How can it be that this beautiful little lady has been in our lives for 6 years already. I still remember the day that she was born like it was yesterday, it was hot sunshine and I had to have a fan constantly blowing on me in hospital (we were allowed them at the time). I honestly thought she was never going to actually come out. After keeping us waiting for 10 days over her due date, she actually arrived just half an hour before I was due to be induced which I think set the precedence for her, she will only do things when she wants to IN HER TIME!! She is actually frustratingly a mini-me, she is a fussy eater, I was a fussy eater, she is a stubborn little monkey, I’m a little bit stubborn . . . ok I’m REALLY stubborn!! I could go on forever with our similarities but I won’t bore you with the details.
In her 6 years, Little Bean has made us laugh out loud with her funny ways, she makes us proud, she has made me cry on more occasions that I care to recall through her challenging ways and she has melted my heart time and time again. Even on her toughest days I wouldn’t change her for the world because she is and always will be our beautiful daughter, our one and only daughter whom we love more than words could ever say. I am sure that she will grow up to achieve great things because she knows what she wants and she doesn’t stop until she gets it and she will not be anybody’s fool.
When it comes to her brothers it’s a mixed bag, when they WANT to get on they really can be the best of friends but when they don’t, they REALLY dont BUT if one of them were to seriously hurt themselves she would instantly forget whatever had gone on before and switch to Florence Nightingale mode, pick them up, brush them off and usher them to me whilst promising the loan of one of her toys for 26 days (or whatever figure springs into her mind) because it puts a smile back on their face. I know she loves them really.
All of a sudden Little Bean has grown up in a little lady and I love the times that I get to spend alone with her, during those days I get a little glimpse into the future and can see the days before us that I always dreamed of; girlie shopping days, spa days and lunch dates. Bring it on! The past 6 years have been a rollercoaster of emotions and I can’t wait to see what the next 6 bring, I just hope that I can soak it all up as much as I have been able to with the first 6.
We love you to infinity and beyond Little Bean xxx
