So, here it is. My blogolution for 2010 - better blogging (and stop making up words like blogolution)! Hold the phones, I know what you're thinking, does this mean no more blogging about Evan??? Uh no, 'cause everybody knows he's the most entertaining member of our household. You gotta' be something to be nicknamed Henry Tooter, or my newest favorite, The Evanator*.
Just to prove it, here's the update:
-Evan loves our animals. Loves to feed them, chase them, and scare the bejeezus out of them. And they love him back. I mean, sure, one now has a heart murmur, one is blind and has the worst feline asthma the vet has ever seen, one's tail shakes anytime he's near, and the dog has nearly managed to eat through a metal crate, but reallllly, they love him!
-He still hates TV. If it's on and he's in the room, you must pretend not to watch and to only be interested in all things Evan. If he catches you watching, it's over. He knows how to turn off the TV and he will. If you try to stop him, 'yer toast. On the upside, this means he's not watching Yo Gabba Gabba (acid trip for the toddler-set), Sponge Bob, or gawd help us, that evil red always-talking-in-the-third-person-making-my-ears-bleed Elmo.
-He sleeps!!!! Sorta'! I hesitate to even write this since any mention of sleeping through the night in the past has come back to bite me in the arse. If, and only if, all the stars are aligned - he's not teething, sick, or didn't eat something he shouldn't have (who knew you shouldn't give babies five-alarm chili?), then sometimes karma blesses us with a good night's sleep.
-It is not advisable to leave your computer within Evan's reach without adult supervision (or with, for that matter). Unless you need all the keys removed from your keyboard. Mommy FAIL.
-King Henry was vastly interested in the snow, until he actually was in it. This was his ruling as he watched Dan scrape the sidewalk:
Now in true dictatorial, Kingly fashion he just points with one hand, puts the other hand on his hip and shouts "snow!" while safely ensconced inside the house.
As always, comments are welcome. Keep it tidy and I'll read them to HRH. He loves mail.
