Today we went and visited Santa. I agreed to sit next to him, but Eva had no problem sitting on his lap. I asked him for a Thomas train, and I thought I was going to get it there. So I was a bit confused that I left without my train. Mommy and Daddy reassured me that I would see my train on Christmas morning if I continued to be a good girl. Santa said I had a gold star next to my name on his list because I was a great help with Eva. He sees EVERYTHING you know!

I kept my distance - but I made sure to tell him everything I wanted.

There were SO many people there! I really don't like crowds...

Eva at 5 months

Eva is now over 5 months old! She is 19 pounds 8 ounces and 27 inches. She is still growing quickly!

Mommy hopes to get more pictures up on here real soon. We've had a very busy month (so far) with appointments, preschool visits, and upcoming Halloween fun!

As always, Eva and I are having fun!

Zoe's Swim Class

The pics of Zoe's swim class -

Zoe swimming with Daddy - CHEESE!

Swimming on her back. Notice her hair does NOT touch the water!

The instructor - one of three different ones in the first three classes! HAHA!

Zoe kicking her feet - notice again that her hair is NOT touching the water.

Moving her arms AND legs - her hair at this point is a bit wet....but notice again that she is using her neck to prevent further wetness.

Jumping off the side of the pool!

Zoe jumps again!

Last Sunday we went Apple Picking. I picked apples all by myself! As you can see I had a really great time!

Eva also picked apples with Mommy's help. She wasn't as happy as I was to be picking them. We ate warm donuts afterwards and today Daddy made yummy apple sauce!

Eva had cereal this week. She loved it! She seemed to want to eat it faster than Mommy could feed her!

Here I am helping Mommy feed Eva. I really love her!

Here are Daddy and me at my swim class! I love it! I can move my arms, and kick my legs, jump from the side of the pool, and blow bubbles. I'm not real thrilled to get my hair wet though, as you can see from this picture!

Eva at 4 months

Eva went to the doctor with Mommy today.
18 pounds 2 ounces
26.5 inches

The doctor said she was very healthy. Eva has been rolling over for a month now, and the doctor was very excited and said that breastmilk was the reason! Mommy had to laugh at that. Here is a silly picture of me!

On Sunday our church had a picnic and invited ponies for the children to ride. Most of the kids rode once, but I didn't want to stop riding. I loved every minute of it, and cried when the ponies had to take naps! Eva was too small to ride, but I showed her how much fun I had!

Eva 3 Months

Yesterday baby Eva was 3 months old! It's hard to imagine what life was like without her! I love her so much!

Today Mommy took her to the doctors for updates and shots. Her stats (as Mommy calls them) are as follows:

Weight: 15pounds 15ounces
Height: 24.5 inches

Eva is bigger than I was, but I'm still bigger than her now! She can almost roll over and loves to talk to anyone that will listen. Mommy says that she sleeps 5 or 6 hours at night without waking now. I sleep 10 hours, but Eva needs to wake to drink Mommy's milk.

We both are growing every day!

our trip to Lansing

Last weekend, July 27th - July 29th, my family went to Lansing and East Lansing. Lansing is Michigan's state capitol. But we were there because Daddy went to Michigan State when he was younger. We got to see beautiful gardens, swim in a big pool and visit with friends and family. It was really a great time!

more adventures

We are definitely busy girls these days. Most of our time is spent playing...and I also help Mommy clean the house. I really love doing dishes! Soap is so cool...I sing the song Mommy wrote "Wash Your Hands" when we are washing the dishes.

Eva and I got baptized and had a really cool party with the family afterward. Pastor "Amen" and his wife, Patty, also came to celebrate. My favorite gift was a book from G.G. called, "100 Bible Stories". I have learned a lot about God and Jesus. I plan on teaching Eva all about God one day too!

Here are some recent pics from July:

On Saturday we went to a Birthday Party for our cousin, Josh! He is 1 years old! He didn't make the mess of his cake like I did with mine...oh well. Isn't he cute?!

Here I am eating Josh's cake (I already ate the ice cream). Of course now I eat with a was yummy! You can see Mommy holding Eva in the corner of this picture. Eva is getting SO big!

Eva Statistics

Today Eva went to the pediatrician and here were her statistics:

Weight = 11 pounds
Height = 22 1/2 inches
Head Circumference = 15 1/2 inches

She's in the 95th percentile for all three. Mommy says its good that she is proportionate. I was 22 1/2 inches at 2 months and 11 pounds between 2 and 3 months. Eva is bigger than I was, but she's still smaller than me now!

Zoe 10 weeks; Eva 5 weeks -

Mommy can't believe how BIG Eva is! Mommy & Eva go to the pediatrician tomorrow for her 1 month wellness visit. What's funny is that Eva is already 11 pounds (at least that's what Daddy figures) at 5 weeks, and I was 10 pounds 8 ounces at 2 months!

...and Happy Father's Day to all the Daddys out there too!

another busy week

It was really a great week. Mommy and I hung out with Aunt Kelly and Emma a couple times, I played with my friend, Natalie, and met new friends, Camden (who I called "Honey") and his sister Arianna. We also went to Greenfield Village AND the Detroit Zoo!

This week should be equally as fun!

Here is Eva playing in her John Lennon Play Gym. She really enjoyed watching the animals and tried to grab them!

Here I am holding Eva

This is Daddy and me at the Detroit Zoo - it was after a LONG day!

week three

Lots of people keep asking "who does Eva look like?" Of course everyone has their opinions. Mommy keeps telling people that Eva resembles me (Zoe), but we look different. That's me on the left and Eva on the right. We are both approximately 3 weeks old in these photos. Mommy tried her best to find ones that were similar. So you make the call...
