five months.

My favorite things:
  • Babbling! I talk all day from the moment I wake up until I go to sleep! And sometimes even after I've gone to sleep, I remember I still have things I need to say. Nothing like a little chit chat at 4am to keep thing interesting. 
  • Being outside. I like walks in the stroller, going to the park with my baby friends, coffee on the porch with Mom in the morning. My favorite is watching Beau play ball in the yard though. 
  • FaceTime. I love looking at faces on a phone or the computer screen and my grandparents and aunts and uncles seem to love looking at me! 
My least favorite things:
  • I still hate naps. I try to keep them nice and short so I can hurry up and get back to talking.
Our little Evie is still has happy and content as ever. This girl may look like Dad, but she has lots of her Mama's spunk and joie de vivre. She knows what she likes and she isn't afraid to tell us. She is still happiest in our arms, and she likes to let us know when it's time to pick her back up and cater to her. This month felt like it was spent almost entirely outside, which I adore. The weather is absolutely perfect here and that's short lived before it gets crazy hot. The transition to stay at home Mom has had it's rough days, so being out and about with friends and soaking up the springtime sun is good for everyone!

I also feel like I spent the whole month just marveling at how quickly this little person went from a teensy little newborn into a full fledged baby in so little time. It seems like every week she's mastering new skills and becoming more and more like someone who has a personality and distinct likes and dislikes. I also marvel at myself as I slowly become a full fledged mother! Every week I feel a little more confident and a little more proud of how far I've come in a short amount of time. I'm beginning to forget what it ever felt like not to be Eva's mom. I mean, until she's up at 4am chatting her little head off. I distinctly remember loving sleep in a former life...

Here's what we've been up to this month:

We had a rare chilly day here and she was ready with some winter wear from her Grandma.

First time in a swing! She didn't love it.  
Browsing at the used book store with Dad.

First pool day! The water was too cold, but she looked as cute as ever in her teeny swimsuit!

The jumper is her fave and lifesaver for us! 

Skyping with Grandma and Grandpa. 

This is what happens when Dad needs to put her down for a minute and she can't sit up yet... 

Oh just two Dads brewing beer while they tend to the babies. Heart eyes!
Eva's posse. 

When your posse is almost all boys, you're bound to have an admirer.  
The backyard is our favorite place in Jacksonville lately. 

First time on a carousel! She was much more interested in the shiny pole. 

What a little weirdo...

All of my favorite things on one quilt.
First trip to Lowe's with Dad. He found her favorite aisle. 

First Easter basket!

She met chickens at a friend's house and she was thrilled! She was talking to them and everything.
