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!!" :)

new milestone for Evelyn...

So -- this week Evelyn passed a new milestone. She officially outgrew her old carseat (the Graco carrier). She is long (maybe going to be tall like her daddy?), but she is such a skinny-minny -- we couldn't put her in the new seat until she reached 20 lbs. Wednesday night we tried out her new carseat in the family room before putting it in the car. Evelyn seemed to really like it. We were saying "yay -- you are such a big girl!" -- and she would get the biggest smile and start clapping her hands... it was adorable!!
Here are a few pics:

Here are a couple more pictures of Evelyn. The first one shows her with her Disney Princess rider. She loves to walk behind it and push it around. But I think her favorite thing to do is to open the "trunk" (seat), put toys in there, close the seat, open the seat, take the toys out, and repeat the process over and over again. It cracks me up!I included this picture because it shows that Evelyn is growing hair -- it is starting to fill in more and more -- but she is such a light blonde that her hair doesn't show up much in pictures. Her hair is growing so slow though... at this rate, she is going to be 4 years old before she gets her first ponytail! Oh well...

I have an Evenflo carseat for each of the girls and LOVE it!!! They are big, but easy to use.

Evelyn looks a lot like Trav in the pic with her clapping and then I see a lot of you in the pic next to the toys!!! Give her hugs and kisses from me :)

I just read your comment, my feet grew a full shoe size by the end of my 2nd pregnancy! I had to give all my shoes to my sister and buy new ones:)

I can't believe you got to use the Graco carrier that long - I think Justin was only about 6 months when we had to use the new car seat...I'm jealous that you got to use your carrier for so long!!! It's much more convienient.
