kitties September and Artemis.
It seems that Evie's hand is delicious. Also, fun fact; that top picture is awfully similar to Caesar's "are you crazy?!" face. Huh.
She sleeps so much longer when someone is cuddling her.
I love this drooly face. Certain expressions she makes often look like one or the other of us, but her smile is all her own. I love it.
I also made this Vegan Blueberry Almond Cake...SO good with a cup of tea. It's gone now :(
Me and my dad when I was about 4 months; Evie and her dad when she is about 3.5 months. Same stripey blue jumper. Same squishy cheeks.
I just love this picture because I almost got her little nose wrinkle that she does for a second when she favorite.
We went to Scandia for Father's Day, where Caesar enjoyed bumper boats and batting cages with his brothers. Then we got Chipotle and ice cream cones....we should definitely make it a yearly tradition.

Three Months Old


Big girl sitting up all by herself (ish) for her three month picture.

I made this bunny for her "birthday"....I'm so happy with how it came out.

I think she looks like Caesar here.

Just hanging out on the couch with our other baby.

Footie pajamas! I love these...they're still a little big for her but she's so cuddly in them.

Dark ipad photo but SO cute anyway. :)

And another one cause I just can't resist....she is basically always trying to eat her hands now....drool everywhere. And she's so good at sitting up now. She tries so hard!

Baby Bobble-Head


Naked baby! She tries to hold her head up almost all the time now, which is so cute with her little head bobbing everywhere, trying to see everything.
Look what I did to her hair! I know. I KNOW. Little alfalfa baby.
Megan and I took an aerial silks class. It was such a blast. Obviously we can't do tons yet and my arms were SO sore, but I would love to keep doing it.
Evie's first trip to the mall!
Josh graduated on Saturday. It was horribly hot, so of course I took the opportunity to make use of tiny sunglasses.
We hung out on the grass for most of the ceremony so we could keep out of the sun. Evie laid on a blanket on the grass looking up at leaves of course. She was quite the happy camper. Till I pulled out the camera.

AW!!! That's Josh and his friend-since-they-were-tiny-and-adorable, Chad. (Actually, he's my friend Lauren's little brother too.) Done with high school and off to college! Congratulations guys!

So Evie had her first laugh. It was completely precious and I accidentally got it recorded! Not sure how to post video on here, but it's on my Facebook. Also, she is starting to grab things. Which is so cute when you're holding her and she's clutching your shirt, but less cute when it's your hair. (I'll be rocking a ponytail for the next couple years.)
