I realize it is well past the fifth of May. Life seems to be getting in the way of blogging…which is clearly the best reason to be behind now isn't it? Here is just a small glimpse into the baby that isn't so much a baby anymore in our family. This is devastating and awesome all at once. And let's not even get started on the fact that my first baby will be five tomorrow. Or that both of my babies, as of this weekend, share a room. What is happening??? I also realize that everyone says, "it goes too fast". But FIVE YEARS of being a mother and still feeling somewhat clueless seems entirely unfair. It's a good thing I have two adorable little chickies to show for it.
Anyway, on with the Evie show!
She's got this cuteness that sucks you in and squeezes your heart so tightly you feel sure it will burst.
She knows what she wants and makes no excuses for her certainty. In fact, it's wise not to try and change her mind.
She can out talk most kids years older than her….not just in words but in volume as well. She will be heard and probably heard first.
She has a sly smile accompanied by a sneaky look in her eyes when she's trying to be convincing. Oddly, this maneuver is filled with a certain innocence that makes you question if she's pulling one over on you or just being sweet.
She sings about anything and everything. And when she sings it's often for her benefit only. She seems shocked if you take notice.
She's not a hugger, but she loves fiercely.
She calls Sleeping Beauty "Sleeping in the Booty" which pretty much makes her entire family's day every time she says it.
She loves Playdoh, not wearing shoes, and sweets.
She already has a crush on the older boy down the street (no matter how much her daddy is opposed to even the slightest mention of it).
She believes Carson is the best friend to have because "everyone loves Carson, cookies, and watermelon".
She may be quick to pick a fight with her big sister, but at the end of the day there is no other person on this planet she would rather be like than Lila.
She expressed a desire for "peanut butter and jelly cake with purple frosting" for her birthday and fully expected us to make it happen.
This is my Evie. It would takes days and millions of words for me to really express everything I adore about her.
Maybe tomorrow I will be on time with a post about Lila!
