Oh my goodness! She can’t possibly actually be one year old!
We had a very fun water party for Evie’s birthday with all of her favorites! We were outside (of course), with kiddie pools set up for the little ones, squishy squirt guns, inflatable beach balls, and a sprinkler. We ate watermelon, strawberries, grapes, extra sharp cheddar cheese, cheese balls and crackers, cake and ice cream! The cake was an incredible ocean-theme made by our very dear friends Ben and Lacey, Evie dove right into it!
Evie officially got herself off Mommy milk and has started only cow’s milk and is doing wonderfully with it! Evie LOVES fruits and vegetables, she’s not a fan of meat but will eat pretty much any fruits and vegetables she’s offered. We haven’t seen any sign of the previous “tummy troubles and she’s growing like a weed! At her one year appointment her hemoglobin was fine (no anemia), she has gained weight and was in the 35th percentile in weight, which is the highest she’s ever been! When she was born she was 6lb 10 oz and 19 ½ inches, in the 10th percentile, at one year she was 18 lb 8 oz and 29 inches in the 35th percentile!
Evie is walking/running/dancing...regularly says "Ma", "Dada", "Dog", "Go" (as in...pointing, I want to GO outside), she signs "more" all the time, is starting to do "eat", we're working on "all done", she "gives sugar" (sloppy kisses) and loves to mimic! She is becoming more and more amusing not just trying to mimic but trying to get laughs. She is quite an entertainer. One of her funniest faces is her "cheeeeese" face, a ridiculously cheesy grin where she throws her head back and shows her teeth...it is hilarious!
Thank you to everyone who has continued to prayerfully walk this journey with us!
What is that?!?
Um...why is everyone looking at me and singing?
Is there something amusing about the way I eat?
But MOOOOOOM I want to run free!!!
Haha...I got free!
It's exhausting being the center of attention!
Evie, Andy and Kinsley went to the zoo for her actual birthday!
Happy 4th!!! Look at that wild hair that's really growing now!
