Lucy is 8!

My darling girl is 8 today.  She is the effervescent bubbles of joy and light in our family.  Her sparkling eyes, awesome sense of humour and sweet gentleness makes her a favorite of those who know her.   She is so smart, has an incredible memory and an innate understanding of the world around her.  She is strong and athletic, she is somewhat shy to start but warms up quickly with new friends. She is a hard worker and you can count on her to make great choices and be respectful to everyone.  She adores her big brother but won't hesitate to stand up for herself and push back against his big personality when necessary.  She is already incredible and I am so so so thankful to be her Mama and to stand witness to her growth and maturity.   I treasured her as an infant, I championed her as a toddler, I giggled with her as a small child and I am am in love with getting to know who she is at 8.
