Our little man is officially 5 months old already! It's so hard to believe he's been in our lives that long! Sometimes it seems like we were just leaving the hospital, and other times it's hard to remember what our lives were like "before Evan".... We're loving every minute of this little guy!! Enjoy our latest pictures!The monthly picture in his crib...
There's a half smile...
I loved this picture. He's still not a huge fan of tummy time, but he's doing much better!!
This tummy time can wear a little guy out!!
Laughing on mommy and daddy's bed one morning....
He's sitting all by himself!!
Loving his little lion....
All bundled up and ready to go!
This is not funny guys!! Get me out of this thing!!!
Such a big man in his polo shirt!
Trying out his new big boy jammies...
First attempt at vegetables... He wasn't too sure at first!
Doing great with the sweet potatoes... We decided to give veggies a try since the attempts at rice cereal weren't improving.. He's doing much better with the veggies... It must have just been the texture or taste of the cereal that he didn't like!!!

We're Back!!

I apologize for the lack of posting in the last couple of weeks... I've been reprimanded by several people that I need to be better about this (I won't name any names- PAT and LAURA).... :) We've all been passing around colds in our family, but thankfully we're all healthy and back to normal now... These last few weeks have been full of fun times with family and friends... And Evan continues to change and do new things each and every day.. Here are some fun stats about our little Evan:
-He's almost 5 months old already!
-He weighed 20 pounds, 8 ounces two weeks ago at the doctor's office
-He's starting to show preference to mommy and daddy and "puckers up" when someone else is holding him
-He's sleeping much better at night now- last night he slept for over 8 hours in one stretch!
-He's getting a little better with the rice cereal each night- but it's still not his favorite thing!
-He's starting to sit up really well with some help
-He loves to watch his Praise Baby and Baby Einstein DVDs
-He loves to read with mommy during the day!!
-He's starting to laugh and jabber a lot now!

So that's the latest with our family-- Here are some random pictures of what we've been up to!

Our little Evan at 4 Months Old!Evan's Cousin Ty when they came to visit over Christmas.. They were swimming at Aunt Alieta and Uncle Denny's pool... Isn't he stylin with those goggles???

Evan's cousins Hailey and Claire playing Mall Madness in between swimming!

Rob helping Ty with his stylin' goggles!
Daddy and Evan playing while everyone else was swimming!
Evan in the big boy bathtub for the first time- he wasn't too sure at first! Check out those rolls!
All ready for the big IU game! Go Hoosiers!
Nap time at the Baker house one afternoon.....
A more recent attempt at cereal.... :)
Mommy and Evan all ready for church!!
Hanging out on the couch...
Taking a ride around the house in his new stroller... I'm not sure who likes it more- Daddy or Evan!!
Playing in his crib in his Notre Dame jammies! Thanks Gramma Charna and Grampa Brad!!
Playing with his stuffed animal cow... He loves it!! (Thanks Nathan and Ruth!)
We had to laugh at this... We had turned Evan away from the tv because he just loves to watch it so much and we try to limit his amount of tv time each day- and this is what happened- his eyes are just glued to the tv!!! Drew was convinced he just wanted to watch the IU game, but I'm not so sure!!
Talking with his hands!
Trying on hats with daddy!!
His cute "Born Naughty" outfit from Gramma Beth and Grampa Clark- We love the outfit even though he's really not naughty!!

We hope all is well with your families!! I'll try to be better about updating this from now on!!!
