My little girl has so much hand-me-down clothes from her sister, it`s really not necessary to sew for her. Sewing cute little baby-stuff is so hard to resist, if you`ve the sweetest baby girl at home. I can tell you. But I try to be reasonable, resources arn`t endless. Still, from time to time, i make her something. Just something small. For her first birthday, i made her a dress, in one of the most beautiful fabrics i had in my stash. I just felt like wrap this special little lady in love on this day.
Is it really already one year, that you`re a part of our family? Time flies like I never dared to imagine. I just blinked and the baby days were gone. I try to cherish every moment and every step you take. I try to see the little things to remember them. First move, first time really looking at me, first time holding something, first words, first steps. Big and small things. Just our normal ordinary life that is so extraordinary beautiful since you and your big sister make our days. You are so welcome. My heart burst with love every time i look at you.
Things you love: Climbing, moving and walking. You`re a brave one, always ready to take the risk. You`re not complaining if you fall, you get up and try again. Sometimes my heart skip a beat if I left you out of sight for a few seconds, you`re so fast. I`m always ready to safe you. But you know so well what you want. And you`ll tell everybody. You can be so loud. Crazy. You love to watch your big sister. She`s your hero. You try to do everything she does. You like to hold hands if you sleep and there is nothing more beautiful than to watch you sleeping. I could look at you forever. Your skin is so soft i could kiss you the whole day. You`ve humor, you like to make fun of us. You love to fly and giggle very hard.
I`m so happy to be your mum. I love you more than I can say.
Happy Birthday my Love
