What's Up With Evan

Evan. He is a busy guy these days. For about 2-3 weeks he has been able to roll from his back to his belly. Unfortunately he forgets how easy it is to roll back over onto his back and gets pretty frustrated after awhile. Evan always has a big smile for me when I get him out of the crib in the morning or after a nap. We have discovered that he is a Daddy's boy and will stare at Casey wherever he is in the room. Evan frequently squeals in delight when playing and then cracks up laughing. Like his identical twin, Isaac, Evan likes to put up a fight when it comes to sleepy time. The fight is always followed by a crash though! You can spot Evan in pictures with his brothers because he is always looking at the camera and has his mouth open. Just like mommy!!

Evan is an animal. He is a crazy little guy with crazy little arms and legs. You can see in the picture that Evan has socks on his hands. Although he does like doing sock puppet shows for his brothers the main purpose of the socks are to keep him from scratching (you can also see scratches on his forehead). I just can't get his nails short enough...or maybe I can't get him to stay still long enough to cut them. His crazy flailing arms still require swaddling at bedtime and he will surely wake up if he manages to Houdini a hand out. As previously mentioned, he likes to look at Casey all the time. This makes feeding him nearly impossible when Casey is feeding one of the other guys. He turns his head all over and smiles and giggles at him. You can imagine that Casey can't resist to smile back and really get him going:)

Evan has many names. We are always trying out new nicknames for him. He has previously been called Baby A, Evan Arthur Fonzarelli (only I liked this one), and Cheddar Neck (until mom and dad wised up to the secret hidden roll under his chin at bath time). He is currently called E-Man, Mr. Evan, The Hammer (this is Grandpa Grose's favorite), and Steamroller as he will only rollover in one direction. By whatever name Evan is certainly one of a kind!
