|Sweet jesus, check out my hair! This would have been around 6-8 weeks before he arrived.|
Bless him! And he's been as good as his word, I still get hugged!
This is Tom and I on the Tuesday after he was born, so he would be 2 days old. Note to new mums, shopping trips with a toddler & a 2 day old are never going to end well!
I look so young!
|Emily was very proud of her baby brother.|
|Tom was possibly slightly less enamoured of his big sister.|
|In the PeterRabbit outfit his grandma and grandad bought him, aged about 11 days.|
|And that boy is his daddy!|
Oh he was gorgeous, those chubby little cheeks!
With his big sister.
|Matching chubby cheeks and gormless expressions!|
|Oh god, I can feel this smooth little head, which was prefectly hand sized, oh I miss him this small!|
These melt my heart, his 2nd Birthday when the Thomas the Tank Engine craze was at its height!
With his friend Joel, making good use of my new tea towels in the playgroup nativity!
My favourite ever photo of Tom, taken when he was about 3 at playgroup, bless him he had cried and cried and the photographer was getting to the end of his patience and I decided to say the one thing that at the time that could make Tom laugh without fail "Donald, where's your trewsers?" in a very poor Scottish accent - I said it, he smiled and the photographer got the pic, if you look close up you can still see the remains of a tear in his eye!
The blond curls from his first hair cut, clearly making sure he was looking nice for our trip to Cornwall for his first Christmas. The next day he knocked one of his first teeth out and we had an emergency trip to the dentist to try and cement it back in, it didnt work and you can see the gap in his smile in the pic above!
And now my baby looks like this:
My gorgeous baby has become a handsome man.
Happy Birthday Tom! xx
