happy birthday lola

Eleven!! It’s hard to believe my first born is Eleven already, and only two years away from being a teenager {yikes!}. Eleven years ago I became a Mama, something that I never thought I wanted. From the moment she was in my arms, I knew it was the right path for me. She was the perfect first baby, she ate, she slept, she was happy and easy to look after. It’s amazing to see them grow up before your eyes, and become a person all of their own. The hardest part of motherhood is letting them spread their wings {a little at a time}.

I’m not sure what we have planned today – hoping for a day out, but the where depends a little on the weather!! There is definitely cake on the menu though! We’ll have a second celebration tomorrow with friends at our home ed group {more cake yay!!} and on Saturday she is taking some friends to the cinema {watching Frozen, again} and for some shopping after.

We hope you have a fantastic day Lola – we love you!!

    Happy Birthday Lola! My daughter will be 18 soon, where does the time go! I agree, letting them spread their wings is hard, and so is letting them make their own mistakes, but it’s all part of the wonderful journey of watching them grow x

    Cake and Frozen sounds like the perfect birthday! Very scary to think that she is only two years away from being a teenager – where do the years go?

    Wow! She a tween or preteen or whatever they’re calling it now. So, so exciting and I’ll bet it’s flown by like nothing.

    I do think 11 is a major milestone. Time to go to High School! She looks very grown up and read for what the world has to offer her. Hope she had a lovely day. x

    Happy Birthday Lola!! Thats amazing, I can’t believe my little man is going to be four this year – time really does fly. I too never thought I wanted kids and now I cannot imagine a more enriched and fulfilling life

    Gosh it goes so fast doesn’t it…I know that’s such a cliche but it really does speed along. My oldest is nearly 8 and that make me want to silently weep!! I hope she has a lovely birthday!
