As I gaze upon you I can’t believe the time has flown by. No longer are you resting in my arms as a tiny little thing, that liked to graze all day long, but a little girl full of energy and enthusiasm for life that will bounce on my knee and demand to watch Tommy (Thomas the Tank Engine).
You are the most caring, loving, kind hearted girl I know and I am truly lucky to be called your ‘mummy’. We've been on one roller coaster of a ride and yes we still experience turbulence now and again (tantrums) usually when you are tired.
Being pregnant with you saw me feel truly knackered then as the third trimester approached we learnt of type 2 Diabetes and a birthing pool was out of the question due to having my blood sugars monitored and a c-section deemed the way to go. It was scary having no control and having to put my faith into the hospital staff but we got through it. As you’re great grandma once said you were determined to be in this world. It was you that shaped me into ‘mummy’ for the first time and you are the one that makes me want to wake up in the morning.
During your first year we went everywhere from baby groups to the local supermarket. Many times we were stopped by admirers and you sure do know how to pose for the camera now.
The first couple of years have seen you go from having everything done for you to being one independent little girl who loves to help out around the house and when we are out and about. We have also been in hospital a lot. Mainly due to the fact that you were soon to become a big sister but also because you trapped your finger in the kitchen door accidentally.
A lot has happened in the first two years and you've dealt with the changes so well. I love you with all my heart and will never stop worrying about you as that’s what mother’s do. I've inherited it from my mother just as you will one day if you have babies of your own.
Love you to the moon and back and more x
