No more children, no more teenagers... adults in the house !
21 years ago, a little girl was born at home : my daughter " Gaia" !
She was born at home in the presence of my housedoctor Bruno and midwife Geert, brother Freek ( then 4 years old) and Aran ( 2 years old) were there too, accompagnied by my mom-in-law.
She lost her first baby after 3 days and had a very difficult delivery of my husband Wienne, so she was thrilled to be witness to a normal birth ànd the birth of her granddaughter.
I couldn't have done it without my husband Wienne, who was there all the time and on 18 may 1993, at 18.36 there she was : a tiny girl with lots of black hair !
Of course giving birth is intense but it was a good, very peaceful birth in our own house. All good memories...
I wrote the text on her birthcard to reflect this moment.
On the front of the card was a drawing, made by a friend where little creatures look into the circle to see her name "Gaia".
Her name means : "the earth as a godess" and I'm still very fond of her special name :)
In a blink of an eye 21 years have passed... and she was my last teenager until today !
Now I have adult children... does this means I'm old now ?:)
As a birthdaypresent we went with her in april to a convent in Bonn, Germany: Hobbitcon, ALL about the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings...
But I could not pass her birthday without another present and I got her a photo-cake.
She was photomodel for a friend, Marieke De Bodt, who's studying photography and I took one of these colorful photo's.
Gaia changed her black hairs from her birth a lot the past years, but she's still a special one :)
I also made her a flying easelcard.
As she's creative and draws and paints a lot I made her a card in her pinks and blues and with paintbrushes.
"because you're special...21..."
I enjoyed my daughter as a little child, as a teenager and now I'm enjoying her seeing her go her own path in life as an adult.
I hope we can have YEARS together to enjoy !!
Big kisses and hugs my daughter !
