So where did that year go?
Today Lola was one whole year. The one with the crazy hair. I cannot begin to express how lucky i feel to have three gorgeous and healthy children but really this one’s for Lola who totally cut me a serious wedge of slack this past year.
Her birth was fabulous. She has been a perfect newborn and a total angel baby. When people used to talk about their babies being so good , I would think ‘really, they never cry? They sleep all night from like WAY too early on etc, etc.’
But i got lucky. She is that baby. Third time lucky! Before I had her I worried about how i’d get Kitty who was starting school in the September, to school on time. How would I sort out clothes, breakfasts, getting showered and dressed and giving my new bambilino milk. I cannot tell you the amount of times she waited until after I had dropped Kitty at school to have her first drink of milk or her breakfast, without any fuss.
Although I feel the tide starting to turn, a little bit of feistiness, a lot of eating coal and a few tantrums seeping through I have to say to you my gorgeous girl, thank you. In Grandma’s words. ‘Everyone should have a Lola.’
Maybe it’s about time to write down your birth story.
P.S The kids made her cakes. Check them out in family hour next Wednesday.
