If I had to tell you a few things about Heidi, I would tell you that I think she has one of the most caring natures I have ever come across and she's only 8.
I would tell you that both Luke and I think she will be a nurse or a teacher of some sort when she's older.
I would tell you that Heidi wears her emotions on her face. When she is truly upset, it can break your heart with just one look.
I would tell you that her favourite colour is blue.
I would tell you that one of her favourite foods is mac and cheese.
I would tell you that Heidi collects rocks.
I would tell you that when I am having a bad day or upset, I always hide it from my girls, but once Heidi followed me and just hugged me and didn't say a thing, just sat there and hugged me, and I will never forget the strength in her eyes when she looked at me.
I would tell you that she is a mad monster high fan.
The photo above was taken today at Heidi's birthday party that we clecrated down at the local park.
The kids all ate, played, ate some more and all went home happy and high on sugar. The weather was great, got a little hot, but not too hot. On top of all that, I got to spend some time with my closest friends Carrie and Jessica, while seeing and laughing with my sister at the same time, a win/win all round.
Right now it's only 5pm and I am ready for bed...
Heidi is 8, and to this day I can still truly remember the day before her birth and her actual birth. I was scheduled to be induced, two weeks early, because I have high blood pressure and I was a ball of excitement and nerves. When she was born I could not stop kissing this little girl that I bought into the world, I was besotted with her from the moment I laid eyes on her, squished up face and all.
A happy birthday to my gorgeous now 8 year old girl.
