We truly didn't mind what gender the baby was, as it had just been three months since my brother had died, all we cared about was that the baby was healthy. I must admit I was almost 100% sure that the baby was going to be a boy, I don't know why, I just was. So you can imagine my surprise when I saw that it was a little girl. I'll never forget that moment. Pure joy.
Little Ava Elizabeth had arrived and she was about to turn our world upside down. Having a little boy would have been great but being a girly girl myself I find having a little girl is just wonderful. At 26 months old her company is the best (when she's in a good mood). I thought I'd share with you some of the things I love the most about my girl:
I love it when I go to open the fridge and find your random wooden food in there
I love it when you get right in my face, far beyond personal space, to tell me something
I love it when you do your funny little walk when your on a mission, like an old lady power walking
I love it when you're bossy at bed time, forcing my head onto your pillow and stroke my face
I love it when you say "Kiss, cuddle, stroke" and you stroke my hair like a cat
I love how you make me laugh with the funny things you say, like telling everyone I'd lost your library book
I love how independent and determined you are, desperately trying to put your shoes on but putting them on the wrong feet
I love the special bond we have and how excited I get to see you when we've been apart
I love that you enjoy cooking and reading as much as me, hopefully it'll be something we share
I love how you enjoy having your nails painted, a true girly girl
I love how you sometimes still get shy around people and cling to my leg
I love the fact that although you're growing much too quickly you'll always be my little girl
I love you so much my heart could burst
There are so, so many more but I'll leave you with this short list for now.
