Tia, as I’m writing you this letter you are about to turn one. One whole year old, twelve months and I’m so incredibly proud of you.
I still remember the very first time I met you, you were wide awake and so alert. You looked in your mummy’s eyes with your beautiful brown ones and I cried with joy and happiness and a love so strong. You were the most perfect little person I have ever laid eyes on. You still are one year on, though you have mesmerising blue eyes now instead of brown.
You have kept me so busy this past year, everyday learning something new. There have been days where I cried I was so tired, but you are so worth the tears. You have the cheekiest smile and your giggle makes me laugh nearly every time It’s infectious!
This last year has gone so quickly, and I’m looking forward to seeing what the next year will bring.
Everyday you learn something new, watching you high five with your daddy makes my heart melt <3
You are such a daddy's girl, you squeal with absolute delight when he puts his key in the door on his return from work. You stop whatever it was you were doing at the time and run to the baby gate shouting "dad dad daddy dad" It's adorable.
You then make him chase you round for a kiss, you don't make it easy for him. This is a game you play everyday When he catches you you give him kisses and hugs freely before going back to whatever it was you were doing before he came home.
I'm the one you run to when you are unwell or upset, only mummy will do in these times.
When teething especially we have lots of cuddles.
We don’t have as many cuddles these days compared to when you were tiny, you are fiercely independent and cuddles are just far to restricting for your liking!
You adore your grandparents, both sets of them. They both spoil you rotten and you have all four of them wrapped found your tiny perfect little finger.
You had so much fun at your party, all your friends and some close family came round to see you and help celebrate.
I really cannot “write” how much I love you, but you will feel my love for you everyday. You have done already for 12 whole months! Happy birthday my beautiful perfect daughter. Lots of love, mummy and daddy xxx
