Evelynn and the Ball

So Evelynn, our beloved daughter, still doesn’t want to walk.  If you try to make her walk she yells and screams at you and tell you that you are a bad parent.  This is not because of lack of skills.  Check out the video below, where you will see that she is able to pick up a ball that is as large as she is and wave it around in the air while she is standing.  She must have got that stubborn streak from her aunts and uncles, because it certainly isn’t anything we’ve taught her.

P.S.  I also think it is cute how she spins around on her bottom.

P.P.S.  If you are having difficulty playing the video (which is in Ogg Theora format) try using Firefox 4 or VLC.


Here are some pictures of Evelynn crawling.  She is facinated by the baby on the Huggies box.

I also have two videos:

Crawling – Evelynn is motivated by anything that is shiny and electronic.

Long Crawling – This is a long video of Evelynn showing off all her moves.

Happy Baby

This picture was taken on April 30, when she was still small enough to twist around in the swing.  Now she is too big to even fit in it.


Happy baby!
