I only have a few minutes and I’ve been up since 3:30am (Evan is still on Taiwan time), so this post will be brief- not well thought out and well written like Nathan’s 😉
At about 6am Evan crawled out of the Ergo carrier and demonstrated what it means to be a boy. A very active, energetic, charming boy. I am overjoyed and relieved that he is feeling more comfortable with us and has stopped crying, but I am very nervous I won’t be able to keep up with him or keep him safe. He was into every cupboard, tried to stick his fingers in the outlets, almost pulled the camera and then the computer off the counter, fell down a hundred times barely missing all the sharp corners in the living room, showed me how he can jump off of things, ran away from me when I wanted to change his stinky diaper, threw toys at my face in an attempt to play catch with me, and made drumsticks out of the tinker toys and drummed every surface he could find. I guess now would be a good time to baby-proof the house.
But he kept coming back to me for hugs, kisses, and tickles, which restored my patience and energy. He is the cutest little thing with a HUGE appetite. We are going to have so much fun with him. When I told Ava about our morning, she said, “He’s going to be a great son isn’t he, Mom.”
