Happy 16th birthday

This time sixteen years ago I was sitting in a hospital bed thanking God for the blessing of a second daughter.

With a mass of jet black hair she entered the world in stressful way and has continued along the same lines ha ha.

Eden is my shy one always hiding from the camera and hating being the centre of attention unlike her sisters and to be honest she didn’t really want me to write much on this post.

So keeping it short…

If she wasn’t so shy I will tell you she is an amazing young lady with more strength that she knows.

I would also tell you that she is naturally beautiful but I know she would be embarrassed.

I would then mention her kind caring heart but she would probably kill me.

So I’m simply going to say

Happy 16th Eden we love you to the moon, stars and back again. Xxxx

Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen

Sixteen years ago I became a mom for the first time. After an eventful labour I was presented with a beautiful baby girl.

 

You were so cute, so chunky and looked like a boxer, it was easy to see  in your spirit that you were going to take on the world.

Sixteen years later you are a beautiful young lady, so determined and strong. You see what you want and you go for it so whole heartily.

 

This year especially has been one where you have really grown both in height (finally) and strength.

You have made me so proud the way you have studied hard for your GCSE’s preparing yourself,  devising your own study timetable and canceling nights out. So grown up, so incredible. Whatever the results I am so proud of you. 

 

Watching you change and find your own personality has been a blessing for me. 

 

Your voice is amazing and every time I hear you sing I get goosepumps, never stop using your voice it a gift that needs to be shared.

 

 

 

Sometimes I miss the days when you were little you were my shadow and I loved it. I’m slowly learning to let go a little at a time. Hey I’m even getting used to the fact you have a boyfriend!

 

You may be celebrating your 16th today, but never forget you will always be my baby. My first born, my KK.

 

Happy Birthday sweet sixteen Kennedy.

 

 

Wishing you a life time full of love and happiness and never give up on your dreams as Dad and I are right behind you all the way.

 

 

 

 

P.S When did i get old enough to have a sixteen year old daughter.
