Evie @ 8 monthsMonday, May 27, 2013
She learned to clap her hands, and acts so proud of herself, it's cute!
She has been eating like a champ the last few weeks. Lots of first experiences with foods the last few weeks - eggs, potatoes, watermelon, cheerios, carrots. She eats something at every meal with us now. She nurses every 3.5-4 hours during the day, and lately has been doing 5 hour stretches at night. It's a welcome change from last month, when she was waking every 3-4 hours, wanting to eat. I am hoping that since we are here in our new house, and she is settling in her new crib/room, those nighttime stretches will get longer. This mama could really use more than a few hours of sleep at one time!
Evie sprouted another tooth this last month, so that makes two little fangs on the bottom. She adores L & Z, and is so happy to have her Daddy around again. She loves to be with him, and usually ends up taking her hands on either side of his face, and patting his face - which usually results in him squinting his face all funny, and her squealing and acting all proud. It's cute. The past week, I'll plop her on the floor, with some toys around her, and a bin with the remainder of the toys a little bit aways. It's been a little game for her to make it to the bin, and knock it over, dumping all the toys out. She is a stinker, and we love her! Our sweet Evie B, or 'Ev-va-win', as Ezra calls her!
