We brought in 2009 at our friends house playing Rock Band. Eva was there with us, going in and out of sleep. It's so hard to remember those newborn days when she slept all the time.
Here's a picture of Eva in a sleeper that is way too big for her. Gone are the days when she wore clothes that were too big. She's growing out of clothes so quickly now.
On January 5th, Eva watched her first Buckeye bowl game. I think in this picture she might be wondering why her daddy is so intense? FOOTBALL!!!! is the answer.
On January 8th, my maternity leave ended and I went back to work. On January 9th, my company eliminated my position due to downsizing/the economy/they were jerks. The only other position available with the company was a part-time, admin position -- huge paycut, but at least I had a job, right? Although I was pretty darn upset, I accepted the part-time position and tried to be positive about the opportunity it gave me to spend time with Eva.
On January 10th, we attended our nephew Eston's FIRST birthday party. It was a robot themed party and it was loads of fun.
Here's Eva at 2 months old. Our little peanut! (peanut, peanut, peanut, elephant, elephant, bird)
At some point in January, we bought Rock Band for our X-Box. We had so much fun playing it on NYE that we had to get our own. Dan got a perfect score playing guitar, and just had to take a picture of the screen. Boys are a little silly sometimes, aren't they?
Eva was growing by leaps and bounds during this time. Here she is in all her chubby little cuteness - - in her Tigger outfit that "Aunt" Kate got for her. Isn't she adorable?
On January 24th, we celebrated my birthday at Dad and Rose's house. Here is Eva and her Pawpaw - apparently we were partying to hard for her and she had to take a break.
Love the look on Eva's face in this picture!
And here is a nice family picture. :)
On the 28th (my actual birthday) the three of us met Mom and Shelly at Cap City for a birthday dinner. I had my favorite - - Romano Crusted Chicken. Yum...
So that wraps up January. Next up: February! (Surprise!)
