  • Which hand?

    Evan loves playing “which hand” with us, where he puts something into his hand and offers us both closed hands to choose from. I used to do this with him with the blue-tack (sticky poster gum) and now he’s doing it with us. He’s also quite sneaky, he’ll put the hand that we chose and […]

    Evan loves getting kisses at night. He usually wants another kiss even after turning off the lights and closing the door. Sometimes he calls us back 4-5 times before we insist it’s the last kiss. He’s so cute.

    Evan’s so funny. He’s taken to using the word “Yes”, very clearly enunciated. He used to say “Yeah”, “yep”, “Yup” or a german-sounding “Ja”. I shouldn’t be complaining about the proper use of the english language, but it does make me look bad!

  • Monkey-boy

    Evan likes to call himself monkey-boy, which is what I usually call him when I first get home from work. I think it’s because he acts like a big monkey when I get home. He’ll do silly things like kick his head back and scream loudly, or spin around, or jump on the furniture. I […]
