Miss Maymay

Tomorrow is Mother's Day here in New Zealand... and it is also Miss 5's birthday - she will be turning 6 years old!

So today I found myself looking back at photographs, and remembering that Mother's Day nearly 6 years ago when I gave birth to my first baby girl.  

This precious girl was born with a heap of hair... so much hair that I really didn't know what to do with it all.  For a moment I thought I had given birth to an Eskimo baby.  She is kind and gentle... very sensitive and prone to crying when things don't quite go how they were planned to.  She loves cuddles (practically lives on someones knee) and loves animals (sigh.. just like her Dad).  She's a bit of a tom-boy - has knocked both of her front teeth out on different occasions (see here for one of them) yet loves girly things too.

She is growing and maturing into the most beautiful and mature young lady... and I am super proud of her and love her to bits!

Here are a few pics from the past up to the present...








 Love you lots Miss Maymay.

  8. Omigosh! I have never seen a BLONDE bubba with that much hair! I've seen plenty of dark-haired (polynesian) bubs, but WOW!

    Happy Birthday Miss May, from your new friend Miss Fab.
