Pantry Raid

Evelyn's cousin Hannah likes to help her mother in the kitchen. Evy likes to do the opposite.
Pantry Raid

This morning she emptied the better part of the bottom two shelves of the pantry. We think she was drawn in by the big box of Cheerios.

Looking for a Snack

Or maybe she wanted to make some cupcakes.

Or maybe she was just having fun throwing things around the kitchen.

Snow Angel

This winter has been an unusually mild one for the Pittsburgh area. It hasn't been very cold and snowflakes have been few and far between. Evelyn hasn't even had the chance to try out her new snowsuit until today - when it snowed an entire 1/4 of an inch.

Snow Bunny

Evy made the bottom half of a mini snow angel before trying to crawl away. She even managed to catch a snowflake on her nose.


All this in a matter of four minutes.

Steph was getting cold. She doesn't have a snowsuit.

Car Show

The front window in our living room is only about eighteen inches off the floor. This means that Evelyn can pull herself up on the windowsill and look outside. She likes to watch the cars and trucks drive by.
Car Game

She makes "vroom, vroom" noises on her way to the window, while she's waiting for a car, and when she finally sees one. Actually, her noises sound more like a motorcycle or a monster truck than a Ford Taurus. Have a listen:

She has a great time but the spit spray creates a bit of a mess. Can you tell the car show has become one of her favorite activities?

At the Window

We also play the color game with the cars that pass out front. Each vehicle is worth one point. Here is the breakdown by player:

Evelyn: silver/grey
Steph: green
Me: all other colors

I got to pick last.

Return Of The Spike

Many people have remarked that they miss the way Evy's hair used to stand up.

Don't worry. It can still defy gravity.

It just needs a little help now.
