Its Dakota, aka Fiddley…

 

Its the 14th of March, 1999. I am slightly older, hopefully slightly wise, when Dakota Chloe joins our little family, after a 5 hour induced labour.

She makes Cara a big sister, and reaffirms my belief that i want to do nothing else than be ‘Mummy’ :)sisters00 Dakota is a ‘Daddys girl’ loving her Daddy above all else. Dakota is oh-so-sweet, and beautiful with a big round face and curls.

Dakota matured into a loud, loving,loud, still sweet, loud, extremely intelligent but very loud 10 year old. Did I mention shes very loud?

Dakota wins awards every single week at school  I go up for interviews and the teacher says, every single time, ‘There is no problems, shes doing great,”  She inherited my love for reading too, which I love!

She is the mother hen of the kids. She will get up at 5am if she hears Luka crying before I do!

She loves to sing, ride her bike, her friends, her sisters ( and brothers) dance, write stories and play sport. My 2nd born. When I think of Dakota i think of the note i have in my kitchen

To Mummy,

I have loved you all my life,

Love, Dakota..

See? I do have daughters, Rani is next! Dakota is slightly more co-operative than Cara when it comes to photos, but she has a terrible posing face whenever she sees the camera:)

Wow...oue kids are spaced the same. My oldest was born in Jan of 97 (I think I said that already) and my second was born in Aug of 99. She is the mother hen too, and my goofy one. I love this idea! It's great to tell about each child individually!!

She is just beautiful! I love the pic of her holding the baby - and she gets up, of her own accord, at 5am if she hears him crying?!? Perfect little mother hen!
