I am so tired right now but don’t want to let my letters to you suffer because of it. In fact, this is the time I know I will regret most if I don’t document, or share my thoughts with you. The reason I am tired and behind on life is obvious–your sweet baby brother’s arrival. When we first brought Theo home you told him to come in your room and play with you; since then you’ve realized he can’t quite do that yet. You’ve fallen into your role as big sister really well; every time Theo (or YO, as you pronounce it), cries, you rush to his crib and make sure he’s ok. You love holding him and giving him kisses. You are pretty much an awesome big sister.
One thing I have to comment on about you right now is your hair–it is wild. But I love it! I think it fits you perfectly. My friend Rebecca has tamed it by putting it in the cutest braids or ponytails, but Mommy is not that talented. The best I can do is put it into a singly ponytail, which you usually pull out. We haven’t cut it yet, and probably won’t for awhile, we’ll just have to see where it takes itself…
For this month’s pictures, I wanted to try and do something a little different. Instead of an outdoorsy session with flowers and grasses, I wanted to do something a little more urban. So we headed in the direction of downtown Raleigh, right near NC State, and roamed the streets for a bit. I quickly realized that with cars zooming by us on Hillsborough Street that I could not really take pictures of you without having a panic attack that you would dart out in the road. But I did manage to get a few shots of you and your crazy lady hair.
I love you, Ev! I’m so proud of you.
