lots of adventures

This has been a busy week!

Gramma gave me a really cute new haircut! This is me saying "cheese" with a piece of cheese!

Then Mommy filled my pool and we had Emma over to play...we had such a good time!

I also got a new sandbox. It wasn't exactly new, but Aunt Kelly's friend was selling it in a garage sale, so Gramma bought it for me! I just love it!

Here's Eva laying on Aunt Kelly's lap. She is up a lot more than she used to be - Mommy says that babies don't always sleep all day! She poops a lot and has the hiccups all the time! She isn't as animated as I was, she is much more serious!

the sleeping eva & fishing with papa tom

Eva sleeps all the time...just look at this picture taken last week! This is her normal behavior...I couldn't imagine sleeping all day. I would miss too much. Mommy and Daddy tell me that I never slept this well, even in the beginning! I guess I never wanted to miss anything!

Over the weekend we went fishing with Papa Tom. Eva didn't wake up, but I managed to walk right into the water. Mommy got upset, but I had such a great time!

Here I am with Daddy getting warmed by a towel/blanket. That's Emma holding her fish, Mr. Flippy! I wish I had caught my own fish, but I was wrapped in the blanket for most of the trip. I can't wait to go fishing again!

Here I am with my baby sister, Eva.

I love her so much I even wrote her a song:

My Baby Sister
(clap, clap, clap)
My Baby Sister
(clap, clap clap)

welcome baby eva

I have a new Baby Sister! Eva Margarite Martin was born on Saturday May 12th, 2007 at 2:36 in the morning. She was 7 pounds 12 ounces and 21 inches long. Mommy and Daddy think she looks a lot like I did, but with lots more black hair! Here are a few pictures of her!

Here's a pic of Eva with Mommy & Daddy (only hours after her birth)!

and h
ere is a picture of Grandma and Papa Tom holding Eva:

and one of Grandma and Grandpa Martin (the Marts) holding Eva:

Mommy and Eva were able to come home yesterday afternoon...and I got to watch her get changed! It was really cool. I also got to see her breastfeed...which was even cooler!!!
I'm sure Eva and I will have lots to post about real soon, so come back anytime!

a baby is coming!

Any day now Mommy is going to have my little sister, Eva. Even though her due date is May 22nd, Mommy was told that things are "ready" for Eva's birth. So it could be very soon! I love to call the baby Evie and kiss her in Mommy's belly, but Mommy doesn't think I really understand the whole baby sister thing yet. I suppose once Eva is home from the hospital I'll be able to get a first hand view of what my new life will be like.

Until then, Mommy and I play together all day and we even take a nap together after lunch. Today we are cleaning the house - anticipating Eva's arrival this weekend.

Mommy has her next doctor's visit tomorrow afternoon. Maybe they'll give her even better news than last week!

When Eva comes we will share this blog to tell you about our daily (weekly/monthly) adventures. I suppose I won't mind sharing too much :)
