Life is great!
Hard and busy, but great!
Last month we were able to go to my family reunion, definitely a highlight of our summer! We had a lot of fun and made tons of great memories! Evelyn got a new tooth so she didn't have as much fun as we had hoped but near the end it broke through and she was happier!
We are hoping that all of his hard work will pay off and he will get into BYU next fall and finish in the Engineering program there! We are excited for a little break before life gets crazy again!
Evelyn is 9 months old and learning new things everyday! I love this stage! I love watching her figure things out and see things "Click". It's also a lot harder having such an explorer around!
She is a master crawler now and is getting pretty fast!
She stands up on everything and gets into EVERYTHING!
I am always catching her with something in her mouth! Her favorite thing to chew on is cardboard! I put everything up that wasn't baby friendly and I still find her eating stuff! She eats her board books! What the heck! I keep finding chunks taken out of her books and her chewing on the cardboard! Yuck!
She is going through a clingy stage right now! She follows me everywhere and cries if she can't see me! Some days are worse than others and she cries if i'm not holding her! Oh golly! Sometimes it makes me cringe that I can't do anything without her "help" and sometimes it makes me laugh or even want to cry! It gets pretty OLD but sometimes I like it. I like to feel like she loves me so much that she always wants to be with me or just that she needs me.
It's hard to believe how big she is getting! She grows up more and more every single day! It's crazy! She is our best entertainment! She does some pretty hilarious things!
She loves to clap when we say "yay"
she loves to play Pat-a-cake and peek a boo
she laughs all the time,
she LOVES other kids and babies! Sometimes it takes all I have to keep her from totally clobbering another baby! She squeals in delight and shakes with excitement when she see's them! She tries so hard to keep up with the little kids running around her. She giggles and does what she can to keep up!
Her favorite snacks are green beans, grapes, cheerio's and grandma (Graham) crackers, thanks to her Grandma Mitchell. :)
She has 6 little chompers and bites everything! yeah, everything! YOWSA!
I just can't imagine having another baby to love as much as I love her but I am starting to get a little baby hungry! Weird! After I had Evelyn I thought I would never get baby hungry again. Or at least not this early! She isn't even ONE yet for crying out loud! Sheesh!
Anyway, that's our life in a nutshell!
All is well and we like it that way! :)
