My Three Little Birds: Part 3
My first little bird arrived after 25 hours of labour.
And she was worth every push and groan and frustrated cry that came from me.
I had wanted a baby for as long as I can remember. Actually I can tell you that I was in highschool when I first thought about what my child would be like.
I always thought my first baby would be a girl and I was right (actually I knew what they all were in my heart without finding out the sex).
I just knew.
I wondered would she have long hair as I did when I was a child, and what colour would her eyes be?
Would she look like me? And would she share her love of dancing as I had?
I wrote this for her:-
"My darling, you made me a mother.
I dreamed of you and wanted you for so long...I knew you were somewhere waiting to come to me..you are everything I yearned for and the minute you were put in my arms and I looked at your face, I knew you.
I really knew you...It was almost as if we'd met before...all these years I had waited to have a child, and as I looked at your beautiful face, I knew there and then that I would give my life for you."
She is so much like me, my husband often comments (when her and I are arguing - and yes we do!) that "Wow Michelle, it's like looking in a mirror......")
It scares me how much she is like me, her personality and the way she thinks things through, that is why I think sometimes we clash.....
I'm basically fighting with myself!
My mirror twin!
She is such a good little girl, so helpful and kind and caring.
My little doll. A beautiful, smart and talented little bird..
She loves fashion. I love taking her shopping, just the two of us, and we love trying on clothes, and jewellery and doing girlie stuff ♥
We have another date soon to watch the new Twilight movie. I think she wants me to wear a Team Jacob tshirt.
For her, I'd do anything....
I also think she's smarter than me. Already. No seriously...
And she can sing and dance and act and hopefully she'll become famous and I can finally have my overseas holiday I'm craving...
The final word must go to The Hubbster who said to Miss D recently " You will make a very fine lawyer one day because you're very good at arguing"...
