Surprised by tears (Dear baby J)


Dear Baby J,

I won't be able to call you 'baby' for much longer so I'm going to make the most of it. Now when mum's say "they are always your baby" I know what it means. 

You are 1 today. It's going too fast, I feel happy, sad, crazy and so proud all at once. 

Because we're not doing anything 'special' today (just our normal Wednesday fun - every day I have with you is special) I wasn't expecting all the feelings that have hit me.

The tears have taken me by surprise. When your daddy cuddles me and we look at you today I well up with feelings I didn't know I had and I didn't expect, maybe I hid them from myself. 

They are tears of joy and wonder and happiness. You are the most gorgeous and special person. My love for you grows every day. You are always happy, giggling and smiling and you have brought such love and wonder into our lives. We are so lucky to have you. 

I wish you the most fun and happy birthday, my baby boy. 

All my love 

Mummy

Thank you Lauren, it really took me by surprise how emotional it was to look back over the past year and think about all the years to come! We're all looking forward to seeing you soon too x
