NaBloPoMo #30. Grand Finale

OK Here is my NaBloPoMo Finale!!!!! My last daily post for November!!!! Then the pressure is off. (What is the prize again for doing this??????)


Firstly, here she is aged 10. That's right, only 10. Just before our wedding two years ago.
(wow seems longer than that).And a year later aged 11 with her Dad and I at her Year 6 Graduation.

Phew!!!! And then of course you've seen her since then, growing like a weed and becoming more and more beautiful as the days go by.So that's our journey. From Birth to 12 in 30 days. I am so proud of my gorgeous daughter. Not just because she's a stunner, but because of the person she is too. She's loving and thoughtful, vivacious, hilarious, a good friend, a conscientious student and a reluctant piano practiser!!! She is perceptive about people. She instinctively knows how to make someone feel better. She is well mannered (mostly) and after an explosion of temper (yes, she is mercurial too) she is quick to apologise. We have a few years of rocky roads ahead of us to navigate but I know she is a great person and together with her Dad, her step dad and the rest of her extended family, grandparents, aunts and friends, (and a fair measure of Grace) we will hopefully get her through the tough teenage stuff.

I love you Baby Angel.

I so enjoy watching my girls grow but to think that they will one day be 10 is unfathomable. Your Baby Angel is a doll.

You made it through the month! Congrats!
It has truly been a joy to watch your girl grow up. so many special memories you've shared with us! I have confidence she will weather the teen years just fine, with you at her side brandishing the Flaming Sword!

Your daughter is beautiful, and she looks just like you.

To answer your question at my place. Apparently I live in a cave because I don't know about Santa's vocabulary being limited. Geez!

JustJessie said...

Wow. She is beautiful (and she does not look twelve!). It's great that the two of you have such a good relationship.

Thanks so much you guuuuuyzzzz!!!

I have thoroughly enjoyed this self indulgence but to know that others have enjoyed the journey too is a great feeling. Kind of a sharing thing...

I have also enjoyed getting to all your NaBloPoMo sites (when I could)! Job well done all round guys!!!!

Nicely done - I've enjoyed reading along and getting to know your site! Good luck with the teenage years, I suspect that those are going to be hard. Thank god I've got a dozen or so to go before we get there.

I appreciate the well thought out comments that you left on my site. I like a good argument and often play devil's advocate, so I hope that I haven't offended you with my post on fathers.

All the best,

Chris
