Dear Evan

Dear Evan,
Oh my, we cannot believe that you are already two years old and a big brother!  You are such a perfect addition to our family and we are so blessed and lucky to have you.  The memories from everything that happened after your birth and how sick you were are still fresh in my mind, but I take one look at you and all is right in this world.  I do believe that your rough start to life gave you that extra spark and wild factor.  You are one of a kind and we are so proud to be your parents…….even though there are plenty of moments when I just shake my head and can’t believe you are my child.  Listening, sitting still and patience are not your strong points, but you are a sweet little boy that makes us laugh all of the time.  You are a daddy’s boy and could care less if I was around or not. 
We celebrated your birthday with an outdoor camping theme birthday.  You love to be outside and being cooped up inside in the winter is hard.

Just a little craft that involved glue....always a favorite

  You have way too much energy and I wish I could bottle some of that up for myself.  You still have to be supervised every waking moment or you will get into something you are not supposed to.  You love to help......unfortunately most of the time your help creates more work, but it is so sweet that you constantly want to help out. You recently started talking a lot more.  You are putting sentences together now.  You understand everything in German and English and you still have your own language.  You have lots of words that you have made up and most times these words are not even close to the German or English word, so we have no idea where you get them from.  A lid is "gogo", scissors are "so", to color is "a", different one is "hip hone", a fork or spoon is "beef", which you also say when its time to brush your teeth.  You love to eat and some of your favorite things are "sauce" which actually means sausage and "balls", which means meatballs. 
You also really like "houp", but it gets a little messy
One of your favorite things is to go into the pantry and try to sneak a piece of chocolate.  Here is your face when I caught you
I made some zucchini muffins the other day and you wanted one, so you got yourself a platter out
Your fashion choices are quite love to put on Hannah's clothes
You added daddy's shoes to Hannah's shorts
And then you added your helmet and this is how we left the house to  pick up Hannah from school
Or you like to wear Nora's hat or Hannah's dresses or her leotard

You recently got a hair cut and your sister requested spiky hair.
Needless to say you keep us entertained and on our toes.  We are so thankful that your blood pressure has been stable.  We have an appointment with your nephrologist next week to talk about next steps.  
We love you to the moon and back!
