Baby G is 4!!!

Holy crap, time flies!

Evan - or Baby G, as we called him when he was in my belly - turns 4 years old today!

I don't even know how to summarize the last 4 years, because there has been so many thing and so many changes!

Lots of things have changed with Evan - he's getting more and more independent, he loves making new friends, and his interests are ever-expanding. Things surprise me, like the fact that he LOVES Food Factory, and his level of empathy for people and animals. He really enjoys drawing, and likes "teaching" us :). He loves school so much that he sometimes has a fit when we pick him up and have to go home!

Somethings don't change, which still surprises me! He still loves all things truck-related, and he really enjoys helping out in the kitchen. He's uncomfortable in new situations, but jumps right in after he gets more comfortable. His catch-phrase could be "I can't do it"...even if he can, or just did. He still likes to cuddle with us, which I love, of course. His interest about the world around him is contagious, even if all the questions can drive us a bit batty.

It's been amazing to witness him turn from a newborn, to a toddler, to a preschooler, and now a full-fledges full-day school kid. Even though sometimes I want time to stop so he can stay the same for a while, I cannot wait to see when and how he changes next.

Love you, Evanpotamus! Happy 4th!!
