Hello Little One,

What a wild ride it has been these last 8 years, it hardly seems possible it's been so long. Some days it feels like only yesterday that I brought you home, not knowing how in the world I was supposed to suddenly take care of you when I barely knew how to take care of myself. But, we figured it out together. There were days when both of us cried, but they all said it was normal, and now you are this energetic, spunky, beautiful, young lady.

You used to love carrying around a stuffed kangaroo named Roo-Roo everywhere you went, and now he lives at the bottom of your stuffy pile because you're more interested in puzzles, legos, and books. (all wonderful things!) You think the world of your baby sister and need a hug and kiss from her before bed each night, which is pretty much the sweetest thing in the universe. You like to be the bossy mom in every single game you play, which gives me hope that you'll be such a strong independent woman someday, if we can survive your sass & growing attitude until then 😘

Here’s hoping your 8th year is filled with lots of laughs, love, and wonder.

I love you baby girl.
