Yes, I cried. Of course I did. My baby is becoming a young woman. And such a lovely one
She has gone from this loveable baby...
... to the first day of school. (I love the seriousness in Emily's face here. She knew life was changing.) Helen could not wait to start school though.
And here she was today.
Needless to say you do want to know what she won the cup for. (Don't you?!) Helen got the Art Cup, and it was the only one she absolutely, desperately wanted to win. Can you tell from the smile on her face?! You can't see the smile on my face, but it is just as wide as Helen's. I am just so proud!
Congratulations to Helen. I'm sure Helen and Emily are equally proud of Mom and Dad.ReplyDelete
So lovely. Well done Helen!ReplyDelete
Congratulations to Helen and you, proud mum! She has changed a bit but we can still recognise her!ReplyDelete
Wow I wonder where she gets her artistic talent! Hope you have a great summer break with them before the delights of big school!ReplyDelete
Yey! Congrats to Helen, and to you xxxReplyDelete
so fast, how does it go just so fast?! Here's to a special summer together before the changes start accelerating, I know they change so much when they start primary and I have heard it is even quicker when they start secondary school.ReplyDelete
Yay, well done, Helen. I still think of my littlest sister in a very similar pose to that of Helen's baby shot in your post - whenever she rings me to discuss boyfriend trouble, my mental image is of her in a sleep suit with one of those baby walker trolleys full of bricks, aged 2 or thereabouts. She's 25 now!ReplyDelete
Aw, well done Helen!! Enjoy the summer hols now before she goes off to big school!ReplyDelete
Woo hoo! Congratulations!!!!!!ReplyDelete
Congratulations for Helen! I am so glad I got to meet her, she is growing into a fine person.ReplyDelete

I think it is a bit mean your mum had you cleaning before you were even one!
Enjoy the summer xxx

Wow, its a huge milestone in her life: primary to secondary, although I bet she can't wait! Big congratulations to her for winning the art awardReplyDelete

Congrat's to you both and many wonderful years ahead, a budding young lady!. The Art Cup, yes, she follows in her Mom's footstepsReplyDelete
Well done Helen! I had exactly the same feeling in miniature today - my eldest 'graduated' from nursery. Couldn't believe that he isn't a teeny weeny little baby any more! Not that he was ever that teeny weeny...ReplyDelete
