Today we celebrated this beautiful spirit and her 14th trip around the sun.
It was a normal school day, so Eve work up to presents on the table, but had to wait until after school before digging in.
All morning I thought about 14 years ago, at 7am when we were going to the hospital, at 10am when they broke my water, at 10:45 when that beautiful baby girl was on her way. They were nice memories. She is an amazing human being. Alan came over to celebrate with us so we were all together to open presents after school.
This was the year of wigs. This lovely purple one is for an Entrapta cosplay.
Percy Jackson is always welcome too.
We can’t remember what this wig is for. Pure silliness, maybe.
Did someone say silly? She’s wearing a red beret hooked over the purple pony tail.
I love this wild child more than anything!
Guess what was in the big box from Aunt Mandy? A sword! It works well for cutting ribbon, among other things.
This looks safe, right?
How is she so tall?!? I think she must be wearing huge high heels. Yep, that must be it. At least she’s smiling for the camera. :)
So many smiles for mommy today!
Just when we thought it was done, UPS came with a big box from Aunt Rosy!
Eevee of many looks.
We ordered take-out sushi for dinner (Eve’s favorite) and watched Pirates of the Caribbean (Eve’s choice). A good night was had by all.
Eve is a pretty amazing child. Full of laughter, creativity, imagination, and chatter. She makes me laugh, she makes me crazy, and she makes me happy. The other day I came home from school totally exhausted and stressed. The boys were at musical rehearsal so Eve put on a good show and we snuggled and laughed on the couch for awhile. It was awesome. I felt so much better afterwards. Another day I came home and found her outside, in her woodland fairy whatever whatever costume, reading a book. It was such a lovely sight and she even let me take a few birthday photos. She’s so good to me. 💙💙
This amazing child has changed my world and I am thankful every day for her presence in my world.
