Today, my baby turns EIGHT!! Let me just say, life is never dull with this little love of ours, that's for sure....

A is a firecracker. She has a smile that lights up a room, a salty sense of humour and lots of quirks. Among her diverse interests are pickles, bare feet and shipoos. 

She will tell you as she sees it! She knows what she wants, is wise beyond her years and has a strong sense of principles and morals. This year hasn't been the easiest for A. She was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease last August and she had a really tough time for a few months. Thankfully, she is better now. She is so strong and determined. 

A has a strong sense of family and a big, soft heart. She calls family often, can be found on House Party with my parents and is loyal to those she loves. She is so social and loves when we have people over (a very few and far between occurrence these days). She is very affected when those around her are hurting. She is always leaving little love notes and writing cards for me. Side note, she isn't pleased if perchance she finds I haven't been taking good enough care of them.


A is always doing stuff... she is obsessed with her loom, always flipping, stretching or bending in different directions, making a plan for if a friend comes over or having a virtual sleepover. She loves occasions and events, dressing up, creating outfits and making things. She is always chatting and has an answer for all of life's questions.... though if you meet her, you'd think she is super shy. Wait until she warms up though....


Smarts come very easily to A especially math but she will complain for an hour before getting down to business and then complete it in a hot ten minutes. She loves a  check list-- either making one of her own or checking off items from a list I made for her. 

And as is the norm for her birthday, here's a list of questions I ask them on each birthday. It has become one of their favourite birthday traditions and they carefully think before answering each question, knowing that it will be on the blog ;-)

This will be a different birthday for A... She started planning her birthday way before COVID even was a thought for us but those plans are awash now. She is now supposed to have a few socially distant, short visits outdoors on the day but now it's supposed to rain.... she has been okay with changing plans in this weird year knowing that things aren't what they usually are.

Happy Birthday, sweet girl. You are this big, beautiful, bright light in a  very little body. Can't wait to see what the future has in store for you. 


  1. Happy birthday! Always love reading the answers to your questions here.

  2. Hope your daughter had a great birthday.


Hearing from you makes me so happy!!
