naomi turns 8

Our oldest girl turned 8 last weekend! How has it already been 8 years since she came into our lives?! It feels like just yesterday we were driving to the hospital on that gray and rainy evening, so excited/nervous/anxious to finally meet our little baby girl. What a journey it's been. She has grown so much this past year and we're just in awe of the beautiful young lady she is becoming. She's the most amazing big sister and I just love watching her blossom in her creativity and passions (and she is oh so much like me at that age...sensitive and caring and a little too serious at times). I can't wait to see what this year holds for her!

Since we are having a joint birthday party for our two June girls in a couple of weeks, we had kind of a low key day and celebrated with a birthday breakfast, playing at the beach, and a sunset picnic dinner (complete with her favorite German pretzels and fresh cherries). Naomi absolutely loves being by the water and it's really just a happy place for us to hang out, so it was the perfect way to spend her day! Here is a little video with snippets of our time...
