Happy 1st Birthday Edith12:49:00
We only had to wait 5 extra days for you to make your imminent entry into this world.
I honestly thought you to were going to be a brother for Hugh, but out popped this black haired little girl and you did catch me by surprise. I didn't think I was ready for a world of pink stuff.
But my how that changed very quickly.
Your very first minutes after you were born were with your dad you lucky thing as after a few very minor complications I had to quickly dash off for a little bit of surgery. Once I returned it was business as usual and it was love at first sight. You really were a beautiful baby.
You were so placid and happy, you had beautiful olive skin and you had a full head of black as black hair. Everybody always commented on your hair, even still today. You also looked like a little miniature girl version of your brother. Our little Hughena as your Grandmother used to say!
You did all the right things. You ate well, you slept pretty well, and you loved just sitting around and watching the world go by (as long as I was near). As you have grown you love to chat and you can already say many words. These include mum, dad, bath, pop and I reckon i've heard you even say your own name.
You didn't let me stray very far away from you for a very long time, and finally you no longer need me to nourish that your ginormous appetite of yours. (Yesssss!!!) You looooove your food and can teach that brother of yours a thing or two about eating that's for sure.
You have a smile for anyone who says hello and you love to be there right in the thick of all the action. A little bit like your mother I would say.
You love your brother very much and think he is the coolest thing going around town. You always start to look for him when he is not around and you love it when he lets you hold his favourite toys. Its very nice seeing you both getting along so well.
You always squeel with delight when dad gets home from work which we both love and its been great that your 'attachment to the mother thing' has wained so that he is able to do all the 'dad' stuff with you and that you can see how much he loves his 'fluffy little rabbit' too.
You have striking resemblences to your aunty Cecilia. Your looks, your personality and everything in between. I think that is awesome and crazy all at the same time and ill let you know right now that you wont have a worry in the world if you are anything like your aunty Cec!!
We all hope you have a wonderful 1st birthday.
Happy Birthday Edith.
