My sweet baby girl turns three today. I blinked and she's gone from my tiny, squishy baby to my sweet and sassy (not to mention toosmartforherowngood) big girl.
She loves books and dress-up and princesses and helping Daddy in the garage and getting dirty. A perfect mix. In the last year she started dance class and talking back. She has an imagination that reaches to the moon and a vocabulary that never ceases to amaze me. I love her bedhead and when she randomly says "I love you mama."
Evalyn is a wonderful big sister. She always has an eye on baby Graham, encourages him, hushes him and comforts him when he's sad. He lights up when she's around and she makes him giggle constantly.
The other day after fighting her to take medication for an ear infection she looked at me and said, "Mama, I no need to take my medicine anymore, the wind blew my ear infection away." She loves to have her toenoshes (combo word for toe nails and nail polish) painted and to play games and watch the tube (you tube) on my phone.
I've said it before and I'll continue to say forever more - I wish I could freeze time and permanently imprint these times on my brain. It goes by too fast.
Happy birthday Sassypants! Mama loves you.
