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!

He had a great first Christmas and got lots of fun things. Plus, he got to see some snow up here in NH! We are enjoying our visit and I know Evan is enjoying the attention. I will also post some more pictures when we get back.

Happy New Year!

The Holidays!


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!

Another Short Video


This afternoon Evan started "talking" again and I was able to get it on video!

Happy Evan


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!

Dr. Appt.


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!

Jump & Go


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!

4 Months Old!


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!
