Whether Evan wants it or not, he has a constant companion. Ella Grace is everywhere Evan is. She asks for him throughout the day. She says Evan is at "work." I guess she has that confused with where Derek is during the day. :) EG is always very excited when it is time to go get Evan from school. As soon as she sees him on the playground, she says his name, starts to wave, and kind of jumps up and down. I know Evan loves his sister, but he does not share her enthusiasm. :) As soon as we get home, Ella is on Evan heels. He has a little shadow the rest of the night. She giggles with delight if she thinks he is chasing her (he usually is just walking behind her but she thinks it is a game). Sometimes, I think Evan just wants her to leave him alone. The other day he was trying to play on the computer and I guess she was in his way. He had closed the door to the office, and she was trying to open it to join him. When she got the door a little open, he said, in a little high pitched baby voice, "Watch your fingers." It was sweet (even though he was trying to keep her out...ha!). While I was pregnant with Ella Grace, I often prayed that she would have a tender heart towards her brother (especially because of his autism), and you know what, I think she does! Ella Grace loves Evan so much, and I know she will always make a big difference in his life (as he will make in hers).
