Happy Birthday, Sweet Girls

Happy Birthday, girlie girl (thank you Grandma Jeanne for the AWESOME birthday accessories). We love you so much. You have learned how to give a kiss. You say "mmmmmm" and then you can actually pucker up. You know how to army crawl to get wherever you want to go. You LOVE sitting by the train that Nana got for your brother when he was one. You push all the buttons and turn the pages to the music. You sleep perfectly through the night. I put you to bed at 7 pm, the same time as Johnny boy, and you usually wake up around 8 or 9 am and drink 7 ounces of milk from your bottle and then you go right back to sleep for 3 more hours. Then you're up for oatmeal for lunch and playtime and you take another nap around 2 o'clock and then you wake up by 4 and have another 7 ounces and then another bottle at 7 pm and then bed. You are like clockwork, girl - so dependable and so mellow and cheerful. You giggle when Johnny boy tries to kiss you. You have started to say "uh-oh" when you drop things and "wow" whenever I say it to you. You can wave hello and goodbye. You are so darling. Everywhere we go, people comment on how beautiful you are. Your lips are so dainty. You are our little doll. We love you so much, cute girl. Happy Birthday. Love, Mom.

Dear Evelyn,
You've got your mother's eyes, and lips and looks. You are so cute on your birthday today. I'm so happy to have a little girl. I love you, Evelyn. Love, Dad.

Cute birthday girl! She really is adorable. Sometimes I wish we could all bring our kids on our reunion trips so we cam meet them all in person. But that would be insane, so it's a good thing we don't!
