She was our "Little tortoise"
This early photo of Little Missy shows why we called her that.
We (especially Dad D) thought she was and still is the most beautiful! :D

She has not been a Little Tortoise (Skilpadjie) since the very beginning, and we have now seen the Toddler phase pass well.
(Just a little bit of tantrum behaviour left, but not that much!)
She's Miss Fine now! A proper Teen.
I get sad when I look at how small she was and how quickly she has changed into this bright and opinionated and "sometimes" chatty girl! Because, sometimes, we have teen sulks as well... 😉
But I love each phase with all the quirks and the cuteness!
She is still very much the centre of our universe!
Her Big Sister plays a big part in her life. She loves spending time with her.
She is in Grade 9 this year! It is high school, and it has been a big adjustment in Grade 8. (It was Grade R just yesterday...(sic)) But we love that she has her own gang of nerdy friends, and it couldn't have worked out better for her first year in high school.
I wish I can have this for as long as possible! (I say it every day.)
You are growing and becoming your own person much too quickly!
But we love You, and we love this! Even this teen phase! ;-)
