"OK, maybe it isn't so bad after all! But it's more fun to spit out!"
"Why does my mommy insist on making me look so silly! And what is this strange hat I am wearing?!!"
"Styling my new Oilers Jersey and getting ready for games with daddy!!"
Just some fun pics of Evan. I gave him beef for the first time today. Little harder to get to a nice pureed consistency, but he figured it out! He was blowing bubbles half way through too and I think I ended up wearing most of it!!
We are off for professional pictures tomorrow morning...dogs included! I'm hoping they cooperate, and hoping Evan naps on the way out to the studio!! But in true Evan style I'm sure he will be all smiles when he sees the camera!! I think I have a little GQ on my hands!!
I still have not put out any Christmas decorations. I'm finding it really difficult this year. This December marks the 2 year anniversary of the loss of our first identical twins, and the first year we won't have Zac with us in front of the Christmas tree. At least not physically. He is always with us in our hearts. And I'm missing my little guy so badly this season, as I do every day!
I almost don't want to put up the tree I've used since Brett and I got married. Since our 9+ year journey for a family it has held some sad memories, and I almost just want to start fresh. I'd actually like to put up a REAL tree this year. Hopefully Tag (my male dog) won't think to "Christen" it for us!! But I'm not even sure if we will do that. We'll see. But considering that Christmas is 28 days away...it might be time to start considering getting festive!! Evan deserves a fun Christmas even though he won't understand what's going on.
I sooooooooooooo badly want to take Evan for a picture with Santa, but I'm TERRIFIED to as well because of all the kids and GERMS Santa will be holding!!! We'll see. I'm still not sure. But I wonder if we can take him at the end of a time when there won't be as many children, OR be first to get there. We might just have to skip this year considering we are to stay away from crowded areas. Maybe Brett will dress up if I find a Santa suit!! Anyone have one that we could borrow for a day for a picture!! :) Let me know!!
Evan has been coughing a bit more the last couple of days and a bit stuffed up. But nothing to really concern me (and of all people who would be concerned...it would be ME!!). No wheezing and no temperature and is still in good spirits. So hopefully it is just a tiny bug. And might not be anything anyhow. But regardless, if you could send a little prayer his way just for health and strength for this season.
Anyhow, just wanted to share some more brag pictures.
