There are defining moments in the life of a mumma when she has a daughter. Some of those are big things like first steps and first words, the moment you get your first kiss just because Bubba wants to show you her love.
Then, for this mumma at least, there are other, smaller girl only things which may not seem significant to others. In fact, they may pass unnoticed.
But for me, wanting to be a mumma for so long and always hoping for a daughter, there are defining moments which to most are just ordinary things, yet still take my breath away.
Like the day I put Bubba’s hair in pig tails for the first time – exactly two years to the day since I found out I was pregnant.
And yesterday, when I realised that her hair, with the aid of a couple of clips to hold her whispy side pieces (just like her mumma still does!), was long enough to wear in a real ponytail.
She looks like such a little girl. With a perfect profile, a gorgeous pony tail, and a mumma who may burst from the pure joy Bubba’s every day brings!
