Finlay and Jacob, my two beautiful, clever & hilarious boys. Where would my life be without you both? Without the constant and overwhelming happiness you bring to both mine and daddys life? You two have definitely captured our heart and souls that’s for sure.
For 4 days now my littlest has been cursed with the dreaded lurgy, his tonsils are the main culprit, and its been rough, really really rough. For days now I have been the nurse dishing out medication to a patient who is so reluctant and will do anything to make sure I don’t get the buggers into his mouth, the frantic parent taking the temperature every couple of hours praying for it to be decreasing, the worrisome mother whose desperate to get her child to drink, anything & something, in a desperate bid for my poor baby to get some form of relief, to start to smile & be my happy baby again.
It’s so easy in the blur of the days, weeks, months and years, to forget what is really the most important thing in that moment. It’s so easy to get caught up in our daily lives of cleaning, washing, cooking, and general parenting to remember what are the most important things about our children, its so easy to forget or not get time to make the most out of every single second with these little lives we have been so blessed with.
My Little baby, although sadly, you’re probably more toddler than baby, and that makes mummys heart really hurt. I think it’s because you’re probably my last baby, and the fact that you are still so tiny doesn’t help matters. You’re such a petite little man, you still fit comfortably into 9-12 months, though we are getting there slowly. You’re wearing more and more 12-18 month things these days so you are growing my darling, its just a tad on the slow side!
