Eva Started Swim Lessons

Eva started swim lessons at the YMCA today. We had a lot of fun playing in the pool. Here are some photos for the pool.

Boston Church Tour Photowalk

On Saturday Drew and Eva and I went on a photo excursion with the New England Photo Expeditions group at Meetup.com. We had a great time meeting everyone and were able to get some great shots around the city. Eva really seemed to enjoy herself as well. I'm glad we found the group and we are looking forward to more trips with them.

Part way through the trip my camera battery died, so Drew let me borrow his Canon point and shoot. He'd played with his settings and all the shots came out with a blue tinge to them. It actually makes some of the shots more interesting. Here are some of my favorite shots from the trip.

Happy Baby

A Kid of Many Faces

Because Eva has had a camera in her face since 5 minutes after she was born she is quite used to having her picture taken. She either ignores the camera entirely or she poses, it's a riot. I took a bunch of photos of her earlier this week, here are some of my favorites.

We Have a Tooth!

Eva's cutting her first tooth! It's a very exciting time in the Bennett household.

The light spot where the arrow is pointing is Eva's first tooth! Try taking pictures inside a six month old's mouth some time and you'll appreciate this shot a whole lot more.

More Florida Pics

Here are some more photos of Eva from our trip to Florida.

This is Eva's talking face. She's gotten quite chatty recently. I wonder where she gets that from?

Tasty Fingers!
Eva loves to chew on her fingers...

...and her toes.

Thoughtful Baby
I love this thoughtful look on Eva's face.

Water Bottle Baby
Later in the day Eva chewed on this water bottle. She's fascinated by them.

First Swim

Eva had her first pool experience while we were in Florida. Drew was bummed that he missed it, but I managed to capture the experience here for him and the rest of my viewing audience. Eva was really comfortable in the water. I think she'll be a fish like her parents.

First Swim
Eva's not sure what to think of this yet. I mean, all of her water experience to date has involved getting a bath. Why is she in the water in a diaper and clothes?

Posing with Mommy

A little floating for Eva. For some reason she put her hands behind her head like this a lot in the pool. I don't know if it was because she was nervous or she just wanted to look the part of a bathing beauty.

What's going on here?

Sitting Pretty

Pruny Toes
Apparently we spent a little too much time in the water. But Eva was having too much fun.

Tired Baby
Our big pool adventure really wiped Eva out.

Sleepy Eva
After a little snuggling Eva finally fell asleep poolside.

Florida Trip

I finally unpacked my camera from our Florida trip. I have a few photos from Eva's first day in Florida here and will put up the photos of her first swim and other Florida photos this weekend.

Naked Toes
As I've said before, Eva loves naked toes and in Florida they could be naked quite a lot. That made Eva one happy kid.

My dad's friend Stephen visited our first weekend there. He brought Eva this adorable seahorse. Its belly lights up like a Gloworm and it plays music. It's awesome.

New hat
My mom got Eva this cute hat for our visit. I love the little flap in the back to cover her neck.

Smooshy face
Eva makes the cutest faces when she's babbling. I love this face, especially. Those cheeks make me melt.

Stay tuned for more Florida photos.
