Can ya’ll believe it? Our little birdie is 15 weeks old. I just love these pictures we took the other day. She was happy to dress up in a new onesie from Grandma Ellen (check out the Boston Terrier that looks just like our own Leyla Jane!) and ADORABLE handmade beanie from her Aunt Cheryl. Don’t you just love Grandma’s and Auntie’s? Everly thinks they are the cat’s pajamas. Here’s a little look into the world of 15-Week-Olds these days:
Milestones: Talking, using those hands, and big, jolly, belly laughs! We’ve been getting little tastes of this lately, but just the other day it’s as if a switch went off and things have really shown improvement. Everly loves laughing at her Mama, reaching out and touching Daddy’s face, and grabbing everything she can and trying to take a big gobble out of it!
Sleeping habits: Evie is still getting up a few times for a couple of feedings, but for the most part we’ve established a schedule and she sleeps from about 8 pm to about 7 am. Mama doesn’t mind getting up with her though – it’s our special time together.
What’s new: We’re so excited to be planning Everly’s baptism, which will be taking place next month at St. Luke the Evangelist. Now, we need to get this little chunker a christening gown and plan a party!
Just around the corner: Everly’s first Thanksgiving! Not that she can enjoy turkey & yams with us, but it’s still a first. And for Marty and I, this Thanksgiving is sentimental because it was Thanksgiving time last year that we told our parents & siblings our little secret about having a bun in the oven.
Looking forward to: We’ll be starting cereal soon and we can’t wait to see her reaction! (Marty and I are big foodies ourselves, so we’re thinking Everly is going to love the stuff as much as we do). Hopefully, we can instill good eating habits in her at an early age.
Until next time, take care!
