Oh my, how did this ever happen? Our big girl, Emma, is TEN today!! First double digits, which she’s been so looking forward to!
This morning we woke her up super early. Super early because dad leaves for work quite early in the morning and we wanted to surprise her together. So after scrambling looking for candles (I know I have some somewhere), we brought cupcakes, 10 tea-light candles on a tray, and presents at around 6:30 a.m. <– yes, this is super early for us who wakes up at 8 a.m. on a weekday.
But despite being woken up, she perked up quickly and blew her candles at the end of the song. Aaaah, bitter sweet. I love how she looks forward to growing up but as a mom, I just wish she grows up a little bit slower.
So here’s our googly eyes girl who’s still sweet, caring, loves gymnastics and all her good friends. My little travel, craft and foodie buddy and the best big sister Jovie could ever have. She loves to rough it with her daddy and watch hours of documentaries on Netflix.
And oh, the girl who has this “whatever” look when she thinks I’m just full of it. Love her to bits!
Happy birthday, sweet angel!
Card made by me as usual but I can’t claim the cupcakes. Cupcakes were made by a local cake artist: Cake, Love, Crossbones by Holland.
