Busy Busy Busy

Over the past few weeks Evan has really taken off. He is nearly running around the house and of course is getting into everything! He is signing "more" and says Hi and Up. He also seems to understand almost everything we say to him. If we're downstairs and we tell him it's time for a bath, bed or dinner, he'll go to the stairs and wait for us to open the gate. Unfortunately though we have to take some bad with the good. Evan has started throwing tantrums when he can't get his way. He throws himself on the floor and is VERY dramatic! He'll also throw toys down with an exaggerated grunt. At times it is almost funny though. Here's some pictures from the last few weeks...

Evan thinks it's hilarious to eat the bubbles during bathtime

Evan wearing one of my headbands - he walked around with it for several days - every time it fell off, he wanted it back on!

Playing with mommy's gloves
Evan's new thing to do during naptime - he takes his socks off and throws them out of the crib along with his stuffed animals. Sometimes he takes books off the shelf next to his crib and throws those down too.

Playdate with the Millennium babies - they're growing up so fast!

Roadtrip to Indy - Long time ago in February

Back in February, we made the trip down to Indianapolis to meet up with a bunch of friends from Butler. We stayed at a hotel Friday night. It was a rough night because Evan did not want to go to sleep, but I think he finally did sometime after 10:00. On Saturday morning we went to my friend Jill's house and had breakfast with Jen, Jill and Jason, and Kate, Joe and Jack (who was around 1 1/2 years old at the time). We then headed out to lunch to meet up with a large group of friends from band. There were probably about 20 of us, including lots of kids! It was fun meeting up with everyone and seeing some friends who I haven't seen in a long time. Then we headed back to Jill's house where Jack and Evan spent some time playing and napping. We made the trek back home to Chicago Saturday night after a very busy day!

Will Be Back Soon

I apologize for my absence from blogging, but it has been a crazy, stressful, busy past couple of weeks. I'm on Spring Break next week, so hopefully I'll be able to play catch up then. Please check back soon!
