first of all >>> Just wanted to say thank you for all of the SWEET SWEET comments on the nursery... i love being able to share it here. So thanks for sharing the fun of it with me ;)
& So i've been doing the quarterly updates for ev this year, and we are now really at 2 years 10 months - craziness! - but i wanted to sneak in his 2 years 9 months update (or 2 and 3 quarters!) before it was just too late...
and this pic actually does qualify for "2.75 years" - so at least i'm not cheating there ;0)
and so at 2 years, 9 months, Evan...
...is a crazy talker. He picks up anything you say and knows what it means/is - or he will clarify with you. He tells people "excuse me" in the store as we pass them in the aisle with our shopping cart, bc i guess i said it a couple of times?! He also will say "nice to see you" to the person in front of us at the checkout register. And tell the grocery store clerk all about the bakery cookie that he just devoured. ;)
...is our official "fire hydrant" spotter. While we are driving can spot one from FAR away and shouts "FIRE HYDRANT - YEWYOW! (yellow)" or "FIRE HYDRANT - RED!".
...thinks that there are two types of cars - race cars and jeeps. & Classifies every car on the road as one or the other. Trucks are separate entity though ;)
...insists that he is having a baby sister. ;) we may have a problem there??
...likes to "dip it" when it comes to chips -- will eat salsa on a chip no matter how spicy, or guacamole, or cheese dip. which is kind of amazing bc he is such a PICKY eater otherwise. although he did have his first McD's hamburger a couple of weeks ago. We were so proud ;)
...could read books for hours. current faves are any and all thomas the train books, his sesame street neighborhood book, the classic "farm book", the big red barn, and occasionally will choose one of his Eric Carle books (which i love).
...loves seeing "kids playing sports" in the school fields as we pass each day. he will say "ooooh, kids playing soccer" or "oooooh, kids playing basketball" in awe.
...will only wear sneakers. ONLY. too bad so sad crocs that momma loves. ;(
...wants to chase toby around the house nonstop all day. wants toby to "come play trains". i have to rescue tobes. poor poor poodle.
...is about to become a big brother so very soon!!!
