Memphis | 13 November 14

One year ago, at 7:11pm after a 19 hour labour, you interrupted our midwives meal break as you were ready to meet the world. 1994g, 40cm long, 4 weeks early and induced due to IUGR, our labour and delivery was very different to what we had expected. You, also, were different. You were so much smaller, so much more fragile, and way more perfect than we could ever have imagined. You are the most content, happy and loving baby. You are full of affection, with so many cuddles and big baby kisses. You love to give high-5's and you play a mean game of peeka-boo. You have a contagious smile and the most adorable giggle. You have no desire to pull yourself up or to walk, but you crawl at lightning speed. Everyone who meets you falls in love with you, you really are such a delightful child. And that's not even Mummy bias! You're such a sweet little boy. You adore your big brother and sister, and they adore you too. I cannot believe one year has passed. It's been a huge year, with lots of ups and downs. Lots of scares but way more happy times. You have been in some ways our most challenging and stressful baby (healthwise), however you have been by far our easiest, most content.
We love you so much. Thank you for being everything we could have ever dreamed of and more xoxoxox
