To my Rory Bear
So yesterday you turned one and I can honestly say I don’t know where that year has gone. It feels like only yesterday that I held you in my arms for the first time, taking in every little bit of you, panicking when you were whisked away from us and holding you through that first night as you struggled to adjust to the outside world. From the moment you crash landed in to the world three weeks early, you turned our life upside down in the best possible way!
It has been amazing to watch you grow and change over the past year and every new milestone has made me swell with pride. I can’t tell you how much I have loved watching you experience new things, like the first time we went to the beach and you experienced sand and wiggled your toes right down in to it and swished your hands through it. There are so many moments where I just want time to stand still so I can keep you little for that bit longer and protect you from this crazy world, but with every day that passes I am amazed at how quickly you learn and take things in. Just today, you started blowing us kisses and my heart melted again!
As you turn one, the thought of the adventures we have ahead of us fills me with excitement. I can’t wait to see you walking, exploring on your own, learning new words and becoming even more of a funny, cheeky little chap.
Daddy and I couldn’t be more proud of you or love you any more than we do. We are so lucky to have you in our world and you only have to look at all the people that came to share your special day yesterday to see how many people care for you and are enjoying seeing you grow as much as we are.
Here’s to the next year little one, let’s hope it doesn’t fly by quite as fast as this one! But just in case it does, let’s continue to make the most of every single moment we get to spend together!
Lots of love and cwtches
