Another month has just flown on by but this has been a bit of a quiet one. This month you and daddy took a trip to the Arboretum in Nottingham whilst I headed off to a tattoo studio around the corner. I’ve always been a huge fan of tattoos, and have some, but I got all of them on a whim and they mean nothing to me. I decided that I wanted to get a cover-up for one of them now based around a purple Lotus flower. I decided on the Lotus flower after reading around as some people think of the Lotus as a miracle flower because it starts out under the thick mud, works its way through all of that and then pushes up through the water to bloom on the surface. It takes a lot for the Lotus to be able to be seen and although we didn’t have it nearly as hard as we could have done to get you, it was still a massively emotional rollercoaster for us and I’ll always think of you as our miracle.
You have been talking non-stop about the holiday that we are heading on next month as you are really excited to be living with Nana Sue and Jess for a week so hopefully we will all have fun together! You have also been talking about what you want for Christmas and you have decided on a purple bike – we will have to see what Santa can do about that.
Finally, you have decided that you really, reallllllly want to go to school! We’ve been doing some alphabet worksheets at home which are a bit like school work and you now can’t wait to go and ask about it all the time, you also watch the kids walking to school from your window in the morning which is adorable but I so wish that you’d slow down a bit – time just seems to be melting away and you’ll be heading to school off before I know it … my little bestie will be off all day, learning and making new friends. I’m going to miss you being my little shadow.
Love you xoxox
