Today you turn 12 years old, 12 how did that happen.
These past couple of days I have been sitting and thinking back to 12 years ago, when I was sitting in my hospital bed eagerly waiting your arrival, a day I had once thought would never happen.
At 3.45am on 7th November you came into our lives and the love I felt for you hit me so hard, as my newborn Daughter laid in my arms.
Over the years you have grown from a beautiful baby, into a cheeky mischievous toddler, with your cheeky chatter and fun, into a fun and cheeky little girl, with a laugh that can make even the most miserable person smile, into the young lady you are now becoming.
We have seen your first steps, heard your first words, sometimes I do wonder why I taught you to speak, but I do love our little chats. We have had your first day at school, so many first to mention.
You are now 12, yes I know I keep saying it, but when I look at you now, I feel so very very proud of the beautiful young lady you are becoming.
You are kind, caring, funny, you make both myself and your Dad very proud, please do not ever change.
You know your own mind and you do not follow a crowd which is something I admire in you.
Today, is your day and I am looking forward to our girls day out, just you and me and hitting the shops.
Happy Birthday Sweetheart
