Oh sweet girl if I could freeze time right now I would.
You are perfect.  You are happy and sweet and cuddly and hilarious.  We are obsessed with you and every noise you make and shake of your head do.
You are the perfect shape and size and you melt right in to my arms.  Sometimes I get jealous when other people have you now.  I want to be with you all of the time.  I call you Evie, I never thought that would be the name that stuck but around the house you are Evie.  Sometimes we call you Evaleigh, EJ, Ev, Evie Joy, or when you are in trouble Evaleigh Joy.  You love broccoli and tonight you enjoyed the core of a pear in your chair for an hour. A WHOLE HOUR.  You sat still and devoured that pear and "Emmmmm'd" with each bite.  I like it when you enjoy healthy food.  Especially after a week of your Grammy and Auntie Makayla spoiling you rotten with whipped cream and cinnamon roll bread pudding custard.  I thought I would be lucky if I ever got you to eat a vegetable or fruit again.
After your pear eating frenzy we got in a hot bath together and you splashed and tried to stick your fingers down the drain for a long time.  We are going to love having a bath in our new house every night.

You are the light of my life.  Your personality is blooming and I can't get enough of you.  
I love seeing your face spring up after a nap full of smiles.  
I love that you think its hilarious when I bite your toes.  
I love that you shake your head 'no' when you eat something delicious.  
I love that you are a little shy when you meet new people and bury your head in to my shoulder.  
On the flip side sometimes you just take to a stranger and reach out for them.  My mother heart skips a beat when you do this.

You grew longer while we were in Colorado.
I love you so much.

Oh, yes, this is the very best age. Our Ej is almost ten months and I am more in love with her than ever. She makes me laugh out loud every day. The hardest moment of the day is when I have to leave her with her Nana and she crawls towards the door after me. Sometimes I cry in the car on the way to work because I miss her, but also because I'm consumed with love for her.

I'm so excited for every new step on our journey together.
