In the everyday, there are a few things that make Evy SO HAPPY. You already know some of the big ones — like kayaking, swimming, scootering, burly rides, ice skating …. pretty much all physical activities involving the outdoors. But there are more….
Here a few phone photos of some of the little moments, that are daily, that shows what brings the Evster joy. She’s almost two.and.a.half.
MOVING UP TO THE PRESCHOOL ROOM
GOING TO THE BEACH
ACTUALLY ANYTHING INVOLVING WATER
(our first visit to our local outdoor water park this summer was a HUGE success!)
PLAYING HIDE AND GO SEEK with ethan
(and picking how she gets her hair done everyday — pony vs two pony vs braid)
WAGON-ing TO THE PARK (and the swings ; high)
PUTTING THE BABY DOLLS TO SLEEP
(matt and I lament how we can never never never keep towels folded. One minute later, they’re all out all over the house. and yes. there is a baby doll (or something similar) under each of those that we get to trip over the rest of the day…)
Actually anything imaginative-play with her BABY DOLLS
(She sings everywhere. All the time. Matt says he’d guess she sings upwards to an hour a day.)
The Ev LOVES to read books. And by read, I of course mean listen to us read her the books – and she memorizes it, and then recalls it back to us. Is there anything better in life than having this happen?? One night, I said we could read every book in her bin by the chair. She stacked up all 25 of them and looked at me with a huge smile. It took me 40 minutes to get through them all, but we read them all. She LOVED it.
What books does she loves to read you ask? Well — here are a few from that stack that are her favorite!)
So there’s a little sneak peak of this girl growing up…..
