Happy 1st Birthday Isabelle!

Dearest Isabelle 

How is it possible you have been in our life for 52 weeks already, 365 whole days since we first met you, held you, and fell in love with you. I can’t believe you’ve been with us a whole year already, I was always warned that the first year goes fast, but I never imagined it would be this fast. I remember the first time we saw your perfect little face, you looked so cute and your skin was absolutely flawless. I remember thinking you looked just like your big sister and thanking my stars that I was lucky enough to have another beautiful, healthy baby girl. I still can’t believe I’m a mama of two and feel incredibly lucky to have you in my life. 

I’m so glad I’ve been able to be there with you, to watch you hit all your milestones as the days have passed. I have to say your a lot lazier than your sister, and way more feisty. I’m guessing your just content with making her do everything for you, and you’ll do it when you're ready. All that aside I cannot put into words how proud both your daddy and I are of you. You're the happiest little girl I know, as soon as you wake up your full of smiles and giggles. I tried really hard to capture as many of your milestones on camera as I could, in the hopes of being able to show you them when you're bigger.

Although you're a complete daddies girl, I love the relationship we have and I hope it never changes. When daddy’s at work and sissy is at pre-school - I treasure the little moments we get together, just the two of us. I hope that as you grow, you still let me be there for you, and I hope to be with you for all your milestones to come. No matter what you set out to do in life, I hope you find happiness, and you know that you are always loved. 

One of the best things about having you is how stubborn, and determined you are. You never give up when you have your mind set on doing something. I admire that about you and hope that you never lose that determination. I love how strong your bond is with your daddy, and hope that you two always share that close connection. I hope that your daddy and I, make you proud, and make you happy. I hope that we can teach you to love and be kind. To be your own person and fiercely independent. To teach you manners, and courtesy, but most of all - I hope to teach you how important it is to show the people you care about you love them. 

You are incredibly lucky to be surrounded by people who absolutely adore you. It’s safe to say that cheeky little smile of yours is winning hearts meaning you got spoilt on your birthday. You got so many lovely gifts, and I’m so thankful for everyone who spoilt you. I hope that as you grow bigger you are always surrounded by love, happiness and supportive people.

Even though this year has flown by, I wouldn’t have changed a single moment of it. I am so proud of you, how much you’ve grown and how much you have learnt. I am so unbelievably grateful to have you in our lives. You make me happier than you will ever know, and are everything I have ever dreamed of. Being your mama is one of the greatest privileges, I don’t know how many times throughout the day I have stopped to just watch you play with your sister, or looked over at you and thought ‘she is really ours’.

I’m so thankful to be your mama, to spend my days with you, watching you turn into the person you are. Thank you for being you, for being happy, feisty, stubborn, beautiful, and our daughter. As you turn one, I want you to remember that no matter how big you get, wherever you go, or whoever you turn out to be, both me and your daddy will love you, completely and unconditionally.

Happy birthday little Squishbug. 

I love you always.
Mama x
