Pretty Dresses, Little Curls, Thank Heavens For Little Girls

For me, becoming a mother has been one of the biggest accomplishments that I have made and probably will ever make in my life. Any decisions that I have made has never brought me so much joy and love into my heart. I'm sure that many of you will be with me on this one when I say that a love for a child is like no other love known to man, it's an unconditional love, a love without limitations, a love that is impossible to break. But my journey into motherhood has by far not been one of the easiest.

From an early age I was told that it may be difficult for me to conceive and for years I convinced myself that I didn't want to children. I met my husband, fell in love and we got married but soon after the questions began. When are you going to have a baby? Is there a bun in the oven yet? I would always dream of the day of getting a positive pregnancy test and prayed for the day to come and could only imagine what it would be like to have a little baby bump. After months of a lot of heartache our future in becoming parents was bleak and it was then when we decided to stop trying for a baby. We began to focus on all the great things we had already achieved and made plans for our future, then something amazing happened. My husband and I had beaten the odds and we were finally expecting our first child.
 

Early on in our pregnancy we were convinced that we were having a boy. Thinking back to our second baby scan we thought all the 'signs' for a boy were there and we even said he a few times. But during our appointment the sonographer immediately knew the gender. I was having A GIRL!
 
I couldn't actually believe what she said. We both cried and couldn't believe she said we were having a girl. As a first-time mum, I didn’t know what to expect… in fact, I STILL don’t know what to expect!  Motherhood is still new to me and I am constantly learning and hopefully improving every single day. But one thing I know for sure, is that my baby girl changed my life. Babies are special and so unique! They can be exhausting, they are precious and they are perfect and so I wanted to tell you all the great things about having a GIRL...
 
MY GIRL IS A DELIGHT TO DRESS

Have you ever looked at little girl's clothes? From very early on I found myself mesmerized by all the beautiful options that were available. The beautiful dresses, the colours, the ruffles, the lace there's no doubt about it, girls clothes are way too adorable. My daughter's wardrobe is very impressive, I would probably go as far to say that I am very envious - mines mainly black, grey or white! But dressing her has actually taught me a bit about fashion and now I am finding myself paying attention to what I put myself in. Another great thing about having a little girl is the SHOES. Again there are so many fantastic options for her and I am already showing her the importance of a good sized shoe collection.


THE OH-SO-CUTE HAIR ACCESSORIES
 
When my daughter was born she rocked a granddad hairstyle for quite some time and then her hair started to grow and now it's crazy!!! *I must get her to the hairdressers* From the cute headbands, bows, clips to the oh so cute pigtails to plaits there are just so many options for beautifying my little lady's hairs. But do you know what makes this even better? My husband is great at styling her hair, no honestly, I'm not just saying this he really is.


MY GIRL IS VERY CHATTY AND A SOCIAL BUTTTERFLY
 
It's well known that girls start talking earlier than boys. My daughter has been chatting since before she could walk. Some days there are times where I wish she would be less vocal but it's lovely to sit there and actually have a conversation with her about unicorns, princesses and why they've decided to hide under the sofa. My daughter doesn't go to nursery yet but whenever we have playdates or go to toddler groups she is quite the social butterfly and I love to watch her play with other children. But being an only child and not in a nursery yet I did think that perhaps she would be the complete opposite and not want to leave my side, but no, as soon as she sees other children or those doors open at toddler group she off unless she wants food or a drink. Haha.
 

SHE HAS BECOME MY OWN MINI ME

I walked into my dressing room and saw her playing with my makeup brushes saying 'eyes'. I hardly ever do my makeup in front of her yet she figured out what they were and how to use them. I have even caught her with one of my handbags slung over her shoulders wearing my slippers *just to let you all know I have never ever gone out in my slippers* and as soon as she saw me coming in the room she started strutting around the room saying I am mummy.



MY LITTLE GIRL MAKES ME LOVE MY HUSBAND EVEN MORE

I can remember the new born days so clearly and the times where she would make it clear that my cuddles were better than Daddy's and that I would be the only one that soothe her if she was grumpy, hungry, or in pain. Even though some days this is still the case I have noticed that she's become quite the Daddy's girl and makes it clear when she wants Daddy to give her a bath, read her a bed time story or play make believe ponies. Most of the time I am not invited to play their games but I adore watching my two favourite people develop such a strong bond and seeing their bond makes me love my husband even more than I already do.


APPRECIATION FOR MY OWN MUM
 
Being a parent is hard work. Understanding their cries, figuring out when they are hungry, when they need soothing and most of all learning what is best for both you and your baby. Since becoming a mum to my beautiful daughter one thing that I can say is that I appreciate my mum and dad so much more. My mum had three children under four by the age of 24! When I was this age the thought of having three children under four scared me and I only just managed to move out. Both my parents were always willing to help and lend a hand when I had my daughter and never made me feel bad about dropping her off so I could get a few hours sleep. Now that I have my little girl it has taught me to appreciate my own mum.

 
MY DAUGHTER MAKES ME A BETTER PERSON

I have to say that my daughter has made me a better person, she has given me a purpose and has made me realise what is really important in life. I know that being a mum to my beautiful little girl inspires me to want to be an even better person. Being a parent you are faced with many challenges, some that you thought you could never endure, but because of my daughter I now know that I am more confident in my abilities and less likely to give up even when everything in my mind tells me to. Even if this sounds a little corny being a mum to my daughter has made me feel as if I can do anything and to always show gratitude to the simple things in life. I will continue my journey in motherhood knowing that my daughter makes me a better person and she reminds me of that everyday in all her cuddles.

  2. This is lovely! My son was the same, started off as such a mummy's boy and that continued for well over a year, but somewhere along the line it's switched and he's a complete Daddy's boy these days. I'm not complaining though, it's lovely to watch the two of them together. Thanks for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

    1. There are times when a pretty pink bow will just not do. Haha. But most of the time she will keep them in because her fringe is very long.

  8. This is lovely, I have two girls too and whilst they are not pink frilly type of girls opting for cool instead but I agree that watching my husbands love for his girls is just amazing x #Sharingthebloglove

    1. I was a 'cool' girl when I was younger and so I was surprised that she loves all the pretty pinks and bows. I assumed she would be like me, But even so, my girl loves to get dirty and won't go anywhere without her toy trains.

  9. This is beautiful. As a mum to two little princesses I can completely relate. Girls clothes are so beautiful. I have never been a huge pink fan or super girlie so of course my tow are as girlie as they get! I have had to channel my inner pink and I have learnt to love it. I know what you mean about the daddy/daughter relationship. It is so special to watch grow.
    Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday.

  20. Ah what a lovely story. I also thought that I wasn't going to have a baby because I always had issues since a I was very young. But my first daughter came pretty quick which was a surprise. The problem was when we were ready to have our second baby. It took us more than a year trying. It was very strange. We then decided to stop trying and after that I got pregnant. It is funny how things happen when you are not stressing about it anymore. I was also certain I was having a boy but she ended up being a girl, so now I have 2 little girls that I love so much! It is a lot of fun having girls! Your daughter is gorgeous! Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS. It is lovely to have you, :-) xx
