Twenty One Weeks Old

Sunday, December 20th, 2009

Evan has learned a lot this week.  He is consistently grabbing for objects placed in front of him and he has learned how to grab hair, just in time to see all of his relatives in Northern California.  He loves to babble and make motor boat sounds, we’ll have to get a video up soon. And as you can see he still loves to roll!

Mobile Boy

Monday, December 14th, 2009

This morning, Becky set Evan down in his playmat and sat down to read some e-mails. Fifteen seconds later, she looked over and he wasn’t in his playmat anymore! See the video here. By the evening, he had perfected his technique. Check out the video below.

Evan is starting to really love grabbing things.  He especially likes faces right now.  He’s been grabbing daddy’s nose, cheeks and lips a lot.

Eighteen Weeks Old

Saturday, December 5th, 2009

Evan has calmed down his rolling madness…a bit.  For a few days we could not keep him on his back. If we set him down he would immediately roll to his tummy, and then usually fuss until we flipped him back.  He has been practicing rolling from back to front, and then front to back again.  But so far hasn’t mastered it.  So far, he only rolls to his left.

He decided that he didn’t want to use nipple shields anymore this week…yeah!  It was pretty funny…he grabbed the shield, threw it behind him, and latched on to the real deal with a quickness.  It is so much nicer to not have to use them.  We were constantly washing them and had to make sure we had one if we took him out anywhere.  Phew…

Evan loves to put his fingers in his mouth and is starting to drool all over them and his sleeves. My favorite move is when he gets both thumbs in his mouth one on each side.  I hope I can get a picture.

Evan has lost some interest in his mobile.  He still checks out his animal light switch plate, but isn’t quite as enamored as he used to be.  He has finally started to lengthen his naps in his swing, but must be going through a growth spurt, because he is wanting to nurse more frequently at night.

Glasses Grab

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

Evan grabbed both mommy & daddy’s glasses off of their faces today.  He’d never done it to either of us before.  He grabbed my glasses and had a lens in each hand.  It looked like he was trying to snap them in two.  When Becky was trying to put him to bed he grabbed her glasses and threw them to the floor.  Little stinker! I am sure this won’t be the last time this happens.

Four Month Doctor Visit

Monday, November 30th, 2009

We had our 4 month doctor visit today.  Evan measured 13lbs 8oz and 25″ long, with a head circumference of 43cm. He is is the 19th percentile for weight, and the 51st for height…tall and skinny, just like his daddy. He received 3 shots, and burst out crying for each one, but was just fine a few minutes later…tough little guy. To see some of our 4th month favorite photos click here.
