Ten years ago today, today

My big girl slid down from the rainbow to stay
She came to bring laughter and joy to the earth
Good people and midwives attended her birth
So let's us all join in singing, with joyful birthday bells ringing
Happy birth day to my girl, happy birth day to my girl...


Oh how I loved her then, instantaneously, with everything that I was ~ ... 'and before she was here an hour I would have died for her'...

She is having a sleepover party on Friday to celebrate hitting double figures!...the sleeping will be preceeded by chocolate fondue (perhaps not much sleeping will happen?). I'll give them all pancakes and berries for breakfast before filling them full of birthday cake and sending them home. See how much I love her still!

That is really beautiful Shannon! How did she react upon waking up to her special blanket?

Wishing the big girl a wonderful birthday today, oh what fun she will have tomorrow night! (and you - with all that chocolate!) Such a beautiful image - it looks like you were fortunate to have two amazing births.
