Welcome to our little space on the net! This blog is just about our family life, and began as a way to keep family and friends updated on what was going on with my pregnancy with our first son, Gage. We've since added Evie to our family, and I continue to blog about family life, car seats, spina bifida, and anything else that catches my attention.

Evie's 6 months old!

Gage at 6 Months

First we had this "love pat"

That turned into this and finally this

Evie's a pretty awesome baby. She sleeps all night, and always has. She's sitting alone and has been for a couple of weeks. She is a generally happy baby, except when her brother hits her in the head. She loves watching Gage. She grabs whatever is in reach, including faces and hair. She can put her binky back in her own mouth a lot of the time. She's an awesome traveler. Right now, she's in 6-9 month clothes. I have no idea on diapers because she is wearing cloth pretty much full-time now.

I'll start this week offering her some solid food and see what she thinks. Gage didn't want anything to do with it until about 7 1/2 months, and I'm fine with it if she decides to do the same. I generally think baby food is kinda silly, since eating at this age is just about learning new tastes and practicing anyway. It really shouldn't be relied on for nutrition until after a year old. She'll probably get some banana pieces, avocado bits, or sweet potato bits to start with.

Sweet girl... Liam does the same thing to Wes with the head. It's almost like it's "love hitting". He's just so cute Liam can't resist smacking him upside the head.... i bet I say "don't touch his head" 25 times a day.
