A note to my darlings, my mini monsters...
The New Year has brought with it a big change...Elsie you start preschool.
I'm not crying I promise. 2016 was the year you went from toddler to little person with the most amount of sass ever known from a 3 year old! Its the year your personality came through, as you stopped copying everything that everyone else was doing and became your own person. The year you became our very own Disney Princess, or maybe Spidermam depending on your mood! And we cant talk about the last year without mentioning your love for Halloween, as we trawled shops every day to look at the spooky goodies on offer! Pre-school, I know will bring big change, and I will so miss my little buddy, but it's time to let you out into the big world, to develop your speech, although you have come so far the last few weeks, to learn to have some patience, and to make lots of new friends.
Evie 2016, you started school, and made so so so many new friends. It was the year you blossomed from a shy 'hide behind mummy's legs' girl and came out from behind my legs and smashed all sorts of new things from riding your bike, reading and writing to the more obscure things like swinging upside down on a trapeze! Whatever your do you do it with a smile and laughter and if you fall? You get back up and try again. OK, you may have a little cry, but once your are over it you are ready to give it another go and you are gonna make sure you ain't gonna fall again!
Jenson, your 2016, was the year you turned comedian, as you made everyone howl with laughter at the funny things you did! Its the year he got a little braver nailing riding your bike with no stabilizers on your first try....but then lost a little braveness and became a bag of nerves for school shows! Its the year you became the best big brother and for the first time since I remember your dream of being a rock star was replaced with being a train driver, In 2017 may your braveness make a comeback as you continue to make us laugh and carry on being the best big brother you can.
