The Friday Focus 28/10/16 – Celebrating Sophie’s birthday

This week has been all about getting ready for, and celebrating Sophie’s birthday.  I can’t quite believe that my baby girl is now three – and telling me quite firmly “I’m not a baby, I’m a little girl!”  Quite right too, but she’ll still always be my baby no matter how big she gets!… Read more

Now you are three

Darling Sophie

Today you are three years old.  Those three years since you were born have passed by in the blink of an eye.  No longer a baby, no longer really a toddler – you are a little girl who likes to be as independent as possible.  “I can do it myself!” is a phrase I hear frequently – and you are determined to at least give it a try even if you sometimes do end up asking “can you help me, Mummy?”  I love your determination and your willingness to try.… Read more

Birthday fun at the park - Little Hearts, Big Love

Birthday fun at the park

With Daddy being away on Sophie’s birthday, I decided against organising a birthday party and instead opted for a bit of an “open house” instead so that everyone who wanted to could pop in and wish Sophie a happy birthday. We had visits from Grandma, Grandad, Auntie Marls and the girls’ friends H and E in the morning but by early afternoon, the girls were starting to get cabin fever.… Read more

Darling Sophie,

How can it be that you are two? It hardly seems possible that it has been two whole years since you came into our lives and yet it seems almost impossible to remember a time when you weren’t here.

The Friday Focus 15/05/15

This last week has been a busy but enjoyable one. Last Saturday was my birthday and the celebrations felt like they lasted all weekend thanks to various different events that were planned. Mid-week found me in a reflective and thankful mood thanks to another milestone moment – four years since the hospital appointment where we were told there was almost no hope of Jessica being suitable for surgery.… Read more

The Friday Focus – 31/10/14

This week’s word of the week is:

WOTW 31-10-14Sophie turned one on Monday and we celebrated her birthday with a party on Saturday with family and friends. Both the girls had a wonderful time.

Looking back on summer

Jessica’s birthday marks the end of the summer for us (although with return of some warm sunny weather at the moment, it still feels like summer is lingering for a while longer). Our first summer as a family of four has been a lovely one – we have been out and about a lot and spent lots of time with family and friends.… Read more
