I can not believe that you are now twelve year's old, almost a teenager! I still remember the day that you were born like it was yesterday and it does not seem that long ago since you were my little baby girl. Even though you are growing up and you are almost as tall as me now you will always be my baby girl and even though you now have a brother and a sister I still love you as much as I always did, in fact I love you more and more every day.
So much has happened in your twelve years of life, you turned one and had a tea party and a Winnie the pooh cake. Aged two you were potty trained by your second birthday and you had another tea party for your birthday and got a bike, sadly when you were two you lost your nana ( my mum) who loved you so much, more then you could ever know as you were her world. Aged three you started nursery and you loved it so much. Aged four you had a big party at soft play with all your friends and we went to Disneyland Paris which you loved. Aged five you started big school and made lots of friends and were Lazy town mad, we went to see them and you went dressed as Stephanie with a bright pink wig on. Aged six you were Disney princess and Barbie mad and that's all you wanted for christmas. Aged seven we had lots of lovely days out and we started going to music concerts together as mammy use to treat you when I got paid from work. Aged eight we went to Scarbrough and you met Lee for the first time and he soon became like a dad to you. Aged nine we went on holiday and you found out you were going to be a big sister and were so excited. Aged ten you became a big sister to Sophia and loved her as soon as you seen her and you also went back to Disneyland Paris with the school. Aged eleven you went to Spain and you left primary school and started secondary school and you also became a big sister again to your little brother Jacob.
I remember so much of your childhood and we have so many lovely photos to look back on in years to come, in a way I wish I had of started blogging sooner so that I could have recorded your childhood for you to look back on and so you could see how much I loved you and remember all the good times we have had over the years.
And now you are twelve and we had a lovely time celebrating your birthday, it was the first year you have never asked for toys instead you wanted perfume, hair straighteners, and jewellery. There was no soft play party to organise either as you are a big girl now so we went to Frankie and Benny's (your favourite) on your birthday for tea and you also had a giant cupcake cake. Then the next day you went for a Indian meal with your granddad , then on the Saturday you went to get your nails painted and then to Frankie and Benny's (again) with your friends.
You have changed so much this year, you have got so much taller and you no longer play with toys anymore you prefer to paint your nails and watch videos of Zoella on You Tube. You go to and from school on your own and sometimes you go out places with your friends. I know you get sick of me nagging you to be safe when you are out but it is only because I love and care about you so much. I worry more about you now that you are older then I did when you were small. Yes I nag you to do your homework, tidy your bedroom and tell you off for being cheeky. But that's what us mums are here for to try and guide you through life and I only do it because I care and want what is best for you.
I hope that you have a fantastic year and enjoy every moment of being twelve years old, I am so proud to call you my daughter and I love you lots and I don't want you to ever forget that.
