Oliver. My first and only child. You’re one today. You’ve been in our lives for a whole year now, but it feels like you’ve been with us forever. Every single day we get to wake up seeing your beaming smile looking up at us, with your little teeth peeping through. Your smile is gorgeous. When you stretch your arms up towards us wanting to be picked up, my heart melts. We pick you up and the first thing we get is a huge good morning cuddle. They’re the best cuddles. No matter how we’re feeling or what’s happening in the world we know we always have you to make us smile.
There is not any part of you that we don’t love with all of our hearts. As soon as you entered this world one year ago we fell in love with you. You were placed on my chest and I kissed your head. I won’t ever forget that moment, the first time I saw you. I looked into your eyes, and I saw my eyes. I looked at your face, and I saw your daddy’s face. You were ours, and we were yours.
This past year we have seen you grow from a little tiny baby to a lovely confident boy. You’ve learnt so many things; rolling over, crawling, sitting up and in the past few days you’ve taken your first couple of steps. You amaze me every single day.
How was I so lucky to have such a perfect little boy. Some days you may see me struggle and you may see me cry but never forget, I love you with all of my heart and nothing will ever change that. My darling son. My Oliver.
As it’s my sons 1st birthday today, I won’t be active on social media very much (apart from the odd photo or scheduled post) as I’ll be spending the day with my little family. If you want something else to read, here’s my birth announcement last year.
I hope you all have a wonderful day <3
PS. You can now read about his birthday party here!
