Little Eva

April 29th, 2010

Eva had her four month appointment on Monday. She weighs 12 pounds and 14 ounces and is 23 inches long. This puts her in the 25th percentile for weight and 10th for height. This means 75 percent of babies this age weigh more and 90 percent are taller. She is definitely on the smaller side!

So it appears as though she and Ella are going to be very different physically. Sometimes I have trouble lifting Ella. She is tall for a 3-year-old. And she’s got my husband’s brown skin, brown hair and hazel eyes. Eva may have a tint of red in her hair, has milky white skin and bright blue eyes.

To me this is very exciting that they are so different. Can’t wait to see more of her personality to see if that will be just as different!

Sneak peek – girls get photos taken

April 21st, 2010

I thought Eva would be the tough one but it was Ella who would NOT smile for photos. I mean it was really like she forgot how. She just looked at us like we were crazy the entire time, we even bribed her with a Polly Pockets doll. And Eva, on the other hand, was all smiles.

But I have learned that this business of getting children’s pictures taken is not always perfect. And it’s not for the weak. There’s a lot of waiting and a lot of sales pitches to sit through while your kids are tired and hungry and sick of the whole thing.

But the girls still look gorgeous.

The week in pictures

April 14th, 2010

I just realized it’s only Tuesday night and I’m posting a “week in pictures.” But we’ve stayed home the last two days and it kinda feels like it’s been a week. Here are some highlights:

Eva tried on a new Pacers outfit.

Ella put on a puppet show – it mimics one we saw at the library, about a fox trying to get grapes.
We didn’t have a fox.

Eva had some tummy time.

She rolls on her back now, but can’t get on her tummy.

The girls pose for a photo.

It was warm enough for shorts yesterday!

Eva’s starting to enjoy Ella’s entertainment.

Ella took this picture.

Propped up, Eva can sit in her highchair.
