OMG I can't believe Amber is 8 today - hard to believe she's still 7 hours from being born - 8 years ago today! Yep it took 27 long hours to get my perfect little princess, and now she's growing up so fast! Wow, where did the time go? Well I'm sure making the most of it while she still thinks I'm cool (sometimes), while she still wants to spend time with me, and while she still loves dressing up in costumes, playing with toys, loving Disney Princessses, puppies, Littlest Petshop bobble-heads and watching cartoons half the day in her PJs! Today I've sent cupcakes to school - they're pink and purple, with pink icing and Princess coloured candies on the top. Amber also gets to contribute to assembly this morning, so I'm going up to see that. Then the party is tomorrow - it's the talk of the class! The first thing Amber said this morning (while telling me to get out of bed!) was "Do you think Sophia will know it's my birthday - will she say "happy birthday big sister!?" Turns out Sophia put on a beautiful big smile, and did babble something to her sister for her special day!Happy birthday my sweet princess, may all your wishes come true, and you have a truly magical birthday. All our love, Mummy, Daddy, Sophia & Piglet xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Here's a slide show of some of my favourite photos of Amber from when she was born until now - there's a few, so click on the slide above to go to full screen. She's such a character and so much fun to take photos of!!! Some of the photos are scanned directly from my early scrapbooks (and not very clear) but you get the idea.
