My beautiful girl is 8 years old and if I am allowed a moment to brag, she is just a really great kid. She is poised, confident and smart. But she still gets nervous and needs to hold me tight sometimes. She loves trying new things, but she is scared of failing. She has a hard time getting up when she's knocked down. She is a good friend, but tends to stay close to just a few. She is discovering sarcasm and nothing makes her happier than when she thinks she is in on the joke.
She butts heads with her brother but would defend him to the death if anyone else picked on him. Add she thinks her little sister is the funniest person on the planet. Nobody makes her laugh harder than Lainey. She is musical and graceful but is scared to step out of her comfort zone. She loves to read and draw. She gets bored if she has to do anything that she doesn't want to do. Her brother's soccer games are the bane of her existence.
She is delightful, stubborn, silly, brilliant, affectionate, strong-willed and it is an honor to raise this girl. I love her so.
