My Girl

We were Team Yellow throughout my pregnancy. We wanted that element of surprise and although I was slightly envious of those who found out and who were preparing their nurseries accordingly, the anticipation and excitement that I had bubbling inside was totally worth the wait.

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.

Did you know I've recently started a YouTube channel? I've been vlogging weekly, in the run up to my wedding. I'd love you to subscribe.
