If you are my friend on facebook, you will see that every month, I post the most recent images of my little girl. If you follow my blog posts, you’ll know that she is fondly referred to as HRH (Her Royal Highness). So I have decided to transfer some of these monthly images to the blog, along with a monthly letter to my daughter. I know I’m letting you peek into my life more so than normal. I know that you will see my emotions transcribed to words. I’m okay with that. I WANT to share this incredible little girl with you. She is my life. She is my heart. And now she is about to touch yours.
As I am sitting here typing this, I can hear you softly snoring in bed. You have a nasty cough and seeing you unwell is upsetting for all of us – you fight us when we want to give you medicine. Just a few weeks ago, you would take your medicine no problem. Your daddy and I are so exhausted from how demanding you have been over the last three days – day AND night. I can’t even imagine how you must feel – being sick is horrible, and I am sure even worse if you don’t understand what is happening to you. You have always been such a healthy child, but since you started school last month you have been sick almost the entire time.
When you haven’t been sick recently, you have been saying the cutest things! I am absolutely loving this age that you are at and wish I had one of those old fashioned tape recorders handy whenever you start talking. Just some of the gems you have come out with this month:
“I can’t”. Normally said when you are asked to do something you don’t want to. Like bathing, or taking your medicine.
Just the other day when we were playing outside, you farted as you were walking and promptly turned around and said in the sternest voice I’ve ever heard you use, “Shush bum.” I cried from laughing so much!
My favourite this month has got to be when I was dressing you one morning. I started pulling your pants on, you grabbed your knees and said “bye legs – see you later”. It makes me wonder exactly what is going on in that beautiful head of yours!
You are settling in so well at school, you don’t cry anymore when I leave you there in the mornings. For Easter, we had to make you a hat to wear to show your teacher. You loved your bird hat!
We recently got a portrait of all three of us in – what a rare occurrence!
I snapped a few photos of you today – even though you weren’t feeling well, you wanted to play outside for a little while.
I hope you feel better soon baby girl. I hate being so helpless and not being able to be your hero. Tomorrow, we will sit and read books and snuggle under the covers all day.
Love you to the moon and back <3
