sweet marguerite


Oh my darling girl, where do I start? You've got me hook, line and sinker! I can't believe I get to spend the rest of my days being your Mum... what an absolute honour. Outside you're all peaches and cream skin, ocean-blue eyes and soft, vanilla hair. Inside you're relaxed, affectionate and connected. You are an extremely engaging little soul and I feel so deeply connected to you... I've felt a very spiritual bond from the moment you were placed on my chest and gazed into my eyes. Your mannerisms are dainty and delicate. You are relaxed and thoughtful. You're in no hurry and I love that about you... you slow me down and engage me, forcing me to become present in the moment.

The joy you have brought into our lives is indescribable. Your sister utterly adores you and nothing makes me happier than watching the love between you blossom. You have a special smile just for Daddy... and, just between us, I think it's safe to say you've got him wrapped securely around your little finger.

You've been with us only eight short months, yet I feel as though you couldn't possibly be more loved. You've stolen our hearts...

...our sweet, sweet Marguerite.

    Claire, your beautiful girls are so very similar, yet so very different. Lovely words. xx
    ps we still call Elke "peaches" as she also had delicious peaches and cream skin when she she was a bub.
