Enjoy every single moment…
In less than a week my first born ,my eldest daughter, my little princess as me and her daddy call her is starting school..big school! Time put a stop so I can enjoy more these days before life of responsibilities starts for her.
I know I’ve been writing a lot about her and her sister these last couple of months but the reason is that I am trying to make as many memories as possible but still time seems to slip through…my fingers…
If I close my eyes I can perfectly see the moments…
…when I was walking with my husbands through the hallways and stairs in St. George’s Hospital in London…
..walking the streets around the hospital and how the three of us sat drinking one last drink in that pub around the corner…the name of the pub…I can’t remember it…
…how scared and excited was my mum and inpatient all at the same time to see and hold her first grandchild…you my lovely and precious Kara Maureen!
And then after a long and hard labour you appeared….
..and start screaming…
…and O my how you screamed…
But then you stopped and how lovely was to hug and kiss my beautiful baby…you Kara Maureen!
There were nights when all you were ding is to cry and poop and nights when you let us have a rest and slept through but that’s when I was more concerned…
“Is she breathing?”
“I hope nothing is wrong with her!”
“I will just go and check on her!”
I loved you so much that I couldn’t stay away from you.
This is how I cannot understand how you grow unto be such an independent little girl!
Maybe was true fact that mummy and daddy had to put you in nursery when you were only 9 months old..maybe it was the fact that mummy was working late nights and suffered of postnatal depression…
I don’t know. But the fact that you are so independent doesn’t hurt you. It just makes you an even more special child.
You loved your baths ever since you were a baby…
And being in pictures…your second nature 🙂 – Below the day of your Christening…
We took you places…
And then you turn 1…
And then 2…
And then 3….
And then 4…
And then 5…
And you became a gorgeous little girl that loves ballet…
…and simply adores her little sister…
Now the time has come for her to start Class Zero as its called here (reception) and she surprises us more and more each day through her kindness, intelligence and beauty.
The other day she had to go to a psychologist to have a chat. You see if kids are younger that they should be when they start school ( even that is only a couple of months) they need to go through this test in order for the psychologist to check if she is apt to start school.
She was great and the result was that she will have no problems to start school. Why I am telling you this though is that I wanted to tell you how much she impress the psychologist and her mummy with the answer to one of the questions:
P: If you see a house on fire what do you do?
K: I’m going to help.
How good is that? A grownup answer!
Parents..time is passing fast and your crying baby will soon become the child that goes to school and has responsibilities…and then shortly after the adult. Take time and enjoy those cuddles. And kiss and hug…and make sure you never get too upset with them…even when they cry, scream and kick.
I am trying to take advantage of the fact that I am home now with both my girls…Try and enjoy every simple minute and moment as if you will they will certainly will to.
She is absolutely beautiful and the photos to show her growing up are beautiful x
What a beautiful post! I love the photo timeline, watching her grow. You have a beautiful daughter!

Otilia, she is beautiful and what a moving post, They grow up far too quick.
Thank you Jen. She is starting to be such a child…I want my baby back 🙁
It is crazy how time flies when you have children. Time is so precious x
Mummy of Two
What gorgeous photos and great memories. It is great to remember everything as time really does fly by!
That’s a lovely post and such a lovely way of looking back.
Thank you for sharing her journey. Bet it feels like yesterday she was born. It is good that they check she is ready for school – and reassuring for you that she is.
You Baby Me Mummy
She is so beautiful and what a lovely post x
Time goes far too quickly. I never realised you had to take a test if you born later in the academic year. My friend had to fight to let her premature daughter stay behind a year.
Tired Mummy of Two
Wow such beautiful pictures! She has grown so much since I saw her last
What lovely memories, they do grow up so quickly. Enjoy they while they are still small x
That video made me cry – my daughter will head off to uni next year and I have no idea where the time has gone! Your daughters are so beautiful- just like their Mum xx

She’s stunning Otilia and how lovely to see all her life in pictures like that.
Aw what a lovely post and so, so true x x
Nicest post i have read in a long while what a lovely tribute to a beautiful girl
Oh such beautiful photos and what a gorgeous girl. I am doing this post too and have spent so mud time looking back at old photos of the children and you do forget how much they have grown up.
What a beautiful post, Otilia. She’s stunning x

What a heartfelt post – yes times does seem to slip away but sounds like you are creating a lifetime of memories to share with your children too.
You’re right. time really does go so fast. I can’t believe my little girl is now in her second year of primary school and my youngest will start there next September. I’m definitely trying to make the most of cuddles with them before I blink and they become teenagers who are embarrassed by the sight of me!
She was a gorgeous baby with all that black hair and she’s growing into an absolute stunner 🙂
She is beautiful 🙂 Time really does fly by. I try to keep scrap books and photo books to help me to remember as much as I can. It is horrible when I realise that I have forgotten some parts. I wasn’t to remember it all! You have some great memories and some fantastic photos on this post. Thank you for sharing.
