Florence Is 12!

Florence Is 12!

Wow. My baby girl is 12 years old and just like that she’s gone from a tiny tot to a young woman. It really has felt like the blink of an eye since I had her strapped to me in a carrier or limpet like around my body for she couldn’t be parted from me. I miss those days but am also loving being with and enjoying the fantastic girl she has grown into and I am so excited for more to come.

Kindness in abundance, I never worry she will be anything but, and this girl has all she needs to be the best she can be. She is also super bright (got into the school of her dreams), super beautiful (just look at her) and super talented (in so many ways)! Florence is just glorious at 12 and we love her more that I could even describe. This is the girl who made me a Mummy and turned a light on inside me I didn’t know could shine so brightly. She is FANTASTIC!

Happy Birthday my big girl, still my baby always though- 12 today, how about that?!
