Evan's First Concert EVER!

Tonight was Evan's first concert. Mommy was working at The Flaming Lips concert at the Festival Pier in Philadelphia. So I brought him by to visit Mommy at work, and check out his first Rock 'n' Roll concert. We were both a little worried about how he might react. First of all, we're talking way, way, past his bedtime. We knew it would going to be loud with bright flashing lights, and if it startled him, he may want to go home right then and there. But when we got near the stage, he go all excited and started pointing. He had an ablsolute blast. I didn't have my camera at first, but I decided to run back to the dressing room trailers and grab it. It's a good thing I did, because when I got back, they had released tons of balloons and confetti, and Evan was loving it. (See video.) He was so happy, dancing, moving his arms, clapping, having a great time. After about 5 songs, he decided he was more interested in the ball shaped lights they had hanging at the pier. A few minutes after we got back to the backstage area traliers, it started pouring, thunder and lightening, the works. The band wanted to continue, but the rain went on for nearly an hour and it was time for everyone to go home. Genevieve and I grabbed some towels, and made a dash for the car in the pouring rain. He completely zonked out in the car. What a great experience!

Last Days of Summer

As the summer begins to wind down, we're trying to get Evan out as much as possible so he can soak up as much summer as possible. Mommy's first doctor's appointment for the new baby will be September 9th.
Evan's getting to be such a big boy, so fast.

Evan 14 Months Collage

Wow, how time flies. Summer is quickly disappearing, even though it's just now beginning to get hot up in the Northeast, the signs of fall and back to school are everywhere. I even saw a store full of Halloween decorations yesterday. I can't even wrap my mind around the end of October yet, I'm still enjoying summer! My cousins from England are in town for a few weeks, so we all got together yesterday in my old hometown, Milltown, NJ, for a little get together. Evan met his 3 year old cousin Alfie for the first time, and they got along great. Evan got a huge balloon from the movie "Cars" which he has been playing with all day. I'll be posting all the photos from their visit in a few days.
I haven't even had time to post photos yet from our trip to Avalon at the Jersey Shore from July. You can see them HERE on my Avalon 2009 photo gallery. Evan loves the beach. I mean, LOVES IT. He had no fear of the water, okay, maybe a little, but he was very brave going into the ocean while holding daddy's hand. We spent a week down there, and I think he loved every minute of it.
As you know, we announced that we're having another baby. Genevieve is doing great and beginning to show more noticeably now. Our first doctor's appointment will probably be in a few weeks, and we are very much looking forward to the day (probably in September,) when we can find out whether we're having a girl or boy. Rest assured, as long as the baby is happy and healthy, we'll be happy either way...

Evan at 14 (and a half) Months

Taken just a few hours ago just before sunset. We're getting shorter and shorter windows of opportunity for these mini photo shoots with Evan. He can only be entertained for so long before he doesn't want to sit still anymore, tries to knock the background down, and just generally being a kid. The few moments he does give us makes for some great photos.

Evan at 13 Months!

Well Evan is almost 14 1/2 months now, but I'm running a little bit behind on the diaries lately. Here's Evan's 13 months photo taken in early July. Since then, he's gotten a little bigger and a lot more hair. He's getting real chatty, even though he's not really saying that many words, he sure talks a lot in his own little language. I've been busy again in New York, (which is a good thing,) on some commercials and most recently a music video for Jay-Z. I've been editing wedding photos for a wedding I shot in June, and boy, it takes a long time. Summer has flown by and Evan seems to be getting bigger every time I see him.

Naked Tuesday


ha-ha! Fooled you- I'm wearing a diaper. But that's all I'm agreeing to wear today.

Even Elvis spent the day naked.
