Three years ago at 4:34am our Poppy arrived after a smooth labour. She was born within 40 mins of arriving at the hospital. I remember marvelling at her, unlike Lucas she wasn’t a bit squashed up, her face was calm and relaxed as I snuggled her close on my chest, a petite little bundle.
What a wonderful day to celebrate Poppy. A little party complete with lollies and cake, our ritual birthday Powerpoint show of her growing up, backed by her favourite songs of the last 12 months (including ABBA), gifts, phone calls from her most special people, play time, dancing, books…..what more could a three year old ask for.
I’ll write more about our little singing, dancing diva and how she has grown over the last 12 months in the coming weeks. Tonight I am gearing up for the next series of Downton Abby and a little sewing time before the baby takes over my sewing room for good.
