It's true. My baby turned 9 this past weekend? I don't know why each birthday I'm just an emotional mess. I think it's the actual changing of a digit that makes it seem so real. I can't just deny it when that number changes. She seems to be growing overnight. Even her teach said the same. And…we share the same size shoe!? What? Yes. Granted, I have pretty small feet…but still. I'm very proud of my sweet little girl. She's becoming confident and her humor makes me laugh till my sides hurt. I love who she was, is and who she's becoming.
She doesn't ask for much so when I asked her what she wanted for her birthday she thought about it and said, 'Um, peach Greek yogurt, a toy for August and a birthday card from Target since they have so many cute ones.' Yep, I'm going to remember these simply, easy list of wants since I think the the list is going to be changing a bit during her teen years. ;) She did say that she really wanted to go ice skating as a family on her birthday. So we did just that! She had butterflies on the way there…adorable.
As you'll see, she's enjoying her donuts and talking on FaceTime with Grandma & Grandpa who live in Seattle. What more could a girl want on her birthday? ha.
