Evelyn's first birthday

EvelynFebruary 4, 2011
one year old!

One year ago today...one YEAR??? ago today...we welcomed little miss Evelyn into our hearts.  She is the sunshine for our wintery days; everyone competes for her favor.  Her royal highness can get a ride at any time to anywhere she wishes. Except for the occasional fussy night from teething, she is an exceptionally happy little girlie- unless you tell her "No!"  Even if you merely suggest "No!" her smile fades and is replaced by consternation and even tears. Apparently, she is the sensitive type.

We tried to have Evie sit alone for photos, 
but she kept trying to fall out of the chair. 

Thankfully, Madelyn agreed to hold the very, very wiggly baby.

So much silliness! 
(Sorry- I couldn't seem to get the right white balance today...)

 As you can see, we gave up on sitting all together.

 I think that she wanted to show off her amazing walking skills.


  1. Wow!! I can't believe its been a year already! Happy Birthday!

  2. Happy Birthday to a very happy little girl
