It's the middle of March, and 2 years ago, I was either snuggling a teeny, tiny 2 week old baby girl, or wrapping her close to me while I chased after her then 2 year old brother. This baby girl is now a fierce, determined and fearless 2 year old herself, who can assert her thoughts and desires loudly and with confidence. She strikes equal amounts of joy and terror in our hearts every day (this means I will get a mellow teenager....right?) and I just don't know where the time has gone - it doesn't feel like 2 year since she came in to the world. Even then she was making her mark, arriving early, with my waters breaking the day after I did my last newborn session before maternity leave. She's been blazing down her own path right from the start, and I can't wait to see where it takes her. I'm hoping she'll inherit my love of books, photography and the signs are already there that we are destined to spend a lot of time at riding schools - our poor rocking horse is suffering from exhaustion!
We couldn't love her more, and when she's not in trouble for interfering with his Lego, she is utterly adored by her big brother. I'm going to be in trouble as their friendship grows - they already do a good job of ganging up on me to get what they want!
