Highlight

It's my turn to update since Allen did it last. Just a few highlights about the highlight in our life.


Evan crawls, stands up next to everything, and my favorite, sits on his little knees when he finds something to play with. However, along with his new found mobility, he has starting throwing tantrums about everything he doesn't want to do... only to me!! He reserves his worst behavior for his mom and even bawls his head off when Allen is around and I try to hold him in public. I narrowly escaped having my front teeth knocked out last week during one of his tantrums.



He gives all kinds of kisses. That is a complete lie. This kid is not a snuggler. In very rare cases, he might give us a little pat. Kisses are only achieved by eating salty chips so he wants to eat any remaining salt off our lips. And yes, he is trying to bite my lips in the picture below.



Evan reading his first Valentine from his mommy and daddy.



Evan is such a little biter. Mostly he likes to eat any kind of book or paper, but he also likes to chow down on socks and shoes, the couch, remotes, and his dad's fingers. I've included the pics below so you could see how enthusiastic he is about taking his socks off and eating them.







I love how happy this kid is. (When he is doing what he wants.) I 'm sorry some of these pics are blurry, but those little teethies make me smile.

I cannot believe how big that little boy is getting!!!! He sounds like an exact replica or Jack....he throws tantrums to me, prefers Max over me, not snuggly at all! etc, etc, etc. I can't wait to see him. You guys should come down here soon!

Woah woah woah...WAY too old. Make it stop! I can't believe he stands up next to stuff and kneels like a big boy when he's playing. I'm sorry he's not snuggly - I hope my baby is snuggly, because I think that's why I have always been so in love with Mia. Best cuddler ever... Please kiss that boy for me (or trick him into kissing you) and don't let him grow anymore. Love you guys!

Oh that kid is cute!!! Just so you know, Sienna literally broke my nose at least 3 times while throwing tantrums. She would throw her head back and hit me straight on the nose... I heard a crack every time and I cried every time she did it... I always thought boys were snuggly to their mammas... I guess I will have to re-think having another kid... I want a snuggly one SO BAD!!!
I want to go on a play date with you guys but Sienna keeps catching colds... As soon as the runny nose is gone we will be calling you!

Uh I am sure he had gicen me multiple kisses without any salty chip lips! I do love that toothy grin. It is my favorite. Great update!

Good update, honey! You sure made a cute kid. I think he got the salt off of your lips after the first few kisses...the rest were just cause he loves you.

I can't believe how fast Evan is growing! Juliet was and still is the same way, I can't tell you how many book bindings she has ruined because she loves to suck and bite them! It drives me crazy! Hope life is good in Utah, we miss you guys!

Oh - that's my cute little boy, and I must admit that I always said there was never a more pleasant little boy than Allen -- that is as long as he was getting his own way! He also loved his Dad and never had time for me because he was so busy getting outside to his Dad. Just prepare yourself for his independence that is coming very quickly! No matter what, however, he is CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!!!

Ahhh He is so CUTE! Look at all those teeth! It's amazing how much his character sounds like Kate. Kate is sooo stingy with kisses. Lately she'll let me press my cheek against hers but other than that, forget it! And yes, she throws fits with only me. What the heck!? Like my mom told me when she saw Kate throw a fit: "Well she has your number doesn't she?"

He looks like such a big boy with all of those teeth. I love how happy he is now-a-days. He has developed such a darling little personality. It cannot get any cuter than that boys kissing his mommy. He loves you, even if it SEEMS he loves his daddy more.

He is so cute. He has chubby little cheeks that your can pinch. Do you pinch them all the time? I love how he eats his socks. That is too cute.

BTW, your haircut looks super cute. Can you give an update about that?

Jody said...

What a cutie! I love a big toothy smile. It was fun seeing you at conference.
