Yep, my little girl weighs about the same as three sacks of potatoes. Cute pictures lurk within.
Nanc and I got new phones last week, and one of the benefits is the camera. Now, whenever Evie is being cute, I can record all of her cuteness in a fun, retro 3 megapixel way.
Here is a small portion of the cuteness that I've captured this week.
sent from my iPhone.
Evie's cousin stopped by for a visit last night.
We had a great time catching up with Dylan, who was visiting other relatives in Texas, and stopped by for a visit. In fact, he drove 2 hours in 100 degree weather (without A/C!!!) to size up his newest cousin.
We managed to sneak in a meal, a couple of games, some swimming, and plenty of Evie time during his whirlwind visit.
Of course, we also used this time to snap a couple of pictures. I've also included some other recent snaps of Evie, too.
We want to encourage creativity and music appreciation in our little girl, so we sat her down at our old, out-of-tune piano and let her plunk away.
Actually, it was pretty awesome.
She's no Chopin (but she is part Polish), but it is great fun to let her sit down and tickle the ivories.
We've been lax in our duty to post new pictures of Evie, or so it's been pointed out to us. We have been taking pictures as Evie tries more things and has more firsts, but getting them from the camera to the computer is the trick.
At 5 months, Evie is growing into a fun little person. She's still just as smiley and happy as ever, but now there's a fuller range of smiles and she's entertained by more things. This is quite fun for us.
Let sleeping babies lie where they fall (asleep).
Evie's had a full, fun day today. She's been swimming with P-la and the Squid - always a joy! Plus, she is totally rolling completely around now - total 360s.
This, of course, brings us closer to the mobile stage that frightens us a bit.
In this photo, Evie has rolled and rolled and rolled herself off her play mat and quilt, and onto the dirty floor (trust me). But I figure since her head is still on the quilt, there's no need to fuss and move her.
Is this bad - or just lazy parenting? (Or are those the same thing?)
