My favorite new phrase of Evelyn’s is “I guess so.” Almost any time she says “yes” now she follows it within a few seconds with “gesso.” And she always says it under her breath a little bit and kind of deflated, like she’s saying, “::sigh:: If I must.” which is really funny when she says it after I ask her if she wants something you can really tell she wants. It’s like “Do you want some chocolate?” “Yeah!” pause, sigh, “gesso.”
Evelyn really likes to have her back tickled and really doesn’t like the doctor. We went into the office for her checkup and before I even started taking her clothes off she started saying “No diaper change Mommy!” She was crying pretty actively by the time we got into actually see the doctor, but after a bit she realized that maybe she wasn’t going to get a shot and she started to calm down.
Evelyn loves strawberries (stobbies) and she’s been enjoying the beginning of the cherry season here. We found a vegetable that she likes as well: cucumbers! She’ll eat several cucumber slices at a time, but she likes them best with sour cream. She also gets excited for macaroni and cheese or “pony cheese” as she calls it.
Note: I just went to write a post for Evelyn for this month and realized I never finished and published last months. Sorry about that! It’s short but here it is.
