Bella Turns 5!

My baby Bella you are 5 years old today! 

This time 5 years ago I was probably trying to negotiate ‘just a little bit’ more pethidine out of the midwives – Saying ‘please I wont tell anyone’ does not work just FYI. 

It was all so worth it.

You gave us such a scare when you were born no breathing straight away it was terrifying seeing everybody flap about, pressing buttons and calling doctors. Thankfully you were back with me within a few minutes just led in my arms just staring up at me with those big blue eyes of yours.

You putting on a big show was probably a sign of things to come…

Time has flown and I am amazed at just watching the little girl you have turned into. Each and everyday you make me and your sisters laugh so much with your funny jokes and general crazy antics.

I was so nervous about you starting school 4 months ago, you could be quite a mummy’s girl but I needn’t have been. You settled in so well, making friends and progressing amazingly with your reading and writing.

You’ve grown in independence more than I ever expected in the last few months. While it is lovely to see, it’s a constant reminder that you my girl are growing into your own little person who isn’t so reliant on her mummy anymore, but I am so proud.

Keep making us laugh. Keep being wacky – Just keep being you!

Happy Birthday my little mini me. Love you nutcase.

    This was so sweet. I kept saying I couldn’t understand why they kept interrupting me sucking on the gas and air and trying to listen to my hypno birthing to ask stupid questions. They then didn’t believe i needed to push either. Lovely post 🙂
