Chewing on hands, any hands, your hands, my hands, her hands, any hands.
Doggie kisses

Looking at herself in the mirror

the carseat

being on the floor

Evelyn,
This month was a big month for us. You and I flew to Tucson for to visit some of my family, and you did so well on all of our flights. You did great with all the strangers you were meeting, and you slept so well even though you didn’t have your daddy snoring next to you. It was pretty darn hot some days and you handled that well too. I am pretty sure you are teething, you have been really fussy in the evenings and you’ll put your hand into your mouth and rub your gums. But most of the day you are as pleasant as ever and still so happy. You are growing so fast, you are already in 6-9 month PJs your onsies vary depending on brand (it’ll be that way your whole life though) you can still fit a few 0-3 but mostly 3-6 is what you are wearing. Pants, because you are so long and skinny, are weird. You mostly fit 0-3 but they are a bit short sometimes, you can even fit a pair of your newborn pants, but they are very short. If we have you in paper diapers it’s still size one, but you are in cloth diapers 99.9% of the time. I am still exclusively breast feeding you and the only food besides my milk you have had is that one little bit of guacamole a few weeks ago.  I still sometimes can’t believe you are mine, forever. I worry about you endlessly, more about how you will grow up, and will I be a good mom, and will you always be safe and happy. We found out we are for sure moving to California this winter, and although we already moved from the home that we brought you home from the hospital to, it’s still weird to think that you wont even spend a year in the first state you ever lived in. You’ll never remember living here.
