i just cannot believe it. it really has gone by super fast, and i can’t keep up. my heart is so proud of her, but it hurts all the same. i keep obsessing on catching these moments…they are fleeting. and I think she felt Mama needed a little something special this time because she didn’t complain one bit.

so this Thanksgiving she turns 8. ❤
