I cannot believe that Miss B is 8 today!
So much has happened in the last year and she has grown in so many ways.
A week after her 7th birthday she started Primary 3, a very important year as it’s the last of the infant department. She loves school and was really fortunate to have another fantastic teacher last year. He was doing his probationary year and had the most amazing way with the kids. Miss B is a little book worm and loves learning and school in general. The teacher they had really sparked her imagination and engaged all the kids in her class. They did a project on Pirates which she loved and they got to visit The Tall Ship in Glasgow and met real pirates and went on a treasure hunt. She got two brilliant school reports and her end of year report made me cry. I’m so proud of her and what she has accomplished in school so far. Long may that continue!
Two weeks after her 7th birthday she became a big sister. I always knew she was going to make a good big sister but I underestimated just how great she would be. She absolutely adores her little sister and is mostly very patient with her. When she was tiny all she wanted to do was cuddle and hold her. Now that she is more mobile she wants to play with her and will spend ages playing toys with her and keeping her amused. She is a great help to me and usually keeps an eye on her while I am preparing meals or getting ready. She loves going in to be the first to wake her sister up in the morning and is always over the moon if she gets her first smile of the day.
She has also come on leaps and bounds in her gymnastics class and with her swimming lessons. She is now in the advanced class at swimming and I’ve been taking her every week during the school holidays. It is amazing watching her, she is like a little mermaid 🙂
She is strong willed, independent, fiesty and determined. She is also really mature for her age and a natural born worrier. I’m trying to help with the worrying because she can get herself into an awful state at times when she starts to over think things and gets in a panic.
Since I’ve been off work we have spent a LOT of time together and I’ve started to realise just how alike we are. We’ve giggled, had fun times, cried, argued and clashed but I keep reminding myself that she is growing up and needs patience, love and understanding.
She is manic about computers and loves going on her computer to play Minecraft on our server with her friends and spends hours building things and setting up new worlds. She is also a big movie fan and loves nothing more than going to the cinema to see a film or to cuddle up on the couch and watch an old favourite. This week I introduced her to Hocus Pocus which she loved so much she watched three times in a row. She loves music and dancing and watched and re-watches The Next Step every other day and copies the routines. Taylor Swift is a big favourite at the moment along with Katy Perry and Little Mix. She is also superhero daft and LOVES The Avengers with Iron Man and Black Widow being particular favourites.
All in all 7 has been pretty great for her and I can’t wait to see what 8 brings her 🙂
As always, here are some pictures of her growing up 🙂
Happy 8th birthday beautiful girl, hope you have a great day!
Lots of Love
