Hard to imagine that little baby Ev has already successfully completed her first year of life. it can't be easy with such a busy mom and an attention hog for an older sibling (a sister who seriously was crushed that for Halloween i wouldn't make Ev be the "ugly stepsister" to Lil's Cinderella. imagine the future therapy bills if i had gone along with that idea!). Ev doesn't get nearly as much blog time as LK, so this post is all about celebrating the littlest little at our house. Don't let her gerber baby looks, mellow nature, and big blue eyes fool you, this girl has a wild side! she's not only a biter but a pincher. I'm convinced it's the "little sister" genes. Ev's Auntie Tink (my little sister) left my arms sprinkled with childhood battle scars (although most of the time Ev's motivation for attack seems to be that she thinks it's funny!). and you should see her climbing skills (again, totally inherited via Auntie Tink), it's risky to take your eyes off her for a second. even before she could walk, she would strategically place stools and chairs to help her scale just about anything. i can't count the number of occasions i've caught her relieving various "out of reach" drawers of their contents. and given the opportunity she'd climb endlessly up and down the stairs. But for all her adventurous spirit she's also quick to cuddle, loves to gives hugs, and has her mama's passion for music. I can't wait to get to know this little one even more over the coming year.
