Happy Birthday Baby Girl

A year ago today, Dave and I became godparents to the sweetest little girl!

Evelyn is happy and cheery pretty much all of the time and it is next to impossible to not feel the same way when you are with her. She is definitely a little chatter box and when we spent last weekend with her and her brother I spent most of the weekend listening to her babble, helping her walk (a brand new skill she has) and clapping with her and she currently loves clapping.

Happy First Birthday Evelyn!!
