Dear Ava.........

Whilst I sit here watching you sleep, I can't help but let my mind wander to the future. To when you are older. Wondering what it'll be like when you celebrate your first birthday. When we blow the candles out on your cake. How much different will you look in a years time? Will you be stubborn or laidback? Gregarious or shy?




Or thinking about the day you take your first steps. Or the day you say 'Mummy'. Where will we be when it happens? When will it happen? And will I have weaned myself off of the coca-cola addiction I developed in pregnancy by then?

I'm thinking about you coming home from school. Helping you with your homework. And then telling you are getting too old to be helped and that it is time you did it on your own. When the truth is it is just getting too difficult for me to do.

And thinking about what you will be like as a teenager. When you start to hate me and we start to fall out. Maybe I will show you this blogpost and we will make up quicker?

But for now I am happy to just sit here and watch over you......

.......and pinch myself everytime I think about how lucky I am......

.....that you are mine......


......all mine......




.....and I get to keep you.......


........forever.
