LETTER FROM A MOTHER TO A DAUGHTER:

“My dear girl, the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through.

If when we talk, I repeat the same thing a thousand times, don’t interrupt to say: “You said the same thing a minute ago”… Just listen, please. Try to remember the times when you were little and I would read the same story night after night until you would fall asleep.

When I don’t want to take a bath, don’t be mad and don’t embarrass me. Remember when I had to run after you making excuses and trying to get you to take a shower when you were just a girl?

When you see how ignorant I am when it comes to new technology, give me the time to learn and don’t look at me that way… remember, honey, I patiently taught you how to do many things like eating appropriately, getting dressed, combing your hair and dealing with life’s issues every day… the day you see I’m getting old, I ask you to please be patient, but most of all, try to understand what I’m going through.

If I occasionally lose track of what we’re talking about, give me the time to remember, and if I can’t, don’t be nervous, impatient or arrogant. Just know in your heart that the most important thing for me is to be with you.

And when my old, tired legs don’t let me move as quickly as before, give me your hand the same way that I offered mine to you when you first walked.

When those days come, don’t feel sad… just be with me, and understand me while I get to the end of my life with love.

I’ll cherish and thank you for the gift of time and joy we shared. With a big smile and the huge love I’ve always had for you, I just want to say, I love you… my darling daughter.”

- Unknown,

This is absolutely beautiful, and brought tears to my eyes. Definitely something I would want Britney to read!

Dear Britney!

I’m Britney Spears fan for 14 years. I was only 4 years old and I was waiting on TV for Baby One More Time all day. I grow up with her songs, her life, her words, her happiness, her sadness…

I’m using the word fan cuz Army is just new. And I’m not used to it. 

I feel like she is someone from my family. She lives away and I never met her because of this. 

I can’t explain how much I love her. There is another famous people I’m fan of but She is different…

Now I’m 18 years old girl and she helped me to find myself. This means a lot for me…

I hope she see this…

Dear Britney,

The things I love about you

The moments and memories I will forever treasure

I Love how when you wake up in the morning, you sit up, scratch the cot and call “Hewo”

I Love how after I have dressed you for school and begin to get ready myself you follow me around and sit quietly by me untill we are ready to leave the house

I Love how when I pick you up from school you run to me with outstretched arms

I Love how when you drinking your milo you stand by my legs and tickle me while you sip away

I Love how when you pick up speed in your walking you lift up your shoulders as if you’re about to take off

I Love how you have these long blabbering conversations with me that seem so interesting to you but I have no clue what you’re saying

I Love supper and breakfast feeding time when you have a spoonfull, runaway and then return for your next spoon full

I Love how you shreek with laughter when you pinch my cheek and i yell “owee”

I Love how you surprise me with open mouth slobbery kisses

I Love how you hear the landline phone ring when you are on the opposite side of the room and put your hand to your ear and answer “Hewo”

I Love how when you hear music you bob up and down to it without fail

I Love the look on your face after a bath and you’re laying down watching me cream you up

I Love laying on the bed and having you climb up and down me like a jungle gym

I Love putting you to bed, holding you in my arms, your head on my shoulder and your arm around my neck, I sing to you untill I feel your grip tightly loosen

I Love giving you one last kiss while you’re asleep in my arms before laying you down in your cot.

I am your mama, you are my child and my best friend, I will love you forever and always. Thank you for being you and for entering my life. And thank you for all the moments and memories that  I will forever treasure!

Dear Britney

Mommy loves you and you are slowly starting to show your love in return. You hold my head when I kiss you or nuzzle you, you glaldy give me open mouth, slobbery kisses when I request them and you are so chuffed when I thank you for them. You are always following me around the house, wherever I go I can hear that “pitter patter” right behind me and when I stop walking you climb up my legs and just stand there leaning on me patiently waiting for some attention. We share everything, whatever I am eating or drinking you make sure you get a piece or sip of it too, so mommy is pretty limited to what she can eat in front of you. You are still so intelligent and learning every day. You love the camera and you are well aware of when I am photographing you, you point to everything and say “de” you give me everything you get into your hands and say “de”. You are cruising now and anything that is able to assist you in cruising you are up and holding onto it crabbing walking your way to wherever it is you need to go. (bear in mind that you are only 10 months old) 

I could literally sit and write the longest post boasting about all that you can do, how beautiful you are, what a sweetheart you are, how funny you are and how smart and cheeky you are but I don’t want to bore you too much… after all, I have all the pics and videos to prove to you one day… I just need you to know that I truly, madly and deeply love you, I am SO proud of you and I want you to know that everything you do goes noticed so keep loving life, smiling, learning and loving me my lil B because you have made me the happiest mama alive!

Mom!

Dear Britney <3

Yesterday your father and I had an exchange of words and it made me think. It made me think about what a wonderful little girl I have to call my daughter.

Me: She really loves the world

Your dad: And the world loves her.

The world does love you, B! I cannot stress the amount of people that stop us in the malls to have a look at you, to compliment us on what a beautiful little girl you are. You smile at everyone who looks at you and they instantly light up in return. When we go to friends or go out with friends they are always so surprised at how well behaved you are they ask if you ever cry at all. So many people have said that should they have a baby girl they want a baby girl like Britney-Lee. You are loved by the world. Let me add that nobody cares how your mommy is doing, I dont get a “how are you” I just simply get a “how’s Britney?” and I dont mind at all because I love gushing about you!

