To begin with, im just going to post random, old pictures of you, ones which mean something to me. Although to be fair, every picture of you means something to me, im sure you’ll know that when you see the hundreds of photo albums i’ve bought just to fit all the pictures in! Having you was the best and most beautiful experience of my life. I was 19 when I fell pregnant with you, but I didnt regret it for one minute. Mummy and Daddy loved you from the moment we found out about you. You brought us closer together, and the minute you were born, we were the happiest we had ever been. Daddy nearly almost shed a tear (which is bloody rare!) when you finally came after 10 hours of labour, or 2 days if you know the truth and not what they wrote in your records haha! You were the most beautiful thing id ever seen in my life, I didnt want to ever let go of you from the moment they handed you to me. The first night, while we were in hospital, you slept for most of the night, only waking up twice. In the morning, I couldnt bear for you to be in the cot any longer, and I ended up picking you up and just holding you sleeping in my arms for hours. When we finally got to take you home, I didnt want to sleep, I just wanted to spend every waking minute with you. You were such a good baby, you slept through the night from about 3 weeks! It was amazing. You lost quite a bit of a weight though, and the doctors told me I had to keep waking you up to feed you, as you were such a skinny little thing when you were born, you hardly ever cried because you were hungry! We had to feed you every 4 hours, and this sure worked, because the week after theyd weighed you at 7lb 2oz, you were a massive 9lb! From then on, you ate and ate and ate! Its done you well though, because now at 7 months, although you dont enjoy milk as much as you used to, you sure do love your food. Weve had our ups and downs, you’ve cried and you’ve laughed. I wish I’d started this earlier so I could have written about your first tooth (which you got at just under 5 months!) or your first smile, your first holiday (Menorca when you were 5 months!) and the first time you started rolling over, or attempting to crawl backwards! Ive had so many amazing moments with you, I love to watch you grow, and I cant wait to see you grow up even more! I love you with all my heart.
