I'm Back!

Where do I begin?

Currently right now we are living in Richmond Hill, Ga. (right outside of Savannah.)

As many of you know we have been here since April 5th. Gus has been working on a Federal Government project up here. And very recent his company opened a new office branch in downtown Savannah.
In this building

We are awaiting to hear back on some possibilities for staying up here but until then we miss our friends and family in Jacksonville but are also enjoying our time here.
As of now, we are planning on moving back to Jacksonville come December 18th.

The boys:

Such a wonderful, loving and understanding husband! 


Ethan is growing like a weed. I can not say it enough--time goes by too fast. He will be 4 in March and  is about 3 1/2 feet tall and weighs about 30-32 pounds. So he is tall and thin and will definitely be passing me up soon.   ;-)
I can not believe my little boy will be 4. We have been praying about what to do with him for school. We still have not decided but I have a feeling I will probably be homeschooling. Which means I have to get busy doing some research on books, lesson plans, etc. for us.
Ethan is still very energetic, always asking lots of questions-- very curious--but still loves to be read to and told stories. He enjoys playing with his brother, running around outside, playing catch, and is into his dinosaurs right now. Every evening (unless we get home late for some reason) Ethan enjoys listening to his daddy read  from the bible and then Gus reads a chapter out of Narnia. Gus recently started reading to Ethan the Chronicles of Narnia. He is now almost through book #2 out of the 7 books. Ethan has learned that not all books have to have pictures and that you can use your imagination.
We still have a long way to go with raising and teaching him in the admonition of the Lord but I am looking forward to the road we have before us.


He recently turned 10 months old and weighs about 15 1/2 pounds. I am not for sure how long he is but he is definitely lengthening out.
He has 4 teeth. Two on the top and two on the bottom. Which is a surprise to me b/c Ethan did not have that many at Tuckers age.
He is doing great with baby food. He enjoys mostly whatever I give him as long as it has banana in it. I am still making his baby food and would encourage other moms to do the same. It is really very easy and you know exactly what your child is eating. Now don't get me wrong-- I do have days I use an organic baby food jar to mix with Tuckers banana. But I make sure I only buy the baby food that has that particular food with water in it.it.
Tucker is crawling, pulling up, and will stand in one place on his own. He will step as long as he is holding onto something. So it won't be long before he is walking and literally into everything.
I am enjoying the time I have with him right now though.
I have tried to start the weaning process, from nursing him. It is not going well. All he wants to do is chew on everything I give him. I have tried putting milk in a bottle, a sippy cup with a soft mouth piece, a soft throw away juice cup with a soft lid and nothing works. So this is going to be harder then I thought--Ethan transitioned so easy that I thought Tucker might do the same--but I was wrong....
So we will continue to try and see what happens.
See--I haven't left Tucker yet except for just a couple hours. I have always been back home in time to feed him again. So my goal was for by the time Gus' Christmas party came around on Dec 12th to be able to leave him with milk for bedtime.
Boy am I in over my head for the next 2 weeks. Or maybe I should say--poor family who is going to watch him that night. He might just scream the entire time!
So pray for him and me....

So that being said, let's move on.. Shall we?

About me:
Well I don't have a picture b/c I am always taking them.. I will work on getting one and updating you!
When I am not chasing my children around the house, cooking, cleaning, doing laundry, making baby food, letting our dog out, packing up or unpacking for some reason, telling one certain child to share, praying for guidance, studying the scripture, cleaning pee-pee off the toilets (b/c I live in a house full of boys), being a wife, taking pictures (my hobby), scrap-booking, etc. because I could go on.... then you will find me blogging on my new Mommy Buzz site.
It was created to help women have a Christian site to visit and get advice from. Covering a wide range of topics my prayers is that it can encourage other women who may not always have answers to their questions. And of course --adding some fun stuff in with it--like decor--cooking--etc.

So basically I have my daily routine with an occasional outing for errands, MOPS, play-dates, the park, church, bible study, etc.
Being a mom and wife doesn't leave you with much time on your hands...But it is a fantastic blessing and privilege that the Lord has given to me.

So that 's all folks...In a nutshell that's what's going on with us right now.

As new things come about with Gus' work I will let you know. Please be in prayer for us that Gods will be done and that the right decisions will be made.

Love You ,
The Evans Family
