Evie is 10 months and one week old; Eric is 2 and a half years old!

Evie took one step on Jan 27. Then she took one step in the morning of the 28 and another step in the evening. On February 3 she took 2 steps! And on Feb 4 she started drinking out of a sippy cup without any help!

Eric loves McDonald's play place! I got into the actual structure to take this picture, it was really worth the sore knees and elbows, this is such a perfect shot!

At school there is a dental van. Eric's teacher encouraged everyone to visit, so we did. Eric got to look all around and sit in the big reclining dental chair. We didn't have the dentist look at his teeth. This was just a visit to sort of understand what the dentist is all about. The dentist gave Eric a sticker and I bought him a new toothbrush. Then we came home and had a healthy snack!

Little miss is definately a brownie, lol!

Thank you Gert and Martin for this super cute outfit!!! It matches her cupcake shoes!

Here's our happy girl crawling along, she is a speed demon!

Thank you Pat for this super darling outfit!

Evie got to sit in the big girl bathtub to have her bath! Usually she is in the baby bathtub, but Dada said she was ready to be a big girl. Eric can't wait until he can splash around with Evie in the bathtub!

Evie is 10 months old; Eric is 2 and a half years old!

I can't believe Evie is 10 months old already!!!!!

Evie is standing without holding on, for longer and longer periods of time. She even tries to take a step but hasn't been able to just yet - VERY soon she will be walking all over the place and giving Eric a run for his money, lol!

This isn't the best picture, but you can clearly see her standing on her own!

Another not-so-great pic, but I thought her little babooska was so cute, lol!

Through the tunnel!

Time to take Bailey for a walk! Is that the cutest coat or what?

Thank you for the super cute Robeez Gramma Linda! Evie loves shoes!

I had a wonderful birthday! Scott took the week off from work and we had quality family bonding time and ate a lot of yummy food! Evie is wearing a cupcake on her shirt to celebrate, lol!

Here's just one of the delicious treats I got for my birthday!

Kellie took me out for a super yummy lunch!

Scott came to school! Eric and Evie had a lot of fun showing Dada all around!

We even got a pic of me with the kids at school!!! :)

Evie is 9 months and four weeks old; Eric is 2 and a half years old!

My friend Kellie bought Eric a DVD on learning the alphabet (a LeapFrog DVD her kids watched and loved and learned a lot from). Eric has watched it 3 times and can already say each letter sound!!!

Evie has been pulling up on toys and furniture for about 4 weeks and has been standing on her own for about 2 weeks for very short periods of time. I keep trying to get a picture, but perhaps I will be able to when she can keep her balance for a bit longer. :)

Eric has stopped calling Evie "L'il Ma" and has started calling her "Eeee." If I prompt him several times in a row he will try to say "Evie" but it sounds more like "Eee Eee"

Scott was awarded Employee Of The Year!!!!! WOO HOO!!!!!

We are working hard on the alphabet these days. "E" is for ERIC!!!

and "M" is for MOOK!

This is Eric's "smile" when I tell him I am taking his pic and want him to smile, lol! (you can see it in the above pic of the elephants too)

A lady at school gave us her double stroller, she said she didn't need it anymore. Scott spent 2 days cleaning it up (cuz it was pretty gross) and now it looks awesome! When I first put Evie in it, she did her little happy dance, lol!

She is on her way, check out that smile as she is in mid-crawl!

I got this sippy cup for Evie before she was born, she is finally old enough to use it now! :)

A metallic pink butterfly in her hair, metallic pink flowers on her leggings and a super cute pink dress! This girl is stylin'!

Evie is 9 months and three weeks old; Eric is 2 and a half years old!

Eric and Dada the day after xmas playing at the park next to our house.

I gave Evie my doll, Maiandra. However, Eric seems much more interested. He takes such good care of her, strokes her hair, reads her stories, feeds her, cleans her face, reads her a good night story, and tucks her in.

We went to this park near Dada's work, Eric just can't get enuf of parks!

swinging is now fun (it used to be very boring)

Dada likes the park too, lol!

going up

going down

There's just not enough Dada to go around, lol!

Thank you Susie for the beautiful hand made blanket for Evie, she loves it!!!

"There's a what on my shirt?"

Her crawling is getting SO fast!

Another vid of Evie crawling - she is doing so well!!!

A vid of Evie's happy dance. There is no sound, but I am asking her repeatedly if she is a happy girl and her reply is her happy head-shaking dance, lol! too cute!

Evie is 9 months and two weeks old; Eric is 2 and a half years old!

Eric has started singing. He has been doing his own rendition of 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' which goes something like,
"ma da, ma da, ma da, ma;
ma da, ma da, ma da, ma;
ma da ma da mumble mumble"
i think he can't remember the rest of the song, lol!

Silly Dada put this bandana on her head. I'm not sure if he was going for 'biker babe' or 'house cleaning hair,' LOL!

Look at her cute little Disney Aristocats shirt with kitty Marie and her jeans with all the embroidery and sparkles - they help cut down on the rug-burned knees too from all the crawling Miss Evie is doing these days! :)

Evie got her 9 month shots :( her bandaid had dinosaurs riding skateboards, Eric thought it was pretty cool, lol. Evie's 9 month stats are 18.10 pounds, 47 cm head, 27.75 inches tall.

Evie says, "OMG, that's the cutest baby girl I've ever seen, I'm going to kiss her!"

She was right, that IS the cutest baby girl EVER!!!

With the money I have made selling my digital scrapbooking supplies, I bought Evie this disney princess toy organizer. She really seems to like it!

Look at how cute they are, playing peek-a-boo together!!!

My friend Lori came to visit from Arizona. We haven't seen each other since high school! We both married high school boys and have children now and we are friends on facebook so we can chat all the time. :)

When Lori visited, we went to McDonald's because they have an indoor play place. This was Evie and Eric's first time at McDonalds. Evie was too little to play in the indoor play place, so she sat with me and watched.

Eric was not too little and he had a BLAST!

This play place was 3 stories tall and Eric went all the way to the top floor! Then he went over to the slide and do you think he slid down? of course not, he RAN down! My heart jumped into my throat, lol!

I got Eric a sleep number toddler pillow for Christmas. He really seems to like it. This is the first time he has ever shown interest in wanting to sleep in bed like a grown up, with his head on a pillow at the head of the bed and his feet at the foot of the bed and the blanket covering him. Why is it SO cute when little kids do stuff like grown ups?
