  2. Eva and our 15 year-old beagle have had a rocky relationship, mainly because Saidee has been jealous ever since Eva came home from the hospital. But the two gals are getting along much better these days because Eva is always generous with Saidee and willing to share her snacks. 

  3. Eva’s new nanny, May, started over the weekend. They are already the closest of friends. Today they played with shadows and shapes at the National Building Museum. They’ve also been to the farmers market, the library and eaten out at new restaurants.

  4. Eva’s Aunt Sara came over to play with her today and Eva stole Momma’s sunglasses, as you can see, to pose in a photo before we headed out. Sara couldn’t believe how big our girl has gotten. Eva’s speaking in lots of simple sentences now and generally acting like a ham.

  5. Daddy’s getting an Eva day today as she transitions into a new au pair, who arrives tonight. They went to the mall and PBS! (Momma basically learned everything from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, so we are big fans.)

  6. Eva and her cousins! Pictured with Eva are her cousins from St. Louis — Peyton, AJ and Dylan. They were here to check out DC and play with Eva for the first time. Cousin Peyton took great care of Eva, holding her hand and showing her all the fun animals at the zoo. Eva’s favorite? Giant gorillas, which she likes to imitate by pounding her chest.

  7. Eva’s been cranky pants all weekend because she burnt her tongue on Friday night at dinner, which then led her to accidentally bite her lip and the inside of her mouth. So she has all sorts of little mouth sores which are making it hard for her to eat. She’s still keeping up her social activities though. On Saturday she spent time in a bouncy house and playing plastic “golf” in Friend Sam’s backyard.

  8. Eva’s sweet and adorable second cousins came to visit from St. Louis! This is Peyton, one of Tina’s three kids. Tina is momma’s cousin on her Opa’s side. The family is in DC for the weekend and we’re going to have a lot of fun times together. 

  9. This is the bike trailer that hitches onto Dad’s bike so that Eva can go for rides. She really wanted to go tonight, so she loaded up her book and got into the trailer, not realizing it was bedtime. We’ll have to take you another time, Eva.

  10. Eva takes control at IKEA, even when reaching the cart is a stretch.
