Our sweet Evelyn Jane Lucille, as it goes with every kid at every birthday, it's hard to believe how big you are. I remember so vividly the day you were born. You were my most traumatic labor-coming in the middle of the night and five weeks early, but pink and beautiful and completely healthy. Now that I know your personality, I have no doubt you meant it this way. I'm sure if you could've you would've have given us a big cheesy grin and blurted out "ha-ha".
I love your sense of humor. You are genuinely funny and bring joy into our home. You are always saying or doing something mildly inappropriate, always trying to walk the line and see what will make us laugh and will get you into trouble!
You can also be a fireball when angry. Your newest thing is to put your hands on your hips and shout, "how dare you" when you feel violated. May the Lord soften your heart and give you a desire for righteous justice.
You are our most snuggly. Always giving a hug or a kiss, or when we are caught off guard, a lick on the cheek.
I pray that God will use the sweetness in your heart (and the fire in your belly) for His kingdom work. May your love for Him grow more and more!
"Let the words of my mouth, and the meditations of my heart, be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord my Rock and my Redeemer." Psalm 19:14
