My Gorgeous Holly,
I don’t want to write this letter, because I don’t want to admit that you are three years old. I’m not ready. I’m not ready for my baby, my last born to be three.
But three you are. As I sit and write this my mind is just whirling about all the things that you are and all the things that you mean to me. I can’t keep up and get it all out into words.
You are just my perfect little girl. You came out smiling and you haven’t stopped since. You are my cheeky little girl that makes me laugh every single day. You bring the fun into our lives. I simply adore you.
I must say to daddy every single day how I love to watch you play. You will sit for hours playing with your Peppa Pig toys, or rescuing people in adventure bay as you play Paw Patrol. The minute we arrive home you are straight to your toys and it’s lovely to watch.
I think your favourite thing to do is play in the sand pit. You adore sand and will spend ages making me cakes from sand. You are at your happiest sat in the sand. I can’t wait for us to go on holiday and spend hours on the beach.
The only thing you are a pickle about is your food. You are really good at eating breakfast and lunch, but when it comes to dinner you can be a little monkey. But as time goes on, I’m wondering if you are just even more like me and actually just not that hungry.
You really are a mini mummy. You look like me, you play like I did as a child, you have so much of me in you it freaks me out sometimes. But one thing that you are like your daddy, is you are chilled out like him. Nothing seems to phase you. Even when I say ‘no’ to something or you get upset over something it literally happens for seconds and then you snap out of it.
Your sister! You adore Alice, you maybe chalk and cheese when it comes to both looks and personality. But you are the best of friends and you get on so well. It makes my heart melt when I see you two together, you just want to be with Alice all the time. Thankfully she wants you too.
Yes, you squabble like only siblings can, but you make up straight away. You always say sorry, sometimes even unprompted.
You were at the front of the queue when they were handing out the cuteness. If there is one word that is always used when people talk about you, it’s ‘cute’. I don’t know what it is about you, is it your cheeky smile, the way you walk around without a care in the world with your curls bouncing on your shoulders? I can’t quite put my finger on the one thing. but you have it in bucket loads.
Everyday you give me the best hugs and kisses and it makes me smile when I think back to a time where I wasn’t sure if you were going to be an overly affectionate person. There was a time I had to work hard for a cuddle, but I think it was because you were just too busy playing to stop for one. Because you are just so cuddly and I love it. You give the real bear hugs and I never want to let you go.
My gorgeous girl on the day that you turn three. You are the star in my life, you shine so brightly and today is your day to shine. It is all about you!
Lots of love
