8 is Great!

Eight is my favorite number.  It has been since I was 7 and a half...I thought turning 8 would be the best thing ever!  And now my sweet Elyse is 8 years old.  This also marks 8 years of motherhood.  That feels good too, going from the "I have no idea what I'm doing" feeling every moment to the "I have no idea what I'm doing" only a few times a day!  

About my girl: She's super smart, kind, and ENTHUSIASTIC.  She has the BEST giggle and isn't afraid to use it.  She loves books and will read for hours on end.  She has intense loyalty to her few friends.  She loves drama class and Girl Scouts.  

Several times a day Elyse says, "I can't wait for..." always excited about upcoming plans (but then show intense disappointment when plans change!)  She's always thinking, always observing, and coming up with inventions and questions.  She has her own sense of quirky style that I find adorable.  

We adore this sweet girl and thank God that she is ours!
