Kit Kat, what a year it’s been. And today, you’re frickin’ EIGHT.

Year six · Year five · Year four · Year three · Year two · Year one · Year zero

Grade 2, Brownies, piano, choir, friends, birthdays, animals, adventures . . . it’s been another amazing year for my little.

And another year of great Kitara quotes . . .
