Evie is 6 months and a load of firsts!

My baby is half a year old! She is practically a kid! OK I am exaggerating, but she is getting huge.

Evie is now eating solid food,  Her favorite is sweet potato or squash, and she does not like green beans or zucchini. She can now hold and feed herself a baby cracker and loves to drink water out of her sippy cup.
Evie has also gotten her first (and second) tooth, they are still not grown in yet, but you can definitely see that those suckers have broken through.  She is pretty good with teething.  we usually have one screamy evening just as the tooth breaks through, and then its all over.  She hasn't been biting at all yet so it seems all good :)

Evie is also on the short track to crawling.  She is pushing up into down-dog and occasionally right onto her hands and knees. If only she would stop trying to push with her head, she could probably figure it out!

Well I think that is the rap sheet for now.  Stay tuned for updates.

Summer Continued!

I know, I know I have practically abandoned you this summer :) But good news, school is back in session and it is September, so it is now fall.

So, on with summer recap part 2!

As I mentioned last time, we were heading off on vacation.  We had a great time in Cape Breton even with all the driving! Evie did a lot of following Mommy ans Daddy around on history tours, but she was very tolerant of us.  She did have a great time in the indoor swimmin pool, I think she thought it was just a huge bathtub!

We also went to our final wedding of the summer, and Evie had a chance to play with Sophie!

Now on to the new season!
