a quick update


This is a picture of Daddy at his first day of work. We surprised him at the office!!!

We are now the proud Foster family of one of the sweetest dogs I know. Karalee (Amanda's sister) had to give up her dog for the next 6 months or so. We are soooooo excited to have him with us right now. Snoopy is sweet, loving, playful, obedient, and he sleeps in! What else could you ask for??? Seriously though, we are just thrilled to have him in our lives right now and it warms my heart to see how much Evan loves him!!!! Isn't he cute??

I can't believe it took me this long to post these pictures ... man I am getting bad at this! February 4th some girls all went out to celebrate Kathy's birthday. It was really nice to go out to dinner again after such a long strike against "going out". I even bought guilt free salmon! Silvana brought her 4 week old baby Milo. I had to post a picture. I could not get over how CUTE he is!!!

I just thought this picture of Granny Lanny and Evan was beautiful. I had to share it!

I said that I would post a video of Evan using his stander. I opted for a video of one of the first times he was in it. Enjoy!

That's what I've been waiting for - the video!!!! He is so much happier and that makes me happy! I am so proud of how Evan has taken to his stander. I love all his smiles while he's in it!!!

Oh, and I forgot to say how fun for Evan to have a little playmate - Snoopy!

Not a bad name for a dog, Snoopy ! All you need now is the Red Baron.

Kyra!! I have to tell you I have been to your blog a few times. My heart reached a little when I first read of Evan's diagnosis. But I couldn't think of 2 people who seem to be more prepared for such a special boy!

I LOVE that video! You guys must be so proud and excited!! What a smart little guy! It just makes my heart leap for joy! How cool!

Love the video...Evan is so cute:) I love hearing him talk!! Evan looks so happy with snoopy...maybe you will just have to keep him:) I will miss you guys while I am in San Diego, but if it makes you feel any better, it is supposed to rain the entire time, so I might have to get the fake vitamin D when I get back...we can tan together after cycling:)

Kira - I've just blazed through almost a months worth of posts - I can't believe I've missed so much! The video is so exciting, thank you for sharing it with us. Evan is awesome and so sweet. I can't get over his smile in pictures - it always makes me smile:) It looks like he really loves the water too. Ok Alex is waking up so I have to go. We miss you guys - Oh and I will answer my V-day tag during Alex's next nap.
