A letter to my youngest son

To my youngest son.

.

I am so glad that you were born into our already crazy world.

You came at such a time that we needed to see the good again.

The innocence that having a baby can bring.

The gentle and soft we had forgot before now.

.

Your brother is so crazy wild.

But with you he became so tender.

He was your protector.

Nobody would come between you.

.

You showed us how great it can be

To see my body move

The ripples across my tummy

To show me you are safe

.

I was nervous you would bring us stress

Into our already chaotic lives

Me and your dad, we had one each already

Could we really have one more?

.

The weeks turned into months

Your brother and sister waited

Until the day we brought you home

And then the fun began

.

Your sister had to learn to share

Your brother had to learn to wait

Your dad had to learn to divide his love

And I had to learn patience

.

You weren’t the easiest of babies

You didn’t sleep for the first year

You had severe reflux

You had to go to hospital

.

The days merged together

The medicine it really helped

You started gaining weight

Eventually you stopped crying

All day and all night

.

We got to your first birthday

And you blossomed through and through

You taught us all so much

Much more than we taught you

.

I went back to work

You settled in at the childminders

It hurt you never cried for me

Just enjoyed the new routine

.

You made so many friends

A really smiley boy

You played and sang and learnt new words

And learnt to share those toys

.

Those weeks passed by so quickly

Soon you were turning two

I couldn’t help but stop and stare

At how quickly you had grew

.

I love the little things you notice

Like your shadow that scared you so

I love how strong you are

I love that you love to cuddle

I love that you are sweet

.

You brought so much joy to our lives

Much more than you can comprehend

You don’t even know how much you saved us

And how close you made us all.

.

All my love, Mum
