And just like that, I'm back and Evie's 5!

That's right folks, my firstborn is 5 years old! Time has flown by. I feel like I was just at the hospital watching Bachelor Pad's synchronized swimming episode and savoring every spoonful of beef broth since I was starving. Pitosin induced contractions every 60 seconds for hours sent me into a drugged up, sleepless hot mess but it was all worth it!

Anyway, Ms. Evie Mae is pumped to be the big 5 but is not so pumped that mom and dad are waiting another year to send her to kindergarten. That's right. She's getting redshirted for one more year. More on that in another post. (Insert mom guilt).

Here are some updates on our Evie. 

Height: Tall, like as tall as a 7-8 year old. I was actually just asked tonight if she was going into the 2nd grade. Nope Pre-K!  I'm hoping for an arranged marriage with her buddy, Cole, since he's taller than her and as sweet as can be. 😍

Weight: 43 lbs. She's one string bean!

Favorite Song: X & O's. Maybe not the most kid appropriate but she loves it. 

Activities: Dance and Gymastics. She informed her daddy that she will NOT play hockey. 

Personality: Sweet, persistent and talkative. Always wants to go, go, go. Just ask her Aunt Amy. 👍  If she's comfortable with you she's outgoing and talkative. If she's in a group setting with kids she doesn't know as well she's quiet and reserved. And I'm happy to say she's respectful and has good manners. 

Best buddies: Deacon. They act like siblings. Her cousins are all loved dearly by her. She also enjoys spending time with her friends; especially, Zoey, Brooklynn, Alexa, Aria and Owen. Oh and her little shadow, Nora. 

We were busy ringing in her birthday. She had a birthday party at Flyaways Gymnastics Center (almost a mom fail since it was so last minute) and headed to American Girl for her birthday present and lunch while catching some rides beforehand. We also stopped by her GiGi's for birthday cake. 

Here are some pics!

We are so proud of you and love you so much, Evie! 💕
