Isn't She Lovely?

Isn't She Lovely by Stevie Wonder has been "Evie's song" since she was a wrinkled (but lovely) little newborn.
It was inscribed on her birth announcement.
It's her anthem.
And lovely she is.

Today is her fourth birthday.
I love four on her.
Her personality is blossoming.
She's becoming a little young lady.
She loves all things girly and feminine;
she also loves a good romp on the living room floor with her brothers,
taking time out for a quick swipe of lip gloss or a moment to tame her hair.

Our first photo together.

She adores dresses that twirl.
If a dress doesn't twirl it gets a despondent stare and pout.
As if to say,
Who would ever make a dress that didn't have adequate twirling capabilities?

Other things that are "all Evie":
french fries, the Eiffel tower, "cardigans", baby dolls, dress up,
baking, watching Giada, nail polish, going somewhere...anywhere,
making up songs about God, books, watching mama put on makeup,
kitchen dance parties, snuggles, sleepwalking, pink, tea parties

Isn't she lovely
Isn't she wonderful
Isn't she precious
Less than one minute old
I never thought through love we'd be
Making one as lovely as she
But isn't she lovely made from love

Isn't she pretty
Truly the angel's best
Boy, I'm so happy
We have been heaven blessed
I can't believe what God has done
Through us he's given life to one
But isn't she lovely made from love

-Isn't She Lovely, Stevie Wonder
