Eva is 9 months old

The kiddos are doing well.  Eva is getting so sturdy as she cruises.  We feel like she will be walking in the next couple months.  Her favorite thing to do right now is locate a pair of dirty shoes and chew on them.  Then, she tries to crawl away really fast when we come to get her.  She seems to want to eat everything and loves to pull hair and skin.  Owen is often concerned with what Eva is doing and typically reports to me if he feels she is in danger.  Pretty handy to have around :)

Eva is really into finger foods currently and would rather do without purees.  Her favorites are crackers, bread and Cheerios.  She seems to like broccoli, mushrooms and zucchini too.  She finds fruits difficult to pick up and pushes them to the side.  Nursing right now is a challenge as she likes to kick, play and look for Owen while eating.  We usually have the best luck in the morning and evening.  She is starting to get better at using a sippy cup.

Eva loves bath time and does really well in the water.  She and Owen have taken baths together since she was sitting up (around 6 months).  They have a lot of fun splashing around!
