This is what 8 years old looks like.

I was working on my computer yesterday and I heard, "Mom, I am ready." I looked up and this is what I saw. An angel in front of me who loves bugs, fashion and barbies. I had to take a picture of what 8 years old looks like at our house. How long has it been since I have caught a butterfly and kept it around my neck until I could show my best friend how beautiful it was? How long has it been since I have picked out all of my favorite clothes and worn them at the same time, even though they might not really go together? How long has it been since I have sat on the floor with my friends Beth and Suzanne and played barbie's for hours, choosing who was going to be married to the prince or who would be in charge of the wedding?
Childhood passes by so quickly. I love what 8 years old looks like, and I love what is in my daughter's heart. She is a creative and spiritual soul who giggles and talks from the moment she wakes until the moment she slumbers. Thank you God for Sophie.
