8 Year Old Crush, to Young to Have Girlfriend?

My son is 8 and has a major crush on the girl that is on his baseball team. He wants to ask her to be his girl friend, but I'm so not ready for this. I am so happy that he trusted me enough to tell me and ask me first if he can have a girl friend.

Girls Puberty and Birds & Bees Talk

What is a good age to start talking to daughter about puberty and the birds & the bees? Did you do them at same time or did you do the puberty talk first (body changes, periods, etc..) and then the birds & bees later? If did both, did you do a simpler birds & bees talk and then wait until they are a little older to give a bigger, more detail talk? It's about that time for me to have the puberty talk with my daughter and I was just looking for some advice on the birds & the bees piece and whether you did both and how much detail you went...
