Birthday celebrations

I cannot believe that another set of birthday celebrations have begun. When you have kids everyone tells you enjoy them while they are young because they grow up so fast and it is true they really do, the time seems to fly by.

I can still remember the day like it was yesterday, 8 years ago I gave birth to my first daughter, 12 days overdue and 25 hours of labour before I finally got to meet her. 9 months of pregnancy made completely worth while.

After all of the wondering about what she would look like, what colour eyes would she have, would she have any hair, I was just pleased and relieved to have her in my arms.

It is mad how that motherly instinct seems to instantly kick in, it was like she had always been there and there was certainly no way I could ever live without her.

Over the years I have watched her go from a baby, to a toddler, to a very clever young girl. The one thing that took a while to change was her hair, she was a little baldy for a long time!!

Along the way she has become a big sister three times!!!

She makes me proud to be her mummy every single day. Always eager to learn, she is teaching me new things all of the time.

I'm looking forward to many more years of her amazing and astounding me.

Happy Birthday Elise.
