Four years ago today, my little fairy princess arrived. All 2.5kg of her, eyes wide open, mouth gaping but not making a sound. A perfect, tiny bundle.

It's been quite a journey these past four years. Tears (Lil-lil's and mine), lots of laughter and even more love – oh so much love. I can't quite believe that that teeny tiny bub is now a lanky preschooler, towering over her ballet classmates. How did that happen? Where has the time gone? It feels like just a couple of months ago that I wrote this post on her third birthday. I wish that I could bottle this time.

I feel incredibly blessed to have Lil-lil in my life. She's everything that I would like to be myself – clever, beautiful, funny and kind. Each day she grows up just a little more and is a little more special. She loves anything glittery, sparkly, pink or purple. She loves adventure. She loves to help people. She wants to be a princess or ambulance driver when she grows up, she's not quite sure – there's plenty of time to work that out Lil-lil.

Happy birthday, my fairy princess. I love you so much, more than I thought possible. The joy you bring into our lives and those of all who know you is more precious than gold. I hope you have the most wonderful day and that life brings you all that you deserve. Just know that your dad, Goosey and I love you, Lil-lil!
