7 Months and Father's Day

Okay, I am definitely late on this post, but better late than never right?

Our sweet Evie is 7 months old, and this has been a month of milestones!  First, Evie decided to roll over.   Then she decided to sit up!  She is far from crawling (I hope!), but seems more than content sitting in front of a pile of toys.

Evie still proves to be one easy baby.  She laughs at everything, especially when she is really tired!  We are working on moving her from 3 naps down to 2....some days are better than others.

She is for sure sleeping through the night consistently!  This is a major major plus!  Belle took MUCH longer to sleep through the night, but Evie seems to have finally been able to do this regularly.  This makes a huge difference!

Baby food seems to be going well still.  She LOVES sweet potatoes, and would eat them all day every day, although I have found ways to hide green beans, peas, and spinach so she gets a few green veggies in her diet.

Evie is very entertained by her sister.  Belle can make her laugh in an instant.  She is more than content watching her run around the house.  Belle is so good with her too.  She gives her toys to play with and I often catch her randomly giving Evie kisses.  Melt my heart!

I am amazed at how fast things have gone and cannot believe that Ev is closer to a one year old than a newborn!  She has a smile that lights up a room and a laugh that is infectious.  She is definitely a baby with loads of personality!

This past Sunday was Father's Day and this family has a lot to be thankful for.  Paul is one amazing dad.  He handles two young girls quite well.  He has done Belle's hair on many occasions (and not too bad I might add), has finally accepted all of the pink in our home, and loves on Belle and Evie like crazy.  I love to watch him interact with the girls and I am so thankful for a man that is so involved in the lives of his kids.  We thought we would show him our appreciation with a special picture just for him.

A HUGE thank-you to Ann Jansen for taking these beautiful pictures.
