Dear Xanthe: Thirteen Months

Not a baby anymore.
Toddler.

Walking, almost running.
Laughing and testing boundaries.

Exploring, playing, building and destroying.
Hugging, kissing, wave hello.

New teeth, sweet smile.
Peek-a-boo, sing and dance.

Sweet girl, my child.
You have my heart.
Completely.

I love you,

Mum.
