My little girl has just turned four. I have no idea where the time has gone. As I sit here writing this I cannot help but smile at all of the wonderful memories she has given me; that both of my children have given me. I am so grateful to them both for bringing such magic into my life and the inspiration and joy they both give me daily.
When we asked Emily what she would like for her birthday she replied that she would like some marshmallows (a rare treat as vegetarian ones are not easy to come by) and an R.V. Of course she does, what else would a four year old ask for?!?!
We also asked her where she would like to go. The answer was to the forest to find a fairy. So off to the forest we went!
I have a few pictures I’d love to share with you, so please forgive a moment of parental pride!
After a little stop off a Llyn Brenig to stretch our legs we headed into the deep woods…
Surely we would spy a fairy…
Emily’s Daisy Doll is finally finished!
After a rest by the water’s edge, Emily grew serene…
She asked for a little story and took a short nap on my lap.
So we headed for home where a birthday cake waited.
I am so very, very proud of both of my children. When you hold your baby for the first time, and you get the overwhelming rush of love for them, no one could have ever made me believe how much that love could keep growing. All I know is, I vow to always be there for them, I will always try to catch them when they fall, let them know that their individuality should be cherished but most of all, let them know they are loved. Every. Single. Day.
I also have a thank you to give to you lovely readers – you have put up with my ramblings for a whole year now!!! Thank you!!!!!
