then and now

These are two of my favorite girls! Khyleigh and Morgan are the daughters of two of my cousins; Kim and Amanda. They are just growing up before our eyes and are so sweet and adorable! I can't believe they are 12 and 13. :) I still look back at our wedding day and can't believe how little they were!


Saturday we celebrated my Aunt and Uncle's 25th wedding anniversary!
Congrats Aunt Lisa and Uncle Dean!

The newest addition to our huge Blake!

just a little famous

On our local news channel there is a photo segment each night. I sent in this picture awhile ago and tonight it showed up! The news people said "you're never to young to be a tiger fan!" Evan looks good on the tv screen!

sticking out...

This picture seriously cracks me up! Almost every single time we put Evan in his car seat, his right ear always sticks out! It is hilarious to see...even if we move his head and tuck that ear in, it always pops back out!

Going to the chapel

Sunday we had a wedding in St. Louis for our friend Kyle and his bride, Melanie. Mike went to college with Kyle, and also when Mike and I lived in St. Louis, Kyle lived with us. Mike ended up sick on Sunday morning, so I went by myself with Evan. Evan met some great friends and attended (and behaved!) at their beautiful wedding. It was so good to see friends who we hadn't seen in a long time! Evan stayed with Grandma and Grandpa Merritt while I went to the reception.

Evan with Kevin and Tami Lisa and Jake were there and we are so excited to see their new little one in less than a month!
Evan at his first wedding! :)

Dancing the night away...
Yes, there was a photo booth! It was hilarious! :)
What a great night...was sad that Mike had to miss it!

It's feedin' time...

Technically you aren't 4 months yet (the 27th is just around the corner), but you are 16 weeks and 1 day old, so tonight we decided to try some rice cereal. It's crazy thinking that just one year and 2 days ago, we had just found out we were 4 weeks pregnant, and now Evan is almost 4 months old! We are so blessed and love how our lives have changed over this past year.

Getting ready for the goods!
Hmmm...not sure what to think yet.
Yep...not liking the different food!
After a few more bites, he totally loved it!
Look at that smile! :)
More actually got into his mouth than I expected! Woohoo! Way to go Evan!
