St. Patty's Day 2009

So I checked Facebook in the morning and everyone said they were giving their kids green food; green pancakes, cinnamon rolls with green icing, and green breakfast casserole, sooooo I thought Evie may want to have some green food too! I dressed her in her adorable leg warmers (the weather was FAB! 70's in March hurray!) and sat her down for some avocado breakfast. She ended up with most of it smeared across her face but did seem to get some in her mouth. What a mess! Then she went into the sunporch to watch Emma and Lucy sunbath on the deck! She loves watching them while they are outside and waving and talking to them. Later in the day, we took a looooong walk in the woods which was awesome because Emma was so tierd, she forgot to punch us every two minutes!

Oh so much done so little time to record it! Evie is now 10 months old- that's like almost a year- ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh where did the time go? The day after her 8 month b-day she started crawling. I hope I never forget the look on her face as if to say, "Mummy, I get it now! Check this out!" and crawled across the room to grab the cat's tail! Then, three days later she pulled herself up on a chair. I was totally unprepared for those two events to happen so close together but hey- it is not about my readiness that dictates what she will do when! Now that she is 10 months she is standing for 30 seconds to a minute at a stretch- it is only a matter of time before she walks. She is walking easily along the furniture now and transferring from one piece to the next with ease! Does it get any easier watching them grow older? She is just the love of my life and not a day goes by that I fail to wonder how empty life would be without her!

She also tried her first bit of solid food this month! I cried! We chopped an avocado up into tiny chunks and let her roll it around in her mouth. She did not swallow any yet but the dogs are going to LOVE this new phase of her life!!!!!!!
