Evy is definitely a second child. By this time in Annikah’s little life there were at least 2,000 pictures of her. I admittedly am a slacker and am trying to repent and capture some of the adorable-ness that is Evy Imani right now. She is almost 5 months and just started eating rice cereal and bananas and she LOVES to eat (definitely fits in around here!) She is sleeping better as well, only waking up once or twice a night for a short time which is life-giving let me tell you. Evangeline is known around these parts as Imani since everyone loves her Kiswahili name and few people have even tried to say her English one. Jason and I both commented the other night that this is when it gets really good. Not that I do not love little babies but honestly it is rough for me and this age is just amazing. The interaction, the feedback, the little personality forming. I just love it. Evy smiles so much and lovse her sister. Anni was way more serious and you really had to do something worthy of her smile but Evy is so friendly to everyone and loves to smile. People are always saying “anacheka” (she is laughing) when she busts a sweet smile out. Seriously, is there anything better than a baby smile?

    Oh, thank you for the video and pictures of that darling smile. I just wanted to hug her to pieces. Such chubby little arms, and they thought she was too skinny at first. Keep those videos coming cause Bibi really misses her…..

    What an adorable baby! I am so glad she is so low maintenance! Brought such joy to my day! I have two boys that I teach, who's dad is from Ghana, knows Kiswahili, but doesn't teach his kids, so make them word cards of most of the words you write in your blog! They love it! Thank you so much for doing that! Love, Karen
