Gary's birthday, Evan's haircut, & 8 months old!

We celebrated Gary's birthday on Friday, August 14th. We had a great time in Amarillo with all of the family! We were especially excited to introduce Evan to my cousin, Matt, and to meet his sweet girlfriend, Ashley (Ash-a-lee according to Alex).

While we were there, Evan got his first official haircut. He had a trim on the 4th of July, but this time, GiGi was able to give him his first big boy haircut. It only took four adults to hold, cut, and entertain, but he did great!

Evan turned eight months old today! He is growing so quickly...crawling everywhere, pulling up, and starting to cruise! He is a BIG fan of table food and continues to adore Alex.

Is it really August? Really?

Wow! I can't believe that it is August already. In about a week and a half, our household dynamic will be changing drastically. Mommy goes back to work for the first time since Evan was born, Alex starts Kindergarten, and Evan starts to school at Miss Jane's!

It just seems like the past 8 months have passed in a blink. Where does the time go, seriously? Evan will be 8 months old next Tuesday. He is SO busy crawling and pulling up on EVERYTHING! There is no stopping this boy. Also, he now calls everyone in the house, except Cricket, by name. We love it :) He is such a sweet happy baby! A absolute JOY!

Alex is ready to start Kindergarten. We have his backpack and lunch bag ready to go! He told me the other day that I just like to sit at home and do boring stuff...aka he is tired of being stuck indoors with Mommy and his little bro! So, we have some fun activities planned for this week before our summer vacation is officially over.
