Sophie's Second Birthday



Today is a happy day in our household as it is Sophie's second birthday.  This past year has seen our little one go from baby-faced bub to toddler to little girl...



My darling poppet,

The past year since your first birthday has been such a fun-filled and precious one.  There have been many milestones to celebrate, many sad 'lasts' and many exciting 'firsts... lots of changes, each one of which has made me wish I could slow down time just a little bit and stop you growing quite so fast.

However, as your babyhood has faded away and you've become a little girl, you've blossomed into such a character... a character we all love more and more every day.  You are strong-willed and fiery and prone to the odd tantrum.  But you are also oh-so-lovable and affectionate, showering us with cuddles, kisses and endless "I wuv you' phrases.  You are sweet and caring, have beautiful manners and your speech is very advanced.  You are animated and expressive with a cheeky streak that sees you often up to mischief... and just as you were as a chubby faced baby, you are still a such a happy soul with an infectious smile that brightens up our days and makes us love you all the more as each new day arrives.  You truly have completed our family.

Every night as I tip-toe into your room to check on you, I look down at your precious little face resting on your pillow and I remember fondly back to all those nights I tucked you into your bassinette as a baby... and as I creep back to my own bed, I think about how blessed I am to be your Mummy and how grateful I am that you are mine.

All my love on your second birthday... xx
