Every year seems to pass by in a flash since you were born – Daisy, you are 4! I can hardly believe it! I know how precious every year we are all alive really is and I try my best to appreciate everything – even if your Birthday Party has been cancelled this year!
When your first Birthday rolled around I was really dreading the day a little. Relieving how difficult the day of your birth was, and the weeks leading up to your Birth too, but as time has gone on all the memories have faded away and now you’re asking for a brother or sister and I want to oblige! Hopefully soon!
AD. Now we move house we’ve had the perfect opportunity to cull Daisy’s clothing in size 3-4 and start dressing her in some of her new 4-5 year clothing. We’ve been received some lovely clothing from a wholesale children’s clothing website – Kimi Dog. With our new house move, it took a few weeks for Daisy to get around to wearing everything but she was so excited to have new clothes to try on! We used the move as an opportunity to have a nice de-clutter and to make sure that everything we brought into our new house was something that we actually wanted. It has been great to have lots of fresh, new and colourful clothing waiting for Daisy when we get ready for the day each month.
I can vividly remember your 1st Birthday. As the day drew closer I found myself thinking back over the birth a lot. We spent the day on holiday and made the best of celebrating you becoming 1. When you turned 2 we spent the day visiting family and I felt that it was your best Birthday yet. This year, as you turn 3, we are spending the day with lots of our family and making a celebration of the whole day. This morning we will begin with a special pancake breakfast, with Grandma, before we head over to a little tea party at Nanny & Grandad’s house. Auntie Jamie is even making you a wheat, gluten, dairy, soya and coconut free cake. That is no mean feat! I’m really excited for the day ahead but I wanted to start by sharing this post – Daisy, you are 3!
My beautiful daughter Daisy was born in March 2016. The first few days of her life were amazing, with her being a great sleeper and feeding really well. After that, on the 1st of April, she surprised us with her first bout of projectile vomit. Since then Daisy has been diagnosed with FPIES. FPIES is an allergy syndrome that causes Daisy to have projectile vomiting episodes when she is having a reaction to a food she is allergic to. Today I want to share a slightly light-hearted look at what it is like dealing with a poorly child – by talking about 5 places my child has vomited.
My lovely friend Donna, from What The Redhead Said, runs a weekly linky called Living Arrows. Parents are invited to share a photograph, every week on Monday, to show what their child has been up to in the past week. I started taking part every week from January 2017, as I wanted to document how much my daughter Daisy was changing each week. Now that I have completed a year of Living Arrows I’d love to share with you some of my favourite photographs from the past year. I hope you’ll enjoy looking back, and seeing how much Daisy has grown!
This was the first photograph that I shared in 2017 from Living Arrows 1/52. I was really excited to share a photograph every year but wasn’t sure if I would actually manage it!
