Avila - 8 Months Old

Miss Avila Iron is 8 months old today! Holy smokes... time is going by really fast! 

Avila weighs 22 lbs and is 29 1/2 inches long. She's mainly wearing size 9 month clothing, although the pants are getting a bit short. We have a tall lady! She has 3 teeth, started crawling, pulling up on things, cruising around the furniture, and stood up from sitting position all by herself for the first time today! She says "mama" and is babbling "baba" and "dada" - not exactly sure if "dada" is for Matt or just her figuring out that sound. Avila is a really great eater so far... pretty much eating anything we give her. She's great at picking things up with her finger and thumb and putting in her mouth. She's still a great sleeper and nurser and loves being in the ergo or my arms. She's defiantly a mama's girl! Her little personality is coming through more everyday and we're just loving every minute with our little Avila Iron!

Black Eye: Day 14

It's been 2 weeks since Evelynn had a bit of a run-in with a bench and her black eye is healing really well! All the swelling is gone and the scrape is mostly healed; we're just left with a little green / yellow bruise that's continuing to fade. I'm so impressed by this girl's strength, that was quite a shiner!

Black Eye: Day 8

It's been a week since Evey had a run-in with a bench. She's been such a tough girl, I'm seriously amazed by her strength and bravery! The swelling is almost entirely gone and now the dark blues and purples are changing to greens and yellows. The doctor said it could take several weeks or a month for the bruise to finally go away. It's the most beautiful black eye I've ever seen!
