A Girl and Her Shoes


Evie is taking after her Auntie Sidney.  She already has 11 pairs of shoes!   


Of course they are different sizes so she is set for her first year.  I mean a newborn needs her shoes right?!


I guess we are starting her out right.  Auntie Sidney, you should be so proud! (and none of these shoes came from you!)

Not Me Monday!


Ok I am back for another Not Me! Monday.

This week we did not have a lizard in our family room.  I did not scream and stand on a chair while Devin caught it.  We also did not have a mouse in our family the very next night.  Although I stood on the floor, I definitely did not scream every time it ran around the room. while Devin tried to catch it.  Nope!

I definitely did not buy Halloween candy today because we live on a street with 4 other houses and I am planning on getting a lot of trick-or-treaters.  I did not buy it just so I could eat it.  Now way!  I would never do that!


That’s it, till next time!

Today at MOPS…

We made tutu’s.

They are so easy to make and took less than 30min (although all the prep work was already done).

Here is how mine turned out:






I think somebody is going to be a ballerina for Halloween!

Evie is 1 Month Old

Our baby girl is already 1 month old.  The time has really flown by.  In all ways, she is the perfect baby.  She is even easier than Jacob was.  She is a sleepy baby but wakes easily for feedings.  She is starting to be awake a little more and wake up on her own for feedings.  She is content and happy and loves her brothers loving touches.  


She had a perfect report from the doctor today.  Her eye infection is all cleared up.   She is now 8 pounds 10 ounces and 20 inches long.  That puts her around the 25th % percentile for weight and the 10th %tile for length.  (click here to compare  Jacob’s 1 month stats)


She is wearing newborn size diapers but will be moving to size 1 as soon as we run out of newborns.  She is wearing newborn size clothes but quickly growing into 0-3month clothes.  She has so many cute clothes, I am afraid she will never wear all of them before she grows out of them.


She is nursing 6-7 times a day.  She is sleeping 5-6 hours at night (I wake her up after 5-6 hours).  She rarely cries unless she wakes up hungry or needs to burp/spit up.  She is spitting up a lot, just like her brother did, but I think she might be refluxing.  She seems a lot more uncomfortable than Jacob was.


She is sleeping in her crib at night, swaddled up of course.  She was sleeping in our room until about 2 weeks ago and then got he boot.  She is much too noisy, grunting and squeaking.  We all get much better sleep now. 

She loves tummy time.  Loves it so much that she falls asleep almost every time.  Her favorite thing is sleeping on mommy’s chest or anyone really.  She is the most comfortable on your chest.  Maybe, just maybe she will be a snuggler!
