Happy 14th Birthday Sian

Happy Birthday Dear Sian.
14 years ago I went to bed with a stomach stretched huge and tight. 
I woke in the early hours of the morning and dashed to the bathroom, my waters broke and we were off to the hospital. 
The excitement was huge. 
No mobile to text Grandparents. 
No Facebook to update friends. 
No blog to post pictures on. 
Just your Dad and I , happy newly-weds about to change overnight into parents without a manual. 
The last 14 years have taught us many things. 
Not everything can be learned from a book. 
More fun can be got from an empty cereal box than an expensive toy.
Home-made gifts are worth more than all the tea in China.
and finally... 
14 years of love and boundaries, hugs and trust can produce a wonderful girl. 
A girl who knows her own mind. 
Who is individual and cannot be moulded. 
A girl who shares our characteristics and added her own too. 
A girl who we are immensely proud to call our own. 
Sian Molly Baynham. 
You are loved with all our hearts.
