Cousin Love

Evey loves her cousin Ari... and most of the time Ari loves Evey back... but maybe not right now.

Bath Time!

Evelynn - 2 1/2 Years Old

Our little Stone is 2 1/2 years old today! I decided to conduct an interview with Evelynn and plan on doing so on each birthday to see how her responses change as she gets older.

Interview with Evelynn (2 1/2 Years Old)

Name: "Ev Stone Hames"
Age: "Two... Two Half"
Favorite Color: "Pink-Yellow"
Favorite Show: "Curious George, Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake"
Favorite Food: "Lunch... Oatmeal, Donuts"
Favorite Drink: "Water"
Favorite Toy: "Jessie Doll, Care Bears"
Loves: "Mom and Daddy"

At 2 1/2 years old, Evelynn is 37 inches tall and weighs in at 30 lbs. She is wearing 2T & 3T clothing, size 7 shoes, and size 5 diapers. Potty training has not been successful yet but I've been pretty lax about it. Now that we have Frozen underwear and a Cinderella potty seat that Evey's super pumped about, I'm going to try and get this going! Luckily, Ev is still napping once a day, ranging from 1 hour to 3 hours. As far as food goes, we've got a picky eater on our hands. I'm not sure what else we were expecting as both Matt and I were really picky eaters as kids! Evey is a really great helper, "I wanna help you" comes out of her mouth every time we go to do something. She is really great with her 4 month old cousin Ari... which quickly made me realize what an incredible big sister she is going to be! Many people ask if I think she'll get jealous and how I'll handle that once baby #2 comes, but honestly, I think she'll be nothing but a great little mommy's helper! Evelynn is also very independent, always wanting to "do by myself." She is a very quick learner and is beyond fearless! She is a lover... always coming in for hugs and kisses and now says "I love you Momma" which just melts my heart! I've said this in blogposts before, but this age is so awesome! I absolutely love having a little buddy to tear it up with!

Easter in San Diego

On Friday, we headed down to San Diego after Matt got off of work to celebrate Easter weekend with the Custenborders and Lynn & Steve. On Saturday, we hung out at Greg & Laura's house and let the cousins dye eggs for the Easter Bunny. Then the kiddos all went swimming in the hot tub!
