Our Little Man is Growing Up!

Riding a carousel for the first time. He loved it!
In his little rocking chair. He also uses it to climb onto the bed!
It's so hard for me to believe how fast this past year has gone. I can remember crying when my parents where here after Evan's birth and thinking I would spend the rest of my life dead on my feet! Evan has started sleeping through the night the past two weeks. At first I was ecstatic! I'd waited 13 months for this to be a consistent thing. In the past he would go for several nights and then go back to getting up at least once during the night. When I talked with the pediatrician about it he said to just go with it because of the trouble we have getting Evan to eat. When he would get up at night he always took a full bottle. In the past few weeks Evan has really done a lot better as far as eating goes. Some days are a struggle, but nothing compared to what it used to be. Anyway, all that to say, I am really missing him getting up at night! I know, you probably think I'm crazy and have gone off the deep end! Seriously though, as exhausting as it was, those nights are precious memories. Evan is not a real big "cuddle bug". At night that would change. He would lay in my arms and seemed content to stay there forever. As if Momma was the most wonderful thing in the world. I know Evan has to grow up and I really do want him to. It's just the sentimental Momma in me that wishes she could keep that innocence for just a little longer. Each day he becomes a little more independent. We can't wait to see what God has in store for his life! No matter how long I live I will always cherish those nights that we cuddled while I prayed over his little life.

Descriptions of videos

Below are two videos of Evan taken in the last month. The first one is Evan liking an Elvis impersonator. We were watching a clip from America's Got Talent and for some reason Evan really liked this guy. Actually, he likes music in general and does this quite often when music comes on. We thought it was rather funny! The second one is when he was first getting used to walking. He now walks more than he crawls. Usually he doesn't walk with this toy, but for some reason the night I took this video he was pushing it around.

These are some pics of the last week or so. I wasn't able to get them uploaded in order.

As usual, Evan has a very expressive face!
Trying out his new big boy cup. He actually really likes it. He loves straws!
Our weekend in Orlando. Justin bowling.
The mini golf place. It was called Pirates Cove and was about the best mini golf place I've ever been to. We decided to play the harder course which was called Blackbeard's Challenge.
Playing on the Bob the Builder ride at Chuck E Cheese.
Cuddle time! He loves that blankie.
He decided Mommy hadn't given him enough so he dumped the box out and was eating from the pile. I had gone to get ready to leave and he climbed onto the couch to reach the box.
Proud that he climbed into his highchair by himself!
