It is my big girls 4th birthday today 🙂 I am still trying to remember where all that time has gone. This time 4 years ago I was having small pains that amped up quickly and then an ambulance ride to hospital on my elbows and knees and then a CS under GA! Not exactly how I planned it but I got the cute baby none the less!
Here Ariana was brand new 4 years ago
Flash foward to today and she is a vibrant, strong minded, girly girl who loves dancing and singing. 🙂
Opening presents this morning – look at her face! 🙂
We got her a big girls bike of her own so Makayla can use her olf plastic fantastic trike (man there were some wars over that!) so when I pulled back the curtain to reveal the brand new bike on the deck her expression was of awe! 🙂
The bike even has tassles off the handle bars and is very cute with a teddy/doll carrier and safety strap – very cute! She is finding it a bit hard to push the peddles around so are saying to her she needs to eat more of her dinners to be strong – will see if that works! 😆
I also caught this special moment of hubby reading to the girls after lunch – awwwwww.
It is amazing what neat memorable photos can be taken in one day, a snapshot of our life.
😦 On another note today has bought some sad news. I actually had a very sombre sad moment this morning after my shower. My heart felt heavy for some reason which I couldn’t fathom as I thought – it’s my daughter’s birthday I should be happy! But I wasn’t. I sat on my bed for a bit and then got up and on with the day. I logged onto Facebook after lunch and read that an online friend had lost her battle this morning with cancer in four short months. 😦 I am so utterly sad for her and her family. She was chasing her dream to be a Mum and then was blessed with a natural pregnancy and had her wee boy in April. RIP dear Jenny my sweet Tuppence. You were so supportive of me through my losses and TTC days – MWAH! Kia kaha.
