Our Rainbow Turns Two

Penny, you've been in our lives for two years now while I see that as completely obscure that time has gone that quick already, its as if you've always been in my life. You are the most natural presence in my entire life, I cant remember a life that didn't include you. We share everything from toilet trips, to food, tears, laughter, and even share a bed more nights that not.

Two years of observing you, cherishing you, and loving you has me completely and utterly overwhelmed with emotion over you. All good of course. I do my best to keep you healthy, happy, and I make sure you feel loved as much as I possibly can. Nothing else in my day matters unless I have those three things checked off. A mothers job is never done because I will always do my best to make sure they are accomplished everyday.

I know one day your'll be bored of my mummy pampering and you wont want to play silly little games with me on the floor, and wont like me singing to you in public. But, for now at two years old you think I'm amazing and you love all the silliness, the cuddles, and the fussing. I'll treasure that for as long as you allow me.

Me and your daddy love you so much sweetheart, often we joke together saying 'God, shes got us round her little finger already, we're too soft'. We just never want to see you sad, or distressed as it hurts our hearts it really does. Just know that when we do have to pull out the firm guns its only because as parents we have to teach you simple life skills such as right and wrong. These skills are to help you grow into the world safely and confidently to guide you into the person you will become in the future. We only want the best for you and sometimes well at any time chocolate and crisps just don't make for a good breakfast Penny-pops, please stay away from the snacks at least until you've had your porridge and fruit.

We've had such an amazing two years with you, you've taught us true happiness and we hope to do you proud.

This your'll hear thousands of times over the years just so you never forget it for a single moment I'll say it now. We adore and love you more than you can ever imagine, you are our special girl and we couldn't be more proud of you.

Lots of love, 

Mummy & Daddy x

    I, for some reason, thought time would slow down a bit after Jasmine's 2nd birthday but nope, it's whizzing by faster than ever.
