Dearest Rebecca, today is your birthday.
Here’s a picture of you being checked out by the midwives and being introduced to Hazel just a few minutes after your birth. I’ve been trying to write a nice post for you all day but seeing as you are two now you’ve done all you can to stop me. First there was the ice cream, then some swimming, trying to delete all your baby photos, helping yourself to the fridge and some chasing of cats.
At least we had one quiet moment with the balloons this morning, right in the room you we’re born in. Looks like you’re staying up to celebrate the exact moment of your birth at 9:15, but I’ll need you to consider going to bed right after that please.
Love Mama, and Dadi who’s out walking the dog.
PS If you ever do go to bed I’ll post some birthday party pictures along with some recipes for great salad. Doesn’t that sound nice?
