Evie is 4 months old; Eric is 2 years old!

Evie is now 4 months old!!! She has rolled over a few times, but none that I have been able to get on tape :( She is doing great with tummy time and can hold her own head up pretty well now. She can lock her knees and 'stand' if you hold the top portion of her steady. She is laughing at me now when I play with her. She watches EVERYTHING Eric does and is very interested in his every movement. She loves the ceiling fan; anytime we are in the livingroom she will move her head around until she can see it, even if it isn't turned on, lol!


Evie ate her first big girl food on July 25th! She had rice cereal mixed with breast milk and really seemed to enjoy it! Now my question is, how do I feed both kiddos at the same time?!?


I love it when dresses come with the matching kick pants/bloomers, its just so cute!


This dress has the kick pants too. The dress says, "Mommy's Sunshine"


I love the little topiaries on this outfit! It's hard to see, but there are 3 topiaries, the first one has just one hedge, the second has 2 and the third has 3, so under each topiary it says One, Two, Three. Really adorable!!!


Pink flowers everywhere and another cute hat!


Little blue flowers are cute too!


Everytime I put a blanket down for Evie, Eric has to run over and lay down on it, he needs to make sure he isn't missing out on anything! He lies down next to Evie and pets her hair and sometimes talks to her. She very much prefers this. :)


Look at the little tiny bite marks in his quesadilla, SO CUTE!!!


Eric has been showing a lot of interest in coloring lately, so we did a triptych of sorts. The first paper shows that yellow (on the left side) and red (on the right side) make orange (in the middle). I won't bore you by explaining them all, but Eric is standing there waving to me as I take the pic, he was super excited to have his artwork displayed so prominantly and just at his height!


How cute is this???


Dada turned the sprinklers on in the backyard and Eric had a blast running thru them, lol!


After the sprinklers it was time to get to work!


Dada was so happy Eric's hair is long enuf for the bathtub mohawk, lol! (you can click on this pic to see a bigger size)


The boy loves trains! (you can click on this pic to see a bigger size)

Evie is 3 months and three weeks old; Eric is 2 years old!

This week Eric said Moma and actually meant ME!!! He knows my name is Moma, if you ask him where Moma is he will point to me and say, "there she is" but he has never called me Moma until this week! I am so excited!!!


Eric always looks thru Dada's pockets, but now he has pockets of his own to look thru! (yesterday Scott said he saw Eric just standing in the livingroom with his hand in his pocket exactly the way Dada does it!)


Eric got his first helicopter!


We all know how much Eric loves his water table, so Scott bought him some water toys that are tiny little circles which 'grow' in the water to become sponge animals, what fun! Here you can see the red monkey and the green emu.


And besides the water table, bath time is the next most fun activity! This boy is a fish!


This is colored hair gel. It smells wonderful, teaches Eric about colors and textures, lets Eric practice fine and gross motor skills, and is super fun all at the same time!


Show me the colors on your hand! ooooooh!


Let's see what interesting art you have created! what a beautiful masterpiece!


Eric is my little helper. Here, he is helping with the groceries. He is able to pick up this entire pack of soda and take it from the living room all the way to the kitchen! (keep in mind, he only weighs 30 pounds and this soda is probably upwards of 15!) I like the final picture where he looks as tho he has beaten the soda and put one foot on it to show victory!


We have been very fortunate to have people buying or giving us clothes for Evie. This is one of the very few outfits I was able to pick out for her. I adore the pink and brown with swirls and glitter, and a few little hearts here and there, and a little leopard print!


Someone has discovered her toes!


Our littlest Love Bug


It's hard to see, but these jammies have a baby giraff and a moma giraff on the side, so cute!


Amongst the flowers and butterflies, you can find the words "pretty, pretty." Evie has started also discovered her fingers.


Pink with polka dots and flowers - super cute!

Evie is 3 months and two weeks old; Eric is 2 years old!


One last 4th of July pic, her outfit says, "Baby's First Fourth"


Dada's girl


Pink satin ribbon and diamonds, can you say, "BLING!"


Evie naped in her big girl crib for the first time on Saturday!


Mook has taken over Bailey's bed!!! Poor Bailey!


Eric fingerpainted for the first time on the 8th! He painted with each finger on his left hand, switching to a clean finger periodically. Then when all the left-handed fingers were dirty, he switched over to his right hand and used all those fingers, and when those were dirty you can see in the video below, he just jumped right in and used both hands!


He's not wearing a shirt so he can get right into the bath without getting paint on anything else!


Eric's finished masterpiece now hangs on his bedroom door!

Evie is 3 months and one week old; Eric is 2 years old!

Happy Independence Day!!!

On June 30, Evie rolled all the way over to the right from back to tummy! She is now grabbing her feet too; and has even started working on rolling to the left!

Eric is getting really good at taking his pants and diaper off, but not so good at putting them back on, lol. Needless to say, his wardrobe now mostly consists of overalls!


Happy Fourth!


Eric just wasn't into having his picture taken.


Evie, on the other hand, was much more agreeable.






Bear-Footed Jams! (not 'bare' footed, lol! ok, ok, English Major humor is not funny to anyone but English Majors, I get it... sorry!)


Fresh from the bath in her stylin' robe!


Pretty in Pink


Red hearts, white hearts, pink hearts... sweet heart!




The boy loves his dog!


Sorry I took it sideways and that there is no sound :(
