More Fun Pics


My parents were here this past weekend to visit with Evan. He sure has changed so much just in the last couple months. He's more vocal, he giggles more and makes everyone laugh with his fake cough (which I haven't recorded yet). He has also been shaking his head no. I'm not sure if he understands what he's doing or if it's just something he can do. Sometimes if he's fussy I'll try to give him a bottle or a pacifier and if he doesn't want it, he shakes his head no. Maybe he thinks that if he moves his head I can't stick anything in his mouth. I don't know. Also, every once in awhile if I shake my head yes he'll shake his no. It's pretty funny! He is a silly baby!

In two of the pictures, Evan is eating carrots. Somehow he managed to get them all over his face and in his hair! He looked like an umpa lumpa! He definitely got a bath later that night! That was a funny and messy experience !

Evan's First Baseball Cap


Eric got a Red Sox cap before Evan was born. Of course we didn't know he was going to be a boy so I was wondering how this cap would look on a girl (just in case). Luckily, we didn't have to worry about that. The cap was quite big for awhile (even on his big noggin) but now it fits perfect and looks super cute!!

Evan's Exersaucer


When we were up north visiting family, Evan got to enjoy the exersaucer they have. He seemed to like it and so I decided to get him one. They are not cheap. I was lucky and found one here in Chattanooga on craigslist. I picked it up today and brought it home. I think he likes it. He checked out the toys on it and moved around a bit. Of course it was at the end of the day so he was getting a little cranky but still didn't seem to mind. He smiled quite a bit but everytime I tried to get his picture he stopped smiling. Silly boy! I'll get more pics tomorrow and hopefully he'll be smiling!

Spit-up on Mommy Day!


Evan doesn't always spit-up but there are times that he does. He's just not a real spitty baby. Today I got hit with at least three good ones and I mean good ones! Twice on my shirt and another time on my jeans. Plus, it got all over him! Now that's talent! I smelled like rotten cheese. It was great. What's funny is that it didn't even bother me. I just looked at it and said "awesome" and wiped it off and of course changed my shirt but not until after the second spit-up. Smart thinking I must say. Otherwise I would messed up two shirts! Way to go Evan!

btw...He spit-up on Eric's side of the bed too! Oops!

Home FROM the Holidays


We had a really great time visiting family up in NH. Everyone was excited to see Evan and we were happy to be up there spending Christmas with everyone. Evan had a wonderful first Christmas. He got all kinds of toys and clothes (since he's growing like a weed)! NH got alot of snow the week before we got there and it snowed again on New Year's Eve so I was very happy that Evan got to see snow for the first time even though he won't remember it. It was definitely cold up there. On New Year's Eve, we went to visit Ryan, Sue & baby Keele in Kittery, Maine. There was another couple there that we know and they have a 20 month old son. Once the kids were in bed we all went outside to enjoy the fire that the guys made but it was so cold and windy that it was hard to stay warm. It was 6 degrees and I don't even know what the wind chill was!!!! I do know that we were drinking some fun beverages and Eric's drink actually froze! We still had a great time. We all stayed up until midnight but we complained about how late it was and that midnight seemed like it would never arrive. Life changes alot once you have little munchkin and staying up late is very hard to do. It was great to see everyone. I got a bunch of pictues!

BTW...I forgot to mention that Evan laughed out loud for the first time on December 20! We were so happy! He has been giggling off and on ever since. He's a whole new baby and seemed to happen overnight. He is cutter than ever and he makes us laugh. He so much fun!!!!
