I started blogging in September of 2007. Laci’s first birthday was the first “birthday” blog post I ever wrote. And here I am, writing her eighth. *sigh* She has been a joy to our lives. She has the most expressive face! In fact, her face broadcasts her emotions even more than the normal person. We have to caution her about even the tiniest bit of pouting, because it shows up like a flashing neon sign in the darkness. Laci is the most hugging, kissing child I’ve ever had, too. She hugs me at least three times a day, sometimes more. She is very tenderhearted, especially toward animals. She recently told me that she wanted to President. If she was the President, she would pass a law that businesses couldn’t put spikes on the signs on buildings to prevent birds from building nests! She loves birds and squirrels and dogs and cats. Some of us here at the Basham hacienda are allergic to cats, and she sweetly agreed to never have an indoor cat so that I could come visit her.

As with each of my children, I could write a book about the laughter and love they have brought into my life, and the lessons they have taught me without even knowing it, but I’ll spare you since I’m positive you have a life to live yourself. 🙂 Thanks for spending part of it here.

Before I go, here are eight photos for eight years.
