He's a mover and a shaker!

It's hard to believe that our little "Super Trooper" Evan is already almost 10 months old!  This year has flown by!  Time needs to slow down.  We are trying to enjoy every minute of him being so little.

We received good new on Evan's lab results after his last checkup back in April.  We have thankfully been able to discontinue the Aspirin.  He has not has to take any more medications!  We do not have to go back to Texas Children's until January of 2014 to see his Rheumatologist!

We have had a very busy and exciting summer.  It has been crazy being home with 3 kids all day every day!  They are keeping me busy for sure!  We started the summer with a family vacation with my sister Andrea and her family to Gulf Shores Alabama.  Evan's first trip to the beach!  He was not very fond of the waves but he enjoyed the pool!   Colten and Liliana had a great time also!  They always love our annual trip to the beach.

Colten attended a Cub Scout day camp the week after we got back from Gulf Shores.  He really enjoyed himself.  They get to practice archery and shoot BB Guns.  He loved it!

Liliana attended Summer Workshop at her dance school.  She loves to do this every summer.  She really enjoys learning some hip hop moves and spending time with her friends!

Just this past week, Eddie's parents and our 2 nephews came to visit from Monahans.  They traveled 12 hours to come visit!  We had a great time.  The kids played well together and Grandma and Grandpa were able to spend some quality time with them.  Evan warmed up to them quickly and was showing off for them in no time!

He has grown so much this summer.  He started to pull up while were in Gulf Shores and there has been no slowing him down since!  Now he is starting to cruise along the furniture.  I'm pretty sure he will be walking in the next month or two.  We are so blessed that he is doing so well!  He is seriously one of the happiest babies I have every met.  You would never guess that he was ever so sick.  His smile can light up a room.  His little personality is really starting to come out and let me tell you, he has a BIG personality!
