She's Gone And Done It!

I specifically remember telling my oldest daughter that she could not get any older! But today she's gone and turned 8 on me!! I just can't believe that eight years ago I was laying in a hospital bed (I"d been there since midnight) trying to give birth to this little munchkin. And after 2o hours and a lot of drama she was born. Oh, the drama still continues on a daily basis and she keeps me on my toes. She's my red-headed child....stubborn, dramatic, smart, serious, and such fun.
We've gone from wearing only skirts and dresses all through our kindergarten year to wearing jeans with holes in the knees from where she falls playing football on the playground. Yes, football!! She sings like an angel and has a flair of the artistic sort. She loves to cuddle with her Dad and watch the latest episode of Mythbusters. She has my sweet tooth and adores chocolate. Em looks after her sisters and is a friend to many.

Em's first day of Kindergarten

Em this winter

My husband said it best when he held her for the first time eight years ago, "I can't believe we made something this perfect."

Me either, Happy Birthday my sweet girl!

Happy birthday to Em! I can only imagine how it feels to have an 8-year old. 8 years of you being a great mum - congratulations to you too, Kara.
