Sorry but my post may be a little sentimental today, 5 Years ago today our little family was made complete with birth of our gorgeous baby girl. Everything was perfect until at 1 day old she stopped breathing and had to be recussatated, at 2 days old we were told our baby was seriously ill and were given 5 mins to say goodbye before she was taken into the neo natal unit. At 3 days old our little princess had to have a life saving operation which eventually transpired into us being told the devestating news that our little girl had the life limiting condition of Cystic Fibrosis. From this point our lives changed forever, 5 years on and life is sometimes not easy with a daily regieme of medication and physio, regular trips to the hospital and a constant watchful eye on madam. Abbie is a little star always smiling, has so much energy and is such an inpsiration to all, she touches the hearts of everyone she meets and you cannot help but fall in love with her (ask anyone who has met her and they will tell you so!!). We dont know how long Abbie will be in our lives for so everyday is a bonus, we try to make each day count and take each day as it comes.
So today my little princess turned 5 and as usual she has been spoilt with presents galore and this afternoon we had a party at our local Play Barn (type thing) for her and 20 friends & family. My best friend also made her the most fabulous Princess Castle for her cake which was the talk of the party!!
Here are a few photos of today.
The knitted teddy in the picture is TED from school, this weekend he is staying at our house, we have to take him places, take photos and fill in his diary. LOL!!!
Thanks for putting up with my ramblings today, hope to be back with some cards soon.
