Only two months late, I’m finally getting round to sharing some photos I snapped of our little firecracker back on her second birthday. Born in March, I doubt there’ll be many a birthday spent in the snow. Although it was freezing, a photoshoot in the beautiful white stuff was definitely not to be missed.
There was a little girl,
Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good,
She was very, very good,
But when she was bad, she was horrid.
Ebonie, apart from the little curl is behind your ear, this nursery rhyme sums you up perfectly. For the majority, you’re the happiest, most easy going little person; but the minority is not always pretty! You’re fiery, determined, stubborn and wild; characteristics that will hopefully serve you well later in life. You know what you want, and you don’t like to take no for an answer.
You love princesses and paw patrol equally. You’re not afraid to get dirty, and when you fall you get right back up again and keep marching. I love the way you run to the door when you hear your Daddy is home. You love your ‘B’ and ‘dodo’, and you adore your siblings. I still feel like the most important person in the world to you, and I remind myself to soak it all up, because I know you’re independence will come round all too soon.
Trying not to tame you’re strong-willed personality, I want to shape you into the best person you can possibly be. You are going to take this world by storm; I already know you are going to fly high.
You love life, and you fill our days with so much fun and I wouldn’t change you for the world. I thought this quote described Millie as a toddler, until you came along and showed us the true meaning:
“And though she be but little she is fierce.”
