cake made by me inspired by Amelie’s drawing
I love the way you call me mamma,
I love that you are so sensitive,
I love your imagination,
I love your creativity,
 drawing by Amelie, embroidery by me

I love that you sometimes know things that I don’t,
I love that you love to take photos & “movies” with my phone,
I love that you can read your own birthday cards,
I love that you will be able to read this,
I love that you still hold my hand when we walk to school,
I love your never ending energy,
I love that you can be the most caring big sister,
I love that you are the sweetest big cousin,
I love your sweet smile,
I love your nervous smile,
 refashioned skirt, panel made by me
I love how much you love me..always,
I love that you can now reach and help me hang the clothes,
I love your innocent shyness,
I love that you enjoy school,
I love that you love to read,
I love it when you make me pictures and write “Love mum” on them
 these two made by me

I love that you are a little monkey on the monkey bars

I love that you are a little bit cheeky
I love your witty sense of humour


You know I just love you the moon and back… 50 million times and I especially love that I am your mama

Happy birthday, baby girl ♥
