Little Chop was born in February 2012, during the hot Melbourne summer, with a mass of black hair and weighing almost 4kg.
She entered the world blue with the cord wrapped tightly around her neck, a memory that makes my heart palpitate, but recovered quickly and went on to thrive. She gained the nickname Little Chop because she wasn’t little at all but rather a pudgy little piglet with full cheeks and chins for days.
Today Little Chop is an extremely tall, happy and bright toddler with golden ringlets and a love of keys. She tells me stories, makes me laugh, drives me crazy and is the love of my life (sorry Daddy Bear).
