Evie is 5.5
You are 5.5! I just cannot believe how big you are getting. You are filled with joy and laughter. Life is more fun with you around! You are definitely my little sidekick keeping me company and going with me on girls trips. It has been a wonderful 5.5 years having you home with me.
You like to sleep late - most days you wake up around 8 or 8:30. That is going to change soon but it has been nice. You still drink your chocolate milk and watch a tv show when you wake up. Three Raffi's keep you company on the couch and in your bed. You love animals, still have a BIG heart for the homeless and do not miss anything. You are quite observant and have an incredible memory. You swim like a fish, maneuver the monkey bars just like a monkey and are the world's best mommy to your cadre of babies.
You are about to start kindergarten in just a few weeks. It is bittersweet for me. I am so excited for you to begin your school career but feeling apprehensive about how much I am going to miss you. It will be a long wait for me until 4:15! Henry is going to have a difficult time too. He starts asking if we can pick you up before you have been gone two hours. It's going to be a BIG adjustment for us all! You are ready though and will take kindergarten by storm. We picked out your first day of school dress and it is smocked! I love it and you do too but I know this will be the last first day of school that you wear a smocked dress.
Evie you are the perfect daughter for our family! We love you so much and love watching you grow up. You are the best of me and Daddy. We love seeing the world through your eyes.
