Happy first Birthday to my darling little boys.
This is the first chance I’ve had to say it – I’ve spent most of the week cradling your flu-ridden little heads on my chest and covered in snotty green slime and festy yellow pus.
Thank you for a wonderful, topsy turvy, magical year and for teaching me how strong I am and capable of loving, even with only two hours sleep. Your cheeky smiles and sweet kisses make it all worth it.
To watch how you interact with each other – already fighting over the same toy, lovingly stroking each others heads and holding hands, competing for me to pick you up first, racing each other up the hallway, laughing hysterically at your sister – is incredible. Your papa and I are very lucky to have you in our lives.
Please will you start sleeping through the night now? Love Mama xx
