1. Momma had to get on a train for New York this morning, which meant leaving this gorgeous girl for a couple of days. She refused to get out of her owl shirt (due to her owl obsession), even though we wanted to dress in her something else.

  2. Dad makes Eva different breakfasts every morning because she likes variety in her meals. She’s a great eater but enjoys new and different food each day. So today he made her an oatmeal buffet, so Eva could do the toppings herself.

  3. Play date with Friend Trinity! Eva and Trinity have known one another since Eva was just eight weeks old. Even though their heights are the same, Trinity is three — a year older than Eva. So Trinity just loved showing Eva all her toys and hugging on her. These girls were well-matched in energy and physicality, the perfect kind of play date for Eva. Play date with Friend Trinity!

  4. Bang trim day with Carlos! Eva goes to Carlos for her bang trim every four to five weeks, so she knows him well enough that when Momma told her we were going to haircut, Eva yelled, “CAR-ROH! CAR-ROH!” She was really excited to her all trimmed up.

  5. Eva roots for the Oranje! Eva joined Mom and Dad in attending a World Cup 3rd place game-watching party on Saturday, in which she mainly just flopped around the floor and acted goofy while the rest of us watched the game. But she was definitely on the side of the Dutch, since Mom/Dad got married there and Oma/Opa lived in Holland for five years. It’s hard to believe this girl is not even two years old… she looks so grown up.

  6. We were surrounded by great photographers during the Jamaica trip, and our pal Emily from Chicago just put up a set of photos on her site, showcasing what her camera caught while so many friends were together on the island. There’s definitely a few of Eva. (photo by Emily Cummings)

  7. Texas! Even though Eva wasn’t born there, mom and dad have been teaching her all about Texas since she was just a newborn. So of course the only state she can identify on a map so far is…

  8. Family photo on our rocky Jamaican beach. This is on a cove, which sits atop a coral reef. That’s where our friends Drew and Yolanda got married at 7am on Saturday morning, so Eva got up early with us to attend a gorgeous ceremony with the sea as the backdrop. (Photo by old friend Steve Boyle

  9. On our last full day in Jamaica, Eva went to the famous Seven-Mile beach in Negril. She and mom both got stung by jellyfish. After a brief freak out, Eva was smiling (and climbing) again.

  10. Hello from Eva’s beach vacation in Little Bay, Jamaica. This is the first time Eva’s been able to actually walk into the ocean by herself, since last year when we visited the Mediterranean she was only six months old. Eva got knocked down by the tide yesterday and got her bottom all sandy, so she doesn’t love the beach yet. We’re going to have to keep encouraging her to get in the water.
