Six, the sweetest thing

Today my little Lil turns six.

It's been a big year for my pretty princess. She's started school not once, but twice and done so well with the massive amount of change. Starting school, settling in and making herself a part of her Sydney school made me so proud. She breezed through it. Starting again on the other side of the globe has been a little trickier, but she's made me so proud again as she tries, she picks herself up and puts on a smile and then tries again each day.

She's so grown up and insightful and thoughtful. She's funny. She's kind. More than anything when I think of Lil, I think 'sweet'. She's just about the sweetest thing I know.

At six, she loves drawing, writing and painting. She loves to sing and to dance. She also loves to swim. She's a caring sister to Goosey and Darbs. She can eat bowls and bowls of spaghetti bolognese.

I don't think I've ever been prouder of my girl than I am right now.

Happy birthday, Lil. You bring us all such incredible joy.

  4. Awww Happy Birthday to your darling Lil :) She's a remarkable little lady, to take on the challenges of this year so well. And I think sweet is quite possibly the nicest possible description there can be of a little girl. Hope she had a lovely day celebrating.
    And well done Mama on six years of Mamahood, it's a BIG deal, definitely worth downing a few glasses of bubbly over ;) xoxo
