To my dearest darling two year old
To my dearest, darling Harrison.
You are two years old. How on earth are you already two years old?
It seems like it was only 5 minutes ago that you were a newborn. The anonymous ‘they’ always tell you to savour every minute because it goes by so fast and they are so right! Yet, I can’t remember life before you, what did me and your father do with our time when we didn’t have you to make us smile, (or rip our hair out)?!
You are growing into a beautiful child, inside and out. It’s rare I go a day without someone telling me how gorgeous you are! I feel like I hit the jackpot of model-esque children. More importantly, you have a beautiful soul. So kind, so loving, so gentle. You may be able to cuddle a newborn constantly but the feeling that gives is nothing compared to you coming running at me, throwing your arms around me and squeezing like you haven’t seen me in days! Or when you sit next to me and stroke my hair! Of course, you are a two year old, you have your moments of toddler tantrums but most of the time you are so cheeky with your mischief making that I still find myself laughing.
Your dad is so much better than me with the heart felt emotional messages but just know, I love you. I love you more and more each day and you make my heart squeeze! I can’t wait to carry on waiting you grow up and learn and turn into a little boy. Although if you could please slow it down a little that would be great.
You will always be my little baby boy.
Lots of love Mama
