I love this outfit for when it starts getting cold outside.I have no words that can describe how much I love this dress! I can't wait to put her in it!I made this for her at a bead party. It has pink,purple & yellow beads & then the little flower beads I love it!
I have a few other dresses that will find there way on here sooner or later!
I have really loved getting to know her before she arrives with her little kicks, I can't wait to meet her in May!

I'll tell you the story!
We have four other friends that are having babies. One is having a baby in April & the other three, & myself are all due in May, within days of each other! My friend due in April was the only one I thought, for 100% sure,was having a girl & it turns out to be completely opposite she is having a boy & the rest of us are having girls...Oh my! With all of us having girls I have heard almost every girl name in the world over the past few weeks just in simple conversation.
Now I'm going to skip some of the story & go back 10 years... I have LOVED the name Evelyn for 10 years. It was the lead character name in the movie Pearl Harbor,that's where I first heard it & fell in love. Robbie has always told me he didn't like it. He would say "it sounds old" I would ask him if he thought those "old" people were ever babies & kids before? He would just laugh at me. Well we went through list after list we even settled on three other names but they didn't feel right. So through out the weeks I would ALWAYS throw out Evelyn & his mind slowly changed & he began to like it.
Back to ten years later!...
One night I was talking to some of our good friends, who are also having a girl in May, & they told me they went through some girl lists of names & settled on Evelyn... My heart literally broke into pieces. I immediately took Evelyn off my list of names in respect of those friends but I was sad for days. I tried to fit it in as a middle name but couldn't find the right "flow"
On New Years Eve I asked them where they heard the name Evelyn & they told me on the computer on a list of girl names. I then told them my love for the name for 10 years & they both gave me their blessing to use the name as well. They had no idea I was in love with the name & for how long I was in love with it. I want to thank the Christensen's for their "blessing" to use the names as well & for not getting mad at us or territorial over the name.
Since I have talked with the Christensen's I have prayed about the name & even tried to change the name. I keep getting, with that amazing overwhelming feeling, that Evelyn should be her name.
So we are going to name her Evelynn Grace.
The double "N" on the end will be from family names on both my dad (Lynn) & moms (Wynn) side of the family.
We have such great friends that truly taught me a lesson that night. More then they know. Thank you guys!

Christmas morning we were up at 6:30 A.M. ( NOT my idea) we spent the morning with uncle Kenny & Beth. We saw what Santa brought Trent & opened some gifts.Dad bringing Trent out to see if Santa came.Santa did come! He brought Trent the case of match box cars & some books!
I love this excited face! ( sorry it's a little blurry)
Uncle Kenny bought Trent an Elmo who interacts with you. Trent LOVES it. He carries Elmo around with him & treats him so nice! ( I hope he is that nice to his baby sister!)
Next we went over to grandmas & bumps for breakfast.Bump helping unwrap a gift.Playing puzzles with uncle Jas.
After spending a great morning with the Taylor's full of great company & yummy food we headed over to my Dad & Valerie's house.
Aunt Aly helping him with his Lego's made just for 1 1/2 year old. It is a truck so of course he loves it!My dad & Val bought Trent a Radio Flyer tricycle this picture he is opening it. It was so cute to watch his face!Grandpa Steve (my dad) showing Trent how to use his tricycle. He cant ride it by himself but he LOVES being pushed around on it!Trent did REALLY well for waking up at 6:30. He didn't cry or complain all day. When we finally got him home in the late afternoon he was ready for a nap (we all were) I snuck in & took a picture of him sleeping. He looks so sweet!
After his nap enjoying a book!
