Evelyn Is Eight!

Where did the time go? On June 5th, this girl turned 8!
How is it that my baby is now 8 years old?
It's hard to believe that this beautiful little girl was once in my belly
and now she is on her way to being a lovely young lady.

~8 Things About Evelyn~
  1. She has lost 8 baby teeth so far.
  2. She loves to play with her Barbie dolls.
  3. She doesn't need me for a lot of things anymore, but she always says she needs me.
  4. She wants me to pierce her ears. I did it for my friends but poking a hole in your own child's ear is something different. Brave girl, she sat patiently still while I fumbled with a needle, tears escaping from her clenched eyes and all she has to show for it is a tiny hole in her ear with no earring. We are taking her to a piercer at the end of the week.
  5. She has a teeny bit of a mean streak and gets sent to her room when we catch her being mean to one of her siblings.
  6. She loves to swing as high as she can and catch the leaves with her feet.
  7. She has an adventurer in her and if we let her, she would explore the woods around us and we probably would not see her until dark.
  8. She delights in meeting other 'Evelyns', even when the majority of them are old ladies.

I made her this '8' shirt.
Remind me not to start a secret embroidery project 2 days before it's due to be given.
I'd never done this before and I stayed up until 3 am to finish it so she could wear it on her birthday.


I think I did pretty good.

Happy Birthday my dear Evelyn,
May you celebrate many many more!
We love you!

If you can not be kind, at least have the decency to be vague. ....................................................
