Dear Alfie.......

I've seen several of these type of blog posts written lately and thought I'd give it go since Alfie is nearly 18 months old......where on earth did that time go?!?!


Dear Alfie, my gorgeous little boy, 

You are not a baby anymore, I still refer to you as one but you're not. Standing before me is this little boy that is independent, a chatterbox and a cheeky monkey. I'm not really sure where the past 18 months has gone but it truly has been the best 18 months of my life (if not challenging!). I'm not a religious person in the slightest but every single day I feel blessed and thankful to have you in my life, you've given me a whole new outlook on life, a more positive and happy outlook and for that I thank you (erghh god now I want to cry, being a Mummy makes me so emotional these days!). I am one of the lucky ones, truly fortunate that you're here with me.


Excuse the awful picture it was too cute not to include!
Everyday you surprise me with something new that you've learnt to do, most recently chattering away on the phone and trying to put Daddy's head set on, you now know to stroke the cats gently and not pull their tails or ears (most of the time!), you kick a football, you hum the tune to twinkle, twinkle and love dancing to Avicii and Katy Perry (great taste in music son :-)!) and lots of other cute things. 


I'm working full time now and it breaks my heart when I have to leave you with other people (even though I know you love it) but I miss that special time we spent together during the day, just Mummy and Alfie. I promise I'm doing it for you though, I want you to be proud to say my Mummy is a nurse, she works hard so I can have the best.  The one thing that makes it worth it is the way your eyes light up when you see us come home and you run to us, giggling, arms in the air wanting cuddles. 

Sometimes when you're asleep in your cot I creep up to cover your little toes with your blanket as you've kicked it off, I stay in your room for a few minutes and just watch you sleeping peacefully like an angel (that sounds so cheesy I know but you do look so angelic when you sleep!). I listen to you breathing and wonder what I did to deserve you.


So my cheeky little chappie what have you got in store for me in the next 6 months I wonder? Thank you for making my life worth living and I love you with all my heart.

  4. So cute! They move on and develop so fast in those first 18 months don't they? He will still change and develop, but never so fast and so much again.
