Oh my little Evelyn. She makes me laugh every day. As I type this she is upstairs "napping". While trying to fall asleep she's singing to herself and cracking me up. The picture above was taken this morning. She let me know that she needed my pump so that she could pump na-na milk for her baby. When she finished she asked me for a bag to put it in.

This photo was taken yesterday. Yes, she's wearing the same shirt. She slept in it too. When this girl gets hooked on an outfit it doesn't come off until she's has made a mess of it. She's showing off her prized acorn. You think it's hard to find a favorite stuffed animal for a child when they misplace it; try having a child who is in love with an ACORN. An acorn that she likes to throw all over the house and then go hunting for it. Ugh. She threw it down the grate in the entry way last night and I can't find it nor get it out. I let her know that daddy would help her get it. Hee hee...
Earlier in the day yesterday we headed to Costco. I told Evelyn to get ready to go and this is what she decided she needed. Pink snow boots and daddy's hat. She wore that hat the whole time we were in the store even though it kept covering her eyes. Like I said, she finds something she likes and don't even try to convince her to wear something else.
She loves to put on Annabelle's clothes. Here she is running away from me trying to take a picture of her in Annabelle's onesie.

5 Months

My beautiful Annabelle is 5 months old today!

Weight: 16 lbs. 7 oz.
Height: I'll have to measure her after nap time
Clothing Size: 6-12 months

Sleep: She's into a regular routine! She wakes up in the morning around 7:00 and is down for her first nap at 9:00. She sleeps about an hour and a half. She's then up until 1:00 when she goes down for nap #2 and sleeps until about 3:30. She's down for the night at 7:00. She's up once in the night for a snack.

What she's up to: Sitting unassisted, pulling up onto all fours (yikes!), and scooting backward all over the house. She loves the hard wood!

Here she made it out of the living room and around the corner to the hallway!

So proud of her new skill.

Behind her in that last picture are Evelyn and her friend Ally Rae. Evelyn is the one wearing pink zebra-print pajama pants. It's the middle of the afternoon. She's in an "I will dress myself and pick out my own clothes" phase right now. If you attempt to touch her while she is dressing herself go ahead and plug your ears for the shrill scream and protest of, "I do by self!" Oh my. We're working on her response to help while at the same time letting her have some independence in this as she has gotten quite good at putting on her own clothes. Here's what she came down in one day. Note the summer skirt and three shirts. She has quite the sense of style.

And because I can't help but take pictures of sister they are on our bed this morning.
