My baby girl, you turn four today and I can't quite believe it. This time four years ago our world was changed forever.

It doesn't seem like five minutes since your last birthday, let alone four whole years since the day you were born and this tiny screaming baby was placed on my chest. I felt such overwhelming love for you since I laid my eyes on you for the first time and even now, just watching you and how independent you have become. I love being a Mum and although it hasn't been the easiest journey, I wouldn't change it for the world. It makes me so emotional how fast you're growing and how another year has passed in a blink of an eye.

Although you can be really stubborn at times, you really are a lovely little girl and a pleasure to be around (most of the time!). You're so sweet and affectionate and you're also really funny and you love nothing more than making people laugh! You're pretty laidback and you definitely take after me when I say you love your sleep! You make friends quite easily and you love being around other children. You seem to get on well with everyone, which I'm sure will help come September when you start school.

I don't know why, but to me four just seems so grown up yet still so little for school. I'm pretty sure you're ready for the next adventure, but you are still my baby and I'm terrified when I think about all of the changes that are going to happen in just a few short months. This year also sees you become a big sister, which you're so excited about! I just know you will be amazing with your baby sister and I can't wait to see your bond grow.

We are so proud of you and we love you more than you will ever know.
