Evy's older sister, Paityn, is a sassy, strong, talkative, smart, persistent, stubborn, sweet, amazing little girl who loves her little sister unconditionally. With tomorrow being Paityn's 5th birthday, I thought it was the perfect time to recognize her for all that she does and all that she is. Paityn has definitely gone through the normal feelings of confusion and jealousy and she doesn't always understand, but her maturity through all of this has really surprised me.
Paityn pushes Evy around just enough to give her that "thick skin" that I'm sure Evy will someday need, but still shows enough affection for Evy to know that she is loved. Although Evy gets plenty of love from everyone around her, there is something special about the relationship with a sister; it's something only Paityn can give her. Though she doesn't always realize it, Paityn teaches Evy to be fearless, determined, strong, silly and beautiful in every way. Evy just wouldn't be the same without her big sister's influence, so today I want to say I love you, Paityn Taylor!! Happy Birthday and thanks for being YOU!!
