After Kylee went home Sunday Chris and I surprised Hannah with an early birthday gift.
Do you think she liked it? She hasn't gotten off it since. Don't cha know it goes so much faster than her old bike?
I remember writing last year about Hannah's 7 birthday. 8 is even harder to take in. My baby is no baby anymore. She hardly ever wants to cuddle and actually told me I was embarrassing her in the store over the weekend. Oh the days when I was her best and only friend. What I wouldn't do to have the precious little girl back. But we face new and better adventures as she grows. We share secrets and giggles and I can be there for her in other ways then kissing boo boos and cleaning her scraped knees. I can be there for her as a role model and still be that bestest friend I was to her when she was 4. I can be there to guide her into becoming a wonderfully intelligent woman and I can be there as her mom. As the years go by, that will never change.
More pictures of the weekend are here. And check back in a couple of weeks for Hannah's actual birthday tribute. I don;' know what it will be, but it will be special.
