Happy Thanksgiving!

Since a 1-month old Evan slept through his first Thanksgiving, we dubbed today his first REAL Thanksgiving. He got all dressed up, and mommy's cousins came down from DC to spend the day. We had a full turkey and mashed potatoes and cranberries and pies - Evan tried it all. His favorites were the turkey, rolls, and apple pie. What a happy boy! We are so thankful for him.

Yummy Peas

Remember back when a video was posted of Evan spitting out peas? We alternated peas and bananas to see if he'd take to the veggie, and it was a definite no-go. Oh, how times have changed.

At dinner tonight we had a concoction of spaghetti noodles, eggs, bacon, and peas with Italian dressing and parmesan cheese. It was good! Evan's favorite part? The peas! He picked every single pea off his plate, avoiding the bacon and eggs and noodles, until he had eaten what he wanted. What a kid. (Ernie liked the eggs best.)

Fall Leaves

It's a beautiful crisp fall day in Virginia! That's the perfect time to help Evan discover leaves and walking in the grass. Our little man is doing very well at walking on uneven surfaces. He wasn't too sure about sitting in the cool grass, but once he realized he could play with the leaves, being outside wasn't so bad after all. Pretty soon he'll be a big helper and raking right alongside us!

Vacuum Toy

Grandma Barb came for a visit and took Evan toy shopping. He fell in love with the popcorn vacuum and had to bring it home. It's a ton of fun to play with, though Ernie doesn't like it much (at all). He'll get used to it though. Evan sure hopes so, because it's so much fun to push around the house! Thanks, Grandma Barb!

A Walking Pro

Evan's a walking pro now. He has been toddling around for weeks, gaining confidence, and he's finally got it. He no longer needs to hold on to the wall, and his balance is great. Look out Ernie and world - here he comes!
