Thank you Shauna!

Eva recieved a package in the mail today from Carrie's creative, talented, and thoughtful cousin Shauna (check out her stuff here.... or here She sent Eva an adorable tutu that she made (coming soon to her etsy store) and a couple of cute little hair clips (that actually stay in Eva's hair...YAY). Thanks Shauna, you're the best!


On Monday, Aaron and I thought we better take advantage of the nice weather (I think it was about 70 degrees as opposed to the snow we got recently....crazy Idaho weather) so we decided that after work we would take Eva to a pumpkin patch. We really want to make sure we have some fun family traditions with our kids so we thought we'd try this out and see if it might become a yearly thing for us. Eva just kind of took everything in and inquisitively looked on as we went on a hayride, checked out some animals at the petting zoo, and picked out our pumpkins (a tiny one for Eva and a green one for me and Aaron). All in all it was a good time.

I've been missing my baby girl this week as I have been working full-time while someone else (though they are nice and well-qualified) has been taking care of her. Today as I dropped her off at daycare, kissed her goodbuy and then walked out the door she started screaming/crying. This is the first time she has done this when I left and it broke my heart. I almost cryed all the way to work. I have to just keep telling myself that hopefully this is just short term and before long I will be spending all my time at home with my baby. I'm having a bad day and am so glad that it is Friday.

It's off to work I go

Well, I'm back working full-time. While it's hard to get used to and I would much rather be home with my baby girl, I find solice knowing that it won't be long term (probably 1.5 years at the longest) and the extra money will definitely be helpful. My evenings are more focused on Eva now because I haven't been with her all day and picking her up from daycare is the highlight of my day.

I wanna be like....

Here's a pic of Mike playing tennis while wearing Aaron on his back when Aaron was a baby and a pic of Aaron playing tennis while wearing Eva on his back. How cute!

Time flies!

Our beautiful baby girl is now 9 months old! I miss my tiny baby but at the same time I love all the new fun things she learns every day. Here are a couple of recent pics. If you look closely at the second one you can see her two bottom teeth. :)
