Spring Training

When Evy got dressed this morning she pulled her socks and cuffs all the way up to her knees. She looked a little like a shortstop, so we got out her hat and glove and did some soft toss in the living room.
Ready for Spring Training

It was appropriate, since the Pirates have their first spring training game tomorrow. Evelyn spent most of the time working on her pitching. She actually hit the camera with this fastball...
The Pitch

Strike one.

She may be ready to be taken out to the ballgame, but we'll have to hold the peanuts and Cracker Jack. Evy had an allergic reaction to peanut butter about two hours after her spring baseball workout and ended up at the doctor's office.

She feels fine now, but she has to have some blood tests done.
Hey - it really is like baseball...

Purple Day

Evelyn loves to choose her clothes each morning, and she decided today's theme would be her favorite color. Can you guess what it is?
Purple Day!

Her hair clip and underwear are purple, too.

Valentine's Day Treats

Evelyn decorated cookies to celebrate Valentine's Day. She spread pink icing and sprinkles all over the heart-shaped cookies (and the plate and the table).

Then she decorated herself while eating them...

Happy Valentine's Day!

Super Bowl Champions!

The Steelers just won Super Bowl XLIII! Evelyn had to rush right out and buy some championship attire...
Celebrating XLIII

It may be number six for the franchise, but it's only number one for Evy. Hopefully she'll get to see many more (and be able to watch past halftime).
