Here’s an update for you.
Also, the sitting! The second child sits independently! Whee!
Drool? What drool? When choosing which Sitting Up picture to post, I found only one that didn’t also have a string of drool coming out of Evan’s mouth. I decided that The Drooliest Child Ever should be documented here for all time. Thankfully, all that drool is already a (somewhat) distant memory now that the first tooth recently made an appearance.
Then came September.
September kicked Evan’s butt. First there was a head cold, which became an ear infection, followed immediately by a crazy 103-degree-fever-inducing virus that led to full body hives and a second round of antibiotics just in case the ear infection wasn’t finished. Oh, don’t forget the conjunctivitis that he passed along to me. I haven’t forgotten; I still can’t wear my contacts. =(
October brought a visit from my mom and dad. We really need to get better about taking pictures while they are around, cause I don’t have any with Dad in them. And I have about 5 from their whole visit. Apparently we were too busy chasing Evan around — he crawls!!! We also removed the last of the wallpaper from the house (the boys’ bathroom is a lovely shade of green now); thanks, Mom! Nathan thoroughly enjoyed having grandparents at his disposal and was pretty sad when he found out that his roommates weren’t permanently moving in with him.
Little brother is also letting us know that he is not going to be left behind by his big brother. The crawling around the room from toy to toy exploded quickly into exploring the whole house. He is fast and barely slowed down at all by the step out of the family room and into the kitchen. Look where I found him yesterday.
Big brother is not always amused by his brother’s new abilities. I regularly hear wails of “MOOOOMMMM, move Evan!” or “MMMOOOMMM, come get Evan!”. So far I find it amusing. We’ll see how long that lasts.
