It's been a month!

An update for my loyal reader. *Gems*
Evie has had a very busy month! She has done some excellent growing and is now about 10 lbs. At the beginning of May, she was brave enough to go and get her two-month-old shots. Sadly, her mom was not, and sent her dad and grandma instead. Yes, I'm a coward.

Also, on May 17th, Evie was blessed at her grandparents' house. Her grandma found her a beautiful gown in Nashville and she looked gorgeous. Bryan gave her a lovely blessing...he did such a nice job!
Evie, though, was woken from her nap early and knew something different was going on. She reacted accordingly:

Fortunately, though, her grandpa took her for a walk by the creek and jogged her around the backyard so that by the time her big moment arrived, she looked like this:

She recovered just in time and behaved very well for the rest of her event. We are so grateful for all the family and friends who were part of our very special day. Thank you all! We are very blessed to have so much family so close.

  Also noteworthy, Evie's becoming a very good sleeper.  She hasn't woken up for a middle-of-the-night feeding in over a week now, which has been SO NICE!  And, because of the good weather, she's getting out more and more and starting to discover lots of new things. Her favorites, though, continue to be ceiling fans, any and all lights and windows, and her hands. Oh, and I like to think she likes her mom, too. :-)
