Baby Bee turned 8 this weekend. She is a little fish, a daydreamer, a voracious reader, a carefree soul. She is always up for whatever might be going on, unless she isn't. But usually she is.
A birthday party was hastily planned with simple invitations and borrowed treats (who knew Maddie would feel so proprietary about birthday flower pots). I never seem to realize that the early May birthday is just around the corner until it's just around the corner. Almost all the girls in her class were able to make it, and it was a dream-come-true party for her: she is as content as she is carefree.
Underwater photos were taken by Grace. It was a sunny, hot day and the water finally warmed up enough to swim without turning purple.
On Sunday, we enjoyed a birthday + Mother's Day breakfast which is always my favorite way to celebrate. We also enjoyed ice cream, because we had to leave the house for a showing in the middle of the day. This is not my favorite way to celebrate, but the ice cream helped tremendously.
Eight. Just like that.
