Little baby Evie is no longer little, and becoming less of a baby. She’s now ten (one-oh) months old… wahoo! Our little love has been having a dandy old time hanging out with me this summer! We get to sleep until 7:30 instead of 5:30! That may be the most divine thing about summer… sleeping in.
Some new things Evie got to experience this month are the River Festival Fitness Five (we walked two miles, not that impressive, ha ha), traveling to Nebraska, going to Rolling Hills Zoo, vomiting, Ritz crackers, the library, and toothpaste. Evie got a new wagon that she absolutely adores! The only thing she needs is a stick and a person to pull her around, and she is occupied for seemingly hours. We take regular trips to Oakdale in the wagon, and she’s as happy as a hummingbird.
She has taken on the skill of rolling so much more in month ten. She also loves to point at things. She does this little scrunchy face wink thing (see below) when she sticks her little index finger out… It is quite adorable. Evie also stands very sturdily and loves to play and dance next to her musical table. Eating with her own two hands has become a cinch. She loves spaghetti and meatballs, lasagna, cheddar cheese, avocado, yogurt, basically anything with a strong flavor. The sippy cup is making more of an appearance around the Henry abode lately too.
Speaking of feeding the pie hole, Evie’s pie hole has five teeth! Her top two have come in, along with a third bottom one, making it darn near impossible for her to resist sinking her chompers into everything: toys, cribs, fingers… but mostly books. A few of her board books have fallen apart after just a short, high-impact session with Evie’s pearly whites. In a flash of light, that girl can have the binding of a book shredded into sopping smithereens cascading down her chin.
Getting excited to have a birthday party for my little choochie-face soon… but mostly just enjoying the present. She’s sure a great gift!
