You have now been outside in the big world longer than you were inside me for today you are 40 weeks and 6 days old.
Mummy kept you warm, safe and snuggly for 40 weeks and 5 days!! Them extra 5 days are very important to me. At the time I wanted to meet you so quickly but now I wish I could relive the last few days over again. To feel you kick and hiccup and of course to give birth to you again. To hold and kiss you for the first time over and over again.
It was the most magical day of mine and daddy's life. The whole world stood still while we looked into your big beautiful eyes. To be honest my labour with you is a little bit of a blur as I look back on it but I will never forget the moments I first saw you. And I always have daddy to ask for details as he got me through each little bit!
I long for my tiny baby but now I have something just as wonderful. A beautiful little girl. You may only be just over 9 months old but you are no longer a baby. And now mummy can't wait until your walking your talking and can truely understand how much you are loved.
It's crazy to think that we have known about you for a whole 18 months. How quickly time has flown.
We can't wait to get to know you more as you grow into the big world around you.
We love you Xx
