Day 275 – Our Birthday Girl

It is my Darling Daughters’ birthday today (Oct 2nd), and I’m finding it hard to believe that it all started 10 years ago!  I can still remember the long painful walk around the car park, when the nurses were insisting nothing was happening and we should go home.  I still remember the surprise at her arriving 26 hours after it all started (never ever believe that the second will be faster and easier than the first!).  Facing the stars instead of the earth, in her own dream world, and finally turning up on a full moon, in her own time.  Life has been pretty much like that ever since.  ‘Wait’ being her favourite phrase.

Thila was a pretty accurate name.  She is named after a reef in the Maldives (Thila Filuvashu), where we floated at a depth of 10 metres on the way up from a scuba dive. in awe and wonder at a school of Manta Ray slowly circling above us.  We buddy shared air until there was none left, and were forced to come back into the real world above …….. Thila has kept us enthralled ever since.

With all our love, and a few photo memories of the first months, Mummy and Papa XXX
