6 Month Check Up...

It's hard to believe that Evelyn is already 6 months old! Yesterday was her 6 month check up with the pediatrician. She weighed in at 14lbs 14 oz and has grown 2 inches and is now 26inches long. She showed off her skills by sitting up unsupported, grabbing at the doctors stethoscope, and babbling lots! He agrees that the nystagmus in her eyes has improved and was very happy that all of the test we had run with the specialists had come back with all normal results. She had 5 shots yesterday which she was not thrilled about but as always handled it like a big girl waiting until after all of them had been given to cry! A dose of Tylenol and a good nap and she was back to her happy self.

Its Official...

I am officially the neighborhood crazy cat lady, as soon as I saw this I had to have it! Even hubby who thinks i'm nuts already for feeding 5 stray cats outside had to admit that this cat was pretty cool! At least this one doesn't poop in the yard!

Nothing to Post...

It has been an incredibly slow week around here, hence why i haven't posted in a while. It rained for the entire weekend so our biggest excitement was a trip to Sullivan's Island to eat at Poe's. There really is nothing better than their fish tacos! I suppose my biggest excitement is that Evelyn can manage to sit up for a few seconds before she topples over and yesterday I managed to get her to eat some sweet potatoes! Today's poopy diaper can attest to that! Yikes!!!
On another random tangent, hubby has now decided that he may be interested in buying an airstream camper! Since I have continuously vetoed buying another boat because they are not super practical for infants he thought maybe that it would be nice to have something we could do as a family! As you all know pre baby we liked to travel and go camping post baby its defiantly not as relaxing, that's for sure. I am still on the fence about buying a cramper, but I do see his point. It would be familiar for Evelyn to stay in, less germs for me and its can go anywhere we do in the continental US (and Canada). I have always wanted to go to Niagara Falls... Anyhow we shall see how it all plays out. The only kind of RV that I will agree to is an Airstream because they are so cool looking and not so toxic and plastic like your standard camper but you defiantly pay for it. But who knows hubby may just decide that he can't live without another boat!
Thats all for now! Hope everyone has a great day!

Visit from the grands...

I hope everyone had a good week last week. Things have been somewhat slow around here lately so not much exciting news to post about. Grandma and Grandpa came to babysit for me so I could go to work 2 mornings this week to fill in for someone else. It was kind of nice to go to work and catch up on all of the news with the girls I work with but I was definitely ready to come home to the little one. It is truly a luxury that I am able to stay home with her and not work full time! Thank you hubby!!! While Grandma and Grandpa were here we went to the pumpkin patch to take her Halloween photos and pick out our pumpkin. Grandma and grandpa gave Evelyn her most adorable costume!!! This picture is only a preview photo the rest will be posted officially on Halloween! I know, I'm a dork like that! This was the first time the grands had babysat and they swear that she behaved herself but who knows what really happened while we were gone?!
While the grands were here we also had a nice dinner out at The Mustard Seed. Yummy! Mom was shocked that we would be brave enough to take a 5 month old out to eat since you never know when you may have a meltdown but she did very well. I think it helped that we ate at 5:30 with all of the old folks! Her hour of sour tends to start around 7pm these days! Anyhow, that's about all of the excitement around here. Thanks to grandma and grandpa for baby sitting and we hope that she didn't wear you out to bad!
