18 MONTHS!

Wow... Time flies when you're having fun! Can you believe my little man is 18 months old today? It seems like just yesterday when we were bringing him home from the hospital! Little Evan has turned our life upside down in the last year and a half and it's hard to remember what our life was like before him! We feel so blessed to have our little guy and thank God for him everyday. What a joy!

Animal Sounds

Evan has been working on his animal sounds lately. Although they're not all perfect, we sure get a kick out of them. Enjoy!

Swim Lessons!

We have been taking Evan to swim lessons every Saturday. He has been doing the parent/child classes with Daddy (Mommy isn't much of a swimmer and this is a good thing for Evan to do with Daddy)... To say that he is doing better is quite the understatement. We still don't see many smiles out of him, but at least he's not screaming bloody murder like he did the first time. He can even see me on the side now without freaking out and reaching for Mommy... I know this might not seem like a big deal to lots of people, but he's really come a long way... We're so proud of our little man...
About as close as we get to a smile during swim lessons!!

Watching Praise Baby with Aunt Laura (or as Evan says- Aunt WarWa)....

My little boy looks so grown up!

Smile!! When we tell Evan to smile, this is what he does. So cute :)

Growing Up!!

It seems like Evan has grown up so much these past couple of weeks... Our little guy is talking all the time now!! He is learning that he can communicate so much better with us by talking. He has started to pick up on a lot of new words and tries to repeat lots of the things we say. We're just having so much fun watching him grow and learn new things each day! I haven't taken many pictures lately- partially because he's on the move so much I can hardly get him to sit still long enough for a picture! We've also been really busy continuing to finish out our basement and Drew has started to study for his big CFA test in June... I will try to post pictures soon of our progress on the basement. But here are a few of Evan I've taken recently.... We hope all of you friends in "Blogland" are doing well!
Not really in the mood for pictures... But kind of a half smile ;)
This pretty much sums up Evan's favorites... His monkey, blankie, and sippy cup- all while he's watching Baby Einstein... What more could a guy ask for?

Superman and Carousels!

We had another great weekend at the Baker house! Drew went to Bloomington all day Saturday with the Baker clan (I think 17 of them went in all) for a surprise weekend for Dave's (Drew's grandpa) 80th birthday. It sounds like it was a great day filled with lots of laughs and fun times with family. Evan and I stayed at home as we thought it would make for a pretty long day for the little guy. We pretty much stayed around the house, until the evening when we went to Ft. Wayne with my parents and my sister. Evan had a blast riding the carousel at the mall with Grampy...
He smiled soo big ...Every time they would go around he'd smile and look back at us...
This is so much fun!
Evan was looking pretty cute in his Superman jammies the other night, so we had to take some pictures of him....
They even have a cape :)

This picture was too cute not to post.... Squeezing his monkey...
