I am scheduling this post to publish at your time of birth – 5.06am, exactly a year after you first appeared in this world. When I went to bed the night before, I was doing pretty much what I am now – messing around on the computer, keeping an ear out for Maya stirring in her sleep. I had no clue that you would be joining us so soon. I woke up at 3am on the morning of the birth only because your sister was crying and I went to get her a drink of water – it still seems crazy to me that you were born a mere 2 hours later.
I wasn’t sure how I was going to parent a little boy before you were born. I wasn’t sure how I was going to parent two children either. So thank you for making it as easy for me as possible – from the 2 hour labour to practically sleeping through the night from birth to being the laid back happy soul you are. You have made every day a pleasure.
Happy Birthday, my little boy x
