Catching Up With Evan - 1 Month

Last week I tried to weasel my way into doing a Wordless-ish Wednesday post.  I don't think I liked it, and I'm over it.  What I did like is that I posted a picture of my newborn son.  It makes me wish that I had started my blog earlier so that I had been able to document his first year so much better than I have.  

I bought a little journal when Evan was a few weeks old that I intended to write in periodically so that I could remember when he did what, and share the awesome emotions and experiences I had being his momma.  I wrote in it one time.  I think he was seven months old or so.  I don't even know where it is.  

A few months ago I was at my nieces fifth birthday party.  Some of my sister-in-laws girlfriends were in attendance with their little ones.  One of the women, whom I'd met a few times before, asked me when Evan started walking.  I stared at her blankly until my sister-in-law answered for me.  Are you kidding me?  Obviously I knew when he started walking, but it had been a month and half and I couldn't answer.  Clearly I need to document these things better.  I also realized the other day that I don't have photos from the first time I fed Evan solid food.  He had pureed carrots when he was four months old.  I took pictures with a cell phone that I don't have anymore.  Oops.  

So I have a little catching up to do.  Evan is almost 13 months old.  My husband loathes it when people label their babies age by the month after they hit a year.  So I keep doing it to annoy him.  

Here are a few photos from when Evan was 1 month old.
