Friday Moments | #1

Honestly, I missed Monday Moments, and I missed monthly moments. Monday seemed too intimidating (I really take Mondays slow these days), and monthly moments seemed too far apart. So I bring you Friday Moments. It doesn't have any fun alliteration and we're going to aim for every other week, but here we go :)

Everly has decided that this is how she has to carry her bottle. Also, she loves those little shoes. She has me put them on for her all the time by taking them and setting them on top of her foot. She clearly knows that's where they go but she has no concept of how to actually get them there herself. 

These two. :)

Everly had a grand time distracting us through General Conference... so glad that they publish the talks afterward! I have never gotten so little out of a conference before.

Took this after she decided to abandon my Mom and I on a walk. She decided to go out and explore on her own. It really is bittersweet to see her start to be more independent like this.

Seriously, if anyone knows where I can get cheap rain boots and rain gear for Everly, let me know! These rainy days were fun, but also killed me. I wanted to get out of the house SO bad.

This shoot was so cold. It rained. Snowed a little bit. Also, Everly threw up on the way home. Luckily it wasn't too bad and we were just a few minutes away. But I was still glad we got the photos! We're so excited for our new baby.

My little sister bought this dress for Everly because she saw it at the store and decided that she needed it. I've got to say, it's one of my new favorites. And yes, we let her play at the park in it on Sunday.

Our neighbors down the street were giving this play set away so we took it! Everly already loves teh little slide. We didn't make it out of Pajamas that day, but hey, we went on two walks and played outside for a few hours so I think it was worth it.

Shortly after this photo I made Everly actually sit in the stroller. She'd been pushing it for 15 minutes and I decided it was time to go home. She cried the entire way home. I'm still getting into my groove when it comes to tantrums, but I was so proud of myself for not giving in to what she wanted and staying calm even though she was really upset. I just spoke to her in a calm voice. Told her that I knew that she really wanted to push the stroller but that we weren't doing that right now. Hopefully I can keep my cool for future tantrums as well.
