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!

Yard Progress

Quick story...
Last night, Evan and I were outside watching James "smoosh" the rocks into place by walking on them. When he finished, Evan was itching to get down. He loves to walk with you holding his hands, so of course that was what he was wanting. As soon as I put him down, he headed right for the flower beds. He stepped over the pavers and into the rocks. He was so funny picking his feet up and down "smooshing" the rocks like his daddy. It makes you really think about them watching everything we do and wanting to be a lot like us. My prayer is that he will see his daddy and me loving and serving Jesus every day.
It is so funny to see how things can really transform with a lot of hard work (mostly thanks to James!!). Here is a picture of our house the December after we moved in...
And this was taken last night. What a difference a new tree, new plants and shrubs and some rocks can do! It looks a lot better from the curb now!!My annuals that I am so proud of...they are not dead yet!! haha

Our tree in the front yard. I thought it was supposed to have blooms...
still no sign of flowers yet!

Gotta add a few more rocks...
Our beautiful Japanese Red Maple
This tree was little when we got it. I love to watch the leaves change colors.

James did such a good job on this walkway. I think it turned out beautiful!
Now, on to the back yard!!!

Father's Day 2009

I can not tell you how much you mean to me. Watching you fall in love with Evan more and more each day is such a blessing. He adores you. I can see it in his smile and hear it in his laugh. Because of you, our family is complete. Thank you for being you, for loving Evan and me the way you do, for providing and protecting us. We could not ask for a better leader for our home. You are a treasure and I love you very much! I hope your first Father's Day was one you will always remember! Hugs and Kisses Forever and Always!!
To the most wonderful daddy a girl could ask for: I hope your Father's Day was filled with lots of happiness and memories you can hold on to forever. I am so glad we were able to come see and spend some quality time with you! You are the best! We love you so much!!!
The kiddos and Daddy
Evan LOVES Big Daddy!!
Evan thought it was a lot of fun to help his daddy open his presents!

"From the first day I was here, it was easy to see, you are the most perfect Daddy for me!" -How sweet!!
