Mama and Daddy took Eva to Utica Square to do some Mother’s Day shopping for Mama, Noni and Gammie this afternoon. She had a great time cruising around Sak’s in her stroller. Everyone ooh’ed and aah’ed at how beautiful she is.
Eva has always loved her baths. She is always happy in the warm water and getting the arm and leg massages from Mama. Lately she’s been doing what we call the back-breaker in the bath, though. The back-breaker is when she bucks up and arches her back super-high to indicate that she’s not where she wants to be. The funny thing is, she usually starts fussing or crying while doing it out of the bath. In the bath, she’s been keeping a happy face, but just arching the back and trying to slide around in the tub.
It’s possible that one of Eva’s favorite places to be is her changing table. She still rarely ever cries when she’s there and usually has a smile on her face. Sometimes, she’ll just look directly at the wall and smile, or look at the pictures and frames nearby. Not sure what it is about it, but you can’t deny the smiles.
Eva gets a lot of love. She is always in her mama’s arms, occasionally in her daddy’s arms and if not there, she’s being held by sisters, Gabriella or Olivia or one of her grandparents is over doing the holding. So it’s a rarity that she’s in her swing. Daddy caught her napping in the swing today though.
