This is mostly for friends and family who read this blog, but I took some photos of the Minx wearing the beautiful dress her godmother gave her for her birthday and I thought you might like to see how grown up she has become.
She has also become immensely chatty and opinionated (have no idea where she gets that from); is very sociable, affectionate and friendly; has a definite, though rather slapstick, sense of humour; has managed to grow enough hair to warrant the use of a hairclip (though she never actually keeps one in for more than thirty seconds) and has become most decidedly pesky. She is also showing signs of having inherited her maternal grandfather’s nose (and believe me that’s not a good thing).
I feel sad sometimes that I’ll never see my baby again, but I am enjoying my little girl so much more. I just wish she hadn’t turned into a teenager quite so quickly.
