667


Our babe celebrates her birthday today and she's oh so proud to be 4.

This gorgeous blondey of ours, who can find things a little more challenging than others, who needs more space, more time, more quiet. A little girl who loves her family so very much.

Today we're all together and the special people in her life will visit for cake. At the last moment she decided that she would like a party, only a small one, so a party she will have. In the park, low key, lots of fuss, but in a very understated non look at her way, as she likes.
Happy Birthday baby.

Oh Victoria, little Leila is positively beaming! It's amazing how all that joy, albeit sometimes short lived, is worth all the ups and downs. Leila's happiness is felt so intensely and from so deep within in this gorgeous photo.
Happy Birthday Leila and congratulations on making the big grown-up decision of having a 'party'.
Happy new year to you all. May it be filled with wonderful days and memories like today.

Leila sounds a lot like our blonde-haired four year old.

I'm sure she had a lovely day, she certainly looks happy
