52 : 20 (part 2)

When Ewan is all grown up will he be the man of steel, the dark knight, the scarlet speedster, or in brightest day or blackest night will no evil escape his sight? We have no way of knowing at this point, but all we can hope is that he continues to exhibit the exquisite empathy that everyone who knows him well today sees. This one has a big affectionate heart and we will do all we can to protect and nurture that. Bazinga!

Last weekend we took Ewan to his first movie, Monsters University. Taking a 16 month old to the movies may seem crazy, and it probably was, but I really wanted to see this movie.

Ewan loved the video arcade, devoured the popcorn, and enjoyed the movie --- at least the 45 minutes he was awake for. He was very well behaved and may have Despicable Me 2 in his near future!

16 month old Ewan is fun and feisty and full of love. He now prefers the running hug attack. He is full of laughs and enjoys blowing raspberries pretty constantly. Sleep is still about 11 hours straight a night and naps range between 2 and 4 depending on the day. Bumps, scrapes, and bruises are still a reality as evidenced on his forehead in this month's picture. This week we marked 1 year of daycare with cupcakes and a thank you card to Ewan's teachers, we are so lucky that Ewan's school has been such an amazing fit for our family and watching him interact with all the kids is amazing, and everyday as he hugs his pals hello and goodbye I know our arrangement is truly ideal for his growth. Communication increases everyday and we are constantly amazed by how much he understands and how he interacts with us. Ewan's favorite allies remain Barley and Coco who he looks for shouting "baa-baa" and "cocoo"and he has truly begun to embrace the dinner scrap bribery, which he utilizes to secure toe licks!

Kevin is not one to request pictures, so when he told me he wanted to take pictures of Ewan washing Debra similar to the pictures of him washing his mom's Porsche when he was 21 months old I obliged. With Ewan's Debra onesie quickly becoming more and more snug we knew this last weekend was our chance - and with very warm weather, a free morning, and a dusty coat on Debra's recently detailed paint we were all set.
