Averie Grace, 8 years: Smyrna, TN Photographer {Playing dress up in Mommy's Wedding Gown}

 Averie Grace. 
I can't believe you are eight.

Time passes entirely too quickly. You are my favorite little girl in the entire universe. 

You've been asking for quite some time if you could play in my wedding dress and I promised you that as soon as the new studio was done, I would let you play and we would make that the very first shoot we did.

You thought playing in my gown was magical. This was so special for both of us. You pretended you were getting married and danced and laughed, but then you were done quickly. You said it was itchy and asked if you could take it off and we could go play. Ha ha ha.

You are wise beyond your years. You soak information up like a sponge and when you read something once, it stays with you forever. (You are just like your Daddy that way.) You want to read all day long and every time we get in the car, you bring a stack of books with you. I love your mind.

You are such a little light, baby girl.

You are super emotional and it's sometimes hard to get you to understand that little things that you think are a huge deal really don't matter at all. You feel everything in your core and that makes you easily angry, upset, excited, or completely heartbroken in an instant. I love that you feel so much.

You are extremely goofy. You think you are hysterical, but more often we laugh at you losing it over what you think was funny. Your giggle hits me in the heart. It lights up our house every day.

You love to sing, dance, and put on shows for us, but claim you are too shy to do it front of anyone else. I don't believe it for a minute. You like to be in control and can be bossy at times. (Just like your mommy). I know this means you are going to be a strong woman when you grow up. 

This is the 5th year we've done these questions and it's so much fun looking back to see how your answers change and mature.
