7 Quick Takes

1 ~ Evelyn's favorite new place to play in the dining room. It's hardwood floor and she can scoot herself all over the place and thinks it's great fun. She is quite content to play for at least an hour, all by herself, just scooting herself around from one toy to another.

2 ~ Evelyn only took 2 naps yesterday for the first time in her life. It went really well and she ended up sleeping 12 1/2 hours last night! It was wonderful!

3 ~ I can't say that 26 feels any different that 25 (it was my birthday on Sunday).

4 ~ On Sunday we're supposed to have some beautiful weather. I'm hoping it's nice enough to take Evelyn to the park for the first time. I know, I know, kind of a dorky first time parent thing to take a 5 1/2 month old to the park and it will only be made worse by the fact that we will probably bring the camera and video camera. :)

5 ~ I'm reading way too many books right now. I'm currently working through "Healing the New Childhood Epidemics", "Epicenter", "Created to Be His Helpmeet", "How to Raise a Healthy Child in Spite of Your Doctor", and "A New Kind of Christian" (only for a book club, I would NOT recommend it).

6 ~ I found the cutest doll house that I want to get for Evelyn to play with as she gets a little older. It's so fun. It's wooden and has all this adorable furniture you can get to go with it. It even has a little fake garden that has holes that the vegetables can be planted in! So fun!

7 ~ Evelyn also has a new favorite kind of toy. I got her one because she seems to like to chew on her wooden toys the best. They're called Sassy Earth Brights. She has the wooden trio one so far, but I hope to get her a couple more so she can teethe on them.

Have a great weekend and as Pastor Steve always a blessing!


  1. yay for 7 quick takes! isn't it fun?! i love reading about your life...although it makes me miss you so much. we are supposed to be doing all these mom things together! :(
    i have a few books i'm reading now, but when i come back to one, i have to reread a few pages, so i know what i'm reading!
    where do you get all your books from? amazon? library?
    miss you!

  2. If they have them at the library I get them from there. The nice thing is that if the book is at any of the KC libraries, they will transfer it to the library that's closest to us for me to borrow! woo hoo! If they don't have it then I look for them used online.

    I so wish we could do all this mom business together too! I'm so glad to hear about your house though! Yay!
