Another year older

"Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday, happy birthday, happy birthday to you" ~ Traditional nursery song

My dearest E,

It's your birthday tomorrow- the 25th of October. I cannot believe it has been 3 years since you arrived. I'm amazed, just looking at you now. You're practically grown-up.

I've planned a little party for you, with your favourite cousins, Maya & Leia, and your favourite squeeze, Gavin, your Godpa's dearest son. Along with your grandparents, your Uncle James & Jerry, and Aunts Christine & Joanne. And all Mummy's and Daddy's closest friends- your Godma & Godpa, Aunts Shen, Eileen & June and Uncles Calvin, Paul & Eugene. A small party, to be sure- but what fun we'll have. And I'd rather have these people, as I'm sure you will, than any other people in the world.

Because they're family.

Happy Birthday, my princess.
