Evelyn's Birthday

Happy Birthday Evelyn Revay

Well, we did it.  We made it through the first year as parents.  Whew! What an adventure it has been.  I feel like it's gone by so fast yet I feel like she has been here forever.  I can't even believe it's been a year already.  This day last year I was laying in a hospital bed completely unaware of how much work a baby really is yet how it came so naturally that it didn't always seem like work.  It's just a normal part of the day.

We took off work yesterday and headed to the mall to make her first Build-A-Bear and find a good pair of walking shoes.  Side note: a redheaded baby gets LOTS of attention in public.  There hasn't been one time that I have gone out in public and someone hasn't complimented her hair.  A lady pulled up and rolled down her window in Wal*Mart parking lot last week to tell me how pretty Evy's hair was and how she always wanted a redheaded baby.  Then once we got in the store I was stopped two more times with people telling me how they also wanted a redhead and then they continued to tell me about their Italian and Cherokee heritage so they don't think they will ever have one.  It's nothing for them to also pull out their phones to show me if they do have redheaded kids or grandkids.  One lady even yelled at me as she was leaving Hobby Lobby "They're so faithful!!"  I kid you not, this happens all the time.  Obviously she is the prettiest baby in the land in my eyes but that red hair sure makes her a topic of conversation.

I really did have the best day yesterday.  It was perfect!  Here's a little look into Evelyn's first birthday.

Backyard photo shoot

We have her big birthday party on Saturday.  I hope it's a good turnout and I hope she enjoys it.  I know she won't remember a second of it but it's important to me for her to have it.  

Happy fourth to everyone! Be safe.  Be responsible.
