Evan's One Year Photos

Finally! We are back in business! Now, I should be able to catch everyone up with what all has been going on with us! These are some of the pictures from Evan's one year photo shoot. We actually did one-where he would not smile like he usually does, so our wonderful photographer met us earlier this month and took some additional shots. He did great that day. Of course, it was 30 degrees and I had him dressed in linen...oh, well! He didn't get sick and the pictures turned out great.
Evan is bringing more and more joy to our lives each and every day. I am not working right now, so I am enjoying being home with him. It has been so much fun watching his milestones develop. His little personality has really bloomed! He is such a ham. He loves to give hugs and kisses, which makes me a very happy mommy! His smile makes me melt and he knows it. Not only does he know it, he uses it!! He has learned early! haha
he was getting a little sleepy on us...

my little climber doing what he does best...

More fun things to come...please check back soon!
We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!!

Beach Pictures

Here are a few pictures from our family vacation this past July. It is taking forever just to upload one picture, so it may take me several days (weeks) to catch up. Please keep checking the blog for updates.
We had such a good time at the beach. Evan loved the sand...I think I got my wish for a beach baby! I am so excited for the summers to come as we return to make more memories with our little man. Enjoy the pics!

Don't know what the trouble is...

I have tried and tried to update the blog, but have had so much trouble. As soon as I can, I will post pictures of all that has been happening. Evan had his 1st birthday back in August and what fun we had. He is walking and in to everything. He is a climber, so I have to watch him at all times! He is learning more words and you can tell he is really paying attention to what we say and the tone we are using...which is kinda scary!! :) He is learning so much and his personality is precious!! I can't wait to get some pictures up so you all can see how much he has changed over the past several months.

James and I are doing well. Staying busy. More to come! We love you all! Please keep checking back, I will keep trying to post!

Long Time, No Post

Sorry for the long time between posts, things have been busy around the Talley house! For some reason our computer has been weird tonight, so I will try to post again tomorrow night and catch everyone up. This picture is from Evan's Baby Dedication. We had such a great time with family and friends. More details to come. Also, check back for Evan's 1st beach trip pictures! We had a great time, Evan LOVED the beach! It is so hard to believe that our little man will be one in just a couple of weeks. Planning is in full swing.

Happy Birthday America!!

We celebrated the 4th with friends for a grilled hamburger/ hotdog dinner and then fireworks over the Coosa River. I thought Evan would scream when the fireworks began, but he really seemed to enjoy them. We had a wonderful day together!
Here we are, the Talley Trio!
Before the fireworks, Evan was asleep on James. It was WAY past his bedtime!!
After the first BOOM....Evan woke up!!

Watching the fireworks light up the sky! WOW!!!

They were beautiful this year.

I was trying to get a sweet picture with my little man and he couldn't take his eyes off the sky!

Growing Older...Does it Get Easier???

To start our wonderful weekend together, James and Evan took me out to eat Friday night for my birthday. I chose Outback and it was SSSOOO good! Thanks James and Evan for making my night so special! You are two of the most special and important men in my life. I can't imagine growing older with anyone other than you guys! I love you so very much!!!

Say CHEEZE.....

Evan giving me sweet birthday kisses! He has the best sugar ever!!!

I know you all remember back in the day when taking pictures with your "special someone" in the car....well, James and I had not taken one since we were dating, so we decided Friday night was as good a time as any!! haha
(I don't look a day older than 21, RIGHT???!!!)
Evan helped me open my present. He and James bought me Wii Fit. I had been saying I wanted one. Now, I have to put it to use. I am sure it is gonna kick my hind end!!!

James was singing "Happy Birthday" to me in this ridiculously loud, off key voice and this is what Evan thought about it....
My beautiful cake that James made for me. It was a 3 layer key lime cake with cream cheese icing. Mmmm, Mmmm, Good!! Thanks again James for taking the time to bake me a wonderful cake. It was fabulous!

Henry Turns 2!

On June 27th, we celebrated Henry's 2nd birthday with food, fun and WATER!! We had a great time in the sun! Thanks Henry for inviting us to your birthday party. We hope you had as much fun as we did! We love you!!!
Evan and the birthday boy, Henry

I think he was trying to convince James he needed to go back to playing in the water...
Feeling it out...
He was not so sure he wanted to be in the water!

There's the smile we all love so much!!

Evan was unsure about the slip and slide, but his daddy and I enjoyed watching him on it!!!

Time for LUNCH!
Look at that hair....

Enjoying his first ever was chocolate and oh so good! His daddy slipped him a little ice cream while I was not looking. He loved it all so much, he had a bit of a fit when it was all gone.

Playing with Robo!

While shopping in Target several weeks ago, James found this Robot gadget that he said "Evan needed." We got it and Evan LOVES it. It will play music and dance so Evan has to dance a long with it. He likes to chase it around the living room. Pete is scared to death of this thing. It brings lots of laughter to the Talley home!!

10 months old already!!

WARNING: This post is FILLED with pictures!!
It is so hard to believe that Evan will be 10 months old in 2 days!! It seems like just yesterday we found out we were expecting!! His birthday supplies came in the mail yesterday! WOW! Almost 1!!! These pictures are from his 9 month shoot. Leslie did a great job (as always). She always captures the faces I love the most! Evan did a great job and the weather was beautiful! My little man is growing too fast! Daddy was busy working in the yard, but Evan and I were able to get a couple of shots together. ENJOY!!

Our serious look...

What a sweet smile!

To know him is to love him!

One of my favorites...
