We're not all in the same boat, some of us struggle to even get in the boat!

My precious girl arrived on this earth five years ago today – Wordless Wednesday

51 Comments

I shed more than a few tears as I put this post together.

Five years ago today, at about 3pm, my gorgeous girl started her journey on this earth.

Her birth was peaceful, she is amazing and I can’t imagine my life without her.

When she tells me she loves me I tell her ‘I love you more’, she then says “I love you the most’.

I wish I could go back in time and just cuddle a baby version of her one more time….

Just hours old

Battling chronic reflux, at six weeks the only way to get her to sleep for more than 20 minutes during the day was to put her on her tummy! I watched her the WHOLE time.

She has never loved food, but I persisted because having something solid in her tummy helped settle her tummy after she vomited about 15 times a day.

She had a taste for newspapers, just like her mum

If you’re anything like me there are days when you’ve had enough of battling with young children, the tantrums, the fights, the questions – but we have such an important role to play.

We grew them inside our bodies for nine months, and now for our lifetime we must nurture their souls, teach them the ways of the world and most importantly give them unconditional love.

Happy birthday princess – I love you to the moon and back!

I'm a mum to three, write from home and I rarely cook, craft or clean but admire those who do. I try to live by the mantra that there's no point in worrying about something that might not happen! Be warned this is not a fluffy, sweet mummy blog, rather a place where you can cringe, laugh and be shocked at my brutally honest take on my life.

  11. And a big congrats to you as the mum who also was reborn five years ago. Lovely photos, the baby ones are totally edible.

  12. Happy birthday to her. March is a good month for 5 year olds-my son celebrated his earlier in the month. She looks like she had a great day

  13. Wonderful photos. She is just beautiful. Goes to fast doesn’t it.

  14. Beautiful post Emily. Ah, they grow so fast. I have a 5 yo party coming up soon too. Where does the time go? Your little one is a cutie 🙂

  15. Hey my little girl would only EVER sleep on her tummy. She screamed any other way. I had so many bossy grannies trying to tell me how bad it was for the baby when I took her out in the pram like that – what could I say except “Yes, I know they’re not supposed to lie on their tummy because of SIDS but she hasn’t read the book yet!”

    • Ditto Janet, mine ALL slept on their tummies from when they had enough head strength, they wouldn’t sleep any other way. Much to everyone’s disgust and tsk tsk, but I just tuned them out! Love what you said to all those ‘know it alls” xx

  16. she is just adorable. She sure was one cue little bubba. My youngest will be five in a couple of weeks. Such a fabulous age.

  17. oooh!!!! We just watched her grow up in a flash!!!! Love the photos!! Happy Birthday – my daughter is 4 in August.. no idea where the time went!

  18. Oh what gorgeous pics!!! I
    Happy Birthday to your precious little girl:)
    love being a mum too, my children are everything xx

  19. What a lovely story told by your photos. Happy birthday to your little one.

  20. How lovely that you have taken the time to look back and reflect on all your wonderful memories together! Such beautiful piccies! Hope she has had a wonderful wonderful day!

  21. Oh wow I loved this walk back down memory lane. It’s funny I can see all members of your family in her at different ages x

  22. I just did a search on WordPress on 5th Birthday, and came across your post. How is this for coincidence. My little girl was born on the 27th, just after 3PM. She suffered from relux, and would not sleep during the day, if we were lucky, 20 minutes, but on meds she did sleep well during the night. She was a very fussy eater (only very recently started eating well). At 2 years she had almost no hair, just a few curls.

    • Wow that is a coincidence, my daughter also suffered from chronic reflux and once on medication did sleep at night, in an elevated cot, but RARELY during the day, nice to ‘meet’ you. Emily

  23. She is adorable and oh what a cutie pie bubba.

  24. She is a gorgeous girl Em, looking so grown up at 5 🙂

  25. Amazing to take that journey in photos with you from birth to now! It seems like your birthday too! 🙂

  26. New life and five year old life are both a thing to behold. How precious are these little babes in our lives.

    Have a great Easter
    Carolyn
