Audrey Catherine is EIGHT!

It's so bittersweet. I adore the young lady she is becoming, but I miss the days of when she was itty bitty.

Audrey is amazing. She is smart, thoughtful, and responsible. A wonderful big sister. She is eager to learn. She is considerate and sensitive. We adore her sweetness!

She loves to draw and write and create. She doesn't love homework :) I still can't believe it when I see her reading chapter books.

Chris and I joke that she's the third person in our marriage, lol. She doesn't hesitate to snuggle up with us. She waits until I go to bed, then she climbs in with me just so we can have some extra time together (and watch Family Fued!) I'm absolutely dreading the day she doesn't want to snuggle...although knowing her it won't be for awhile :)

Audrey makes friends everywhere she goes...she describes herself as shy, but I don't see it. Whenever I see her at school she's always smiling and chatting away. I envy that about her! She truly thrives off her interactions with others.

As she gets older I'm finding that there are more and more teachable moments...and she truly listens and tries to understand. She asks thoughtful questions. She wants to do what's right. I love her pureness.

Eight years ago we just didn't know how blessed we had become. We are thankful every single day for our sweet Audrey Cate!
