Happy Birthday, Eight Year Old Girl

Today, Lucia is eight years old. We had her immediate family + godparents celebration on Sunday (i.e. Mother's Day) because today is a choir day rehearsal. Here, Lucia blows out the candles on a gluten-free chocolate cake with coconut buttercream frosting (both recipes from the Gluten Free on a Shoestring cookbook):

It feels as if the years are speeding up.

Goodness, so old now!
It's funny, because I have the picture of her when she was two in the hall on the mirror, and she still looks the same to me... only not quite.

Oh my! Happy Birthday to Lucia! Such a gorgeous growing girl!

Thank you! Tanita, it's funny, because I look at her ultrasound photo sometimes and say, "Yup, there's that profile," but of course at the time, I had no idea what the bubeleh would look like.
