One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

First Cereal

Evelyn had her first cereal on Friday afternoon. She has been sleeping through the night (8PM until 6AM) since she was about 3 months old (lucky, I know). Just this past week she has been waking up hungry in the middle of the night. We are hoping the cereal will put a stop to that. I am starting to miss my sleep a little bit. She is slowly learning to eat from a spoon -- but Travis is much better at getting her to eat than I am.

Evelyn also started making "motorboat" noises. She blows air between her lips to make the vibrating sound. It is super funny! She does it all day long! It has made the feeding a bit harder though... Trav was feeding her cereal tonight and once in a while she would do that into the spoon and splatter food all over the place. She thought it was hysterical, of course. And just now -- when I was giving her the last feeding of the day, she was up to it again. When she was getting full, she would make her motorboat noises against my boob. I was trying not to have too much of a reaction -- I didn't want to get her too excited before bed, but it was pretty darn funny. She also was making the noises in her crib when we put her down for bed -- the girl is addicted -- she doesn't want to stop!

Those noises are the best. It sucks though when you are feeding her and the food goes all over you. You almost have to wear a rain

The last pic of her smiling is great. I see you in the last pic!!!

I agree with Kara, she looks a lot like you in the last pic!

once they figure out how to make sounds, they love hearing their own voice. it's funny. that is a cute picture of you two on the plane. as for the p.preg. hair-loss, I don't remember for myself, however, I notice that once a year, my hair thins out a little and then it goes back to normal. I think it has to do w/ hormones.
