Happy Birthday!!!

Happy 8th Birthday
to my sweet girl

I can't believe she is 8 years old already! Where does the time go?!? It seems like only yesterday we were leaving the hospital with our sweet bundle.

I remember thinking that I had been working with kids for years and this would be easy. Then reality hit! GG wouldn't eat for me. They swore up and down she ate like a champ in the nursery. What was I doing wrong? They said take her home and if she continues to not eat for me, call our pediatrician.

Thanks for the vote of confidence!

They wheeled me down to the doors that led to the real world. C had pulled our chariot up to the door. And btw, I was very impressed that he installed the carseat all by himself! Anywho, off we went.

Once we were home, she did a complete turn around - ate like a champ, slept like a champ....everything a baby was supposed to do. Thank goodness!

So many wonderful things he happened in those 8 years - growing and learning, heading off to school, becoming a big sister (which she is awesome at!!). I am so proud of my baby girl. Because, you know she will always be my baby!

I sent her off to school today with brownies in tow
her teacher is gonna love me!
chewy gooey doesn't even begin to describe
those delicious chocolate squares of goodness

And her birthday pin on her shirt

I asked her if it felt any different to be 8 and her response.....

"Not really. I'm just gonna keep on growing!"

Ugh! Let's savour the moment and be happy to celebrate 8!

Happy Birthday little girl!
It's been a great 8 years!
And here's to many more to come
just don't rush them!

Until next time...
