so... i made something VERY clear to scout a few months ago.
she wasn't allowed to turn 9.
i told her we would give her a "special day" and celebrate her, but "no turning 9".
i tried, but i failed.
here she is.
N I N E Y E A R S O L D
I just can't take it. she is getting too old!
someone make it stop.
the girl with a heart of gold.
i've never met someone quite like scout. she is the most kind, loving, gentle, hardworking, sweet, silly, and thoughtful person i have ever met. if you know her, you know exactly what i mean.
as much as i want her to stay little, i am excited to see how changes this world as she grows. this girl is absolutely destined for greatness.
happy birthday, scoutie girl. i love you more than you'll ever know. <3
