Me llamo Rocky

Someone's In A Hurry To Grow Up

We had a fun week, starting Wednesday, when my great friend Brooke came to visit from Colorado.  She was here for a wedding, but gave me the pleasure of staying a night at our house.  We were very excited to see her, not only because it had been since October, but also because she got to meet Eva for the first time!  As soon as Brooke got the opportunity, she grabbed Eva and gave her some love, and as you can see, Eva accepted :)

While Brooke was here, she managed to share her love with everyone, including...yup, you guessed it, Mr. Rocky.  He showed no restraint in cuddling with her in the morning.

Not only was she giving out love, but Brooke also used her magic powers to get Eva to do another first!!  Ladies and Gentlemen, Eva rolled over!!  Can you believe it?  She tried for so long and was getting so frusterated, and finally she flipped her leg over and gave all her might and finally rolled from her back to her belly.  It was so amazing to watch her accomplish her goal.  The next morning, Brooke sat with her and she did it again!  The sad thing is, I have yet to see her do it again, now that Brooke is gone.  Brooke must be the "baby whisperer".  Ha!  I'm sure she'll be back at it in no time.

Aside from Brooke, Eva also got to meet my friend and old Typhoon manager, Bryant.  Bryant and his wife, Faa, have a daughter, 3, so we have been sharing daughter moments with each other...And now, Bryant and Faa are also expecting twin boys in a few shorts weeks. (Eva was sleeping and opened her eyes right when I took the pic, otherwise Bryant would've been holding her)

On Friday, we took Eva in for her doctor's check up.  We got lots of good news.  One, she is starting to grow very fast lengthwise.  There was no surprise there, but happy to hear she is growing.  Two, she is teething!  Yup, the doctor pointed out that Eva's bottom teeth are starting to grow in.  I haven't seen anything pop up yet, but it would explain why she likes to bite down on everything.  She even leaves marks on my hands when she bites down.

I see so many changes in her demenour every day, I love it all.  She is becoming more of a cuddle-bug, where she use to only want to be held facing out.  She is starting to use her voice for more than crying.  But, one thing has never changed, she still gets the biggest smile on her face every time she sees or hears her daddy.
