Tomorrow Niamh will be SEVEN years old!!!
At 11:00 she gets her ears pierced which is what she hopes to be the start of a life adorned with jewels. Its tough to know your child’s dreams will never come true.
When I took this photo of her I said This is the last photo we will have of you as a 6 year old. Tomorrow you start growing hair on your chest.
She looked at me puzzled, peeked down her shirt and said Oh, I already have some. Do you still have hair on your chest?
Nope I replied. It falls off when you turn 9.
Happy Birthday, Niamh. I never knew life could be so challenging until I became your Mama.
I love you to bits.
