You are such a charming angelic child and it fills my heart beyond description at just how thankful I am we were blessed with such a wonderful little soul. From day one, I knew you were perfect! The fact that you screamed and howled for two days straight until the nurses finally listened to me and gave you a pacifier and bottle- showed me your determination. Some might have said you were a screaming banshee sent from the depths of the underworld, but not I. I just smiled and beamed with pride.
And today, you are still that determined bossy bit of goods you were two and half years ago. Just yesterday I was thinking to myself, and perhaps voiced aloud, what a God send you were. You were riding your little stick pony around the family room
Your adorable half growl half howl of the word No in public places is c.u.t.e! So cute I can't stand it. Makes me want to rush you out to the van so I can have a private viewing of the drama...such a theatrical little girl! And let me just say- you have the fake nasally cry down cold! The wailing, flailing- so believable! I almost break down in tears myself! You could win an Oscar, I swear!
Grabbing my ipad, drink, phone, carrots or anything else when I'm distracted and saying very clearly "HA! I stole it!" leads me to believe you are a real go-getter. It's that determination we saw at birth still shining through. I know you will go far in life! (or get life, potato-potata) You have already embodied the great American spirit of take what you want and it thrills me. It really does, my little patriot!
This morning I was once again held privy to your excellence. You came running over and informed me that you had pooed your pants. I responded with "Evie, no you didn't!?" (mostly out of frustration and dismay). As I was gathering up a diaper and wipes and called for you to lay down. You held your hand out to me and said "See momo- I did poo!" Oh child, I can not even begin to tell you how thrilled that made me! It seriously made me want to call it a day (at 10:42am) because really? How it could possibly get any better!?
I love you, dearest Evlynn!
****If you can't sense the sarcasm/satire that is dripping off of every word- shame on you. shame shame :)
