Happy Halloween!

Monday, October 31st, 2011

We had a super cool Superman costume for Evan this year, but Evan did not want to put it on!  So, we improvised and he made a convincing cowboy with his trusty steed.  He liked to gallop around and say Yee-Ha once he got all dressed up.

Pumpkin Patch

Monday, October 31st, 2011

We made the drive to Bates Nut Farm this year, which is a much bigger venue than we’ve done in the past, but it gets crowded fast!  Evan enjoyed tromping through the fields of “Big Daddy” pumpkins, but he eventually found the perfect pumpkin that he could pick up and take home. :)  He liked the hay ride around the farm and checking out all the goats and pigs and ponies!

Good Morning Daddy

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

This morning, Evan climbed on top of me in bed and said, “Good morning Daddy. Muffin, watch Ger… Let’s go!” It was the first time he said “Good morning” :)  His favorite breakfast has become Mommy’s home-made muffins.  Ger = Curious George, we let him watch some PBS shows while I get ready for work in the morning. George is the hands and feet down favorite.  Sometimes, if sesame street is on, he says, “No Elmo, Ger!”

It’s Mine!

Monday, October 24th, 2011

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!’

I Miss Daddy

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Evan and Daddy had a lot of fun playing with the Meerkats and Mr. Potato head this morning. After Daddy had to go to work, Evan came up to Mommy and said, “I miss Daddy.”

Go to work Daddy

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

Daddy had to work late on Tuesday and missed the bedtime routine and Evan didn’t exactly go to sleep with Mommy putting him down, so he was still up past 9:30 pm, when Daddy got home. The next night, after our goodnight song and right before we say goodnight to Mommy and head to bed, Evan said, “Go to work, Daddy.”

Preschool Right Now

Thursday, October 13th, 2011

Evan had another good day at preschool today. :)  So, we’re pretty confident at this point that it is all going to work out.  Here’s a video of him from the night before, ready to go!

Teeth Brushing

Wednesday, October 12th, 2011

Teeth brushing has been a fight for a long time, but for the last week or so Evan is happy to say “Ahhh” and just let us do it for the prospect of two extra stories before bed.  Anything to push back bedtime!  He loves how proud we are of him when he lets us do it too!

Preschool breakthrough

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

Evan protested being dropped off this morning, but the teachers said that he did great! They said it was like he was a different kid, happy and active all day. :) Hooray!

EH – Van

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

Evan started saying “Evan” today!  It’s been Eh-Nah or Ah-Nah for a long time.

We’ve been working on pointing out vans in parking lots, but preschool today may deserve the credit…

pre-haircut :o)
