Precious Moments with Evangelle

Just wanted to stop in to provide you with a little photo update of Evangelle’s progress at home. She’s doing wonderfully and continues to keep us smiling and laughing throughout the day.

Each morning when she wakes up, I pull her into bed with me in the hope that I can convince her we both need more sleep. For some reason, I’ve been unsuccessful in my endeavors, but I’ll keep trying. 

Evangelle is turning into quite the little copycat. From blowing kisses, to clapping, to clicking her tongue, if Mommy does it, Evangelle can try to do it too.

She enjoys saying da-da-da-da and ma-ma-ma-ma. I like to think she enjoys talking about her Mommy and Daddy, but it’s probably more likely that she just likes the way those particular syllables feel on her tongue.

Since she’s gumming more and more objects, I’m pretty sure Evangelle’s working on filling in some of the empty space in her toothless mouth. With the advent of teething on its way, the days ahead may prove to be slightly more challenging, but as of now, Joseph and I are still wondering how in the world we got such a happy baby!

Here a few pics of her recent activities…

Playing with the handmade ball we brought home from Ethiopia

Checking out the train that daddy played with as a child

Thumb-sucking is a sure sign it’s time for a nap!

Such a curious little girl! She loves exploring her surroundings.

Ready for her bedtime bottle!
