To my Princess 1,
I can’t begin to comprehend the fact that you are now 8 years old. Each year you grow older, I feel older and it’s further and further away from the moment when I was at school still.
There is so much going on in your little world that it’s really hard to keep up. I am trying my best to be who you need me to be but you ride a different roller coaster each day. That’s who you are.
You’ve recently been saying that you don’t like certain things that we know you do. I think it’s your way of trying to get closer to your school friends.
You are absolutely obsessed with Minecraft and have been for a while. In the past few weeks you’ve been playing as a team with P2, with your Uncle B and you’ve been able to chat about it with your 2nd Cousin C from Canada.
This morning you woke up and went downstairs with P2. You were under strict instructions not to open any presents until I came downstairs. I could hear you both discussing all the presents with each other. It was super cute.
We went to the pantomime today. You sat with your Nannie, Grandad, Uncle G and Great-Grandparents. We seem to be making a little tradition of a Christmas Eve/birthday pantomime trip.
We then had Great-Nanny, Nannie and Uncle G over for some party food and just to spend some time with you on your birthday. I don’t think you realise how lucky you are to have such a supportive family.
I think your favourite birthday gift this year was definitely your Minecraft hoodie that you wore all day. You also loved the Num Noms too.
You are definitely forming little friendships with your sisters in your own little way. You have a kind heart deep down it just needs some gentle reassurance to let it shine through.
I am so incredibly proud of your strength each day. Happy birthday my darling!! I really hope you’ve had a lovely day.
Love Mummy x
