Today my ‘baby’ is four. Yes, FOUR. I have no idea how that happened, how has time gone so fast? So fast that it feels stolen. I just wish, I could freeze it now and then. Because it’s so precious. Because he’s so precious.
I thought you were my last. I was told you would be and yet here we are celebrating your fourth birthday with your baby sister flip flopping about inside me.
I’m so proud if you. You’re bigger and brighter than life. You, like your siblings, are my eternal sunshine in a grey world. You’re the last thing I see before I go to sleep and the first thing I see when I awake. Your little snorts and grunts are the soundtrack to my dreams.
You’re so heartrendingly charming. You’re funny and cuddly. You’re imaginative and creative. You’re a diva and even that as frustrating as it can be, it utterly endearing.
There’s a wild magic within you. Keep it safe my darling. Never let it go.
I have nothing to give you, other than my by heart. But it’s yours. It’s yours and your siblings baby.
You four are the only part of my soul that’s still alive.
I remember the day you were born like it was yesterday. My quickest and most terrifying labour yet. One look and you bewitched me, i’m still absolutely enchanted by you and there will never be a time when i’m not. Ever.
