It has been two years since this little bean slipped peacefully into the world. His birth, like his life, has been defined by inexorable progress all made at his own speed. Mostly far too quick for my liking! This little one who is now not so little and yet very little at the same time. Today some of my lovely friends came together with us to celebrate this special little person. This boy who is, at all times, his own self.
I’ve spent two years in his company and yet this little person is still a mystery to me. So much himself, his mission in life clear to him if not to me. I marvel at his determined progress, the way he flies at things full tilt. His affection, his mental agility as well as his physical feats that thrill and terrify me. His cheeky smile that wins me over every time, his certainty of his importance among us, his place in the world right there. In the centre of our hearts.
Happy Birthday my two years boy. I love you so very much.
