Eva's Kiddie Pool

Today was Evita's first time in her kiddie pool. It was actually a little chilly out because of the clouds but she still liked it. Gotta keep her used to that water!

This is my first time linking-up with The Paper Mama for one of her photo challenges.

This week's theme is happiness, and my baby has been showing us her first attempts at laughing lately so I thought I'd share a picture of her doing so. Melts my heart. ♥

The Paper Mama Photo Challenge

My 25th Birthday

I had a great birthday yesterday. I woke up and cuddled with Eva for a while. I cleaned the house a bit but was for the most part lazy all day. I didn't get any schoolwork done or do anything productive, which I slightly regret since finals are quickly approaching. I received some beautiful flowers from my mama: 

When Daniel came home he gave me my gift. It was a My Book cloud so that I could backup all my pictures, movies, and music (and have the extra storage space since my MacBook is almost full). I'm stoked. I can also put all the pictures I take of Eva in a folder that my family has access to back in Texas. We'll also have access from our T.V. and phones. Pretty neat. Right after that we went to Dave  & Busters during happy hour where we ate dinner and I enjoyed a mango margarita and a couple of jack & cokes. I really wanted to play Deal or No Deal, but I was a bit disappointed with some changes they made to the game. Instead of playing for 1,000 tickets you can only play for up to 600 now and it didn't seem like the machine was paying out. Hah... I'm talking like I'm in Vegas or something. Anyway, we played a few other games and with the tickets we won we bought Eva a purple teddy bear. She didn't seem to care about it, but oh well. She loved looking around everywhere in D&B at all the lights and sounds. She probably thought, "this is even better than my crib!" When we got home we watched a couple of episodes of "Up All Night." We were looking for a new TV series to get sucked into so we gave it a try and it's alright. We ended up switching to the new Ultimate Fighter episode, though. All in all, I had a great day. :)

Eva: Week 7

You are staying awake during the day more than ever. You love looking around at all the decorations around our house. You want to be carried around so she can check it all out, but I don't mind. I just put you in the wrap and tote you around. You have had trouble going down for naps sometimes. You play this game with her chupie. You deliberately spit it out and then whine to have it back in. You stay content for a few minutes and then spit it out again. It's not every time, just when you're really fighting sleep, I think. You've been a really happy baby, though. Lots and lots of smiles and laughs. The best thing in the world is when you look at me or her daddy and just smile. We no longer have to make weird voices or jingle her toys to make you smile (although you still love that, too). I love my little baby so much! This week you went to the Kid's Club in the gym while I worked out. You did really good every time and they said you didn't cry at all so I'm stoked about that. You're going to be seeing a lot of gym's Kid's Clubs in your lifetime.

Eva Day by Day:

-Blowing bubbles with drool
-First time at the Kid's Club at the gym with mama.
-Slept 6 hours! (Only one night, though. Probably a fluke.)
