On This Day, 8 Years Ago


It's just like my sweetest little sweetie to think of her momma on her birthday.



One of the many things about Zoe that tickles me? She gets confused who is the "to" and who is the "from" when she writes letters.

.


But I think she's getting it.....




I love my Zoe SO much. There is something about the baby!!





And baby her I do! I make no apologies.

.


I do feel a little bad when I think of my Wesley, when he was 8. How I expected so much of him. I expected him to be a little man.

.


For that.... I probably owe apologies.

.


But to the world? For babyin' my baby? Never.

.


And I expect her to crawl in my lap and cuddle no matter how old she gets.

.


So Zoe asked for scrambled eggs and toast for her Birthday Breakfast. She got it.

.


She wants her daddy and I to come have lunch with her at school. She'll get that.

.


She wants to have the same Birthday Dinner Wesley had for his birthday. We'll do.


(homemade Chinese food)

.


And I am SO excited for her to open her presents, which will only mean lots more creating and inventing and scissors and paper and glue and mess making. She'll love it.

.


Happy Birthday My Zoe!!!!

Update: School Lunch Picture ....

Gary and I almost didn't make it due to the most awesome parade I've ever been to... that I had my camera for.... but left the card in my computer (!?!?!?!)....

So I had to use my phone to take this picture.
