We had a busy weekend and poor, little Evan was pooped out. It started Friday night when we went to a rehearsal dinner for our friends. We were out until about 9:30 which is way past Evan's bed time. Then, last night we went to the wedding and we were out until about 10:00. Evan was such a good baby even though he was up late. We were so proud of him for being so good. There was a babysitting corner at the reception and we left Evan there for a bit but that didn't last long. Several people took turns holding him and walking around. He was so good and I think he may have even enjoyed himself a little.
Today, we went to Waffle House for breakfast and then to Home Depot to get flowers. He napped for 2 hours and then had lunch outside on the porch The weather was so nice today! After lunch we went out and got more flowers and by the time we got home it was time for Evan's 2nd nap (which he did not have). He just didn't want to go to sleep. It was quite a long day for him. We gave him a nice warm bath and put him to bed (at 7:00). He was exhausted. Tomorrow I'm going to stay in and give him a chance to fully recover from his weekend of partying. We will definitely be taking it easy! Here are a few pictures from this weekend.

Evan made his first real attempt at crawling this evening! He has been so close by getting on his hands and knees but never was able to go forward...until tonight. He actually went after his baseball bat. I was so proud him and I think he was proud of himself too. I clapped for him and he just smiled. At one point it looked as if he was trying to see where he was going to go next but he's not quite ready for roaming the house yet but it won't be long. I did get a little bit on video. I'll have to get more when we have a bit more time.

Evan is really close to crawling. He moves forward a little before falling on his belly. He still gets himself stuck under the couch every once in awhile and I have to rescue him. It is so funny to watch him roll around on the floor but one day soon he's going to figure out that he can move and our world will be turned upside down. I'm looking forward to it!

Evan hasn't started crawling yet but he is getting close. He does get on his hands and knees but then belly flops onto the floor. He has discovered that he can move himself but it's backward and not forward. While on his belly, he uses his hands to push back and ends up bumping into a wall or furniture. One time he was almost under his crib! It's too funny! Yesterday we were in the living room and several times he managed to get under the couch. He can only go so far before his head prevents him from going completely under. I had to rescue him each time. I'm surprised the dust bunnies that live under there didn't attack him! Anyway. Here's a picture I quickly took before he could get angry.

One day last week Evan had an exhausting day and didn't take an afternoon nap. He was practically sleeping with his eyes open while I was feeding him dinner. I thought he was going to fall asleep in the high chair. He didn't but I did get a couple pics of his sleep eyes.
