Today my baby, you’re another year older.
Five years now since I held you that very first time.
I never imagined then how we’d be, how you’d be.
A few months before then I’d never imagined you, I’d never even considered having a child, never imagined myself as a mother, but there you were.
And never have I looked back.
From the moment I knew I was carrying you I loved you.
I loved you more than I’d ever loved anything in my entire life. I didn’t know what true love was until I loved you.
I’ve watched you grow year after year, in body and in mind.
You are a very curious but caring little soul.
You are so gentle, so kind and yet so strong.
You still believe that a cuddle from mummy will right all the wrongs in the world, you still believe in me. You believe in me even when I don’t.
You are my rock.
You are my calm.
You are my everything.
My perfect little man.
Happy 5th birthday, I love you back to the stars!
