We did it. Whoop go team Edwards. One whole year of being parents to two boys, to being a family of 4. We made it. A little older, a little more stressed, a little more less money but so much more love.
We have watched you grow from a little bundle into a walking baby. We have watched from a little thing that dependant solely on us to lift you,carry you, rock you, feed you, hold you to a mini person who is finding his independence, who is such a explorer, who still wants to be held and carried but knows what he wants.
We have watched our boys become brothers. It was a shaky start and M was not too sure what was happening but your relationship and friendship has grown. Sure it's not always perfect and we got lots of MUM HES BREAKING MY TOYS. But in time that will come. N will learn to play and build and be like his big brother. Both of you are so pleased to see each other after your days apart. Your both learning to share, to not snatch and that you can wait for things.
Seeing N grow into a little boy is wonderful. He's such a happy little thing. Loves to be off and exploring. Walking around Usually forging for food of the floor! Damn raisins!! He's a funny little thing and loves to laugh and giggle and be oh so silly!
We have adapted our lives into ones that contains both boys. Supplying them both with time and love and attention. Switching from talking about one to talking about two.
N is adorable and I am now a fully fledged card carrying mother to a boy and toddler. My boys keep me busy and being a mum of two - well that is just special.
Still there are days I cannot believe they are mine, the this is my life, that I am a mum. I am not perfect, neither are they but together we are getting through each day. Thats what counts.
