Playing with Carson

Last night we went over Bart and Lisa's house for dinner. The boys had a lot of fun playing together. Carson showed Evan how to color and play in his diner. The boys also chased each other around the kitched. Carson was funny with Evan, he crawled with him and imitated all of Evan's sounds.
I love when Evan sits with his legs crossed.

It is a beautiful weekend. We put on Evan's new summer clothes and shoes and headed outside.
We played for a long time in the neighbor's jump house. He loved it. He loves playing with and watching all of the older kids.

Then he came inside and had a snack at his little table.

We took Evan to the zoo today. He seemed to enjoy it and pointed at some of the animals. He was especially interested in the fish and the goats in the petting zoo. It was a beautiful day to be outside!

COSI with Caden

Evan and I went to COSI with Kim, Joe and Caden on Tuesday. The boys had fun playing with the blowing balls and splashing in the water.

One Year Old!

Monday was Evan's first Birthday. We had his pictures taken.....he was NOT in a good mood, so they weren't the greatest, but at least his outfit was cute.
He ate another piece of cake, and seemed to enjoy it more this time.

Today was his one year doctor's appointment. He weighed 23lb 6 oz and is 30 1/2 inches. The doctor also noticed that another top tooth popped through, which would explain his crankiness. She said he is doing great developmentally!

Kid's Meal

We ordered Evan his first Kid's Meal at Max and Erma's on his Birthday. He had a chicken breast and broccoli. He only ate about a fourth of it.....but at least Adam and I didn't have to
share with him!

Evan is officially walking on his own now! He still only takes about 6-7 steps at a time, but will take off unprompted now.

1st Birthday Party

Yesterday we had Evan's Birthday party in our newly finished basement. We had a great time and Evan got a lot of fun new toys and summer outfits. Here are some pictures from the day.

Eating crackers with Grandpa
Sitting on Great Grandma's lap.

We did an Elmo theme because he loves his Sesame Street books and always giggles when he sees it on TV. My friend Sheila made the cakes.

Opening presents:

Waiting patiently for his cake while everyone sang to him.
Evan was not really in to smashing the cake. He just took some bites of the icing and then picked off Elmo's eyes.

Then he decided to feed some to Daddy.

Here he is playing with his friend Caden. Everyone loved the dancing and singing Brobee from Uncle Aaron.
