Happy 3rd Birthday Matilda

Miss Milly Moo was 3 yesterday! 3! Wow, such a big girl already. Doesn't seem like yesterday since I was writing this post last year. The below photo was taken minutes after her birth, a C section hence all the tubes hanging off me and the bewildered look on her face saying huh?? I was nice and cosy in there! Look at her perfect little toes though as she tries to kick me! Have always prided myself on my neat feet, no freaky long second toes for me and Milly!


And here she is 2 weeks later in that quilt that her Aunty Ad made her. Has bit of an old man's look on her face still. And below we have her 3 years later, all ready to attack those smarties on her cake! She is a joy to have in our lives. I still remember at my 20 week scan being told she was a girl and the nano second I had of this intense dissappointment that she was a girl instead of a boy, but it was a nano second and now I can not think of anything better than having 2 girls. :)

We had a great day yesterday. I asked her what she would like to do for the day and she said catch the train to the museum! So thats what we did, took along my Dad for back up support as the city with a 3 and a 4.5 year old solo? *shudder at the thought!* It was fun, we had a whirlwind visit to the museum, checked out the essentials, the frogs and the dinosaur. Lunch at Hungry Jacks for the girls, Japanese for me, Chinese for Dad. Went then and looked at one of the large department stores Christmas display and then it was time to catch the train home again. Happy 3rd birthday Matilda!

What a little beauty. Our 'little one' out of three, one 17, one 15 and she, 8, is almost as tall as I am. Enjoy little Milly.
