A little letter to Lily…


Lily today you have really blown me away, even though you can be a right handful at times.

It all started this morning while walking to nursery, for some strange reason you was very interested with the fact you was in my tummy. You was asking all sorts of questions, but you found it very funny when I told you that you kicked me all the time and even more funny when I told you that you pooped in me (At the time a very worrying moment for mummy)

After all that explaining you then came up with the conclusion that I must get a baby inside my belly and that I have to give you and Laila six brothers!! SIX!! A very funny moment for me and even more funny when you asked if you could help me put a baby in my tummy… I just had to laugh that one off as I don’t think you are quite ready for that information as of yet.

After picking you up from nursery, you was so happy to tell me about your day and how it was your friends birthday today, you told me that you got to watch her blow out her candles while singing her happy birthday.. You was so happy you got to do this, it was so sweet! I also noticed that some of the other children made a card for mothers day, so I asked you if you have made a card.. Your reaction was so funny! You said “oh no sorry about that mummy, I can do one another day.”  Of course you can Lily!

This one really blew me away! We have just mastered counting to twenty but today you started counting to thirty with hardly any help! Now to me that is amazing!! You are well and truly a super star and you are most definitely going to be a clever one 🙂

This is where it gets a little emotional for me.. You really did touch my heart! Here is how the conversation went;

You: Mummy, you are my little princess and so is Laila

Me: Aww Thats very kind of you Lily, you are my little princess as well

You: And daddy is our handsome prince!

That was so heart touching! I really am going to remember that moment forever!

One thing I must say to you is.. You are very impatient about growing up, you are actually getting upset with how long it is taking.. Well to mummy it is going by way to quickly!

Love you lots little princess x

A little letter to Laila…

Laila x

Right Laila can you please tell me what has happened? When did my little girl grow into such an independent madam?

Mummy is so amazed this week! You have really and truly blew me off my feet, you have started using the potty then if that wasn’t enough you have taken sleeping in your own bed!

I really cannot believe you are going to be two this month.. You still seem like my little baby but when I take a step back and look I realise how much you have grown, I am actually getting all emotional writing this. I just cannot believe how clever and cheeky you are, like the other day we had our very first bicker I actually couldn’t believe my ears! You was poking the stereo speaker which you know your not allowed to do so mummy reminded you.

Me; “Laila stop poking that please, you could break it.”

Laila; ” I’m not.”

Me; “You are baby I can see you.”

Laila; ” I’M NOT.”

Then all I heard was your dad laughing I think he couldn’t believe what he was hearing either. We are getting a lot more of this “I’m not” Business, while at the time its very cute and clever of you.. it is still very cheeky and mummy has to explain a lot because you throw the “whys” at me every time.

Oh today! You and your sister melted my heart.. I wish I could of got this moment on camera, since moving you into Lily’s room, you two have been different! You two actually want to play with each other but this moment was so amazing to me, you two was watching frozen and I could hear you two singing along to “Let it go” so I walked past the bedroom to have a look and you two was standing looking at each other singing with the biggest’s smiles on your faces (oh no mummy has started the water works!) But that moment is going to stay in my heart forever!

I used to be worried that you and your sister wouldn’t get along at all but that moment I could see that you two are going to be just fine. Well sometimes I know sisters have their moments but I will be there for you and your sister though I still have a few years until then.

I just cannot believe you are going to be two, I am excited to watch you form your personality even more and watch you grow while I give you guidance

Another milestone!

Time really does fly by especially when you become a mum, you notice this even more when your children hit them extra special milestones!

I never thought Laila would be hitting this milestone so early! So when she started showing signs I was in complete shock and more than happy to assist her. So you can guess I was even more happy when she actually done her first poop and wee on the potty!! I was slightly more shocked as I had a lot of trouble with getting Lily to poop on the potty.. But Laila definitely took it with ease apart from wearing knickers! But I am very proud of her!

proud mama

Even though I am slightly becoming emotional that my baby isn’t that much of a baby any more she is growing up ever so quickly and becoming such a smart happy child just like her sister. I am still truly shocked that this milestone has been hit before the age of two but she was more than ready and I am truly proud!

getting big!
