I am so proud of her. Everything about her makes me proud. We are raising such a great girl. 2 weeks ago we had her birthday parties (one for her school friends and one for our family and friends). She received some gift cards from Toys R Us. She and I went on a special shopping trip where she proceeded to buy herself a new Monster High doll, presents for her brother and sister and a child in need. I did have to add $10 to help her out but the fact that she would use her own money to do that is so telling of her character.
Last year I shared her birth story here and I shared pictures here from the last 7 years of her life.
I want to add to that and share pictures from the last year. She is truly turning into a young lady, my little girl is quickly slipping away.
Another year has quickly passed us by (and apparently so has the time, where I started to write this post and had the intention of finishing it on her birthday time has passed and it's the day after) my girl is growing up. I really truly am blessed to be her mother. I love you so much and Happy 8th Birthday Monkey.
