Just practicing

We are waiting to try solid foods until Evelyn is 6 months old, but I read that baby can practice sitting in their high chair and start to experience family meal time before their half birthday.  Evelyn enjoyed playing with her spoon while she watched Nate and I eat dinner.

Evelyn and I went for a run this morning.

Then later we visited Nate at work.

Georgia (with lots of pictures)

We took our first family road trip to Gainesville, Georgia to visit Meredith for the weekend.  Evelyn did a terrible job sleeping, but otherwise she was well behaved and I think had a fun time.  Nate and I had lots of fun anyway.  We watched a couple movies, checked out Lake Lanier and the rowing club where Meredith works, and Evelyn went swimming for the first time!

Time for the pool

Evelyn really seemed to like the pool

Evelyn looks happy but she's sad to leave

5 months

Evelyn is 5 months old today - wow!  But I have her in disposable diapers right now instead of cloth which means she is wearing her 0-3 month clothes (without the bulk of the cloth diaper anything bigger than 3 months just hangs off of her).

Evelyn is just fascinated by Penny.  And Penny is very tolerate of Evelyn.  We spend a lot of time practicing petting Penny and being gentle.

She loves her feet!

Evelyn saw her first turtle this morning.

She was pretty excited.

Being silly at Kroger.

Father's Day recap

I think Nate had a nice Father's Day on Sunday.  We went out to brunch and Evelyn was fairly well behaved.  She did not stay asleep as long as we thought she would, but she was easily distracted in her car seat.  We watched a lot of soccer and Nate worked in the garden.  He has done an amazing job with the garden this year.

I was instructed to post some photos of Evelyn.  So here she is sleeping in her sling, which she loves.

Sleeping on the couch.

And playing with her hippo.

4 month check-up

Evelyn had her 4 month check-up on Tuesday.  The doctor was very pleased with her progress and development.  She is still awfully skinny at 12 lbs 1.5 oz (8th percentile) and fairly long at 25 1/4 inches (79th percentile).

All three of us have been fighting a stomach bug this week.  It started with me on Sunday and I finally started to feel back to normal last night.  Nate had it worst; he stayed home from work yesterday.  Evelyn seemed to be affected the least.  She had some pretty good spit-ups yesterday, but nothing worse than that.  Thank goodness.
