Today Cosette, who we affectionately call Cosie,  is 8!
 This morning she looked extra old as she came up still sporting her messy high bun from church yesterday... but still young enough to think cocoa pebbles are the best choice for your special birthday breakfast.

 Cosette is a wonderful child. We always say if she was our only child she would be perfect. But she is the quiet middle child between two loud children and sometimes she just has to "melt" in order for herself to be heard. Honestly, I don't always blame her for it. This picture sums up her life - "Let me take your birthday picture!" but first dispose of 2 or 3 or 4 siblings first so I can just get a picture of you.

Cosette is excited to be 8 so that she can be baptized and start activity days (kind of like girl scouts). Currently, she is doing piano and Spanish classes. She also loved her art classes in fall but the location was less than ideal. I am currently looking for another alternative which might just have to be me teaching classes in the shop.

She is excelling at school and is starting into the GT (gifted/talented) program. Her reading skills are incredible and tonight she is excited because she will finish reading the Book of Mormon for the first time. She is my only kid that I never have to say, "Go find something to do." to - she is great at self-directing (when Paisley allows her to) and getting lost in her own projects. Paisley and her share a room - Paisley convinces her to sleep in the same bed, come with her when she needs to get dressed, and wear matching outfits - they are best of buddies 90% of the time and I appreciate that Cosie is so easy going to deal with Paisley's I-can-never-be-alone-ness.

We are excited to celebrate our Cosie-cute today! Happy Birthday Big Girl!
