Evie: Five Years

Where has the time gone? Our first born is FIVE! One whole hand.  Three months late is better than never.  We love you sweet Evie Girl!

Length/Height: 44 inches 
Eats: 3 full meals, 1-2 snacks, 10-15oz of water, 5oz of almond milk
Diapers: Pull Ups at Night
Clothes:  6-7 or 7-8
Shoes: 12W
Teeth: All are accounted for, nothing loose yet
Sleep: 8pm-7:30am + a rare, but welcomed car nap every few months


Evie went to PT this year for poor muscle tone and a weak core. A lot of this was due to (but also contributing to) her constipation history. After 4 months of weekly physical therapy and diligently doing her homework, Evie caught up to her peers.

She's been seeing another specialist for her tummy.  She's not 100% on her medication, but we haven't had any set backs or any more vomiting or constipation. 

Evie can do basic additional and subtraction. She can read and write all her numbers and letters; big and little. She can sound out words and sight read a few dozen words.

With all the potty struggles and some emotional hang ups around being a perfectionist Evie was placed in the young 4s class for this year. However, after a phenomenal summer we just didn't feel right about her class. We talked to her previous teacher and the preschool director and had Evie tested in to the young 5s class. She is second youngest in the class but tested right in the middle of the pack.

Evie had her first dance recital. She did a ballet number. She was GLOWING.  

Evie completed her first year of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. She's mastered the Grace Before Meals, Glory Be, Our Father, and Hail Mary. She also has a few class prayers for school.  

Evie went to Disney World for her 5th birthday and asks weekly when to go back. 

Evie is discovering her passions. She loves loves loves to paint and cook. She likes ballet, but hates tap. She's amazing at basketball but doesn't seem to care too much.  She also seems to have a science mind and really enjoyed the science camps she went to this summer.

Above all, we are most proud of how sweet and loving Evie is. She absolutely adores Maggie and Nathan. She's quick to help them, hug them, advocate for them, and spend time with them. The bond she has with her siblings brings me to tears.
