I am now feeling much better and today I am thrilled to be back with another My Captured Moment post.
The idea is simply to share photographs that have captured a special moment in life. A moment to treasure and remember forever.
I took this photograph last week. Little Miss H and I were sitting on the sofa having a snack and chilling. I glanced over at her and for a moment she took my breathe away.
She looked so serene. So beautiful. And so grown up.
Growing up too fast
To our darling daughter,
In the past month, you have grown up so much.
Your vocabulary is amazing and some of your favourite words include “squid”, “porcupine pufferfish” and “sea sponge”. All thanks to your obsession with the Octonauts.
You no longer want to sit in your high chair. Instead you want to eat your meals sitting at the table like mummy and daddy. You even have a favourite chair. Which just so happens to be your daddy’s seat of choice. I’ll let you guys fight over that one.
You wants to dress yourself every morning. And insist on wearing a “pretty dress” and nothing else. Never mind the weather or the fact that a thin sun dress is completely impractical on occasions.
You are now lord and master of your own nap schedule. On some days you’ll take a nap. But mostly you are having too much fun to sleep during the day.
Every night, we read you a story, you have a little bit of milk and then you ask to go in your cot. You go to bed awake and mummy and daddy often listen to you chattering to Maxi the Monkey, Kwazii Cat, Tigger, Tiny Clanger and Manket (your blanket) before you eventually drift off to sleep.
You surprise me every day. But, to be honest, this business of growing up amazes and saddens me in equal measure.
I am amazed and proud at the lovable, cheeky, kind, feisty, funny and independent little girl that you are.
But I am saddened that your baby days are now behind us.
Mummy and daddy love you so much. And we are so excited that we get to have more and more adventures together as you get older.
But, dear baby girl, please don’t grow up too fast. It feels like we’ve only just started this journey together.
Hugs and kisses
