Evan had carrots for the first time today! He liked them! At least I think he liked them. He didn't make any yucky faces. So far he has had rice cereal, apple sauce and carrots. Very messy! I did get some video but I'll have to wait until I get home to upload it. I was expecting to see more of an exciting reaction but there was none. Oh well. There are plenty more foods to try!

We are getting ready for our trip to NH to visit family. Evan will get to see snow for his first Christmas! We are very excited and can't wait to see everyone and they can't wait to meet Evan. We will be there for about a week. I hope the weather is good since we are driving! It's going to be a long trip but definitely worth it. Merry Christmas!

This afternoon Evan started "talking" again and I was able to get it on video!
I got some video of Evan this morning. He was in a pretty good mood. Of course once I put the camera on him, he stopped making his silly noises. I did get a few smiles and happy sounds. Check it out!

Evan saw the doctor this morning for his 4 month checkup. He weighs 16.14 lbs and is 26 in long. He is doing fine and the doctor said he looks great. Evan is definitely getting what he needs to be healthy. He's gonna be a big boy. We talked about foods and we were told that we can start him on cereal (which we have), fruits and veggies. I can't wait! It's going to be fun to see his reaction to different foods. I think he'll love it! Of course the doctor commented on his big head. He always does. Today he said he has a fat head. We thought that was pretty funny. We know he has a big noggin. It's not getting any smaller, that's for sure!
Evan did get more shots today :( Not a good way to start the day. He's actually sleeping right now and has been for over an hour. Poor thing! He's going to be a starving little baby when he wakes up. I better go get ready!

I got Evan a Jump & Go for Christmas. He is so ready to be moving around but his little body just won't let him yet. I thought he would love a jumper that hangs from the doorway. He hasn't quite figured out that he's supposed to jump in it yet so he's not really able to enjoy it. Once he gets the hang of it, I think he'll absolutely love it! I took a couple pictures of him in it but he's not having much fun. At least he's not crying in these pictures. Plus, I think he'll like it more in the morning when he's fresh and happy. I had him in it this afternoon and by that time he's tired and grumpy. When he starts jumping in it, I'll get some video. I know he love it!
I also just had to share that Evan has been sleeping through the night for over a week. He was doing it before but not night every night. Just some nights here and there. Now, he sleeps from about 7:30pm to about 6:00am. Awesome! That makes mommy and daddy extremely happy!

Evan is 4 months old today! I can't believe it! He is doing very well. He has been sleeping through the night for almost a week! Before, he would sleep through the night a few nights and then it was back to a middle of the night snack. I hope he keeps this up! He goes to bed around 7:30pm and wakes up about 6:30/7am. Not too bad! We have another doctor's appointment on the 15th. We are going to discuss introducing foods. He is always starving. He is finally eating about every 2hrs and taking about 6oz. I can't wait to give him foods. I know it will be messy but I'm looking forward to seeing his reaction to different things. I have a couple new pictures but I will have to post them later. Busy, busy!

Here are some pictures of Evan at the beach for the first time. It was pretty cool and breezy while we were there. I'm not quite sure if he enjoyed it or not. There are a couple of pictures that make me think he was not thrilled to be there. Check them out!

I got some video of feeding Evan. This time, Eric fed him while I recorded it. I had to cut it down so I could upload it to the web so it stops about half way through. No big deal. It's pretty silly!

Today, Evan and I enjoyed some outside time where he eventually fell asleep. After that, we went inside and of course he was hungry so I made him a bottle. I decided that it would be fun to see what he would do with a spoon. So, after giving him a little of the bottle, I made some thick rice cereal and gave it to him. I started off by just feeding him with the spoon but he didn't know what to do with it and wasn't thrilled with the idea. I finally showed him how by pretending to eat from the spoon to show him how good it is. This helped a little. I got some in his mouth but I'm not sure how much he ate. The rest got on his bib and hands. It was a fun experience. Next time I will get it on video!

Eric and I voted this morning and the place where we vote was just down the street. We decided to walk there so we bundled up little Evan. Eric's boss got him a cute hat for winter. Soon it will be too small but for now it's perfect for when it's cold outside. I'll have to get a better picture of it again later. We were trying to get out of the house so I didn't spend too much time taking pictures. I love it!

Evan looked so cute in his turtle outfit! We got a lot of pictures! Our friends Bo, Leslie and little Page came over to celebrate Halloween. Page dressed up as a duck. Page and Evan were the cutest duck and turtle I have ever seen! We had a great time strolling around the neighborhood and seeing all the other costumes. It was a great Halloween!

Evan's not quite ready to be walking obviously but he was excited when I put him in his walker and pushed him around the house. His little feet don't touch the floor and he's still a little short to enjoy the fun toys in front him. I know he can't wait to be able to move around on his own. It won't be too long!

Our friends Lynn and Nick had their baby last night. Her due date was originally November 10 but the baby couldn't wait any longer to meet his parents. Lynn's water broke yesterday afternoon and at 11:46pm, he was here. Everyone is doing well. They do not have a name picked out yet but I'm sure they will soon. He is 6lbs 7oz & 19 inches. What a cutie! We are so excited for them as they start their new family. Congratulations Lynn, Nick and baby!

Evan is trying to control his arms and legs. His little arms are still flailing around like crazy and at times he is hitting himself in the face. Yesterday I gave him a toy to "play" with and he actually grabbed it and held onto it for quite sometime. I was so excited! I just had to get a picture of him holding his first toy! I was also able to get a few pics of him smiling too!

My mom got Evan a little pumpkin outfit for Holloween and I already had a little hat that matched. Plus, my neighbor Amanda got him some cut Holloween socks. Today the weather is cool enough so I dressed him in his cute outfit. The hat that I got for him is a bit too small. Every time I put it on him he cried. It's pretty tight on his big noggin. I had to just set on top of his head so it looks kind of silly. He's a cutie!
