There's lots of moments where your life changes, and four years ago today was certainly one of them!
I can hardly believe my middle child is now four!
What can I say other than I love the girl she's turned into.
She's brilliantly clever, with a wicked sense of humour and keeps me on my toes with interesting and thoughtful questions. She loves to help me when ever she can and is learning the whole time, her knowledge really does surprise me.
Yes we argue and she is sometimes too head strong, she's always active and on the go but these are traits I've given her! I sometimes worry she's a little bit too much like me!
|Yes, it's another strawberry cake - this time with a stalk. She's been on about it since her sisters party in January!|
Just the other day I was being naughty and looking at Instagram as she ran in and jumped on top of me
"What you looking at daddy?"
"Just this picture"
I replied showing her a picture someone had put on of some raspberry leaves they were making tea from.
"Why are you looking at raspberry leaves?"
And with that she ran off to do whatever she was doing. She knew they were raspberry leaves straight away without me saying anything!
She's great with the animals as well, I took her with me to catch a lamb the other day and said it had a poorly foot, she straight away knew what I was going to do to make it better!
She can even remember places that we visited when she was only one, and as we drive past recount who we went there with!
I'm so lucky to have spent so much time with my children as they grow up and I'll be forever thankful of that. I took over full time child care with her when she was 6 months old and although it not always been easy, it's always been fun!
Happy 4 Birthday my mad little girl!
