A 5th Birthday Letter to my Little Man

To my beautiful boy,

I seem to have blinked and you’re 5. 5 years ago today I had been induced and in labour for the best part of 2 days until you arrived kicking and screaming via c-section. You were 10lbs 6oz and so long; so much of you to love.

And here we are 5 years later on another birthday. A birthday which for the first time ever you have had to go to school, something you are not very happy about.  Being 4 has been a tricky age for you; understanding your emotions, learning to share your life with your baby sister and starting school. But other than a few major minor tantrums hiccups you have stepped up to it all and I am so proud of you.

Our family has had to suffer the sadness of baby loss and you have most definitely been my sunshine baby. The sunshine before the storm and you, my little sunshine have kept me going through the hardest of times. You are too little to understand the enormity of that but when you are older I will make sure I tell you. How for a while you became the strong one in our family without even really realising.

Watching you grow up is a pleasure and I am sure it will continue to be so. You are bright, funny, incredibly cheeky and most of all loving. You told me only last night that I was your best friend. I hope it stays that way.

So here is to being 5 and some changes in our house which I think you will like.

Keep smashing it Little Man.

Love Mummy xx
