So here we are again, another birthday for my sweet little Maisie Miao Miao. And once again I’m feeling that the years are passing too quickly, I mean seriously, where have they gone? Each year I say the same thing, that it seems like just a short time ago when we saw her cue ball cutie face for the first time and she was just a scared little 14 month old being placed in our arms. Each year I also say that I can’t believe how grown up and mature she looks though it’s the same sweet face from when we first laid eyes on her.
Maisie is my sweet, kind, hard working, generous, smart, sassy, beautiful, caring, talented, athletic and loving girl. She is excelling in and loving fourth grade and she still loves being at her gym and is having a fabulous time training for her upcoming USA level 6 season. Each and every day I feel so lucky that Maisie’s my daughter and I adore watching her grow into the person she is and can only imagine the adult she’ll become. Though I wish I could slow down time and keep her my wee little baby girl forever, I look forward to each new day with my girl, seeing all that she is, does and accomplishes. She is my A-Maisie-ing Maisie Miao Miao.
This year for her birthday Maisie asked to have some of her favorite girls over for a pajama, candy eating, sit around the fire pit & roast hot dogs and marshmallows, chalk, play together, gymnastics, decorate cupcakes, hang around like-big-girls party. So that’s exactly what she got.
Happy Birthday my sweet little Maisie Miao Miao, I love you more and more each and every day and each and every year.
Maisie, ready to celebrate with her friends. (Thanks to Lisa for this and most of the pics in this post)
Friends with chalk on the driveway.
More work for the girls as they had to roast their own giant marshmallows.
At 10PM it was time to hand out goodie bags and say good night to her friends. It was exactly the party that Maisie had wanted but she was tired and ready for bed! Thanks everyone for making Maisie’s birthday party so much fun!
I have to share these cute pictures of Maisie at her gym.
I still can’t believe that my girl is really eight but here’s photographic evidence showing my sweet little Maisie on her birthday through the years.
