Happy Birthday Eva!


I can't believe my baby is one year old. Actually, one year and 3 days now. Where did the time go? These past couple days being with just the two of us and no daddy, I have come to love her even more than before. I just love to watch her and all the funny things she does. She smiles this insanely adorable smile with her four teeth showing and her nose all crinkled--it makes me want to eat her up every time she does it. Already she is beautiful and funny and smart...I'm sure all of those qualities will only get more pronounced as she gets older. But she really amazes me. I love her with my whole entire heart!
She had a great birthday on Easter Sunday. She wore her adorable new dress from Mammy and looked like a little princess. She got WAY too many presents and wasn't interested in opening them at all. So I helped her. She did like her new books though, and looked through those for a little bit. She just loves books, and that makes me so happy.

Why is it so impossible to get a good picture on important days? She was NOT interested in posing at all. As you can tell. At least I got a picture that demonstrates a real part of her personality. :)

We made her a birthday cake and she LOVED it. She chewed on her number 1 candle too and ate the burnt part of the wick. Gross.

Happy birthday, Eva!

Hey Steph, this is Rachel (Grow) Law from Nauvoo.... Emily's sister. Anyway, I saw that you're in Houston; what are you here for? I live up north in the Spring/Conroe area. Anyway, feel free to check out my blog or send me an email.

Oh, and P.S. congrats on Eva's birthday and on baby number 2! We're trying for baby number 2 now, so I don't think you're crazy for being pregnant again.

Ya know how people always say she just looks like Andrew? Well normally I would agree, but that bottom pose with her straight-face, reminded me exactly of you when you were little. She's absolutely gorgeous, and I about died when I saw how cute her dress is. Hope you're having fun with the fam. I'll see you in a few weeks!

Happy Birthday Eva. We sang to her in nursery that day, even though she wouldn't know the difference. I hope you guys are doing well on your trip. She, like always, looks adorable.

Happy Birthday Eva! My girls still talk about 'that pretty baby'! Steph, we are impatiently awaiting your arrival here in the armpit of America! What do you guys have lined up for housing? I gotta send you some pictures of where we're at! Ca-razy.
