ABC's, Counting, and my new Scrapping Space!!

This post is going to be a little random, but I wanted to share all of the things we've been up to in the past week....

Evan Update: Along with lots of trips to the park and a couple trips to the zoo, Evan has been learning to count to 10 and sing his ABC's... Although we still have some work to do on the ABC's, I thought you would enjoy it anyways :)

This first video is Evan counting and reading his book- You may need to turn up the volume a little- he talks pretty softly :)

This video is Evan counting and singing the ABC's.. Notice how he is pushing his cars around the whole time.... This is what we do ALL day now... This boy LOVES matchbox cars!!

Trip to the zoo last Friday with Aunt Laura and Ma...
Trying on the hats with Aunt War-Wa...
Playing at the mall playground in between shopping with Mommy...
All by himself! Now he always pushes my hand away whenever I try to help him do anything and says "I do it Mommy"....

Drew Update: Drew's CFA Level III test is over for this year!! I can't tell you what a relief this is, not only for him, but for Evan and I too... We were definitely missing Drew and Evan was really realizing that Daddy wasn't around as much as he usually is... For those of you who have been asking me, Drew felt pretty good about it, but he won't get the results for about 3 months... So now it's just a waiting game. But Drew is definitely enjoying playing some golf and relaxing with Evan and I in his FREE time!!!

Ashley Update: I have also been working on getting my new scrapbooking corner of our office organized and decorated. I found this table at a garage sale last weekend and was so excited.... My dad also painted and gave me 2 storage cabinets that he was using in his garage and didn't want anymore so I filled one up with my scrapbook supplies and now they're hidden and not sitting out all over. Then I took a magnetic board that we bought from IKEA right after we were married and dressed it up a little with some pretty blue and green paisley fabric... I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.... Now I just need to find some time to catch up on all my pages... I'm about 9 months behind!!!
