Lots to report. 11/03/2009
I know it's been nearly a month since I posted anything, and it's not because nothing has been happening - I promise. Today Evy is in her 4th week of 6 months, and I can report (since we went to the doctor's yesterday and everything was measured) that she's 26.2 inches tall & weighs 17.02 pounds. She's almost sitting up unassisted, but not quite. No visible teeth, but she has begun to teethe. No crawling - but I'm not surprised because they say that sitting up LEADS to crawling. No solid foods yet - but that's going to change very soon.
Since my last post I can report that Evy began to sleep well again, so that's been nice. We decided to try some rice cereal - but I think we got off to a bad start so we haven't tried since we failed. Just recently she's begun to teethe (nothing visible yet, but I can feel it) so she was running a fever and having some wakeful nights. Daylight Savings Time has ended, and Evy's adjusting pretty well to it. We've been trying to get a highchair for about a month, but haven't decided on anything because my sister has one she'd like to give us - it just needs a new cover - which I have to pick up from a warehouse. I have plans to go tomorrow though and I'm excited to get her sitting up regularly and starting on solid foods.
The day before Halloween we went to a pumpkin patch and picked up some small pumpkins for the kiddos. Halloween itself was a bit of a bust. That was one of the days that Evy wasn't feeling well, so even though we had plans to go to my parents house and use their backyard to get some nice family pictures, Evy wasn't happy and the photos showed. She also was running a fever so putting her in a flannel cow costume, for longer than a few minutes, was out of the question. We did get one or two nice pictures, and of course a picture of her in her costume.
So, it's been an eventful October, and with MORE holidays around the corner I'm hoping I'll be posting more.
