How does time go so fast?
Seven years ago we welcomed our beautiful baby girl into the world.
Minx was born at home with her Daddy and Granny (and two fantastic midwives) at my side and the rest of her grandparents sitting downstairs!!!
The homebirth was planned - the audience was not...it just happened that way!
When my Father-in-Law commented on the fact that I had made a bit of noise whilst giving birth (and heck it really was only a bit of noise - I'm no screamer!) I suggested he try weeing an apple through his old chap without aneasthetic and see if he could keep quiet!!!!
Just sixteen and a half months after our beautiful little boy was born we completed our family with a perfect little girl.
She shares her name with her Granny.
I don't go for the whole naming children after relatives thing but somehow the shortened version of Granny's name was just right. (Granny was not called Minxie, by the way.)
As you may already have guessed, Minx is madam's 'stage name'!!
The first two pictures are within 20 minutes of birth,with my cheerleader, Granny :)
We called her 'the badge' because she would snuggle on your shoulder and just stay there - hands free!!
Sausage Monster does not remember a time without 'Missus'.
She's the funniest, sunniest, sweetest little girl.
She's quirky, old-fashioned, twinkly-eyed, kind and sweet natured, exquisite, loving and a little too 'knowing' for her age!
Seven, going on 14.
You and your Granny just 'knew' each other. You connected. I do so wish she was still here to see the wonderful young lady you are becoming every day. She would be so proud of you, little woman.
Happy Birthday Minx - we love you more than mere words can say :)
