Elodie's 2nd birthday was such a hot day, and we spent it in Scarborough feeding the ducks, having ice cream on the beach and riding the open top bus. Definitely my favourite of her birthday's so far... it was just lovely. By this age she was such a cheeky little monkey, but gorgeous enough to get away with any mischief!
Exactly a year ago, Elodie's 3rd birthday. Her Daddy had to go to uni, so we didn't really do anything to celebrate, other than having a tea party at home with a big Curious George cake. This was the first year where she had been really excited to open her presents, so we just had a fun day playing with her new toys... I can't believe this was a year ago.
And this is how she is now (this photo was taken yesterday) my grown up little four year old. I still think of her as tiny, but when I look at how much she has changed over the four years it makes me really emotional and proud. She's such a bubbly, confident little girl - nothing like I was, I was really quiet and shy, but Elodie is everyone's friend. She can spell her own name, count to 20, she knows the words to most Olly Murs songs and she can work the laptop and iPhone better than I can!
For this birthday she got a new bike, which she has been asking for, for so long, a My Little Pony cake, some new clothes and lots of games, books and toys.
I might share a few photos of her birthday in the next few days... let me know if you would like to see more of Elodie on here.
