It's 12:30 a.m. and I'm waiting for Piper to come home. I thought these days wouldn't come til the teen years! My aunt and uncle picked her up about 7 to hang out for a bit with Pi's cousin Michaela and they haven't gotten back yet. Since I'm waiting up, I'll share Pi's birthday.
She went from this:
to this practially overnight!
She turned 8 on Monday. I swear I feel like I gave birth to her yesterday. When I tell her that, she just rolls her eyes at me and laughs. She got some small things from hubby and I including a purse, some tank tops, and build a bear accessories. Her great grandparents bought her a new tv and everyone else gave her cash. Between her birthday money, allowance, and saved money from other holidays, she bought herself a Wii. I'm proud of her that she decided on a goal and saved until she reached that goal. If you haven't played one, you should try it at the video game store....its alot of fun!
I bought this bag from Katrina to give to Pi as a birthday gift. She loves it! She stuffed it with her towel and sprinkler things before we headed for the park today. (anyone notice how she's posed some of the amis I've made in the tree in the back? LOL).
Watching her grow is fascinating. Its surreal to see this amazing personality just blossom in front of my eyes. She's gone from a little bundle that only ate, slept, and pooped to this little person who has thoughts, attitude, opinions, and dreams. She talks about what she wants to be when she grows up! To hear her talk about her future as an adult is incredible! Man, I love that kid!
*yawn* I hope she gets home soon. I'm sleepy!
