Another year past. Crazy talk, craziness, so much crazy. It has gone way too quick. I think also the older they get, the busier they get, and the quicker it feels. That being said…Happy Birthday sweet Payton Pie…I can’t believe you are 8 years old today!!!
This girl. She is one in a million. She is wise beyond her years, she is strong, she is brave, she is caring and sweet. She works so hard on the things she loves, she has drive and passion. I want to be her when I grow up. How many 7 year olds do you know who prioritize 4 hour gymnastics practice 3 times a week, over friends, play dates, riding bikes, swinging at the park, dinner with your family, snuggles on the couch, and so on? Well, I guess I know a lot because they are her teammates, lol…but never in my life would that have been me. At such a young age she has already learned sacrifice and work ethic.
I am just so proud of the sweet girl she is. She is full of laughter and giggles. She loves her brother, her family, and her friends. She loves hard. She is a foodie, she loves any and all food, she is not afraid to try anything. She loves thrills and adventures…she can’t wait to try a “loopty-loop” roller-coaster! As mature as she has to be at times…she is still a kid who loves dolls, pretend play, Barbies, playing house, creating a disco dance studio, coloring, riding bikes, water sprinklers, swimming, the park, Santa, fireworks…I could go on and on.
Payton, I adore every second of watching you grow. I wish it didn’t have to happen so quick, I wish time could slow down a bit, but I hope you know I am loving it all. I love you to the moon and back, times infinity and even more.
Happy Birthday sweet girl. Cheers to another amazing year!
