Evangeline Rebeccaspecial things about Evie- She is a very happy girl. She runs around the house just laughing sometimes. She thinks everything is "so funny!" or "so silly!" She loves to feel like a princess, and doesn't like anyone else being called a princess besides her. She loves to dance, and always turns on her spotlight, and then dances for us in front of the fireplace. She stops a few times to ask if we like her dance, and then continues. She always ends with her "cool trick" of sticking one leg up in the air. She is our pickiest eater, and almost never eats her dinner. She loves candy, and will pretty much do anything to get it. She loves playing with her sisters, and wants to do whatever they are doing. She tells us all several times a day that she loves us.
2012 accomplishments: This year Evie learned to go in the potty. She is about 95% trained, and she loves wearing her big girl undies. She started preschool, and has so much fun with her teacher and friends. She is talking non stop, and we can understand almost everything she says now. She learned to draw, and can tell people that she is 2. She is learning her ABCs. Evie weighs 30 lbs, and is 39" tall.
