How did we get here so super fast, a decade having passed since I birthed our first child, our beautiful Ella. I can no longer really remember what it was like before she was here with us. I have plenty of memories of course, but the feeling of being without her, or being unaware of her, I can't recall that at all.
She's a serious child, at times, but has a crazy silly sense of humour as well. She's great at silly voices and as many male mates have funny discourses using "in the know" language, she does the same with her dad.
Super creative, losing herself in her drawing for hours at a time, she is a talented young woman who I hope never loses her passion for making.
Still sensitive and easily wounded she has found ways to protect her heart more than she did in younger years, but has also now managed to surround herself with gorgeous young friends who are as similarly kind and gentle as she.
Happy 10th Birthday Ella. We love you so xxx
