Dear Daisy, It is your first day at school...

Daisy, a letter to you on your 2nd birthday...

To Daisy,

You are now 2!

I know it's a cliché but I really don't know where the last two years have gone, it feels like just a few months ago that we brought all 5lbs of you home from the hospital, but then it also feels like you have been part of us forever too. It's hard to remember life before you! you will probably really cringe reading this one day, I'm cringing a bit as I write it!

You make our day to day lives full of fun and laughter as we see you grow into a little lady, it isn't easy at times but we really do love it. It didn't feel like you were a baby for long as you are so independent and feisty, and want to do what ever you can for yourself! I remind you quite often that you're only a teeny tot and that you've got years and years to grow up, there's no rush! I have a feeling I'll be saying this every year from now on!

You are a strong willed little flower, who does what she wants, and only what she wants and when she wants to do it! Once you've made your mind up its very difficult to persuade you otherwise! You were such a placid baby but you've really grown into yourself and are very sure of what you like and don't like! 

This year is going to be a little different, in a few weeks time you will become a big sister to your baby brother! The house is about to get fuller and louder and hopefully even more fun for you! I'm sure it will be tricky having to share our time but just know that our love wont lessen, it will grow to love you both exactly the same!

Hopefully having a brother will mean growing up you're never lonely, never bored and will have lots of fun! I'm excited to see what you think to him when he arrives. At the moment you love babies and playing with your dolls, although you are a little amazed when you see a real life baby and are not quite sure how to be around them, you are very good just a little too loving perhaps! But you will soon get how it goes I am sure, I am sure you will love your little brother very much and help us to look after him. At nursery they tell me you like to look after the babies, making sure they're happy and entertained.

You love to be outside exploring, playing and your favourite thing to do is to play tea parties and picnics in the garden.You have helped Dad plant the salad seeds this week and pot on tomatoes and strawberries so I am sure you will enjoy watching them grow this summer!

Your eating could be better but at least you do eat even if it is only what you want to eat and nothing else. You are very stubborn and won't even try most things even though a year ago you would have tried anything I gave you to try. Luckily you eat fruit and not just bread, crackers and beige things (and that is limited, you won't even try a chip unless your cousin Mollie does!)! I really don't know where we went wrong as we introduced you to everything and anything we could but just one week you decided nope, enough was enough! And meal times became a bit of a battle, I have learnt not to get too upset over it most of the time now and will just keep trying with you! I just hope next year when I write a post like this I am saying what a wonderful eater you are!!

We still have swimming lessons and you absolutely love them, I love taking you and hope we can keep it up for as long as we can. your confidence in the water is amazing, people can never believe how well you can actually swim for a 2 year old, you have no fear at all! With some arms floats you whizz your way around the pool without thinking twice, leaving me just to watch you! We went to Centre Parcs not long ago and you had the time of your life swimming every day!

We have been on some lovely holidays this past few years and you have done lots of travelling for your young age. We have been to Cyprus, Wales, Centre Parcs in the Lake District, Italy (Venice, Verona & Lake Garda!), London, you have been very busy! I am sure we have another fun year to get started with now...

Lots of love,

Mumma xx
