1. effusively and almost uninhibitedly enthusiastic; lavishly abundant: an exuberant welcome for the hero.
2. abounding in vitality; extremely joyful and vigorous.
3. extremely good; overflowing; plentiful

I think that pretty much sums up Evelyn. Exuberant. When she wakes up in the morning and is having conversations with the animals on her blanky. When she catches a glimpse of her brother and sister and goes wild with excitement. When she sees a nice warm bottle coming her way and loudly smacks her lips and grins. When her daddy puts her on his shoulders and she squeals with delight as he tickles her tummy.

She makes our lives exuberant. She makes our lives extremely good, overflowing, plentiful.

What a cutie! You can see the happy gleam in her eyes! Gone are the days of a colicky baby:o)

Thanks Rebecca! Yes, the colic is gone although at times I was SURE it was never going to end :). In perspective 5 months is such a short period of time but when you're in it you can't see the light at the end of the tunnel! All in all it was a very humbling experience and gives me empathy and great admiration for those mums who have kids with health issues or disabilities.

Kara, she's darling. It's wonderful to hear how much joy she brings you all - she's making up for the colic!
