Little Evan is now officially four days old, and he’s clearly telling us, “Enough with the pictures already. Okay? Dude!”
Well, he’d better get used to the cameras because for this family, cameras are just another appendage that have to be surgically removed from our hands. We’d no more be without a camera than Seattle would be without a Starbucks on every corner.
Look at that precious face. How can anyone have a bad day when looking at the innocence and sweetness wrapped up in a seven pound blanket burrito?
Gramma stealing kisses. He’d better get used to that too!
And my little kitchen helper yesterday as I cleaned up all the mess leftover from Thanksgiving the day before. His favorite part? The soap bubbles. He’d spoon them from the sink into a huge pan or bowl to his right – making sure to spill lots on the floor and his pants. Of course, we just put a towel on the tile floor and let him have at it. And why not? The joy I get when I have Cayden around me is indescribable.
And don’t let this bored look fool you, folks. She’s still just as excited about her baby brother and is the world’s greatest helper to Mama. And while Mama and baby were napping, she was ever-so-quietly coloring while I sorted yarn and she was chatting to me all about Christmas. What a good little girl she is and how I adore her.
Now, I’d better get busy because one or both of the older ones are going to stay at my house for a while so Mama and baby can go for a checkup and we’ll see how much Evan weighs.
