We’ve been a little quiet online recently because a very special event. On Sunday, it was Holly’s tenth birthday!
Happy Birthday, Holly!
It was quite a big year for us, being the first year of double-digit birthdays. To celebrate, Holly finally got her ears pierced (you can’t see them in this photo as her hair’s over them!). She had been asking us for years as most of her friends had had them done but we agreed on 10 because of all the work involved in keeping them clean and safe. At least she had them done a year earlier than her mum (she’s terribly competitive!).
It’s strange to think of Holly as 10. I never really became emotional when she started nursery or school but this year has really hit me as her mum. This is her ten years ago, give or take a month! (Sorry it’s a Word document – my laptops have died at the rate of nearly one a year and in the process have lost many of my digital files.)
She’s no longer in the little years, and I guess I am realising how quickly she’s growing up. In 10 more years, where will she be?!
In the meantime, a very happy birthday to my not-so-little girl.
