My how time flies. I know I say that every time I blog, but NOTHING could be more true. Honestly before I know it WEEKS have gone by.
When Evan was first born we would count his weeks “Oh he is 5 weeks old” that turned into months “He is 4.5 months” which has now turned to half years “He is one and a half” *sobs*
He has grown so much and continues to blow me away with his knowledge. He is full on bilingual. He knows more Spanish and can go back and forth better then Hector can :) It blows me away! Typically we ask “More?” and he will say “mas, si” haha or we will say “Say thank you” and he will say “gracias” yesterday he did another phrase and I remember being so blown away because I just am so proud. I’ve of course forgotten it, but will have to wrack my brain because it was a good one!! He knows his first swear word in Spanish and I laugh so hard when he says it that I’m sure he will continue to say it more and more. Evan sings the birthday song, old McDonald, and takes stabs at everything else. He knows all his objects, hats, socks, food, water (agua), toys, car, ipad, tv, shoes, boots (yep knows the difference), bed, bath, oso…. etc really the list is endless. He knows people! Points and everything Colie, Gamma (or Debbie!), Abue, Hector, Daddie, Josh (Tio, Tio, Tio), Naci (Nancy), JOE!, Joey, and of course Mama… haha <3 He is perfection. He speaks in phrases, says everything in context and is just amazing. Really how did I get so lucky?
As much as I loved squishy baby phase, I must say this independent toddler phase is a blast. He is just so curious and funny and I love watching his personality. I honestly just stare at him sometimes as if I cannot believe he is real, I cannot imagine my life without him and there is nowhere I’d rather be then with him. I love how he laughs, and how boyish he is. He is a little dare devil! I want to soak up as much of it as I can! He makes me so happy, and proud (did I say that already?).
We had his 18 month checkup and it of course went very well (he needs a haircut, I know but I can’t bring myself to do it):
27lbs 1oz (90th percentile for weight) 34.5 inches tall (98th percentile for height) – He is perfectly proportioned but definitely a big guy, and very strong.
Must be all the green drinks ;-)
He is a great eater – not picky at all and has almost all his teeth, definitely a full mouth.
I’m thinking paper airplanes or nautical themed. We shall see… I went a little crazy last year and hope to scale back haha:
Scary that I’m opening my brain to that once again. We should probably just go on vacation instead :) lol.
I am so over the moon with my little guy. Happy Half Birthday To You:
(thanks for still cuddling <3 )
