Yesterday was Button’s 4th birthday.

As she’s now a big girl, the required birthday treat was a trip to Starbucks for smoothies and toasted teacakes.

As soon as Daddy got home from work we headed to the park to make the most of the last of a sunny day and try out the new scooter she received for her birthday.

After an understandably shaky start, and with a charming degree of determination

she cracked it

How did it happen that the quiet and developmentally delayed little girl who came home to us only 3 short years ago is now scooting round the park and preparing to go to school?

It’s shocking how much I love her (and her brother), how proud I am of them and how amazing I think they are.

This little miss is beautiful, yes, but also brave, funny, charming, cheeky, and loveable.  Oh and a million other good things too.

She astonishes me every day with small kindnesses, huge fearlessness, an insatiable curiosity about the world and a limitless capacity for mischief!

I am blessed to be her Mummy.  I’m thankful every day that she (and her brother) found us.

Happy birthday, my beautiful, darling girl.

    Oh, the concentration! One of my boys still does that with his tongue when he’s concentrating

    It’s too cute. I think both the husband and I do it, so I suspect it’s a family trait!.

  3. Oh Happy Birthday Button! What a fabulous scooter and I am insanely jealous of your co ordinating boots and fantastic hat 🙂

    She certainly is a little charmer! I have to say that she and her brother are also very lucky to have such dedicated and family oriented parents, who obviously love them to bits. their progress is all down to you two.

      You are too kind. They are determined little minxes, we just try to channel it. I can’t disagree that we love them to bits though! It would be a hard heart that didn’t.
