Evan's 1st steps!

Evan took his first steps today! He was standing by himself with me near him...and then he walked a couple of steps on his own to our end table. He looked so proud and started to giggle.

Of course, he wouldn't repeat it, but he's been standing on his own a lot lately. He'll be walking and pushing his truck or other push toy, will stop and let go, stand on his own (usually looking at us so proud), and then continue to push his toy.

I feel bad Nate was at work and missed it, but he was the first one to see him roll over ;)

Happy Birthday, Evan!

Our little sweet pea is 1 year old today! As I'm typing this, at this moment last year, I was getting prepped for my C-Section. Evan was presenting face-down, and (which we would find out at his delivery) had the cord wrapped around his neck. He was born at 8:27pm. That was the most amazing moment...hearing his cry for the first time, seeing him as our OB held Evan up to us for the first time, and of course, holding him for the first time.

And today, we have an active little boy...crawling around our house, cruising around everything and anything, playing with his toys, and exploring everything around him.

We are so very blessed for our precious little man.

Evan's 11 Month...

One week from today is Evan's 1st Birthday!!! So hard to believe!

Here is what Evan has been up to:

What's new:
*Giving hugs with a snuggle, standing alone for a few seconds (without holding on to anything),


*eating big people food (mac & cheese, biscuits, mashed potatoes, pancakes, bananas to name a few), crawling, peek-a-boo, pulling on the tags of clothes in stores, bath time, talking, pulling on Katie's tail (and trying to pull her ears and poke her eyes), cruising around furniture, imitating daddy's Ray Liotta laugh, making "snarly" face

DISLIKES: shopping trips (too boring for him and hates being restrained in the cart), most of his baby food (except for fruit), getting his face wiped or cleaning boogers out of his nose, diaper changes

A Saturday at the pumpkin patch

We decided to go to Smith Family Farms and visit their pumpkin patch. What a fun time we had with everything: corn "maize", petting zoo, hay ride, and pumpkin patch. Evan seemed to enjoy it too :)

A rainy day

While we made a quick trip to Babies 'R Us, we spent most of the day inside playing with all of his toys. A fun day we had...just mommy and Evan (and Katie & Rocco).

Yes, Evan loves to attack our Kleenex (no, they're not used), as you can see!

Showing off some new teeth

It is almost impossible to catch a picture of Evan's new teeth (he has 4 new ones on top) I finally caught one. Such a funny face he's making for his mommy!
