Everly Baby

Sweet Little Evs

Some people think younger children in larger families
get left out and overlooked.
I would beg to differ.
I wonder sometimes if it's possible to be loved to death.
One would be hard pressed to find a baby more doted on than you.

You have your own personal fan club.
It's not hard to see why.

I often think that you of the most-heard phrases around here is,
"You are SO cute."
And I think your two oldest brothers say it most of all.

Early in the morning and after naptime
it is often heard,
"Is Everly awake yet?
Can I get Everly up?"

My precious, sweet girl.
My heart.
You are growing up so fast.
Nine months already.
You've now been out longer than you were in.

Today you pulled up for the first time.
I think this is a record for our family.
Two teeth, pulling up,
where has the time gone?
This Mama's heart aches while delighting in your sweetness.

Your uncle has said that by looking at you one can tell you are just nice.
I hadn't thought of it like that before,
but he is right.
You are full of sweetness and light.
You have such a purity about you.
All one has to do is look at you and smile
and your face lights up with genuine joy.
You are so happy.

My heart is full.
How can I be so blessed?
The Father only gives good gifts,
and you,
sweet Evelyn, 
are a delightful treasure.

You are so loved.

"How can it be a large career to tell other people’s children about arithmetic, and a small career to tell one’s own children about the universe? How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone? No; a woman’s function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute. I will pity Mrs. Jones for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness." ~GK Chesterton
