Friends Retreat

This past weekend was our annual Friends Church Retreat. It was Eva's first time "camping" (ok, we were in cabins so it wasn't technically camping). We had a great time. We used the hiking backpack for Eva for the first time and everytime she was in it, she fell asleep right away.

Baby Legs!

Look what mommy and daddy made me. Am I cute or what?!

Mommy has been wanting some for a while but they were too expensive (usually $12 - $14 a pair) so she got directions on how to make them. She made 2 pair for just a couple of bucks. Daddy had to show her how to use a sewing machine because she had never used one before. Thanks grandma DiDi for showing daddy how to use a sewing machine when he was younger.
And thanks grandma F. for walking mommy through threading the machine over the phone.

Here are some pics of her on the day she was born.

And here are some recent pics of her.

Rolling Over

Eva rolled over for the first time (unassisted). She did it the evening of her 4 month dr. appointment where her pediatrician had said she is a little behind in the rolling over department, guess she showed him.

Eva's 4 month appointment

Eva had her 4 month dr. appointment this morning. She weighs 14lbs, 3oz (60th%!) and is 24.5 inches long (50th%) and her head is in the 55th% (can't remember the exact #, I think 41). Her doctor said everything looks wonderful and said she is a very strong and social little girl...of course we already knew that. He said she is a little behind on rolling over but he's not worried about it.
She had to get 3 more shots and did really well until hours later when she started screaming. I gave her some baby Tylenol and now she is sleeping....although she still is kind of crying/whining a bit in her sleep.
She has a little bit of a rash on her legs and arms and her doc said she just has sensitive skin and gave me a prescription creme to use for a few days until the rash is gone. And then he said to use Cetaphyl (not sure on the spelling) creme to keep her skin healthy after that.
So, all in all a good appointment. Her next appointment is in 2 months and her pediatrician said everything should be the same until then.

Payton is 4 years old!

Our nephew Payton turned 4 years old on May 2nd and had a dinosaur birthday party to celebrate! Isn't he cute.

And here is a picture of Eva with her dinosaur snout on....

And a picture of all the cousins together...Luke, Payton, Heather and Eva.

Eva's first boo-boo

Well, Eva got her first boo-boo. I was holding her in one arm and my other hand was full and she threw herself back and smacked the back of her head. I felt so bad but Eva only cried for a minute and then she was fine. Now she has a owie right on the bald spot on the back of her head.

Let's Celebrate!

Well, Eva turned 4 months old on April 30th and that night decided to give mommy a present.....she slept through the night for the first time ever!!! She slept straight through from 9:30pm to 5:30am. Then, I put her pacifier back in her mouth and she slept until 6:20am. I then fed her and she went back to sleep until I woke her up to get her ready for daycare at 7:20am. This is cause to, do whatever you do to celebrate....give a cheer, have a drink, eat some cake, whatever!
