Mummy has written me this letter…

‘Dearest darling Pickle

I cannot believe you are three years old. I am writing this letter at 8.30pm on the eve of your birthday – and three years ago I was getting ready to go into hospital (after a couple of false starts and four days of latent labour!) to finally welcome you into the world. You were born at 2.11am on 12 October 2012.

You have brought us all so much joy and happiness in the last three years, you are an absolute delight. I love you more than you will ever know, and cherish every moment we spend together. You touch my heart every day. Your sweetness, your love, your magic.

As you turn three, you are becoming a little more independent – not that you haven’t always known exactly what you want! Your sweet little voice fills the room, with your talking, or singing – which you love to do. You are such good company, we talk about everything and anything.

You have settled into play group, although neither of us really want to be apart. You start school in January – I can’t quite think about that yet. Of course I want you to grow, and live your life, but I also wish we could pause time, just for a little while. I hold you and kiss you every day, I say ‘I love you’ and you reply ‘I love you too Mumma,’ and my heart melts.

You light up everywhere you go, and you touch the hearts of everyone you meet – no one forgets meeting you.

As you turn three, and start the next part of your life, leaving your baby days behind, I want you to know how proud of you I am – proud of the gorgeous, loving, sweet natured little boy you are. I wish for you the greatest happiness, love, health and luck in all the world.

I love you little boy.

Thank you for being my son xxxx

Mummy xxxx

  7. This is adorable. I was reading recently about how parents wish they could pause time and remember moments, but writing them down does that. And through your blog you’ve captured so many of these moments so you’ll never forget them. Happy Birthday Pickle! x
