birthday girl

I am really late with this post, but better late than never, right? Evelyn turned 2 on October 2nd and we had a birthday party with family to celebrate. Our Evie is so full of energy that she is sometimes hard to keep up with, but she is also the life of the party and so fun to be around...we just love her!

I'm pretty sure Aunt Beth was encouraging this...

At two years old, here are some of Evie's favorite words and phrases..

*don't want it*no help!*color with crayons?*hold you mama? (she wants to be held)*I fix it* read scriptures*I sorry*I love you*read it*Blues Clues*Where's Dallin?*Brush? (wants to brush her teeth)*

She has also been very busy testing her boundaries and has us busy referencing all our parenting books, and asking for lots of advice from her Grandmas.

Happy Birthday Evie, we love you!

I love my little sweetheart. We had a fun conversation with Dallin this morning while we were all getting ready. This is why I have been smiling all day...

Dallin: Oh! I need to make my hair all handsome.

Jason: Why?

Dallin: I'm going to a fancy meeting.

Jason: Oh you are?

Dallin: Yeah. It's a fancy meeting with beautiful womans, like Mom.

He definitely knows how to make me happy (especially when I just woke up and look really bad). And he definitely knows how to pay a compliment..something he picked up from his Dad!
