Hurry Up Already

I wish this molar would quit making my baby grumpy!

Helpy Helperton

As with everything a 15 month old does it happened in the blink of an eye. I had just finished painting my toenails, screwed the cap on tightly and set the bottle down on the coffee table. I saw Evan go for it and in my mind I actually thought - what's the worst that could happen.

This. This is the worst thing that could happen.

In a flash he ran to the doorway and launched the bottle onto the tile. I will never forget the sound it made. Luckily we got most of it off the tile but we are left with this. We attempted to clean it with carpet cleaner then Hydrogen Peroxide. And I took this picture after we tried those. We will make a trip to Home Depot tomorrow and get some serious chemicals to try and lighten it up. I'm not getting my hopes up though.
After we tried cleaning it tonight Evan got in the spirit and tried to help us. I mean, how can anyone stay mad at this sweet adorable boy?

Rough Day

Evan had his 15 month checkup today. He weighs 23 pounds (50th percentile) and is 31 inches long (45th percentile).

He got two shots today and didn't even cry. That's not to say he was happy about them though.

I saw tonight that he is getting another super evil molar. He has been pretty cranky this week, and I suspect that is why.

Tonight he fell and busted his lip on his portable booster seat. He bled for what seemed like forever. Pretty much as soon as the bleeding stopped and I had him calmed down he ran towards the coffee table and did a face plant directly into it. The lump and bruise on his cheek showed up almost immediately. This can do a lot to damage a mothers sanity in the span of 5 minutes.

After his bath tonight he went to his crib and tried to climb in and cried out "nigh-nigh". I can't really blame him after the day he had.

Evan is 15 months old.
Lately he likes to help me clean. Whether it be the Swiffer or just help me wipe down tables with a dust rag. 

Lately he has an obsession with refrigerator magnets. We bought him a set of the alphabet today and he was already spent a lot of time putting them on, taking them off, putting them on. 

Lately he eats every single green bean you give him. And he is friends with all vegetables for which I am grateful. His greatest love though, would be the mandarin orange. Good gracious he loves them, I think if we gave him an entire can he would gobble them all up. He is still learning to use a fork and he seems to get better every day.

Lately he wants to walk or run everywhere. 

Lately he is in some pain because of a super evil molar that he is getting. I feel so bad and helpless when it bothers him. We do all we can with Orajel and Motrin. Poor little buddy.
Lately his vocabulary is expanding. 
He now says "buh-bye" "la-la"(Lilly) "mama" "dad-dee" "nigh,nigh"(night night) and my personal favorite "shoosh" (shoes).

Lately he makes my heart just melt, he is truly the sweetest little guy I've ever met and is the absolute light of my life.
