Our sweet Evangeline Grace has been growing like crazy this past month. 15.5 pounds! Before I know it she will be outgrowing her 6 month clothing. Evangeline has started to really squirm and kick her legs. (By the way I am in love with her adorable, fat, chubby legs!) We now have to buckle her into her swing and bouncy seat for fear that she will fall out. :) Eva has yet to roll over yet but I think that day is dawning near. Every time I put her on a blanket I find myself watching her like a hawk just so I don’t miss her first time rolling over! This past month she took her first road trip to Arkansas to visit her grandparents. We left right after church on a Sunday and made it in 12 hours! (It usually takes 10 hours so this was really fast.) I”m hoping Evangeline will continue to be a great little traveler.
The past few weeks have been really difficult with Evangeline. She ended up with RSV which was just plain bad. I am so thankful that we didn’t have to be admitted to the hospital. We were monitored closely by Evangeline’s pediatrician and were able to rent a nebulizer to use at home which helped so much. I cleared my calendar for about 2 weeks and just held my sweet girl all day long. Now that she is feeling better she is sleeping well again. Hooray! Evangeline usually sleeps from about 11pm to 9am or so with one early morning feed. She sleeps great at night but is horrible at taking a nap! She is the cat nap queen and such a little social butterfly. It doesn’t seem to matter if we keep the house super quiet Evangeline just will not sleep longer than 15-20 minutes. Any tips or ideas?
Eli continues to thoroughly enjoy being a big brother. Most of the time he is so sweet to her and honestly such a help to me keeping her entertained. Last week I did find him dragging her around the living room floor on a blanket at break neck speeds last week!
