I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord
Psalm 27: 13-14

Oh the new adventures of life!!

We introduced Evan to his Jolly Jumper! SOOOO funny!! He LOVES it!!!!
Dancing boy! Totally River Dance feet!! The arms stay at his side, but his feet and legs don't stop moving!!
Pausing for a pose!
Daddy is loving this!!! Evan's seat cover for fall/winter. Snug as a bug in a rug!
Well, this week we introduced Evan to his Jolly Jumper. He caught on instantly as to what he was supposed to do, and his little feet and legs didn't stop moving at all!!! So much so that he bounced so much he spat up all over the rug! Too funny!!
He has realized his independence in that thing, and my oh my is he ever proud of himself!!
Today I unpacked the zillion pieces to put together for his exersaucer, and as soon as I get that thing built I KNOW Evan is going to go crazy for that too!!!!! He is one active little guy! So it will be perfect.
We've also started going for our morning walks without him in his car seat bucket, but sitting up in the stroller like a big boy! He adores his walks, which is EXCELLENT for me!!! Lots of motivation! Plus the dogs have been doing so well with behaving themselves as we walk. They proudly walk beside Evan.
I've quickly learned that Evan does not do well when he misses a nap! The past couple days he missed his morning nap and oh my...the poor kid!! He made up on some serious sleep today!!
Last night we had family dinner at my parents. Brett had left early because he had hockey, and by 9pm Evan was DONE!! So I packed him up and we headed home. He was asleep before I even got him in to the car. When we got home I put him in his bassinet (yes yes, he is still in his pack n' play bassinet by my side of the bed! NOT ready to move him to his crib yet!!). I thought about heading to living room to watch some TV, but instead I called Tag and Bailey in to my room and let them climb in to bed with me. They haven't been able to do that since I was pregnant with Zac and Evan!! They were in heaven. And I was out cold!! How funny...before Evan I would have been watching TV or out and about and the late evening wouldn't phase me. Now I'm ready to crash by 9pm!!!
Anyhow, just wanted to share the jolly jumper pictures!


  1. What a cutie! Don't move to that crib too soon! I love having a bassinet and I usually keep my kids in it forever ;-) Until they can sit up that is! Lydia JUST moved to her crib a week or two ago...and she is 8 months. So you have to wait for Evan to hit that corrected age ;-) lol He is SO cute! Thinking of you often.

  2. Precious pics Heather! The jolly Jumper looks like SO much fun! What a handsome, gorgeous boy!
    Thoughts and prayers with you always.xxx
