2 Months!

Our little Evan turned 2 months yesterday! We all know what that means-shots! He was pretty ticked for a minute, but then calmed down and fell asleep...hopefully he'll be this good when he's 5? Probably not.

Here are his stats:
11 pounds, 15 ounces (50th percentile)
24 inches (90th percentile)
38 cm head circumference (10th percentile)
Not very happy about his shots...poor little guy!

The Best of Times, The Worst of Times

Me and Evan had a great day yesterday. He slept when he was supposed to sleep and was awake and happy when he was supposed to be awake. We were able to go on a lovely fall walk around the neighborhood.

When Reed got home from school and work we decided we were gonna get Reed's little sister, Marie, to come over and watch Evan after we put him to bed so we could go to the 2nd half of the men's soccer game. It kind of made me feel like a bad mother for leaving him when he's so young. But he was in bed and fed and we were just down the street. But honestly, it felt soooo good! I love my baby, but it was so nice to get out for a little bit with just Reed. Thanks so much Marie-you'll understand what a wonderful thing you did for me once you have your own little one!

Then it was 1 am on night 1 of sleep training. Evan was up for his feeding right on time. I fed him and put him back in bed. Then he was up again at 3:30 ready for his next feeding, 1/2 hour too early. So I gave him the binky and let him wait for about 20-30 minutes. We fed him and put him back to bed. But apparently he was ready to go back to sleep. Apparently he wasn't ready to go back to bed for the next 4 hours until he was supposed to get up! ugh! Needless to say, it was a long night. But shorter than Wednesday night when he did the same thing starting at 11 pm. I love my little guy, but he can be such a stinker! And of course he was all smiles when we got him out of bed this morning! How can you be upset with this face?!
Workin' hard on tummy time!

Evan's Blessing Day

This past Sunday we were able to bless our little Evan at church. Reed did such a wonderful job. Evan was a really good baby and slept through the whole thing. We had such a great weekend with our families and are so thankful to those who traveled far to be here for it. It was such a little miracle-a month ago we didn't even know if we'd be out of the hospital quite yet. We sure do love this little boy and are grateful to have him be a part of our family!

And here are a few of my favorite recent pictures
