I don't know how on earth you are 8 when it seems it was just a month or two ago I was decorating the house with peacock feathers for your 7th Birthday! Looking through pictures from just last Summer I noticed how much you have changed and how much more of a young lady you have become. You have excelled in just about everything you do, I know I sometimes take for granted how easy it is to parent you with schoolwork. I don't even have to worry about helping you or going over things because you just get it on your own. You still love to read and have been one of the top readers in your entire school this year as well as reached reading 1 million words!!! You definitely got mommy and daddy's stubborn gene and you love to argue with EVERYTHING!!! I remind myself how strong your personality is and how much that is going to help you out in your future and know you will be someone who stands up for what they believe in. You love your little sister so much and even though you might not see it now she is definitely your best friend. You two are constantly playing together with Legos and daddy's old matchbox cars. Your imaginations go on forever when you are together and she loves you so much!
It was just 8 years ago today daddy and I fell instantly in love with your little face and we could not be more proud of the young lady you are becoming! We love you so much.
Happy 8th Birthday
