She's 8

This little girl has been waiting all year for this day.
She couldn't wait. One of the last in her class to make it.

She'd been asking me all year when I would make her dress, when would she get to pick it out.
By the end of summer I told her it was time. She knew what she wanted. We planned it. I made it. Down to the handmade flowers and headband.

She was a little nervous. She gets very shy when attention is all on her. At the same time very concerned with who would be there for her.

She came into this world all wild and crazy and she went into baptism as sweet as could be. I can't believe my baby girl is 8. I can't believe she is mine.

I also can't believe how big her sister looks next to her....how has all of this happened to my baby girls?????
