Mommy has had to pay a lot of attention to the baby lately, so Daddy is getting a little more love from Evan.

Baby Blanket

Friday, January 10th, 2014

We put Kate into the swing for the first time, mommy says i think she needs a blanket so she doesn’t get cold.  Evan gets excited, I’ll get one for she, I’ll get one for she. He ran upstairs and grabbed a blanket from his room and said she can borrow this one, then hurried downstairs and placed it gently on her.  ”Here you go baby Kate.”

When Evan woke up from a late nap:

Mommy: Do you want mommy to lay down with you or do you want to get up?

Evan: (in the sweetest most pitiful voice) I just want a hug.

Evan:  Where’s Daddy?

Mommy: He went to pick up dinner.

Evan: Is he coming back or not?

Cat Cookies

Sunday, November 13th, 2011

This morning while we were getting the house ready for a photo shoot, Evan scored some Trader Joe’s cat shaped cookies after being helpful cleaning up.  Then, Evan & Daddy made a quick trip to Target to pick some things up.  On our way back, I told Evan we were headed back home and he said, “I miss Mommy, and Doggy, and Cat Cookies!”

I Love You

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Evan crawled on top of me in bed this morning and said, “I love you, Daddy,” and gave me a big hug.  Then he crawled over to Mommy and said, “I love you, Mommy,” and gave her a big hug too.  It was the first time, we’d heard him say that. :)
