|My first cuddle with him|
I'm full of mixed emotion because I am so happy to be celebrating the first year of his life but I am also a bit sad that it has gone so fast and that I will be returning to work in one weeks time.
I wrote him a little poem for his birthday card and I thought I would share it with you. I am not much of a poet and I hated poetry at school so I am well aware that it isn't great but it's the sentiment that counts . . .
This last year has been a whirlwind with tears and laughter too
The good times have been many and they were all because of you
The first six months were tricky and it’s hard for me to say
But I spent most of them crying and trying hard to pray
I hoped to find a cure for colic and take your pain away
But the agony inside you was determined to stay
We gave you the name ‘Grumpinator’ as you were always in a mood
And the only thing the cheered you up was the sight and smell of food
The day we started weaning, the grumping became less
But then along came teething to put my patience to the test
But now you are so happy and it’s so nice to see
That a happier and cheerier boy, there could never be
It’s as though someone scooped out all the pain and replaced it all with joy
You truly are amazing, my sweet adorable boy
Your beautiful smile melts my heart as it stands out from the crowd
To know I helped create you makes me feel so very proud
So as we celebrate your first birthday I just wanted you to know
Just how glad I am to know you and that I love you so.
Happy birthday my wee darling!
