Turning 8 ~ and growing up!

My beautiful oldest granddaughter, recently turned 8..  When I was lucky enough for her to enter my life, she was 2 1/2 and just as beautiful as can be

Now she is 8 years old!! She had her birthday part a while back, and I’m lax in getting it posted (shame on me).  But she had a family bd party, then two of her friends and her had a “spa” sleepover!  I’m not sure what all went on, but I saw some really pretty nails!!

Courtney is my gem!  She is so smart!  I could listen to her read all day long!  She is reading on a 5th grade level and she’s just good!!  I love to get her to read to me!!  She has fantastic grades, her report card is always high A’s!

I am just so incredibly proud of her!

My little girl is growing up.  And while she won’t be that “little girl” for long, she will always be that little girl in that halloween costume when I first met her!

Courtney you are such a wonderful granddaughter and it is a pleasure to be in your life!  I’m glad Brian picked your mom, so that you could be a part of our life!  You have blessed me with your smiles, your excitement over things, your intelligence, your beauty and you just being you!  I’m honored to be your memaw and love you so very much.

Your entrance into our family has made my life so peaceful in so many ways you will never imagine.  I never dreamed that I could love someone as much as I loved my own kids.  And then you came along, and while you have this huge family that is your real family, and what kid can be so blessed to have so many grandparents!!, you have just made my life better from the day you entered it.

I look forward to Wednesdays and the Sundays you are home, I can’t wait to see you cheer and whatever else comes your way, I hope you always know that no matter what, I will always be there to cheer you on and I will always love you and be here for you!!

Courtney, remember always, that God is always with you, that he is watching over you and that he will protect you from the bad things, and guide you through life, but you have to always keep your eyes on him!

As you grow a little older and go into those preteen and then on into the teenage years, I hope you can remember the basic foundations that you are learning in Sunday School and Awana.

Okay, enough of the sappy stuff.  Now, I can’t wait till vacation this summer!  I’ve seen you go from that little girl who would get on the slide to one that’s not afraid to do anything at the waterpark, and I can’t wait to see what happens this summer!!  Vacations are a blast with you!  I love your imagination, you willingness and your sweet spirit!

I love you with all my heart, and while this is late, Happy 8th Birthday Courtney!

I love you bunches,

Memaw!
