What's Evan been up to lately?

Well, I am so glad you asked!  This little boy is busy with always trying to keep up with his brother...although, he is definately different from his brother.

Like Chris pointed out to me, Evan likes to examine a situation before he "jumps in"...he takes his time and decides what he wants to do and where he wants to go.  Most of the time, he decides after watching Nathan for a bit, that piling up the pillows and rolling around and jumping off the couch looks like great fun! 

He is in daycare and is 18 months old...while he hasn't had a bout of sickness like he did in the fall, we just got over hand/foot/mouth, and just today now Daddy is sick with some stomach bug Evan had last week.  This is the worst part about daycare...the constant sicknessess.  Although, I know there is a light at the end of the tunnel, because Nathan rarely gets sick anymore. 

At Christmas, we discovered Evan is scared to death of whoopie cushions...which has now progressed to anyone blowing up a balloon.  He shrieks in terror and runs away, and all we can pretty much do about it is laugh.

Like his brother, he is saying words now, but not streaming together sentences like lots of little girls at this age seem to be able to do.  He love saying Mama, Dada, no, ut-oh, all gone, kitty, (animal sounds), duck....we occasionally will get a sentence out of him like, "no, dat's mine!" but other than that, nothing consistent yet.  It is amazing though that he understands everything I tell him. 

He has never been afraid of snow, or wet, or getting left behind...although slower than his brother, he usually just chugs along, knowing he will eventually catch up.  He loves going down the slides..and gets frustrated he cannot yet climb up them like Nathan.

He loves meat.  If you give him sweets or a piece of roast or chicken, he usually choose the chicken.  We decided he gets this from Grandpa Schwartz. 

He is a thumb sucker...or at least, he always has his thumb in his mouth.  I don't really like it, but it makes him happy.  He hasn't latched onto any stuffed animals or any blankets or anything like that, which I find so odd. 

He makes us laugh with his silliness.  He is a joy!
