Two years ago today I had this beautiful little girl in my arms.
She was a much awaited typical girl. She made us wait 6 days past her due date, but she was definitely worth the wait. Miss Aurora May arrived at 4:48am weighing 7lb 9oz.
A little piece of me and Liam. She was just perfect. Watching her grow up was just an amazing experience. Even though i’ve got the older two, it had been a while since I had a newborn to take care of. Each baby is a blessing – watching their personalities blossom leaves you in a state of euphoria.
I had to learn how to bring up a baby again. I was very hesitant when it came to weaning her. I always panicked incase she would choke so I took it at my own pace. She is now a gannet and will eat anything.
Her personality has definitely shone through. I can’t believe this tiny baby is now 2 years old – a boisterous little toddler who’s lovable and a little bit crazy. I’m so proud of how far she has come along with her speech. She just doesn’t stop talking now.
She learnt a new word from Daddy a while ago – ‘naan bread‘, but being a typical toddler it doesn’t come out like that. Instead she utters ‘knob head‘. As you could imagine it’s certainly a cringe moment when other people are in ear shot, but I can’t help but laugh.
Her brain is like a sponge at the moment. Being a Mum is hard but I do love watching them all grow and become who they are.
Even though I’m excited it’s Aurora’s birthday, i’m still quite emotional. She’s growing up too quickly and she will be going into playgroup in September. I’m going to cherish every moment until then, apart from the days she turns demonic – those days i’ll be hiding away scoffing chocolate.
Hold your little one’s close. They don’t stay babies for long. They change all of the time. You may not notice it on a day to day basis but looking back on the photos of our sweet girl, she has changed so much in 2 years it’s unbelievable.
