The Big 18

Evan turned 18 mos old this week. We went to the doctor today and he checked out great. He's 31 lbs heavy and 35 + inches high, he actually hasn't grown much since his 15 mos appt. Maybe he's finally staring to level out.


Sometimes, I can't believe he's a year and a half, and then other times I can. He reaches for our hands and closes his eyes when it's time to say our prayers. He helps me unload the dishwasher. He puts his toys away, sometimes without prompting. He responds to a long list of directives, most of which have to do with how I'm training him to be my own personal butler...

He's an affectionate, opinionated, and strong-willed child and I love him in a way that can't be measured! Happy 18 mos birthday, Evan!!

Wow. He's really quite big for his age. You've got a football player there! I hope the rain dries up & you are able to get to the pool
