Evelyn {10 Months}

So the problems with backposting these updates with a 3rd child is
1) My memory doesn't go past 5 minutes ago
2) My memory is all that I've got b/c I have failed miserably at putting pen to paper and documenting Evelyn's first year.  Sorry kid.

Eat: Every day is a bit different at school, but we nurse in the morning and then she takes around 15-20 ounces at school. She essentially eats everything that we eat.  We never did baby food and went to large chunks of food around 6.5-7 months, now we are able to cut it up into bite size pieces.
Sleep: Nothing has changed here- Hmm, again- you never know with this girl.  She's almost always asleep by 630pm and wakes by 630-645. Since Evelyn's naps at school aren't so great, we try to get her to bed early, sometimes as even early as 545. Most days she has one 1-1.5 hour nap or two 30-45 minute naps. On a bad nap day, she might fall asleep on the way home from school. At home she will take ~2hr morning nap(2 hours after waking) and an ~1.5 hour afternoon nap (3 hours after waking from 1st nap)
Shoes: Size 2-3 but we never wear them
Clothes: 12 months+
Diapers: Size 4's and 5's.  I like the 5s better for night time
Trips: We did Easter up at my parents.
Likes: throat gurgling, standing at the window by the door at school so that she can see out the hallway, waving hi and bye, babababababababa all the way home, walking along the fireplace (neither of the older girls did this...ever!), eating dum-dums
Dislikes: sleeping through the night, when Emmy picks her up with a choke hold, wearing sunglasses or shoes
Milestones: lots of crawling to an object and then pulling herself up, waving, just starting to cruise along objects
Health: Another ear infection, imagine that. Saw the ENT on 4/23 and had tubes put in that next morning.  Isn't our ENT awesome?  She failed her hearing test in, if she were an adult- she would need hearing aids.
Other: Her nose is always snotty, her ears are always full, her daytime sleep tank is always empty- but this girl is happy.  We are so blessed by this little smiley.  The big girls love her so much and even though their approach isn't always the most effective, they want to be helping/entertaining her all the time!
