Favourite Photo Meme

Thank you to Carol at New Mummy and Ellie at Insomniac Mummy who tagged me to do this great post.

What I have to do...Pick a favourite photo and explain why. Sounds simple right?...

....NO! Oh My Gosh...I have sooo many pictures, especially of baby belle, which all bring back such amazing happy memories, I am literally glued to my camera with her! And then there are all the pictures from my childhood which again bring such great memories. And then there are pictures of me and hubby and all our holidays and special times!  I am going to pick 2 because I was tagged twice (cheating a bit I know, sorry)

So first it has to be my little angel, the light of my life, Baby Belle. This was taken on her 1st day in the world and out of all the pics we have, professional etc, this just makes my heart flip. The birth itself was an amazing experience for me and hubby, we were only talking about it all over again last night, it is the single most amazing thing I think we will ever go through. The first time I heard her cry, looked into her eyes and the first time she grabbed daddy's finger and tried to suck it seconds after being born...just out of this world.  Not a day goes by when she doesn't make me smile, I thank God for her everyday.




And secondly I chose this one of me and dad at a 'father & daughter dance' in America.  I chose this one because it reminds me of the great times I had living out there.  I remember feeling right at home the moment we got there and this must have all been down to mum making the house a home and introducing me to some great friends like Beth, Sarah & Lizzie. Brownies Troop 155, Halloween, long summers, Disney World...we had some really great times.



I think pretty much everyone has been tagged in this meme now in the mummy blogging community.  So this is an open invitation...if anyone reading this would like to carry it on please do and let me know
