Welcoming... Evan Wyatt Collins
Born on February 15, 2006 at 6:51 p.m.... weighing 7 pounds, 15 ounces, 20 1/2 inches long, with brown hair!
Mom and Evan chillin' in the hospital... Evan was a footling breech baby, and he spent the last few months of Christi's pregnancy jumping up and down in her belly.
Getting dressed to leave the hospital - Evan does NOT like to get dressed or undressed... even now!
Our little Buddha baby!!!
The happy family... Christi, Ben, and Evan...
Yes, Evan's got attitude!
He's also got the most intense eyes/stare of any baby I've ever met. He could hold his head up just hours after being born, and is always looking around.
Ben is the master baby swaddler... he really knows how to work the blanket and keep Evan nice and cozy!
One of the first Evan smiles we were able to capture on camera...
He loves looking at our couch... go figure. I hope he's this excited about kale and yoga!
Evan and Ben having some quality time...
Calm as can be...
Ah yes, we caught a smile... but only in his sleep! Wonder what babies dream about? It must be good, whatever it is!
Ben and Evan headed out for a late night walk...
Look at that adorable face - his cheeks are definitely getting chubbier - he's now 4 1/2 weeks old!
Asleep on the couch... yes, most of our pictures right now are of him sleeping. If he's awake, we're too busy to take pictures!
Doing his touchdown dance!
And just plain sleeping...
Tuckered out after a long walk with Dad...
Yup, I'm cute!
Look at those jowls!
Here are some pictures taken with our webcam the week of April 17 (sorry for the poor quality, but our other camera isn't working, so these will have to do for now).
Isn't he getting chunky? He slept 8 hours straight the night before these were taken, so I guess all that sleep put him in a good mood (you can see that Mommy is smiling, too - all the sleep definitely put me in a good mood!)
