Evie's first view of the lake - 3/3/2017
Evie got his first taste of playing in the snow, lots of time with his cousins Dominic and Gordon, and plenty of cuddles with Grandma F (he was a bit wary of Grandpa F, but we're sure he'll grow out of that soon - why are so many babies skittish around men?).
We were more into the snow than Evie was - 2/28/17
Chris and Elizabeth got to ski for the first time in three years, on day at Northstar and one at Homewood. Post-knee surgery for him and post-pregnancies for her, and we did OK! Elizabeth's brother and sister-in-law also got to experience the majesty of Lake Tahoe skiing for the first time (thanks, grandparents, for babysitting!).

Evie's first steps - playing the take diapers out and put them back in the drawer game - 2/14/2017
Watching Evie toddle around, it's very clear that we are exiting the baby phase. It's a weird feeling because we've been in the baby phase much longer than normal. We've been in the baby phase - from trying to conceive to having a toddler - for over three years. Of course we hoped parenting would eventually involve all the phases, but it still stings to be moving on to a new one, and Obie isn't able to experience it.
