Home from the hospital

Tuesday, January 7th, 2014

Finally back home after a lot of days at the hospital.  Evan was so excited and gave baby Kate the tour of her new house. It was very cute.

She’s Here

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

Born at 10:25 am, 7 lbs 6 oz, 20.5 in long.

The c-section went well and Mom and baby are happy and healthy. This picture was taken in the operating room about 15 minutes after she was born.  She was so alert and calm.

Evan decided he is ready to text people. He said he was going to text, and started writing letters down on a paper. We asked who he was texting and he said, “All the girls”

Happy 3rd Birthday Evan!

Potty Time!

Friday, June 1st, 2012

It was time, Evan was ready, so Becky and Barbara started encouraging and praising Evan for going pee pee on his potty and he was an expert in no time. Daddy was out of town for a couple days, so it was strange to come home to a diaperless kid peeing on the potty. But, we are all proud of Evan man. It’s been challenging getting him back in his clothes. He wants to stay naked as long as possible. It has also disrupted our bedtime routine, since he’s using going to the potty as a new procrastination technique, but hopefully we’ll get that figured out soon.

It’s Mine!

It’s Mine Time.  Credit goes to preschool, they even gave us a copy of the toddler’s creed at his first teacher’s conference.  So, he doesn’t share quite as well as he used to, but it is probably a good developmental milestone.  He needs to know that some things are his and he deserves a turn with shared toys, etc.  He will still share sometimes, but he definitely knows how to say, “It’s Mine!’
