Yesterday our gorgeous girl turned four years old – and I can still hardly believe it. This probably sounds a bit daft, but to me four sounds so much older than three. Four is no longer a toddler and Lucia loves to call herself a big girl.
This past week has been one of excitement as she has counted down the days to her birthday so she could be four just like her best friend. Every morning she’d wake up and tell us how many sleeps to go until the big day – though that morning she still double checked to make sure she was officially four!
It has been a busy weekend of parties, presents and lots of cake and in her words she had ‘the most awesome birthday ever!’.
Yesterday also marked the second birthday of this blog – and it is something I am really proud of. I love writing it (though sometimes it can be hard to find the time!) and feel privileged to have been able to meet some wonderful people through it who are a fantastic source of support and advice whenever we need it.
So here’s to the next year of blogging and a happy birthday (one day late) to our happy, kind, funny, smart, determined and inspirational little girl.
