Thinking about you…
My sweet baby girl…
The following words are a cliché, but I promise they’re all true…
I never really knew who I was, or what I wanted to be until the day I held you.
At first, just your existence made me feel complete as you thrived from within my tummy.
But since you’ve been born, I love you more every day. Nothing beats being your Mummy.
I don’t think that I’d ever be able to fully describe the adoration that I have for you.
But my sweet baby girl, I hope I’ll be able to prove it, in all of the things I do.
Knowing that I managed to make something, so unbelievably perfect fills me with pride.
I know that being a mummy can be daunting, almost scary at times- but I’m loving my little tour guide.
Showing you off to the world makes me so proud, you’re so beautiful, so intricate, so clever and so chatty.
I don’t know what I did to deserve such an incredible princess, but I’ve never been so happy.
Your toothy grin and your little laugh- everything you do, I completely adore, no matter how strange.
Everything I do, I do for you. Baby girl, that’ll never change.
A note from the future: Harriet’s words here are short and sweet and so true. It is nice to be able to go back and see these posts, and how we were feeling at the time.
