Evan Lilly is 11 months!!!!!

My baby is 11 months! She turned 11 months on the 21st. I guess the fact that she is almost a year old is starting to freak me out! I have no idea where the time went and I have so much to do for her party......

Evan is AWESOME! She likes to test her boundaries but she is still a very good baby. She takes a few steps on her own everyday but still prefers to crawl to get from A to B. She has pretty much transitioned to all table food and I am about to start the whole weaning off the bottle process. For some reason this terrifies me!! Evan also loves water from her sippy cup. She has recently become a little chatter box and loves to be tickled. Still very close to her four legged brothers and will go to anyone. Although, she has definitely become a little more clingy to me when we are at home, but I'm not complaining! I am going to take it while I can! I LOVE the fact that her face lights up when Chris or I walk into a room. She still babbles "ma ma" and "da da" which is so sweet to my ears. We read together every night and her favorite book is Good Night Moon! 

These pictures were EXTRA special because Yaya was in town! She is trying to lay all of E's fly aways down in this pic! HEHE

And here she is making sure E doesn't fly out of the chair!

Of course Ms. Evan can not sit still and wants to stand in the chair again!!

And just for fun..... :) Here is a little sneak peek of Evan's birthday invitation!!!!

My Random Thoughts......

I still have very high hopes for my blog, but I just can't find the time!!!!! How do you mommies do it?!?!?! It's always on my to do list but always gets pushed to side when I have to prioritize. However, I am hoping this will change tonight! I wanted to start a blog to have something to look back at our memories, so I am DETERMINED.... It will be on the top of my to do list! (I make lists ALL the time....Sometimes a few times a day! Just a random fact about me)

My mom is on her way!!!! I am so excited because my mom is coming to town late tonight. I am also thankful because it is making me stay up and check things off my list! She is coming in town because my grandfather is having a minor surgery tomorrow. Our family would appreciate any prayers! She is also excited to see Ms. Evan Lilly!!! We haven't seen my parents since Christmas and E has already grown and learned so much. It is extremely difficult living so far away but makes us REALLY appreciate the time we have together!

This was my parents with E on Christmas Day! They had just flown in!!

Well.......... Evan Lilly of course! She is almost 11 months and I am having so much fun with her. This is a picture at our local Mexican restaurant on Valentines night. We had a family dinner date and then a Target run.....very exciting! I know!!

I am officially 31! We had an absolute blast celebrating with our friends this past Saturday night! (maybe a little too much fun...) I didn't take a single pic, which is NOT like me. However, my friend Rachel got this one of some of the girls who came from our Sunday School class. I think our house and myself are finally back to normal as of TODAY! Oh and you can see I chopped off my hair!!

Evan Lilly's first birthday is coming up! I am so excited and have been extremely busy planning. It's going to be a circus theme. I am already praying for nice weather. Last March we brought her home in rain and freezing temps. Our house is just too small for all that! Hoping it is nice and we can use our backyard. Plus the moon bounce is booked! Somethings are starting to come in the mail and it is getting surreal to think my baby is almost ONE!

Don't want to post any pics on this one just yet......

RANDOM THOUGHT #6 (LAST one I promise)
I am missing the husband. He is out of town for business and things have been so hectic lately! I feel like I haven't seen him in forever. Hoping for a good ole fashion date night when he returns this weekend. Luckily, mom is in town so we have a live in nanny!

Holy smokes! We gotta take more pictures just the two of us!!! This was us being silly a couple months ago on a mommy and daddy's night out. I could go on with more random thoughts but I'll hold them for a later blog post ;-)
