Life is an adventure of the heart, an adventure into love

Birthday week!

Amber's 4th birthday finally arrived after months of her pointing out things in shops and saying "Can I have that for my 4 birthday?!" Amber asked for a pink wedding cake with a mermaid on top as her birthday cake at which point I gulped, but it actually turned out quite sweet thanks to team Mum-ma and Dada! I would have quite liked to have thrown a huge party for her, but it just didn't feel right to do that this year, so we settled for a small tea party just for her and her best friend and that was enough. I've had a sort of mantra since Jireh was born, which pops into my head when I think things like 'Maybe I'll make some chocolate brownies as well as scones' or 'Maybe we'll throw a huge party for all her nursery friends' and the mantra is 'Pick your battles'. Coz some things just aren't worth the extra effort when what you have is enough already.

Amber enjoyed shooting her friend with the bubble gun just a little too much!

I can't believe my little girl is four. It has been such a privilege and a delight to be her Mummy and to watch her grow more and more freely her. She's truly special.

Amber from 0 to 4!

That's all folks, except to say:

...and her Mummy for all of your lovely birthday love and wishes!

  1. She's a special little lady and beautiful like her mummy. Amazing how quickly she's grown. Glad she had a happy birthday... the cake looked amazing! xx
