I remember the afternoon I took these photos of you, at 17 months old. We had a rare opportunity to wander to the park without those two big brothers and you relished in the undivided attention of your mumma. I watched you sit confidently at the top of the slide, King of the world, but I panicked a little as I edged away to take the photos, wondering when you’d start to slide and how quickly I could run to catch you at the bottom. I needn’t have worried. As per usual, you are infinitely capable.
Now as I retrieve these images from our hard drive over two years later, your beautiful eyes and joyful smile still light up my world. Each day I wonder if it’s possible to love you anymore than I do and, as sure as the sun rises, the love grows. With each day, I am more blown away by your awesomeness and I thank my lucky stars I am allowed to be your mum.
Love you, Nicholas Love x
