Tonight as I put you to bed, I realised it would be the last time you would sleep in your bed as an only child. 

This weekend you’ll be staying with your grandparents, as you often do on weekends, and if your baby brother doesn’t arrive before I’ll be induced to have him on Sunday. In which case you might end up staying with grandparents a little longer. 

I’m sure that’s not going to be too much of a hardship with all the extra milky bar buttons you’ll be spoiled with! 

I’m excited that we’re going to have another little member of the tribe, and that you’re going to have a little sidekick to grow up with. 

But it was still a bittersweet feeling, knowing that my first baby is going to be a big brother. 

You’re still only little yourself (I know, I know, you’re a big boy but you’re still our baby!) but I hope you know that we will love you just as much as we always have no matter how different things might be. 

Tonight the bedtime routine went completely out the window, and I squeezed myself in beside you and cwtched you until you fell asleep. 

You won’t remember tonight, but I will. 

We love you so much G

Lots of love, Mum & Dad xxx

  1. This is beautiful. I had to take a deep breath and stiffen my upper lip. First borns will always hold that special place in your heart but they do not remember being an only child. I am glad you had an extra cwtch and can’t wait to meet the new baby #Blogtober16
