Me llamo Rocky

Eva, Eva, Eva

Since I didn't make the time to blog last week, I have many updates to share about Miss Eva.  She is growing strong and well and soon approaching 2 months!  We had her weighed last week, coming in at 9 lbs 7oz.  So, she is growing wonderfully.  She will see her doctor this Thursday to get another weight, height, and health check up, along with her first immunizations. 

Eva has been making her way through my friends, meeting everyone and showing off her cuteness.  A couple weeks ago, my friend, Carrie, and her son, Cole, came by to meet her.

Cole was actually born last Thanksgiving, so we missed out on his birthday party this year due to our own delivery...so, we gave him his gift when he stopped over.  Just like every 1 year old boy, he liked his toy, but also liked everything else that he could grab on to.  I think he was just showing me all the areas that needed some child proofing.  Thank you for helping me out, Cole :)  The cutest thing, though, was his gentle touch to Eva.  He gently pet her on the head when Carrie was holding her.  It was the cutest thing ever!  I'm pretty sure he was just letting her know that he can't wait for her to grow up a little so he could be her boyfriend ( I wish I could've got a picture of that, wasn't quick with the camera)  ;)

In other Eva news, she is starting to smile quite a bit.  Whenever I look at her while changing her diaper, I say "Eva, Eva, Eva" and most of the time, I can get a little smile out of her. The most guaranteed time to see the smiles is when daddy approaches.  It is the cutest thing ever.  I can almost promise you that he will be the first to make her giggle, too.  There is nothing like daddy with his daughter.  They already have such a special relationship.  In fact, we were out at a birthday party last weekend (I will blog about it next) and one of the women there saw Dana holding Eva and said "Wow, he seems pretty comfortable with her already".  I said, "Of course!  He is the best daddy ever.  He even changed all of her diapers for the first 3 days.  He is amazing with her."  

Here is what one of those smiles looks like:

And, here is when she is really excited:

We've also been having fun with Eva...like playing airplane.

And, trying out a piggy back ride, holding on to Daddy's hair while he works hard.
