On her Quilt

My mom had Éowyn's quilt embroidered and just sent it back up to us. I am thrilled with how it turned out! I took advantage of the unseasonably warm day to get some good outside (and unclothed!) pictures. As Éowyn is a most cooperative subject when she's asleep, I didn't really get her big blue eyes in these, though they matched it all so well. :)

Focused on Grace

Already a Bookworm

Eowyn has already been the youngest attendee at BOTH bookclubs I'm in. Tonight she & I went to Andrea's house to enjoy fall-themed treats and discuss Wilkie Collins' The Moonstone (the first detective novel in English)... heheh Mommy's reading of this book had been inturrupted by SOMEONE's arrival, so... we mostly listened and laughed. =D

It's so hard to catch her big-eyed watching expression on film, even though she does it often. When I saw this picture, I realized that it looks very much like her aunt, Nicole! :) And yes, those are teeny-tiny earrings she's wearing. :)

Sleepin' in the Sun

We picked apples & picked out our pumpkins, then had a picnic by the lake.

First Bath (REAL Bath)

She didn't take too well to the water right at first, but after a cry or two she realized it wasn't half bad! Ryan & I LOVED her fuzzy head upon exiting the bath. :)

Ready to Ride

She's ready for her GB to come teach her to cycle! If you didn't know, my father was SC Cycling State Champ two years running back in the 80s. I grew up going to cheer him on at bike races, making signs that said "GO DAD GO!" My Tia LM (my mom's elder sister) bought ME this outfit when I was itty-bitty. Now she is enjoying it!

Look, Ma, a Belly Button!

Hooray! Her cord finally fell off! 3 weeks and 1 day later. Now I can finally put her in all of her cloth diapers.

Give Me an E... an O... a W!

What're we spelling? =D
P.S. I actually took these yesterday, but oh well. She looks about the same. ;D

Purple Suit Photo Shoot

So far, my child looks cute in any color, yes, even in pink. I think my favorites, though, are purple and yellow. My friend Renee sent me this cute little outfit, which I wanted to photogragh before E outgrew it! So in a happy moment between anguished cries, we had a little photoghraphy session. Ta-da!!

My favorite of them all
