Happy 2nd Birthday to my Wonderful Son

2 Years ago today i gave birth to my son. At exactly 17.58 the most wonderful thing to ever happen to me happened.
My son was passed to me and love rushed through my body, a feeling like no other i had ever experienced.
Today, two years on that love is even stronger then i ever thought physically possible.
I’m so proud to be Neo’s Mummy.
I feel so lucky every day to have him as my son.
And, even though we have officially hit terrible two’s territory, I am proud of how head strong and courageous, like his daddy, he is.
Today, i have only cried once 😉
I was cooking his favourite meal (spaghetti, he loves to slurp it up) in the kitchen, he ran out to me and into my arms. I picked him and cuddled in to him and stayed that way, swaying back and fourth to the music on the radio.
The song just so happened to be one of my favourites.
Tears streamed down my face.
Music is an amazing thing, it can really hit you on such a  personal level. This song may be a love song to many.
To me, this afternoon, the lyrics resonated deep within me. Whilst holding my son i wanted that moment to last forever….
(and now im crying again, someone pass me a tissue….)

Happy birthday Light of my Life. Thank you for being my son, Neo
Love you to infinity and beyond

    Happy birthday to your Neo! It seems like such a small world when I find someone like you who was experiencing the same thing I was at the same time. My little girl just turned 2 on Sunday 🙂

    Ahh! THis post brought tears to my eyes! Especially because I made the mistake of listening to the song while I read along. haha I'm such a baby I swear! So sweet though, Rachel. Again, congrats on your baby boy and motherhood in general. I'm sure you're amazing at it.
