Wheeler Bea turns 10!

Wheeler Beatrice, my oldest baby turns 10 today!?  Still can’t believe it!  Her sleepover party this past Friday night, with 8 of her girlfriends, went way too smoothly.  Lanier and I both agreed it was one of the easiest parties we’ve ever thrown.  Such a sweet group of girls!

My heart.

She had a few simple requests for her birthday.  One of them was a scavenger hunt.  The girls loved it!  A quest to find their party favors.

She also asked for waffles made her special way.

On Saturday morning, they were up bright and early, but I always am anyway so it was fine.  How cute is this little cherry pj top?  Only $15 with code: DAD.

The table, all prepped for Saturday morning waffles.

Her last night as a 9-year-old!

My sweet Wheeler Bea (Beatrice) hit double-digit status today!  Cannot even believe I have a 10-year-old!  I know I’m biased when I say this, but she is the sweetest, most thoughtful little girl and always loves with her whole heart.  She sees the best in everything and is such a good example to her sister and two little brothers.  When I was pregnant with her, I always prayed to have a son first, to protect the others as they grew older.  But after having a girl, God knew what to bless me with, and I’ll be forever grateful.  So thankful He gave me a girl.  As an oldest child myself, there’s a lot of pressure to be the best example for your younger siblings, and Wheeler does it with ease.  I hope and pray she continues to stay this way!  Not if time would just slow down for a little bit, I’d be one happy mama!
