Today we celebrate Isabella, our amazing, smart, loving, funny and beautiful girl. It's so hard to believe she's turning 8 years old. I know it's the biggest cliche out there, but really... where has the time gone?! It's been such an honor and a wonderful adventure watching her grow and turn into the extraordinary person she is.
In an effort to document her, who she is and where she's at in life right now, I thought it would be fun to do a short interview with her. And that went a little something like this:
What is your favorite thing to do right now?
Go swimming at Tata's (grandma's) pool with my cousins and my friends, because we use our imagination to make up a lot of fun games.
What's your favorite food?
What's your favorite drink?
Diet Dr. Pepper... it's really yummy and tasty and good!
What's your favorite TV show?
What's your favorite movie?
Monsters University, because it's about two "people" becoming friends in a very cool way.
What's your favorite thing to play?
Games on my tablet, especially Diner Dash.

No school! (with no hesitation whatsoever!)
