Everett: 2.7


I thought I would stop doing his age-updates after age 2 because not much changes after that, but I was so wrong! Everett is the funniest, sweetest kid lately and I feel the need to document it.

His language has exploded recently, and even though I need to translate a lot, I am loving getting more inside his head and seeing so much more of his personality. I literally love just talking to him all day long.

He is definitely a two year old and can be emotional and frustrating sometimes but most days he is so happy and so loving. Multiple times a day, he will throw his arms around my neck, put his cheek to my cheek and say 'love you too mom' or tell me he likes my hair or to 'cuddle me'.

I wanted to write down some of the hilarious things he is doing these days, maybe these are just funny to Ben and I because half of it is his little voice and facial expressions but we think he is pretty adorable.

Everett-isms:

Thinks most owies are 'mosquito bites'

He saw someone pushing a lawn mower for the first time this summer and looked at it, then looked at me and asked 'grass vacumn????'

Wants to clink and do 'cheers' but with anything that we are eating that is the same. If we are both drinking apple juice-Cheers, if we are both eating Oreos, we cheers with our oreos etc.

Says 'Bye bye, love you too' to everyone-grandparents, target employees, also inanimate objects like to his car seat or the library.

Whenever we asked him where he wanted to eat, he was telling us 'ding dong place' and for so long we had no idea what he was talking about.  Then one day we were driving and he started pointing and yelling excitedly 'Ding dong place, ding dong place' it was Taco Bell-we have only eaten there like one time with him so long ago and had no idea he even liked or remembered it.

Everyone always comments that he is so polite and well mannered, because he is, almost too much- he says thank you, please or sorry for EVERYTHING! Even if he is having a full blown screaming tantrum he will be screaming 'No thank you mom!"
- Everett-'Mom, me downstairs?" 'sure Everett' "THANK YOU MOM!' like I just told him he could have a car.
-Me-"hey Ev can you put this in the garbage for me?' Everett-'yes please mom, thank you mom!'
-Me-'hey Everett, can you put away your crayons Everett-'No thank you mom, sorry mom'

He also loves to give praise-if we are playing a game and I do something right, he jumps up, gives me the biggest hug and says 'good job mom' or the other day I told him it was Ben and I's anniversary and that means we have been married for 5 years, he said 'AWESOME JOB MOMDAD"

We were watching general conference and anytime one of the apostles he came on he said 'great grandpa?' or anytime anyone would say Christ he would gasp and say 'Me remember Christ!!" (from saying it in his prayers)

Ran into a wall the other day "Ouch, Sorry Me"

Me-Hey Everett do you want to go the library tomorrow?
Everett-We go now?
Me-No tomorrow
Everett-awwww poor me!

Ben asked him if he could name any shapes off the top of his head-he got confused and started feeling his head

After a short nap one day, I came and got him from his bed and was asking him why he woke up so quick? Did he have a bad dream? Did he want to go back to sleep? Was he too hot? He looked at me and groggily said 'Stop talking mom'

He showed me to sit down in the living room, told me to 'not looking me' 'stay here mom' and then went into the kitchen, kept making sure I wasn't following him, pulled a chair to the counter, got two banana chocolate chip muffins off the plate, took them behind the pantry and took like twenty minutes to eat both of them. Then came back and said 'ok mom, lets go mom' with his hands and face covered in chocolate chips.

Is adamant that we are naming the baby "A"

During a prayer, he thinks he can do anything as long as he keeps his eyes closed, so he will feed himself his food with his eyes closed the whole time.

The other night while putting him to bed- Me-"night night Everett" Everett-"night night sweetheart'

The other day I told him thank you for something and he replied
Everett-'most welcome mom'
Me-'did you just say most welcome?'
Everett-'ya, most welcome mom'
Me-'where did you even learn that?'
Everett-Peppa Pig-Daddy Pig
(Thank you weird little british cartoon for making him so polite haha)

FriYAY




++Today is Ben and I's five year anniversary! 5 years?! That seems like a big one right? We celebrated last night with dinner at the Cheesecake Factory and then went to go see The Martian.  Nothing too fancy but still my favorite kind of date night. Everett came with us to dinner, and although not as romantic, I loved every second of it, who knows, it may be our last date as a family of just 3!

I am so happy to be married to my true best friend and partner. We balance each other out. I stress, he doesn't. He does the bedtime stories, I do the lullabies. I cook, he does the dishes.  I jump to the worst conclusions, he jumps to the best. He drives, I hate it and he downplays holidays while I go crazy overboard. See? MFEO (that's Made For Each Other for everyone over the age of 14) Most days I need to better at realizing how lucky I am. Thanks for always always helping me fold the laundry, for always saying sorry first, for letting our present to each other this year be new bedding (which you could care less about) and for being Everett's and I's rock and best friend! Cheers to 5 years!!

++In other FriYAY news, we hadn't been to see a movie in six months and now have been to two in the last two weeks (hands praise emoji) We saw Everest last week, and although very sad and seeing all those major heights in 3D made my hands sweaty the whole time, I thought it was really intriguing and well done. It made me google everything all about the book and the true story when I got home.  Last night we saw The Martian. I just read the book this week in preparation and I think I read the book and saw the movie too close together because I was analyzing every little change. The book was super scientific and went into insane detail about his math and problem solving and stuff and I was surprised how much I missed that in the movie. I thought Matt Damon did awesome though and two thumbs up for the movie!

++I have been packing my hospital bag the last few days. With Everett, I was so unprepared and when my water broke 3 weeks early I ran around like a headless chicken and brought all the wrong things.  My top recommendations are slippers, your own pillow and a nice fancy body wash to make you feel luxurious after just pushing a baby out. I still want these Gap+Aiden and Anais swaddle blankets so bad but sheeeessh $$$, and this grey sleeper is my favorite thing I have bought for the baby so far-Go Old Navy-it is so soft and cozy and simple and SMALL!

++Did you guys know it is Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend? Always makes me so homesick and hungry.

++So snapchatting is fun! I only have like 10 people on mine and still don't know how to use it 100 percent but I am hopping on that bandwagon hard core. My name is cassie.tremblay if you want to see even more pictures of Everett and things I'm eating for lunch and stuff.

++I know this is pathetic to even think about this stuff but I have had serious internal debates about what color I want my nails to be when I give birth this time. I am deciding between Essie's Ladylike and OPI steady as she rose. (both aptly named actually) and then something bright on my toes, for like motivation or something ;/ !?

Maternity Pictures


This past weekend, I 'hired' my sister to take some maternity pictures of me. I didn't take maternity pictures with Everett and have always regretted it, so this time I wanted to be sure to do it right around 36 weeks, just in case the baby came early and before all the swelling and huge uncomforable-ness could kick in!

 I had a hard time during my first pregnancy, but this pregnancy has been so wonderful and gone by so fast. I used to kind of hate it when people would tell me they loved being pregnant because I felt so crappy the first time but this time-I get it! I love it. I feel beautiful and so aware of my divine purpose and what are bodies are made for. I feel silly posting so many solo glamour shots of myself but I am going to anyways because the canyon is so beautiful this time of year and all these feelings are something I want to remember and document.
