Nephews and Nieces &everything nice :)

I really really miss my nieces and nephews right now. So I decided to do a blog post on each one, since they are so darn cute, cool and special like that. From oldest to youngest, my first nephew is Evan. Evan will be 3 in July. He is an amazing little boy for so many reasons. I think the most impressive thing about him is how dang smart he is! Because of this he says the most hilarious things for someone so young! He is SO funny...In fact my sister is constantly writing Evanisms and stories on her blog... I get a kick out of them. Here are some favorites.

My older sister had Evan with her while she was changing at the gym. Evan wanting to help of course, picks up her bra and goes "Here mama shirt for your boobs!"

Sitting on his daddy's lap, Evan started playing with a mole on his Dad's face. When his Dad asked him what that was he was playing with, Evan answered confidently, "A Nipple!"

When the sun is too bright he covers his eyes and screams "I'm melting" (His mother has no idea where he got this from!)

One day they had been out playing in the mud. Evan got all dirty so they took off Evan's clothes to clean all the dirt off of him. They then sat him on the counter and he picked up the phone and said "hello ... I'm Evan. I'm naked!"

Evan also like to call me... "Uncle Alycia." :) haha

One time my sister and Evan were being pirates and he asked for something. She said, "Evan what do you say??" He replied in his best pirate voice and hook in the air ... "aargh ... please" ;-)
I could go ON and ON and ON about how adorable and funny this kid is. He is getting so big now, it is crazy how fast they grow! Evan was born with something called Spinal Muscular Atrophy type 2 also known as (SMA) This has put him in a wheel chair among other complications he has to deal with. It has been so impressive to see how my sister and her family have dealt with this in their lives, and to see how strong Evan is. This kid has so much spirit and passion for life already at such a young age, and he hasn't let having SMA stop him from enjoying anything. Because of this I know Evan will lead an amazing life, and be such an inspiration (as he already is) to so many people. He is handsome (like not even kidding, this kid is adorable) funny, smart... what more could you ask for? I love him so much and can't wait to see him in July! I LOVE YOU EVAN, even if you still think I am "Uncle Alycia." *KISS*

(this is Evan saying CHEESE for the picture! haha)
