Happy Birthday my darling Oliver: I can't believe two years have passed since our baby boy arrived into the world, Happy Birthday my darling Oliver...
I remember before Oliver arrived my brothers friends had a baby and were telling us how we would never know exhaustion like it, we naïvely could not understand what they meant. How could a tiny adorable baby be so tiring,.. We laughed tonight about our conversation, about how little we knew how our lives would change & how we never understood how our lives would be enriched. Yes we no longer spend Saturday snoozing through until lunch-time, we no longer frequent beautiful restaurants and I never thought I would actually leave the house without brushing my hair. However the smiles, the cuddles and the unexpected Mumma I love you's are worth far more then anything I could have ever imagined.
The other evening I was moaning about the ever increasing number of lines around my eyes & as Ben quite rightly said, it's the lack of sleep & all of the laughing, be happy you've earned them!
Happy Birthday my darling son & thank you for the laughter lines... Michelle X
