7 months

Yes I said it Eviee turned 7 months on Valentines Day. I happen to think thats really sweet to have her 7 month birthday on her first Valentines day... Anyway a few pics from yesterday :)

 Eviee got a pink poodle. Its so cute and is the perfect size for her little hands. Daddy also had the flower shop add a balloon to mommy's roses just for Eviee.
Can you believe how big she is getting???

So lets see what has been going on with Miss Eviee this last month...

Weighing in at 18 lbs this bright blue eyed beauty has got have mommy and daddy wrapped DOUBLE around her pinky. :)

She wakes up at 800 on the dot most mornings. And always with a smile on her face.

Eviee has the cutest little personality. And a smile that will melt your heart!!!

She like any other baby wants to get her hands on EVERYTHING!

Her hair is strawberry blonde! And fits her perfectly!

Eviee never has made it to her crib at night.

I bought one of those mesh teething things (not sure what they are called) that you put a piece of food in it and she chews on the end and little bitty pieces of food come through... I put a banana in it and she chewed on it forever! Little tip bath is needed afterwards for sure!

She is still army crawling BACKWARDS!

She has recently learned how to scream. LOVELY!

She is still only napping for about 15 mins, 3 times a day.

She is the most affectionate baby I have ever seen. She is always giving you kisses or hugging you. When she gets sleepy she will start rubbing her hand along you cheek. Too sweet.

We have not yet started teething. Sean and I both got our teeth in around a year old and I think she will be the same.

She is in love with balloons.

She loves books. Used to when we would read a book to her she was too busy trying to grab it and now she will just sit in your lap and listen to you read. :)

If water is running she wants in it!!! Its going to be so fun this summer watching her in Nana's pool. She will love it!

Her "milk allergy" seems to be getting better. We are actually going to try tomorrow to take away the formula all together. She only has about one to two bottles a day now but no formula is better. :)

She is totally loving ALL of her baby food. She really likes it when mommy makes it. Fresh is best! :)

The doctor keeps telling me that she is on the shorter side... Why do doctors even tell you things like this??? Have they not gotten the memo that we are all DIFFERENT???? (and her mommy is only 5'3)LOL

She loves rubber ducks!!!!

And baby dolls!!! (this makes me really happy)

She gets her picture taken at least five times a day!!!

Ha our new love is baby sun glasses. Sean and I thought that since him and I always wear sunglasses that Eviee needed some too, so I went and bought her some and what do you know she loves them. She does not try and pull them off and as a matter of fact when you put them on her face she will give you the biggest smile.  So yesterday while at the mall we bought her two new pairs. :)

Her favorite baby food is Pumpkin Bananas

She loves to be outside.

She has the best attuitde. Thank goodness I was scared she was going to have mine but it seems we got lucky and she has her daddy's ;) thank you lord!!!

She is now wearing size three diapers.
Dogs make her break out in a rash and she cant breathe!!! :(

All in all Eviee is a great baby (yes I know I say it all the time). She is the light in my eyes! I love her so much. I am loving watching her grow and being able to stay at home with her. Everyday she gets cuter!

Our days well spent

Eviee will be 7 months old next week so I really want to wait and talk about her and all the new things she is doing in next weeks post but I wanted to write our daily schedule so that when she is older I can look back and remember how simple life was before it consist of work,school,dance class,birthday parties, and so on. So here's what Eviee and I do all day long. Hope you enjoy HA!!!!
800-Eviee wakes mommy up by pulling my hair or running her hand along my cheek. Dot judge me but after 1:30am we co-sleep. Eviee wakes up at 1:30 and comes to our bed so that she can nurse.  She will then nurse off and on the rest of the night so...  After years of me making not so nice comments about people who sleep with their kids in bed I am now one of those people. What can ya do. LOL

815-Eviee eats and  mommy gets her morning kisses. :)

830-We get out of bed, Eviee gets a diaper change and I lay her in her bedroom floor. Eviee has a pile of stuffed animals in her floor and she just loves them. She will lay there a good while just talking and kissing all over them. So cute!!!
While Eviee is having her morning get together with her "babies" mommy makes... you guessed it COFFEE! Coffee does nothing for me in the sense of waking me up but I JUST HAVE TO HAVE IT! Don't worry I only drink two cups.

900-Mommy and Eviee sit down turn on The Rachel Ray show while and Eviee eats her breakfast. After she is done eating we have some floor time.

1000-Eviee takes a nap.

1015-Eviee wakes up. No lie 15 min

1030-Eviee eats again. (When I say eats I mean nurse)
After she's done we read some books. Sean and I think it is very important to read to her so I try to at least once or twice a day. She loves it.

1100-Snack time. Ha I think its kinda cute she has snack time. We recently started eating fruit puffs and she loves them. They are pretty little but still too big for her so I have to break them up. She will usually eats about 5 or 6 full puffs. We buy Happy Baby brand of puffs. They are organic and we love them.

1115-Some days about this time she will take another nap and some days she don't. Today she did. During this nap, if we have it I try and get a little workout in but... sometimes I just get a little FB time instead. LOL

1200-Eviee eats lunch. I either make her baby food or if I am lazy then I open a Plum Organic. Plum Organic is a great organic baby food line!

1230-Eviee plays while mommy has lunch.

115-Eviee eats and takes a nap. These last couple of days she has actually taken an hour long nap. Don't know if this is going to be the new thing or she is just trying to trick mommy.

215-Eviee wakes up, gets changed, and eats.

230-We try to get out and take a walk if its not cold or too windy if not we just play. :)

300-Eviee and I sit down to watch The Ellen show. LOVE HER!
And for some reason I pick this time of the day to start washing and drying clothes. During the breaks of course. LOL

400-I usually try to pick up the house while Eviee is playing.

500-Eviee eats and has a few more puffs.

545-Eviee naps for 15 mins

615-Start dinner for Sean and I

700-Eviee eats dinner

715-Daddy's home!!!!

730-Sean and I eat dinner while Eviee sits in her bumbo seat on the table playing with my cooking spoons lol her big brother Logan says that she is going to be a cook when she grows up. :)

800-Bath time and PJ's for Eviee

900- Relax and try to get Eviee asleep before 10 TRY...

1000-We all go to bed... all three of us :)

1030-Eviee is finally asleep...Move her to her bed and now mommy can sleep...for three hours straight

So there ya go this  is how most of our days go. Now of course we have our days when things don't always go like this, but MOST of the time they do.

Fridays are ALWAYS my days to run around. I try to only "run around" one to two days a week. I cant stand to have Eviee in the dang car seat all the time. I just feel bad for her. Even when she was real little and slept most of the time I still felt bad.

There ya go, Hope you enjoyed! Next week I will post new pictures.
