So the operator was calling to talk to me about my current plan (I could hear someone in the background saying the stuff so I'm assuming he was training). Basically after fumbling around on our account he comes up with these numbers (we have two cell lines):
First line: 131 texts
Second line: 28 texts
Total this month: 159 (and the month ends in 4!! days)
Our free limit: 200
Our current plan: $69 + 6 for texts
He proposes: $99 to included free texting
So I say "You are asking us to add $24 to our bill?? In case we can't keep to 40 texts in the next 4 days??"
He was pretty quiet.
I also told him they need to do a little more math before they bother calling me in the middle of the day.

He was rewarded with dinner at Chick Fil A. We also got pictures done, so all in all a productive night.
But I miss the fly away hair...........

I struggle with explaining to people every year that cold does not always equal unhappy to everyone. To me mostly cold = refreshing. Can you tell I'm not a summer person unless I'm in a pool or the ocean?
I own a very large stuff Winnie the Pooh, a very dear friend gave it to me years ago. I decided to use it as a 'growth' chart for Evan. I took pictures of him with it every month, later I will put all twelve together in some fashion. For now here is the beginning to end. :)

* He loves cell phones, when he gets one in his hand, he wings it up to his ear and starts talking out load. Then he switches to the other ear. (Guess he doesn't want to wear them out). But even funnier are the other things he uses as phones, usually tv remotes, but one time my deodorant.
* He doesn't say many words, most of his verbal stuff is descriptive --- oohhh, aaahhh, ooooos, something like that. And they are hilarious.
--- He farts loud, looks at me, Oh!.
--- He drops something on purpose, oooohh.
--- And when you pick him up (he's over 26 pounds already), he says uhhh, like he's the one doing the work.

So here goes.
WHOHOO: Someone at my work hipped me to the fact that we could access lite.facebook.com. So I could see people's updates, but skip the junk (and facebook is blocked otherwise so yea!).
DAMMIT: That person had discovered it from a post made on our own 'facebook-like' posting board here at work. Well that posting board is run by the people in IT, so after 4 days of fun, lite is no longer.
Maybe I will post these from now on with labels more to the words I use daily. Maybe.....
or something like that.

365 days ago, our son was born. It still is hard to believe. Now he is a walking (wobbly), talking (okay only he knows what he's saying) small person. Who steals my Capri Sun and sucks it down when I'm not looking. Who holds the cell phone up to his ear and talks out loud to who knows who. Who says "bwoons" to his birthday balloons. Who claps to himself for random things.
Here he is at his birthday party, the do-rag only lasted a minute.
Evan went through his first real sickness week ago, some summer virus thing, that came with a high fever, followed by an all over rash. And his first throw up, all over me. Yuck. To top it off he started to get his molars, so he was beyond miserable. We took this picture during all of this, and he had fallen asleep on mommy's chest so he was all sweaty. Just looks a disaster. The picture does not do him justice. :)
We also stopped at Rehoboth Beach for the day over the Labor Day Weekend. He was having a great time crawling around in the sand until a wave snuck up the beach and soaked him. I got a picture not long after this, it is a favorite of mine.

Evan is growing fast. He will be a year old in less than a month. I can hardly believe it.
Today he took two steps on his own, although he thought that once he was standing on his own, it was more fun to dance than to walk, so we will see how it goes. Matt and I are constantly amazed at the things he picks up, and how quickly he changes from day to day. And we are constantly chasing him too :).
Matt took this picture a few days ago in our front yard. He hardly seems like a baby anymore.

This jellyfish is a picture I am particularly proud of, taken at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. We visited with some family, and Evan seemed to think it was pretty neat. I took this photo on manual mode (meaning I had to make some decisions). Although it could use some touching up in Photoshop, overall I think it came out well. Their new jellies exhibit is pretty neat.
Evan made me a picture frame at daycare for my first Mother's Day present ever (it appears he had help since he didn't come home with glue all over his hands). It feels great to be a mom, although so busy at times I can't think, I wouldn't trade it for anything. And I'm excited thinking that it will get better and better.

I can't believe I'm already slacking on something I've hardly started. Boo! My hopes are to keep people updated with what is happening in our lives, so I'm going to try harder to keep up.
Evan turns 8 months old in 8 days, I can't believe how quickly the time has gone. Here is a picture taken a few weeks ago by Matt, in his cool new floppy.

Getting the blog started. Here's Matt and Evan at Matt's first game back on the ice (about 2 weeks old). Very tiny, and not too excited to be there. Check out the Nordiques onesie.
Then you can see us at my first game back, a bit bigger. He does love to hang out in the locker room.
