Watching you grow and blossom over the last year has been a little surreal, I gaze at you often when you aren't looking and get lost in the innocence you still have in abundance, I hope you retain this for a long while to come, it is so comforting and familiar. I'm already thinking about the things I'm going to miss when you grow up and am bathing in every moment and clinging onto things for just that little while longer, this last year has been a blast, we've had so much fun and we've covered so much ground.
You started nursery in January and loved it from the minute you went through the red door, you took your daddy's heart failure in your stride and have helped him recover with your unconditional love and making him watch endless Peppa Pig episodes tucked up on the sofa together. You show tremendous ways beyond your years in your love for our dog who needs a helping hand as he cannot see anymore, you help him find his way back home and feed him doggy chews, he loves you especially when you give him the remnants of your dinner in his bowl!
And talking of food, you have a thing for the kitchen and can put together a "meal" for yourself, raiding the fridge and cupboards for biscuits, cheese and fromais frais complete with plate and cutlery. You are so articulate in everything you do, very precise and like mummy want to get it right first time, we won't always succeed but we'll have fun trying!
Your love of books is growing daily, along with your book collection, you really are like mummy in that respect, we both love reading, although you are still at the picture stage but are beginning to recognise words and I can hear you singing the ABC song every day as you go about your day, still getting a little confused with the U, then double U, usually it's just double, x, y, ZED!
You have become averse to the camera, which is very frustrating for me as I love taking a memory bank of photos and videos for you, one day you will love to watch them and be pleased to have them to show your children. You are still so comical and make us laugh with your antics and if I'm lucky I catch them on "film", thank goodness for digital camera's, I can click away endlessly then get the few that are great shots.
|not another photo mummy!|
Your mobile phone and computer skills are amazing and the funniest thing is seeing take photos of yourself, holding the phone in the air, it cracks me up!
You still have very little patience, but are learning, maybe you can teach mummy the secret if you find it! We are waving bye-bye to the Terrible Two's, will the temper tantrums magically disappear, I think not, but you would not
be who you are without your feisty spirit.
Happy Birthday Sweetheart
