Ten! Where did that go then?

Once upon a time a baby girl was born... Her mums called her Pearl - and they thought she was the most amazing baby ever born. This is what she looked like when she was seven months old.


Around her first birthday she loved a cuddly puffin called Emily. She ran everywhere by now...

By the time she was two she had broken an arm, had chicken pox and was talking lots. Quote from this holiday:
"Havin' an argamut (argument!) mummies?"
We were - over a bus timetable!


Just before she was three a brother appeared. This didn't slow her down during the following year - but it did her mums.



When she was four. Leo was good for rolling about on the floor with, but he did eat a lot of the cucumber...


This seems to show two sweet little creatures! Pearl is five and Leo two. We had a lot of trouble finding a photo where she was covered. Naked was her choice of clothes for a year or two!

Very springy - six years old.


Seven and a growth spurt! She made that waistcoat herself



The summer she was eight - lots of cartwheels.


Nine years old - our beautiful girl.


Ten today! Ten whole years since she was born. I can't believe it has gone so fast. Happy birthday to our Pearlie.
