Evan: "Why that boy (while pointing at a 50-something guy) has no hair Mommy? "
Me (whispering): "Shhhh Evan, we don't talk about the way people look, that's rude."
Evan: "Mommy, I can't hear you. Why are you talking so softly. I SAID why that boy has no hair?"
Me: Sigh. As I think about all of the embarrasing moments that are soon to come, and remember how I absolutely hate moments such as these and I want to crawl in a hole and never emerge again. "Let's go home Evan, shall we?"

Drew at 16 months:
Weight: 21 lbs (don't know height and head circumference because we haven't been to the doctor in a month or so).
Size Clothes: PJ's and bottoms 12 months, Tops 18 months
Size Diaper: 4
Size Shoe: 4
Favorite Breakfast: Mini-quiches and Bagels with cream cheese
Favorite Lunch: Deli meat and cheese
Favorite Dinner: Quesidillas
Favorite Fruit: Bananas and Blueberries and will tolerate apples, raisins, and strawberries. DISLIKES melon and cantaloupe.
Favorite Veggies: Green beans, sweet potatoes, zucchini, corn, carrots, and peas.
Favorite Snack: Goldfish
Guilty Pleasure: Tater tots
Other Favorite meals: hot dogs, PBJ, anything with Cheese, grilled cheese, lasagna, spaghetti, grilled and breaded chicken, mac n cheese, just to name a few!!!
Bottles: Still takes 3 Eight ounce bottles a day and refuses to switch to a sippy cup.
Favorite Book: sadly, any book any one will take the time to read to him!!! But he really loves Tails and Peek-a-boo Books.
Favorite Songs: again, sadly, any song anyone will sing to him, but preferably one that includes clapping.
Favorite toy or past time: Gymboree class, any truck, playing with the ride on toys in the garage.
Most attached to: Mama and his blankee
Naps: Trying to give up his morning nap but sometimes he sleeps from 10-11, and usually (except for the last few days :( ) he sleeps from 2-4:30 in the afternoon.
Nighttime: Sleeps from 7pm to 7:15am.
Words: Mama, Dada, Hi, Bye, Baba for bottle, and Eh for Evan...but not always does he say these words in the appropriate setting. My guess is he will be a late talker. The poor baby couldn't take a bottle more than an ounce at a time until 8 months and didn't take solids easily until 12 months. His little mouth has always had weakness issues, so I am sure this will manifest in some speech difficulties as well. But that's OK. We will keep working on it!!!
Disposition: Still as happy as can be most of the time!!!
Title #1. TGFP Thank goodness for Photoshop, cause it looks like that will be my BFF for the next few months while Drew gets a little steadier on his feet.
Title #2. It looks worse than it is??? That's what I keep telling myself...as I shrug my shoulders and raise my eyebrows. Cause that's what I keep saying and doing!!!
Poor Drew, his legs are fast than his upper body. He got running this past Saturday and ended up tripping up over his feet on the driveway. Then when his body came crashing down, he tried to catch himself. But those little twig arms couldn't catch that 95 percentile noggin and down it went. To add insult to injury, he has a runny nose. A scabbed up upper lip and a runny nose does not make for a happy boy, or a photo-ready little boy. So again, TGFP!
