She likes Justin Bieber and JLS, she swoons over Robbie Amell from True Jackson (he's pretty darn hot!) and she asks, "when I'm older will I have a boyfriend?" Questions like this indicate how much she has grown up this past year; how she is starting to see the world in a different light to her imagination surrounding Barbie. It's now become "Barbie and Ken". Of course I am aware of her realisations of growing up; the fact that I can no longer talk to her like she's my little girl, even though, in my eyes, she always will be; and I sometimes miss those earlier years of innocence, of playing with Postman Pat and his black and white cat. But it doesn't matter that I can't turn the clock back. I'll always have those memories and my love for Amy will ensure they are locked in my heart forever. Alongside my little girl.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMY
