This month we got more visitors, my cousin Nikki and Uncle Charlie came down so he could do some hunting and she could continue her college search!
We also got to take a trip, we went to Myrtle Beach for Evie’s first hot weather beach visit! Jonathan and I both LOVE the beach and have many wonderful family memories from the beach as a child, we loved taking Evie to the beach from my childhood at Christmas and were so excited to take her to Daddy’s beach! She LOVED it! She is definitely our girl, she is wild, adventurous and always raring to be outside! We were such new parents taking her to the beach, me with a camera, Jonathan with a video camera, snapping/filming away. It took about 3 seconds for her to discover the waves and want to dive in!
Granna and Papa came for a visit this month as well! Mommy and Daddy had to go to a weekend with the army, so Granna and Papa joined us to hang out with Evie while we went to meetings. The day before our meetings we got to take Evie to the zoo for the first time!
She also discovered walking was way quicker/more fun than crawling! Although she took her first steps just before she turned 9 months, she still preferred crawling to walking until 10 ½ months, at that point she started moving and it seemed like overnight she was trying to run! She went from only wanting to walk in between two people to wanting to walk all the time…everywhere…non-stop…
Hmmm....this looks like it might feel interesting in my mouth...
She was thrilled to dive into the waves with Daddy!
I love this girl!
Thanks Uncle Jed and Auntie Alyssa for these adorable matching outfits!
