The blog wouldn't let me keep posting the other day so here are some more!

June 4

Playing on the grass in a new outfit!
June 5

On Sunday she tried squash for the first time and liked it by Monday. The peas we tried today, but she doesn't like them so much. We'll try again when she wakes up from her nap.
She's on the MOVE!
About a week ago she really started scooting around. Not quite crawling, but close enough. She'll get up on her hands and knees and move her knees but fall on her tummy because she doesn't move her arms. She'll get it eventually. Right now we're just working on getting things out of low shelves!
Today is also Uncle Cory's birthday, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
I forgot to mention, last Friday was her 6 month birthday. YIPPEE! We can't believe 1/2 a year has flown by since she was born. Sometimes I miss her being brand new, other times it's a relief. :)

The latest pics......
May 11 - Attacking the plastic

May 17 - After her fight with a cat.
Just kidding. She took her nails to her face before we cut them.
We won't be waiting so long next time......

May 26 - Spoon-fed rice cereal. She didn't like it too much.
I think it was too thick at first so I watered it down.
Then it was too watery.

More rice cereal

June 4 - Playing after the bath.

Life is busy

Wow!!! We, (by that I mean both Laura and myself) aren't very good at this blog thing. Here are some new things that have happened in the last month.

Evelyn has learned how to sit up all on her own. She can even stay up for more than a couple of seconds. Such an intelligent child.

The other night I was getting her ready for bed, I left her on the bed and she rolled herself over and while my back was turned, she started to giggle. I turned around and lo and behold...she was up on all fours! She'll be crawling before we know what happened.

Evelyn had her 6 month checkup and weighed in at 15 lbs 13 oz and 27 inches tall. That's good enough for 56th percentile for weight and 98th percentile for height. I wonder where she got that from?

Laura stays busy with taking care of Evelyn all day. She's been doing a lot of family history and she continues to amaze me with her many many talents.

Caleb....well I have just been busy with summer semester at school. I'm currently taking physiology and so now I go around spouting useless information like "calcium binds to troponin, which moves tropomycin, allowing myosin to bind to actin." Its interesting, just not great conversation making stuff. This is another reason that Laura amazes me. She will listen to me spout incomprehensible babble and she still loves me.
