Patriotic Baby

Too busy here to write much, but here are some cute pics of Evie in her 4th of July weekend clothes.

(Anyone know how to photoshop out the glare on my glasses?) A rare family photo:
Thursday we went to the library for a special program about Civil War era music. Evie bopped and clapped along, but melted down and needed a nap before it was over. An hour? Too long for 9-month-olds:

Playing on Friday:

Evie's 4th of July weekend Sunday dress (forgot to remove the bib):

I love her smile so much!--

Hanging with some church buddies:

We didn't see fireworks this year because Evie wouldn't have tolerated being out that late, but we didn't mind missing them.
Evie's latest shenanigans: climbing through the dog doors, pointing for the first time on Sunday and becoming a picky eater. J also installed a baby swing on our screened porch (for the consistent shade it provides as compared to a tree) and Evie loves it. Pics to follow.


  1. shoot me the pic- I'll see what I can do :)

  2. She is getting so big! I can't believe she's already 9 months old!

  3. Wow! Look at that wardrobe! She's so cute. I just love all the bows and girly stuff you put her in! :)

  4. what is that fun looking activity table behind the one she's standing at?! I love her patriotic outfits!

  5. +Brooke: I'm sending it in a minute, thanks!

    +LanguageArtsLady and Ashley: thanks!!

    +Chapell3: it's a Playdough Imagination Station table that I found at a thrift shop for $3. Seriously, $3. It doesn't have all of the little attachments that are supposed to be with it, but it is a great sturdy little all-purpose table and I've started letting her scribble with fat crayons on scrap office paper. It's the perfect height for that.

  6. My bro in law and his wife are always leaving the bib on our niece in all her pics and it drives me nuts! ;)
    But I'll let it slide with you this one time...

  7. +Yaya: if you would ever meet Evie and see how much she spits up, you would get it! :)

  8. OMG the bows!!! Love them! :) So adorable.

  9. Love E's wardrobe these days...she looked so cute in the stars and stripes ensemble!

  10. super adorable! hope you guys had a nice weekend! ours was great.

  11. I jsut want to pinch those little cheeks!

  12. Sooo cute! And I just saw your twitter update-congrats on walking Evie!! And Karen, life as you know it is over...:)

  13. Her outfits are SO ADORABLE! And, the family pic is wonderful. =)

    (Do you find that Evie (and Snippet) have these incredible wardrobes, while we're still slumping around in stained-up tees? So not fair...)
