Three years ago today, at 6:40PM, (all my boys make night appearances) you, Evan John Swanson came into this world.
Even before you were born, I knew you'd be full of energy...you kicked so much!
When you were born, I sobbed.You were beautiful at 8lbs. 8 oz.
Your older brother Maxwell took your arrival well. He was always by your side, making sure you were alright at ALL times.
You have always been a smiley boy. You have this sly smile, a hilarious wink and great laugh.
You are FULL of energy...since the day you were born. You are a handful, the complete opposite of your older brother Max, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
One of my favorite things about you is your love to cuddle with your Mama. Almost every morning, you come sit with me when you get up and rub my arm. You are a cuddly one, and I soak it all up, because I know it will end one day.
When you were 4 months old we moved south, into our first home where you learned to crawl, and then walk.
You have a VERY tender side, you tend to attach yourself to certain people wherever we go and you make sure they are doing well and have a constant eye on them. It's pretty sweet.
You love being outside. Nearly every morning you head out into the backyard to do some exploring, check in with the neighbors on their back porch.
" Hey, hey, what are you doing?"
You even go out and mow if they are out mowing their lawn.
You and your older brother Maxwell are the best of friends. For the most part, you two get along great. You're inseperable. I hope you two remain close all your lives.
You also have a tender side for your brother Liam. When he was a newborn, you really didn't show much interest in him, but now that he is getting older and more mobile I see you love for him beginning to florish and grow as an older brother.
Dirt, cars, water, the outdoors, trains and bikes are some of your favorite things. You talk about dogs all the time but when we actually see one you shy away until you warm up to him and he to you...and then you are dear friends...you LOVED Grandpa and Grandma Swansons dog, Scholar.
You have a killer smile, one to melt anyones heart.
Happy 3rd Birthday Ev. LOVE you so much.
