Evelyn is now seven. It seems like only yesterday that she decided the timing was right. We'd been trying for two years to have a baby with no luck...imagine our surprise when I found out my uneasy stomach was not from vertigo while roofing the house, but in fact, morning sickness. We were so in love with her and still are. Her appearance was the start of a quick succession of children from which we've never looked back.
|Evelyn's opinion of herself (except she's not six anymore!)|
Evelyn has an endless list of interests, from art to sewing, jewelry making to reading. She is incredibly competitive, especially when it comes to family night kickball, and loves school, computers, camping, swimming and being outside.
|Evelyn could push babies in a swing for hours.|
Of the many things Evelyn is good at, one of the best is her innate mothering instinct. Ever since Claire was born and Evelyn cuddled her and fell asleep with her new baby sister on her lap, she's been an excellent sister. She can make the poutiest baby laugh, loves to play with her sisters and willingly confronts her own fears to protect them.
It's always and adventure with Evelyn!

Happy Seventh, Evelyn!
