Evie @ 11 monthsMonday, August 26, 2013
SO excited, lol!
Practicing her walking with L.
It is hard to believe that in one short month, my little baby will be 1-year old!
Sweet Evie is doing great. She weighs about 18 lbs, wears some 9m clothes, but is getting into 12m. She nurses 3-4 times a day, and eats meals with us like a champ. She loves bananas, watermelon, rice and beans, cheese toast, broccoli, sweet potatoes, and eggs. She cut another tooth on the bottom a few days ago, and I am pretty certain 2 or 3 more are going to pop through on the top in the next couple of days.
I am happy to finally be able to say that my girl FINALLY sleeps through the night! Yay! Only took 10.5 months, but here we are! And this mama is HAPPY!!! She goes to bed around 730, and has been sleeping until around 7am! I am loving it!
Evie adores her siblings and her Daddy. She gives kisses (slobbery ones!), claps, and waves. She is starting to babble more and more, stands up on furniture, and loves to play with legos and the dollhouse. She loves swinging at the park, and "helping" me empty the dryer. She isn't terribly interested in walking, but does it with us when we hold her hands.
We sure do love our little Evie girl.
At the beach on Saturday.
We headed out after breakfast, to soak in the sunshine, watch the surf, and dip our toes in the cold ocean waters. We found this fun beach right off of Highway 1, about a mile past Carmel. Instead of sand, it was mostly little teeny pebbles that made up the beach. Ezra scooped and dumped, scooped and dumped, like usual. Evie sat and played with the pebbles. And Eliana was back and forth, exploring rocks with her Daddy, dipping her toes in the water, and burying her stuffed cow in the pebbles. It was a gorgeous morning, the beach was beautiful, and we even saw some otters and seals in the water! Of COURSE my camera battery died immediately after I took the first and only photo, but oh well! We definitely enjoyed our morning at the beach!
