Today Marks 7 Months of Evelyn. Evelyn you are small but fierce. You have such strong will. You love to test the limits around you everyday. You love our daily routine but are so easy going if we stay out late. To anyone that knows you are the “best baby” and the “easiest baby” and “so engaging” and “always smiling”. You captivate a room with giggles. Momma loves when you grab her face with big open mouth kisses, how you snuggly you are in bed when you wake up first thing in the morning. You love to sit in the shower and sing with me.

We love singing the “Ayyyyyyhhhh Auuuugghhh Aiiiiighhhh” beginning vocals from Ariel’s The Little Mermaid. You love to match me on the vowels and put your hand up and out to the side to sing. You love your puppies, especially crawling to them. What started as 4 connecting crawls at the beginning of the 6 month mark has expanded into a very fast all leg out and moving crawl across the room. You love it when daddy grab tickles you and sings you his made up songs about the dogs and a farm.
