Devan

Devan has been making great leaps with his talking lately. He is speaking more clear, making more sentences, and using new words all the time now. The last couple times I've taken Chad into work he's been super cute. Like today for example Chad gave me a kiss goodbye and then Tristan, Devan saw this and said, "I want a kiss too, daddy!" It made Chad feel so good. If you have kids who talk a lot, it probably doesn't sound like much, but until recently Devan hasn't been very big on talking, so this was super special.

He has just been a ton of fun to be around lately. It's nice to have someone to talk to during that day, that I know can understand me. It's so cute how I find he talks like Chad and I. For example, I just realized how much I say, mmmhm and uh-huh in response to people. Devan says it almost after everything now. He's so good about saying thank you to. The other day I gave him a sticker for going potty on the toilet and he goes, "A sticker! Thank you mommy, thank you, Thank you for the sticker mommy, oh thank you." It was so funny, he just went on and on. He's also really good at saying , "Bless you," after you sneeze.










Tonight we went to a new restaurant called Ohana's. It was soooo good. It's just across the highway from us and we had been wanting to go ever since it opened. It was kind of pricey, but it's fun to have a treat like that every once in awhile. It is kind of like a Benihana's. You sit at a grill and the chef puts on a show and cooks in front of you. Devan and Tristan were pretty captivated by it. Chad's mom and stepdad are coming down in March and we're hoping to go again then!

Oh wow, I just realized how long it's been since we've seen you guys. We cut Devan's hair about a month ago!

Sheesh! He looks so grown up! What a stud! I was telling Jake that story about Devan when he was playing and was talking about "uncle Jake" and I could tell that he was so thrilled by it! We sure miss you guys!
