Oregon Trip

Just chillin in the swing Grandma and Grandad got for her birthday
We went up to Portland to visit Mark last weekend...we stopped in Ashland to spend the night on the way up, but drove back down all in one day. SO much driving. Evie's longest road trip yet, for sure. But she did a great job being patient and we had fun while we were up there seeing her Uncle.
She woke up when we got to Ashland at was SUPER fun getting her back to sleep...
I wedged Caesar's phone between the headrests for part of the trip. Yay for Netflix!
Mark actually lives in Beaverton, a suburb of Portland, and we found this BEAUTIFUL yarn store....walked around in circles there for quite a while before settling on what to get. We also went to Powell's Books where Evie chose The Fluffy Duckling book and made friends with a little boy.
Playing peek a boo in the car
We stopped in Redding on the way back for dinner and to stretch at Barnes and Noble. Evie had a gift card from her cousin Anthony and her Aunt Thuan and Uncle Marco and she picked out a cute cloth book called Good Night Teddy. Has a little bear to tuck in bed. That didn't use the whole card so we also got her this little light up octopus that casts stars on the ceiling. It uses batteries and the buttons are very simple so we showed her how to turn it on and off herself, which makes her very pleased.
One year old doctors appointment. Shots and everything :(
Oh, and she is now 27 inches tall, and 19 lbs.

My mom got a bread machine so we made a pizza a few days ago....Evie loved it

Watching Cali catch the frisbee
Me and Evie were watching Grandad throw the frisbee and I mentioned how I had heard somewhere that you have a one in 10,000 chance of finding a four leaf clover. He started telling me about how you can actually buy seeds now that only grow four leaf clovers, and literally while he was talking I looked down and found one.
We took Evie to this pond where she saw real ducks for the first time...very exciting. And geese too!
We spotted a dove in the willow tree

Turned around for two seconds and she built this tower all by herself...first one!

Also, she signed thank you, and please....she knows a lot of signs now, and understands pretty much all of what we say. When she is trying to communicate something but doesn't know how she just runs through all her signs one after another, milk, more, all done, please, thanks, yay. She is just going to start chatting away one of these days, full sentences and all.
