Double Digits

I am a few days late posting this, but on Sunday my eldest daughter, Miss K, turned 10 years old!!! Wow!!!

Its so cliche, but those years have really flown by.

Here's a few pics of her over the years...

She is growing into a beautiful, young girl.
She is imaginative, loving, compassionate, empathetic.
She has an amazing sense of humour.
She is awesomely creative and expresses this with her painting, drawing, sewing and knitting.
She is a great Netball player.
She has developed her own sense of fashion recently which I really admire.
She has truly beautiful friends, which is testament to the beautiful friend she is.
She is a bright girl with an infectious personality.

The hardest part of celebrating this milestone birthday is that her Daddy, my hubby, couldn't be with us. She sobbed and sobbed and said she would give up birthday presents just to have Daddy there... my heart broke a little more.

But Daddy has promised a special time with him when we see him soon.

A special message for our girl,
Thank you our darling girl, for filling our home with your (loud) laughter, noise, mess and affection. You are a gift we treasure, a blessing we were told we'd never be able to have.You fill our lives with your love.
Love you sweetheart

We celebrated with a family lunch followed by a sleepover... Party pics to follow :)

Elizabeth said...

Awww - that made me cry! So hard to be missing Daddy at special moments like that :-(!

Hope she had a lovely day anyway!

Renee said...

Happy Birthday! Wow - those photos are gorgeous! I can hardly imagine that it won't be long and I'll be sitting here with a 10 year old - it is so scary how fast the time does go. A reminder to treasure every age and stage. Sorry that Daddy missed out - hopefully they get to do something really special together to make up for it.

Awww bless her.
What a sweetheart; and she is a stunner too.
Tell her I said she is getting prettier and prettier as she gets older ... and she was GORGEOUS to start with!

Awww, what a lovely montage of photos and a trip down memory lane for you.

So feel for you and her missing your hubbie and her Daddy. Won't be too long till you're all together and wishing you very many happy celebrations in the future.

She sounds like a very special girl indeed. Congratulations and Happy Birthday!
