4 years ago on a cold and snowy day a little girl was born at home. We named her Hope Ruby and pray that she will learn to treasure the Hope of the world sent at Christmas time to be her Saviour.
She grew fast! Which is unusual for these Hindle babies and was soon one. We had a sledging and hot chocolate party that year and green and pink cupcakes.
Then we blinked or so it seemed and you were two Lots happened that year and we took you to IKEA, shopped your pressies on the day and had cupcakes 2 weeks late. I'm ashamed to admit I don't know where the pics are, or even if we have any. As Mummy explained a lot happened that year!
And then you turned 3, and were so poorly that day that we had to cancel your party and put the cake into the freezer. But later in the week we celebrated the with the princess cake, a gaggle of friends and lots of fun.
Lots of fun would be a good phrase to describe the last year. Wow did you look tall with those jeans and reindeer t-shirt the other day.You've started to spend hours colouring and pretending to be a colouring teacher, and you love all your baby dolls and stuffed animals and taking little bags full of little things from one room to another but never back where they belong! Chattering may be your favourite thing and with all the descriptions like delicious and disgusting you do make us laugh.
We love you sweet Hope girl and will be prying for you everyday you are 4.
