It is almost midnight here and I am reminiscing about Molly’s birth. Around this time 4 years ago I was being wheeled to theatre for an emergency C section after a non-reassuring ECG.

Needless to say he needed his bath before dinner that night!

This beautiful girl had her 4th birthday party last Sunday and we were lucky enough to be invited.

Happy Birthday Sophie

It was a fairies and superheroes party. Molly was more than happy to don her best fairy wings in the spirit of celebration.

So sweet

A quiet moment

Fairy deep in thought

Such a pretty fairy, but this is what happens when you ask her to smile!
