We have officially finished celebrating Mason’s 8th birthday, so I feel that I can finally write this post. The majority of Mason’s celebration was last weekend and on her actual birthday. But she just had a party with 5 of her closest friends, so now we can all move on. Not that I don’t love celebrating, but I’m glad to have this party behind us. I could probably do a whole other post just on the drama and craziness of having six 2nd grade girls over, but I’ll just leave it at…. Whew! We made it!
First of all, I can’t believe Mason is 8 now. I don’t have her stats (height, weight) at this point since she goes in for her annual checkup on Tuesday. I do know that she has grown a lot in the past year. Physically, mentally, emotionally… Has it really been 8 years since this?
Somehow we survived, and here is my baby girl today.
Can you tell she loves her birthday? It was even more exciting since we had Nana, Papa and Kristin in town. While the whole weekend was NOT focused on Mason’s birthday, we still made sure to have some fun using the family gathering as the excuse.
Happy Birthday, Mason! Your daddy and I love you so much and have enjoyed watching you grow over the past 8 years. I just realized something, though…. This means we’re halfway to 16. Hubba-wha? I can’t even begin to think of that birthday celebration. So for now, I’m just going to relish in these special moments. And in another 8 years, we’ll look back on this post (and all the other birthday posts) and wonder where the time went…. and be thankful for all the wonderful memories in between.
