Eight on 9/10/11.


Dearest Jazzy,

Very, very early this morning you jumped out of your bed and came into ours for a cuddle. There were no more days left on your calender for you to cross off. Your birthday had arrived.

We spoke about the day you were born, you did a dance for us in your birthday suit, you opened your prezzies, ate some lollies and got dressed in the dress you had been saving since Broome.


You could not believe your day had finally arrived.


We gave you a new bike, a PINK helmet, a dolly I knitted, lollies, a tiara and lots of cards.


Your road trip friends Sammy and Shelby came over and gave you prezzies and we cut up lots of fruit


and feasted on a stack of J pancakes.

A man came over and gave you a red fishing rod. He said he was leaving Exmouth and didn't need it anymore.

And then you ran off to play with your friends at the playground next to our caravan.


Later on we watched the movie of your life that Dad made for you. You cried. You swear you never cry in movies but you had tears streaming down your face while you watched this one.


We rode our bikes into town and came across a little town market. You jumped on the jumping castle, then on a trampoline and came home for a swim in the pool.

As I write this you are at your friend Stephanie's cabin making a stuffed toy.

No wonder you can't stop telling us that this is the best birthday ever!
And its only 4.30pm. You've still got candles to blow out, icecream cake to eat and the outdoor caravan park movie to watch that you and Indi chose.

To think that I worried about celebrating your birthday away from your friends.

Happy birthday Miss Jazzy our fairy princess.
May your life be filled with sparkly, sweet, giggly, happy things.

  16. Happy Birthday Jazz. What a beautiful day you've had and what a beautiful post your Mum wrote that you will help you remember forever! My little girls birthday is going to be on the 11/11/11 this year - pity she will only be 3 and not 11 as that would have been almost as cool as your birthday numbers aligning!

  32. Happy Birthday to your Jazzy J - sounds like it was definitely the best birthday ever.

    We celebrated Kelvin's birthday this weekend too and worried about our newly middled-child being neglected - but a pirate party ensured that this was far from the result!! Funny how parents seems to worry uneccessarily.

Thanks so much for stopping by...

I do read every single comment you leave and appreciate it very much, but I should let you know that I can be a wee bit on the useless side when replying to comments, that's just me, everyday life sometimes gets in the way....so I'll apologise now, just in case.
