Happy Birthday Evey!

Craziness! My sweet baby girl is one year old today!

She is still not walking...while she can cruise like nobody's business - she clearly feels safer dropping to the floor for her "slap and drag" crawl to get through open spaces. She was employing this method at the mall play area over the weekend and had a woman in stitches. The lady said she looked just like a frog hopping around. And she does - when she gets excited there is less dragging and more hopping. :-)

Evey seems to be mechanically inclined. She loves to eat with a fork and is very good at it. She also likes to take apart remotes and put them back together. Definitely taking after her father in this department. Although I am quite good with a fork also. ;-)

Some of her favorite things include books, music, the outdoors, and loving on her family and stuffed animals. So I tried to capture what I could of that during her very last baby book shoot this morning. Here are some of my favorites...

A very short trip outside at her request...she was not wearing the appropriate attire for an extended stay.

We headed back to her room to play - she was in a rather serious mood at that point.

Until her brother got involved. He likes to make goofy faces at her to make her laugh. For example...

Nowadays she likes to try to make the same faces. This was her attempt at copying his silliness...

She thinks Maddox is pretty darn funny. So do I. :-)

She just loves her stuffed animals! They get hugs and kisses, then they are rocked while she hums.

Puckered up to plant a kiss...

We have always acted out the different parts of this book - dancing, splashing, etc. Here they are on the hugging page. Awwww...
