I say it with every year that passes, as I’m sure most parents do (including my mum despite my sister and I being in our thirties), but I can’t believe my boy is six! Whilst the days can sometimes drag by, the years have flown and it only seems like yesterday that we brought our little man home from hospital, with his crinkly old man face, in a car seat first used by his big sister to a lovely welcome from my sister and my mum who had been waiting all day for us.
He is easy going, just like his daddy, and always has a smile and cuddle at the ready, especially for his mummy who shares his secret of ‘I love you and you love me, but don’t tell anyone as they will laugh at me.’ Woe betide anyone if he doesn’t like something or want to do something, however, as he is stubborn as a mule when he wants to be and is often being warned for paddying and sulking, a trait he *may* have picked up from his mummy.
He is our little blonde boy who completed our family and brings us many a laugh. He is Playstation obsessed, particularly with Minecraft, he is currently into Pokemon and when he’s not watching Minecraft videos, he will be watching Ash and Pikachu instead. He loves his food, as he has done right from the get-go, however he is having tummy trouble right now so we are trialing a gluten-free diet, much to his dismay.
Today we are celebrating with a small group of friends at a local water park, which he has been excited about for weeks. We will watch him tear open his presents this morning, his face a spectacle of awe about even the smallest present – he has the best reactions. Mummy will photograph every moment whilst daddy plays referee (and possibly swimming coach, if the need arises), and we will all come together to celebrate our little man.
We are so proud to be your mummy and daddy and are excited to see what the future holds.
