Happy First Birthday Evan

I can't believe my little boy turned one year old today.  I know I sound like a broken record, but what a crazy year we have had.  I remember the day of his birth and the following weeks like it was yesterday.  The last few weeks leading up to his birthday have been a little tough for me. It's bringing back a lot of emotions and I am reliving everything that happened to him and I am just so thankful that he is here today to celebrate his first birthday.  Today is more than just a birthday to us.  It is a day we have been looking forward to for a while.   We are so proud of him and the fight he put up.

We started his special day with pictures and cake this morning.  Here is a sneak peak from our photo session this morning (these are just from my phone).  This little boy has a little bit of a sweet tooth.....actually there is not much he doesn't like.

 He loves to feed himself and eats everything we eat and it does get a little messy:)
Blackberries are so good and messy

He is such a sweet boy and we can't even remember life without him.  He is quite busy and does not sit still very long.  He loves to play in the playroom.  He loves his walker and is starting to stand hands free more often.  He loves to unroll toilet paper, open every cabinet door, move things from drawer to drawer,  put lids on things and put everything in his mouth especially paper. He laughs at the silliest things Hannah does.  He says "oh oh" a lot (he always says it right before he drops something from his highchair), he says "dada" and looks at Scott and sometimes he even says "mama".
He is probably around 24lbs and almost 31 inches tall (we get exact stats at his appointment tomorrow) and has 8 teeth.  What a big boy.  

He loves to play with my empty tea cup and he was very proud when he got a little bit of foamed milk out of there....
We are going in for Evan's heart ECHO and kidney ultrasound on Thursday.  Praying that everything looks good and normal!

We love you to the moon and back!
