Happy 6 months, Evan!

Six months ago today my littlest angel was born. He made his debut faster than I had ever dreamed, and was bigger than I'd ever imagined. I got the epidural that I thought had ruined my life, and my little Lucas became a big brother. I also spent my very first night away from Lucas. EVER.

To celebrate I took Evan to the doctor. His stats are:
Weight: 18 lbs. 10 oz (73%)
Height: 28 in. (92%)
Head: 45 cm. (75%)
Lucas was 18 lbs. 9 oz, 29 in. and 46 cm. Pretty close!

Tonight at dinner Evan got to have solid food for the first time. I whipped up a batch of the finest rice cereal with the most delectable breast milk money can buy. He didn't quite know what to think. He made some really funny faces, and convulsed a bit if he got a thicker bite of cereal. Evan did love to play with the spoon, though. That was his favorite part. It was a mess. My life just got a little bit harder...

Evan is rolling over like a champ. He loves to get into things and he's a big fan of cell phones and remote controls. He cries if you take the remote away from him, just like a man. He is so laid back and relaxed. Evan's quite the dream baby. He laughs at all the silly things Lucas does and thinks I'm pretty hilarious, too. I just love this kid so so so so much. I'm so thankful for him!

I love Clay's comment. :)

I can't believe Evan is already eating cereal. What a big boy!

Clay, you aren't surprised by this, are you?
In my defense - 1) bathtub, 2-3) leaky diaper before dinner 4-6)bath time was before dinner, tv watching after dinner.

so cute! yes, feeding the kiddos solid food makes life hard. i'm back to the whole feeding routine (bottles, changing diapers, then solid food (usually some veggie or fruit or both and rice cereal)) taking an hour!!! at least it only happens 3 times a day with 1 more bottle at bed time (which is a 8 pm! yay!!!!). evan is such a big boy. i need to weigh my boys, but i'm thinking that jonas is about 16 lbs and elliott is about 15 lbs.
