We haven’t posted in a long, long, long time but I’m going to try out this new idea. I’m just going to post a few sentences here and there about the funny, adorable, crazy things Eavan does. She changes so fast and makes me laugh, smile and want to pull my hair out everyday and I don’t want to forget why. Here goes:

She asks for the “dance song”, aka Call Me Maybe, in the car every day and proceeds to sing all the words she can keep up with, which consists of the phrases “wind blowin”, “miss so bad” and “at baby” and the words “kiss”, “you” and “maybe”. Otherwise she is bobbing her head and trying desperately to keep up.

Eavan had a blast this Halloween. During the day she went with her babysitter and her best buddy to a local schools Halloween Parade.


Then it was off for the new adventure of trick-or-treating! It only took her about 3 houses to get the hang of it and soon enough she was running behind her cousin Colin taking candy from strangers and thanking them with a gleeful "BYEBYE!" as she torn off to the next house. Smashing success!




Road Trip! by stegaliu

Just a few shots from our road trip to Atlanta to visit the Fowlkes and new baby John.

Backseat sitting for multiple (read: hundred) readings of Kailan’s Super Happy Heart Book made mommy’s heart less than super happy.

Virginia Beach camping.  Eavan was a champ but she didn’t understand the whole “it’s ok to not sleep in your crib” thing.

We were totally unsuccessful at getting a photo of all three cousins smiling and looking at the camera.  This was just one of many cute failures.

Our last night in town we had a lovely time at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.  They have this great event where they set up bars all over the garden so you can have drinks while you let the kiddies run wild.  That’s Eli, Carter and John in the center way ahead with Eavan chasing after them.  Thomas and I (and Patrick phototaking) hung back with our drinks.  Who are the smart ones here?

More pics to come soon via Patrick.

Fourth of July! by stegaliu

Long time, no posts. School has totally sucked me in and there has been no time for posting. Everyone who reads this is on FB anyway so sometimes it’s easy to justify not posting things since you are going to see them elsewhere. As Patrick said to me yesterday, “Winter was all about stress. Spring was all about change. Summer is all about exhaustion.” he then promptly fell asleep on the couch. Eavan is growing like a weed, talking up a storm and climbing on EVERYTHING! If I was a betting woman I’d say we have a rock climber on our hands. She’s certainly become quite the little adventurer and I’m sure that this winter when her uncles get her on a snowboard we are going to be in serious trouble.

Eavan is also having adorable nonsensical conversations with herself, her toys, her dogs and while reading books. Often she tells the dogs to “sit!”, says “good boy”, asks for “daddy” (no longer dada), and demands her “nanas” for breakfast. She’s progressed to full on running everywhere she goes and her little bow legs are the cutest things ever (though they look like they are straightening out). We thought she had fully recovered from her eye surgery in April but just this weekend a little stitch granuloma popped up on her eyelid so we are hoping that goes away without having to go back to surgery.

So that’s that. Things seem to be settling down and we were able to relax over the holiday weekend in Seaside Park courtesy of Amy and Nick. Hopefully I’ll be able to post a little more now that I found the WordPress app for my iPad. We shall see!


An Update (about all these updates) by stegall

Due to a glitch involving me and the WordPress app on my phone (specifically, my inability to correctly use it) a bunch of posts I thought I’d done since January hadn’t actually been published.  Well now they have, in no particular order.  Some of these may be duplicates, but I hope enjoy this quick look back a few months.

I did such good job recovering from surgery that mom and dad put together the learning tower Mama Helen got me. I’m already baking!
