All About Evan

Things here have been going very well. Evan has adjusted better than we could have ever asked for. The Lord has blessed us with one special little boy from China! He has welcomed us into his life with smiles on his face. 

Evan loves to make silly faces. You may have nocticed in some of our pictures he crosses his eyes. He loves to do this when we take his pictures and will sometimes stick his tongue out to the side of his mouth. He cracks up if you do it back to him. You might notice that Evans little lips automatically turn down so if he is the least bit upset it is sometimes hard to tell. When he does not want to do something he does this little full body dance/fit. He has silent tears which makes even harder to tell when he is upset. He has only cried a handful of times.

We have no bathroom problems. Well we have to tell him to go at times but other than that no problems. He did spit a couple of times but when he saw that we disapproved of that he has since stopped. He was a bit rough physically the first week with us but he is MUCH better now. He is learning to chew his food with his mouth closed. The only thing we really have had to get on him about is blaming others.
In the above picture I have an antenna of a remote control car stuck in my hair and he is blaming Taylor for it. As you can see by the look on Taylor's face she is shocked that he is blaming her. Bob just happened to snap this picture as it all unfolded.

I may have mentioned this before but he does not feel the need to eat everything on his plate. If he does not like the food he will tell us. He does try all new foods though. He is not a picky eater. This past week we did bring him to Chinese twice though. He was in heaven! After we were all done and I was putting my jacket on he wrapped his arms around my waste and gave me a big hug. I think he liked his lunch.

I will post about his hearing test on both sites tomorrow but after that we will posting over on our family blog. Thanks for following along! :)

  1. Very cute. My Pearl has been home for almost 4 years now and I still have a hard time getting her to eat with her mouth closed.