Thank you my baby, thank you for making my first journey through motherhood so absolutely beautiful and joyous, you are a true gem to me and I love you SO much!!

xx

Love,

Mommy!

Milestones reached this month:

  • Sitting
  • She lifts her arms up when she wants uppie
  • She can hold and drink out of her sippie cup
  • She is starting to get shy from strangers

  • She has mastered the “mmmm” sound, waiting for “mama” :)

Dear Britney,

You are so advanced for your age and I am so proud of you, one thing is for sure and that is that you are far from a boring baby, you make me laugh every single day and you amaze me more! I love you and I tell you that every day. I love how you pinch my face and scream when I smother you with too many kisses but I wont stop. You are a beautiful child. I will rock you to sleep forever untill you dont want me to any more. You are growing tooo fast, I looked at you lying on my bed this morning and thought, “where is my newborn?” Promise me one thing, that you will always be my little baby!!!

A Letter to Britney-Lee on her first Birthday (delayed post)

My Dear Child,

12 months ago today something amazing happened that has changed my life completely and made me the happiest human alive!! You were born. It took me 18 long and frustrating hours to bring you into this world and into my arms but once you were there it was all worth it and I was in euphoria! Right there and then, in that moment of time, you showed me what love REALLY is, and this love that I feel for makes my soul come alive and my happiness boil to the top!! I have never been more proud of anything or anyone ever as I am of you! You are my Life, My World, My Sunshine and my Everything. 
Looking back its hard to believe that there was a time you could not even hold your own neck up and that your days consisted of sleeping, feeding and nappy changing (the gloriful “I miss those” days) but now, 12 months later here you are strong as hell running around fighting sleep ‘till you pass out!! 
Your personality is something that baffles me every single day! How are you so intelligent? How did you learn everything so fast and so independently?! You r smart, way beyond explanation, you are hilarious and have me in stitches EVERY day, you are strong, you know what you want and wont settle for anything else (not without a fight) you are witty and sly, you know how to sway me. You are kind and caring and last of all you are beautiful my Baby! You are a real, stunning lil gem!!
As I have watched you grow from a newborn to a 1 year old I have watched myself grow from a clueless mother to a doting MOM and with my final words I want you to know that its all exciting growing up and learning new things and over coming new challenges but I beg you to stay young for as long as you can and never grow up too quickly because adulthood is forever and when you eventually reach adulthood remember that you will always be… MY BABY!!

Lots of love,
Mom

Standing Standing Standing Supported

Britney now climbs up everything and anything- the coffee table, TV stand, couches, beds, cupboards, gates, washing baskets, toy boxes, drawers, laps… everything!!! She’s brave enough to hold on only with one hand a lot of the time and a few times she has even let go and stood unsupported for a few seconds.

Each time you do that I am bubbling with pride, but… Hold on ‘lil girl, slow down a 'lil, don’t grow up too fast, mommy is really loving this age that you are at now!!!

Dear Britney-Lee,

You are now crawling, you are exactly 8 months, 1 week and 5 days old today. Where has the time gone. I remember the night that I discovered you were growing in my belly like it was last night and look at you know. Far from a time rice grain with a heartbeat. You are now a big baby- Tall for your age, 1 lil tooth popping out when you smile, so much personality, so many things you can do, so entertaining, so determined, so strong-willed, so lovable and so beautiful.

I want to tell you how proud I am of you. You are extremely clever and always learning more and more every day. Everytime you grow a month older my nose is burried in all my baby books learning what to expect from you in this new month, I am on baby centre too as I get my weekly e-mails and one thing is for sure, you are always on par (if not ahead) of your monthly milestones. at 5.5 months you could sit completely unsupported, something most babies can only do AFTER 6 months, You were clapping your hands at 6 months, something most babies can only do at a year. You understand when I tell you no and often respond to me by shaking your head. You have slept through the night since you were two months with the exceptions when you are sick, teething or uncomfortable, but even then you are never awake for more than 2 minutes untill you’re back sound asleep. So I am a very well-rested happy mommy thanks to you. at 8 months you were blabbering “dada” “mama” and “baba” and your 1st bottom left tooth popped out- right on time and at 8 months, 1 week old you started to crawl, where most babies only begin at 9 months. With all of that said I am very proud of you B, so smart, so eager for life. We have had our hard times, bad times and times I want to forget completely but the good DEFINITELY out weighs the bad.

Looking through your Facebook Album brings tears to my eyes every single time simply because you have grown far too quickly for my liking…. BUT promise me one thing Lil B… That YOU WILL ALWAYS BE MY BABY GIRL!

P.S- This picture of you was taken when you were a young 2 weeks old. This is how you would wake up every single time- a good stretch with a beautifuly screwed face. I loved it and I miss it!

I LOVE YOU!!!

Its the Small things!

Every day there are these small little things (big too) you do that make me fall deeper and deeper inlove every day!

I love it when you are sitting on my lap and my entire hand is able to hold your tiny leg and give it a squeeze now and again to let you know I love you. When I carry you around on my hip you hold so tightly on my thumb of the hand that is holding you, and should I pull it away for some reason and then put it back, sure enough you find it and hold onto it again. I love how when I make you smile you tuck one side of your face into your shoulder as if shy. I love when we lay and cuddle and when I hold my hand out infront of you you quickly grab it with both hands and carress it. I love how when you wake up in the morning you just lay in your cot and coo untill I bring you your bottle.

You are my happiness and although it seems impossibel, I love you more and more every single day!
