After another long hiatus, the blog is back! It’s been so long I’m not going to try to put together some cohesive blog – this will be a simple summary of the past month. A lot has happened. First, Evie got a visit from her grandma and grandpa Messmer in mid-March, as evidenced by this shot of her walking with her entourage:
Then we took her to Austin for a couple of days. It was hard for Norie and I to get out and do much since we had a toddler to manage, but Evie had a grand time in the hotel room:
There has also been some fun at home. I decided I had had enough of this whole “living without a piano” thing, so I went ahead and picked up a keyboard, which Evie immediately discovered was great fun:
Unfortunately, shortly thereafter she got her first ear infection. That made for a rough week – she didn’t eat, drink, or sleep well, and every night we had to force antibiotics down her throat. She was pretty miserable (we all were), but she rallied in time for Beer Bike, where we continued our tradition of renting livestock:
Now she’s fully recovered from her illness and making up for it by devouring any food in sight and racing around campus. She’s actually pretty impressive – she knows where things on campus are and even knows how to open doors:
She’s also graduated away from toys that light up and is now really into moving things from one place to another, often in stacks. Sometimes, she wants to bring us a series of stuff:
Finally, she’s really gotten into the concept of sitting down, especially when she looks at her books. As such, we went ahead and invested in an Evie sized chair. She loves it!
And, just to wrap up, here are a month-and-a-half worth of random adorable videos and pictures:
