A year ago the minute this post goes live I gave birth to you, my son - the most beautiful little person I have ever seen and in that amazing moment my life changed forever, I became your mum. Remembering that very first time you were placed in my arms makes my stomach flip and brings tears to my eyes. Looking in to your eyes, kissing your head, smelling that new born baby smell I just can't put in to words how special that moment was, I will treasure that memory for the rest of my life.
I can remember that night when I was taken back to the ward and daddy had to leave us and go home. After I had been given tea and toast I held you again and we started to get to know each other. I barely slept that night I just couldn't take my eyes off you even though you slept soundly all night I woke so many times just to have a little look at my beautiful baby and just to listen out to you breathing. It makes me feel so full of love just thinking back to that time.
This past year has been completely amazing watching you grow from a baby to a little boy, seeing you learn new things and being with you to witness all of your firsts so far has been amazing and I'm so looking forward to watching you continue to grow and learn new things as you get older.
I apologise now if I cry a little tomorrow but part of me is sad that your baby year is over, I just feel so sad that time is going so fast I just wish that I could just slow time down a bit. I am also excited to see what your second year brings to see your cheeky personality flourish.
Happy Birthday darling I hope your day is filled with happiness, fun, cuddles and love you are our special little boy daddy and I love and adore you with all of our hearts.
All my love
