Happy Birthday Evan!
Thank you to all who could come to our little party for my honkin one year old. It means a lot to have you celebrate with us so thanks! After Evan was born, and after the first few months, I told myself I was going to space my next baby out more than I did with Rae and Evan. Now, after my baby's first birthday...I'm not sure what to do. He is growing so fast! Last night I was in his room staring at him while he peacefully slept and was amazed at how LARGE he is now. Now I remember why I wanted to be pregnant again when Rae was just 14 months. I'm so happy I did too. Evan has been SO wonderful. I honestly wish I could freeze him right now. His personality is the best. He loves to show off and definitely knows when all eyes are on him. He says uh-oh, but yes, he's made his daddy proud with his first word being 'kaya' (our dog). Speaking of dog, he loves Kaya. He pets her like I would...so gentle. He absolutely worships his big sis. He loves cell phones and uses them correctly by putting them to his shoulder just under his ear and jabbers on and on. He lights up our lives like I never thought possible. He brings a certain joy into our home that is undescribable. He has such a sweet and tender spirit...he has since the day he was born. I love watching him and Raegan interact as brother and sister, and that brings the greatest joy of all. I love my kids and am so grateful I am able to stay home with them and love them unconditionally. Ev...happy birthday 'bubba boy' (as Rae would say)! We love you forever and ever!
