l_c4fb595c750cd2aed18a1ecfd359319e20 months ago Ellie Kara made her entrance into the world. Or more specifically, became my world. I remember those first few minutes, laying on the operating table, waiting and willing her to cry. The relief that spread through me.

Lately, I have written a few posts referring to the speed at which both Ellie and Kahlei have grown. And this evening I have looked at ‘old’ photos of Ellie, marvelling at the speed at which she developed, right before my eyes.

IMG_6032In 20 months Ellie has gone from a helpless babe to an independent, strong-willed, funny and amazing toddler.

From a colicky, windy baby who never slept to a (practically) perfect angel who now goes to bed, falls asleep on her own and stays asleep all night. I thought that would never happen.

In 20 months Ellie has developed her own personality, revelling in the discoveries life has to offer her. IMG_6034Exploring her world at every opportunity and learning all she can.

From those first few rolls on her play mat, to her first steps at almost 10 months to this running, twirling, stair-climbing, jumping, dancing ray of sunlight, I have been there for all of these amazing milestones and yet I still find it amazing to look at her now and see all that she can do and realise just how much she is taking in.

20 months of cuddles and kisses with my sweet baby girl. 20 months of learning, struggling, laughing, crying – for all involved.

Who know such a small amount of time could open your eyes, mind and world to so much.

The best 20 months of my life, so full of joy and light.
