Evan's Walker


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!

Lynn & Nick's Baby Arrives!


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 Finally Uses His Hands!


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!

Our Little Pumpkin


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!

What is this thing on my head!?

Pooped out!

Evan Update


Sorry it has been awhile since I last posted. We were out of town last week.

We saw the pediatrician on Monday. Evan is 13lbs. and doing well. I can't believe how much he has changed. I finally went through his clothes and put away his newborn things. He can no longer wear them :( It's crazy how much he grows. He is smiling more and more and shows signs of enjoyment. It is definitely exciting to watch him change and I look forward to other milestones. For right now though, I wish he would slow down and not grow too fast.
The doctor gave us a nightly routine to start with him so that he will sleep more through the night. So far, it's working. I hope it's not beginners luck. We feed him around 8ish and if he falls asleep, we wake him around 10/10:30 for a bath and we feed him again and put him in his crib (around 11ish). The first night was the same. He woke around 2:30am to eat and again at 6am. Last night he slept until 4am!!!! I couldn't believe it! We are definitely on the right track. We'll see how tonight goes.

It has been busy and crazy here. I will have more pictures soon.
