Evelyn laughing while I amuse her (Notes: I did not know that I was in the picture. Jason is the Photoshop king, thus I did not zoom in on her. Blogger rotated this pic...I can't seem to quickly figure out how to fix it - Evelyn is sleeping and I want to finish the post!)
Evelyn brings us so much joy! I try to take a few minutes every day to soak her in. I just told Jason yesterday how I love the stage she is in right now and would be just fine if she didn't grow anymore! We are mastering how to make her giggle - so much fun - she has THE cutest little laugh! She is also very "into" talking to her favorite toys. She has a new, throatier, way of talking that she is experimenting with, too. She loves to "dance" with us - as we wiggle her trunk while holding her hands, and "run it out" as we run with her legs while the other person holds her. She is also getting great at sitting up on our laps and on the floor with assistance. Our big girl!
Poor girl, her first cold turned into an ear infection. I am glad that my mother's intuition led me to bring her in on Monday instead of an emergency room trip yesterday or something. The bummer was that our doc was on vacation. I didn't care for the one on call. Oh well, she is on an antibiotic and I think is getting better. She wouldn't even nurse on the left side because her right ear hurt so bad.
I hope that these pics bring you all some of the joy we experience daily!
