A letter for Sebastian
I can't quite believe that tomorrow you will turn two. Two whole years have passed since you arrived into our lives in a rather dramatic fashion.
I don't think anything could have prepared me for how much i could love another person, or for how quickly the time would fly past and how you would turn from a helpless newborn into a tantruming toddler in the blink of an eye. People do try to tell you these things, but it's hard to comprehend how true it is until you've been there.
You've grown up so much in the last few months; chatting away with real words, singing along to the radio, showing off that you know your letters and numbers and becoming such a cheeky monkey that at times you have made me laugh so hard that i cry. Wherever we go, people comment on how gorgeous you are, and how lovely you are, it's like going out with a mini celebrity! You have a real eye for the ladies already, always looking for a smile from them!
Alex arriving was a huge change for you but you've taken it all in your stride, and you are so caring to him, stroking his hair, helping us with him and entertaining him that it makes me even more proud of you(i didn't even know that was possible).
You would think after spending near enough every single minute together for 2 years that we would get bored or fed up of each other but instead the more time i spend with you the better, i don't want to miss a single part of you growing up and i feel so privileged to be around to see you change and learn new things each day. I know that when you are bigger, i won't be able to be there constantly and so i try to savour this time as much as i can.
So tonight when you are asleep, i will come and tuck you in and give you a kiss as a one year old, and tomorrow you shall wake up and be two and we shall start another year of adventures.
Happy Birthday to my beautiful boy.
