This last year has been a whirlwind.
Having two children is certainly harder than one.
I often feel you haven’t been given enough attention or the level of attention you deserve. It’s just not possible like it was the first time round.
I’ve often struggled to manage my time, to balance the two of you, to feel like I’ve been enough.
But I’ve never struggled to find enough love for the two of you.
I couldn’t love you both any more. My heart literally aches with the amount of love I have for you.
You are a hurricane. A force. A complete bundle of energy.
You are loving. You are so sweet. You are incredible.
You are constantly on the move. Climbing things, grabbing things, moving everywhere.
You drive me completely round the twist whilst you’re doing it but I can’t help but admire how amazing you are.
You can climb, you can crawl, you can walk.
You have a wicked sense of humour. You know when you’re doing something you shouldn’t be, and the cheekiest grin takes over your whole face.
You belly laugh when you pretend to bite my toes. And I can’t stop you because you’re just too cute!
You are so loving. You’re always toddling over to give cwtches and sloppy open mouthed kisses. And you say “aww” when you’re giving anyone or anything a cwtch.
You’ve been walking for a few weeks, but this last week and a half you’ve really got the hang of it. Yesterday and today you’ve been trying to pick up speed.
You have six (and a half) teeth.
You love music and you love dancing. Bobbing up and down and kicking your legs. “You’re Welcome” from Moana is a particular favourite but you just love music in general.
Only certain songs work when you’re grumpy in the car though. “I Had a Little Turtle” almost always works.
You and your big brother love each other very much but you can both give the other a decent thump. As an only child this baffles me but I’m assured this is normal. And will continue. Oh joy haha!!
You are a second child but by no means second best.
You are loved more than you’ll ever know.
Love you so much bubba boy xxx
