Swimming

Saturday, November 27th, 2004

Evan did awesome today at swimming again! He swam with a dumbbell under his arms for around 2-3 minutes! It was amazing to watch, him kicking and moving forward!

Undies

Friday, November 26th, 2004

Evan’s wearing his undies more these days. When we first suggested putting him in underwear, he insisted on wearing his nappy instead. Now I think he likes the freedom that undies give him – the nappies have been tight around his waist for quite some time now. Now he just has to be consistent about going to the loo!

Thump!

Friday, November 26th, 2004

I was working downstairs on the computer, when I heard a fairly loud “THUMP”. Nicole told me the next morning that it was Evan falling out of his bed! I don’t think he’s done that before!

Love

Wednesday, November 24th, 2004

Evan said this the other day:

“I love Mummy, I love Daddy, I love Oma, I love Opa, I love Grandma, I love Cammy (Cameron), I love trees, I love barbeque. That’s all!”

Swimming

Wednesday, November 24th, 2004

Evan made some more awesome progress swimming this past weekend. I put the floatation backpack on, and got him on a flutterboard, and he was able to swim by himself for about 5 metres! Amazing! Whenever he’d slow down or get tired, I’d push the backpack a bit and he’s be off. So cool! Then afterwards, we tried the same things without the backpack, and he swam with the flutterboard for around 2 metres all by himself! He had a bit of trouble staying on the flutterboard, but he did very well. The teacher says that some 4 year-olds have difficulty with that!

Flamingo

Ask Evan to say “Flamingo” and it comes out as “Faladadingo”

Hot food

Thursday, November 11th, 2004

Mummy was eating spicy food, and Evan thought he could cool Mummy down by blowing into her mouth! :)

Drying the rain

Thursday, November 11th, 2004

Evan was playing on the patio after it rained and to dry off the patio, he suggested we “blow on it” or “dry with towel”!

Back scratches

Wednesday, November 10th, 2004

Evan’s inherited something else from me – love of backscratches! He’ll ask me for a backscratch when we’re reading in bed or something, and then tries to give me a backscratch. Very cute!

Singing

Tuesday, November 9th, 2004

Evan’s quite into singing. He’ll just hum along to some unknown song, quite happy doing whatever he’s doing. He’ll also come up with words to books out of nowhere, like the 5 little piggies story. “That’s not slops!” or “Eggs and milk and apples”.
