cant believe she is 4 on friday!!

Hi ladies

Well doesnt time fly cant belive my little (or not so little) girl is 4 on friday!!!

She has gone from 1lb 3oz prem baby to a beautiful 4 your old little girl, not so little she is so tall she is 5 - 6 year clothes and a size 12/13 shoe the same as my friends 8 year old arrrghh

I find olivias birthday very emotional i clock watch all day reliving that awful but wonderful day 18 th may 2003.

i enjoy it for olivia but when she goes to bed i cry for britain, was hoping i would feel like this, this year but if anything its worse! I t was today 4 years ago that everything started high blood pressure pain etc and it is still so raw

hopefully will be better next year

RE: cant believe she is 4 on friday!!

Hi Zoe

Well done Olivia on being such a gorgeous, tall and strong little 4-year old. Zoe, you've done a great job in being her mummy for 4 years. :D I know what you mean about reliving the day - thankfully I only have happy (if painful) days to remember. I hope that maybe this year you can work through some of the raw pain and put it to rest.


I find olivias birthday very emotional i clock watch all day reliving that awful but wonderful day 18 th may 2003.

May it be more "wonderful" than "awful" this year.

Big hugs

Hi Zoe

My daughter was a premmie (32 weeks, so quite a lot later than Olivia!) and I know exactly what you mean about watching the clock and remembering an awful, but wonderful, day. Even though I'd been diagnosed with pre-eclampsia, it was all still surreal when they told me I'd need an emergency c-section, and last year I remembered the run up to it all and have started doing so already this year (Evelyn's birthday is at the end of May). I have a feeling its part of the reason I'm not sleeping very well!!

You've obviously done a fab job, so a huge well done to you, and Olivia.

I love the name Olivia by the way!


My family is complete...I am grateful every day

scary them startin school isn't it? dd will only be four and a few days when she starts!

hope olivia (and you) have a fab day. She does sound like she has done very well to be so tall and strong after her tricky start. You must have looked after her very well before and after her birth. She is a credit to you Zoe, try to focus on the positive

Sooz, a few weeks after he starts he'll be coming home with reading books and you'll be so blown away at his genius, so happy, so proud that you created this boy... that your yearning for his baby days will quickly fade.

My baby starts school in September too. When I joined this site she was 11 months old and still in little babygros, now I'm looking at school uniform :bawl: BUT... I'm so proud to have created a little independent person who's ready to go off into the big bad world... it's a real privilege to do that.

It's hard to believe all these wee babies are growing up. How does the time pass so fast? I would like a wee pause button sometimes! xx
Keep smiling :happy:
