Three whole years ago today our beautiful boy was born. These past three years have passed so very quickly yet it feels like he’s been apart of our lives forever.
His entrance into the world was a quick one and since then he’s been a little whirlwind, full of energy and full of life holding onto a huge smile throughout. Everyone used to comment on photographs of him saying what a happy little thing he was (and he still is).
He’s developing into such a lovely character, he’s a joy to be around, such a lot of company and good fun. Although we do have ‘those days’ luckily, they are few and far between.
We’ve had a few issues with sleeping recently. He’s been waking up a lot in the night, calling out for reassurance in the dark of the night, just wanting to make sure we’re there and to switch on his nightlight. This morning after four or five call outs we moved him into bed with me for a cuddle whilst his Daddy went into his bed. He climbed into the bed, snuggled under the duvet and reached out for my hand and placed his inside of mine. We lay there for about half an hour, just silently enjoying the comfort of the bed and the closeness of each other. He is our everything and we are his.
I always get emotional around the time of his Birthday (as I do with his sisters too). I reflect back on the times that have gone and i’m upset those moments and days are over. I have cherished everything and I’ve not hurried one minute to speed up yet the time has still whizzed by. I can’t believe another year has passed and moving closer to the time when i’m going to have to let him go off to pre-school and eventually school!
This year however will be sad because it’ll be the first year he will be spending without seeing his grandparents whom he absolutely adores. We will be on Face Time to them today so we can ‘be together’ as he opens his presents this morning and then again later on today when we all sing Happy Birthday as he blows out his candles. We will be spending the day with his Auntie & Uncle though, who he is also very close too. It’s just bittersweet we’re not altogether. Hopefully next year we will and with the exciting new addition of his baby cousin.
To my dear son
Thank you for providing three perfect years
Thank you for being you,
Thank you for being the one to heal previous scars from my first labour,
Your entrance to the world helped me forget the previous time,
You are developing into such a lovely little boy,
a caring, loving, gentle natured little boy,
I stand and watch you sleep at night and I still can’t believe you are mine,
I enjoy every day I spend with you, you’re like my little buddy,
we’ve done some new adventures recently and i’ve been glad to have you by my side,
ready to ‘High Five’ me when we’ve accomplished them.
I wish you a very Happy 3rd Birthday, I hope you have a super day & feel like a superstar all day … because today is your day.
Love you to infinity x
