Today, our babydoll turned 1. She wore her birthday hat to school. It is pink and froo froo with a sparkling one on it. In case you are wondering her mother picked it out : ) .

I worked outside all afternoon. So I come inside and Evan says, "Daddy you stink! You need to take a bath. I'll show you where the bathroom is"
He walks me to the bathroom and says, "here daddy. Take a bath. "
I am sitting in the living room and Evan walks up to me, reaches up for me. I pick him up and give him a big hug. He hugs me back then says very sweetly, "I need to poo poo."
We are sitting at the dinner table. Evan has a spoon he is eating his corn with. Suddenly he takes the spoon and puts it in his pants. We asked him, "What are you doing with your spoon?". Evan replies, "I"m putting it in my booty!"
Who knows what he"ll say next.

Evan woke up with a mosquito bite on his face. Lindsay asked him , "Evan what bit you?" Evan replied, "There was a big pink dinosaur outside and he stomped. He came into my house and bit me with his big teeth!"
Quite the imagination.
Addison learned to clap this weekend. She is so proper that it looks like a golf clap : )

This past Friday night Lindsay and I went out together with a group of friends (The Bourbon Mall; awesome place to eat in the middle of stinkin no where!). Lindsay was ironing and Evan came in. He said, "I want to go." Lindsay replied, "Well tonight you have to stay here, because mommie and daddy are going on a date." Evan says, "I want to go on a date." Lindsay asks, "Do you want to ask Mary Wright (friend from daycare) on a date?" "No, she not my friend!" Evan says. Lindsay then asks, "Who is your friend?" Evan says, "Abigail (this is the daughter of our pastor, who is 9)" "Do you want to ask her on a date" says Lindsay. "Yeah!!" Evan exclaims.

Evan had his first pre-school program last night. He didn't cry but he didn't do much else either.
I spent all afternoon trying to find my camcorder charger so, as good parents, we could have video of this beautiful childhood moment. No luck.
I finally text my friend Steve and he lets me use their camera (which turned out to be great because it is High Definition, :) ).
We get to First Presbyterian Church here in Greenville, a thunderstorm is barreling through and there is like a thousand people there. Ok, there weren't a thousand people there, but sure felt like it.
We get Evan detached from Lindsay's leg to stay with his teacher and go into the sanctuary. You can hear all the kids going crazy in the room next to the sanctuary. It was kinda like in a movie when there is a noise behind a door and the character opens the door and this monster jumps out on them. I felt that if I had opened that door the monster of pre-schoolers would have rampaged me.
So the program starts and the kids begin to sing, but Evan pretty much does nothing. He smiles, waves, sits by his teacher, folds his arms, walks over and plays with the mic stand. I am standing there with the camera waiting for the beautiful childhood moment and it never comes.
At least he didn't pull his pants of like he did at the house the other day.
I guess there is always next year.

You never know how funny life can be until children come along.

Evan is getting very smart. He can almost count to ten in Spanish and likes to speak Mandarin when he watches Ni hao Kai lin (it is a tv show on Noggin).
This past Sunday we had a interesting conversation at lunch time. Evan was drinking milk and had some corn and peas on his plate:
Evan: Milk, mmm good
Me: Happy Milk comes from Happy Cows
Evan: Yeah, haha
Me: Evan, eat some corn. Cows eat corn.
Evan: Cows EAT grass!!
Addison is doing well over all. She is sleeping better through the night now. She usually sleeps abut 5 1/2 hours, which is awesome. She has started to smile (she has smiled more at me than Lindsay, ha). Addison is still having stomach trouble. So in March we will go to see a GI specialist in Jackson. Everything the radiologist saw here looked fine, but he still recommended we visit a specialist to be sure.
Overall we are doing well. Lindsay has started back to work part-time and finds the break to be refreshing. We would love to hear from you so catch up with us!

Addison is growing and growing. She is probably up close to 8 lbs now and is out growing clothes. What a difference six weeks makes. Overall she is doing really well. We are having to supplement some soy milk to help her out with tummy issues.
We definately have a lap baby who likes to be held all the time. We are almost to the point of giving her the nickname HM: High Maintenance. We haven't made it yet, but we are surely discussing the possibility, :).
Evan is doing really well. He is learning to go potty and wearing pull-ups. Thankfully his daycare is assisting in the process. He has been going once or twice a day on his own. Lindsay and I wondered the other day what it will be like when we never know when a child goes to the bathroom, ha.
We hope all is well with everyone and catch up with us!
