Happy 8th Birthday, Makenna Nicole ♥

I do not know where the time goes.
It's like one minute you are breathing in that new baby smell,
and the next minute that baby is . . . an 8 year old!

Miss Makenna Nicole . . .
Mama and Kenners

{Spring 2008}

I can't believe it, but it is true . . .
You are 8 years old today.
And somehow that seems much too much too old.

You have an infectious giggle.
I dare anyone to listen to your giggle, and not giggle in return.
It's impossible.

And life, is one big adventure for you!
You're definitely our risk-taker.


You love your beauty rest ;)
Seriously, we should be calling you Sleeping Beauty.
You would be content to sleep until 10am each and every day.
I think it's pretty sweet.
Confession: I can't bring myself to wake you. 
I make Sissy do it.  Every time.
 I have a thing about waking sleeping children

You have a heart for others, and put yourself right in their shoes.

You are a carefree spirit.
No schedule, or timeframes for you.

 You are self-confident, and march to the beat of your own drum.
I'll admit, we don't always share the same taste in clothes or styles
{you are more trendy, and I tend toward classic},
but I love your bold, fun choices!
Your ensembles are always a surprise.

 You loooove to chat.
If you're awake, you're talkin'.
Who does that sound like? ;)

You are an absolute joy to this family,
and we love you more than words can say.
 Happy 8th Birthday, Sweet Girl!

Happy Birthday to Makenna! She is beautiful both inside and out. (And I totally relate to sleeping until 10am every morning. What a wonderful thing!)

Oh my gosh, I can't wake sleeping kids either! When they were little I did everything I could not to have to wake them up, I would rearrange my whole day just so they could sleep another 10 minutes. I guess I always felt that if they were asleep they needed it, also I knew they would be grumps if woken up. Plus I really do believe sleep begets sleep, it worked for me, they're all great sleepers now.

Happy Birthday to your big 8 year old!!! Ethan will be 8 in one month, such a fun age.

She is so beautiful! I hope she had a great birthday. Love love all the pictures.

So I am a photographer too- so I know it is not just the camera and that you are amazing but curious what camera do you have and what editing program do you use? I love the clean, bold colors of your pictures-- the style I really like too.
