To my darling Arthur, I cannot believe it has been two months since we met you I cannot believe it has been two months since the moment I first held you in my arms. Wet, sticky and new. You were covered all over with baby vernix and I was so shocked at how much you had all over you when you were born, I was also shocked at all the hair you had and how very small you felt in my arms.
Its crazy how easily I forgot the fragile and vulnerable nature of a newborn and holding you for the first time felt so new. I remember how you cried so much and I just wanted to hold you close.
Those first few moments of your birth still so vivid in my mind, one of the most special days of my life. I have a few, the day I married your dad, the day I had your big sister and your big brother and now I get to add you to that very special list. How lucky am I?
And now look at you, two months old and thriving. I cannot be more thankful to have you. You are the most chilled out baby and you make life so very easy for me. You hardly ever cry and when you do it is usually because you are hungry or need to go to sleep. You don’t usually cry for anything else at all. Everybody comments on your peaceful nature and how quiet you are. I mean it when I say every single day with you is an absolute dream, I am still waiting for somebody to pinch me and wake me up.
Being the third child you just slot right into our lives and every day I find myself lugging you around on all our trips, appointments and Sophia and Archies after school clubs. But you don’t mind at all and you just take it all in, you are my little travel buddy we go on all the errands together and I love lifting your sleeping little self tucked so cosy in your carseat and clicking you onto your pushchair. I proudly stroll you around and every day I fall more in love with your little face and baby bird hair.
Both your brother and sister are completely besotted with you and care so much about you. It is lovely to see.
When we have no jobs to do and we spend the day at home, it is just so lovely to get that one on one time with you. Although you do still sleep for most of the day when you are awake you smile at me and coo at me and it makes my heart melt. I have burst into tears looking at your cute little face and your smile a fair few times and its the most loveliest feeling to cry over you.
I mean it when I say you have completed our family and brought us all even more happiness then we ever thought possible. Its not only been the most amazing experience for me and your dad but for Sophia and Archie too.
Sophia is that much older where she is able to be really hands on and helps me out lots changing your nappies, and holding you you while I get us all ready for the school run mornings. Its lovely for Archie now that he is a big brother and he can lift and hold you he loves holding you and kissing you and touching you and that makes me so happy.
When I sit down and really think about it, that I have three children, that I am responsible for three of you, three lives other then myself, it feels slightly surreal i’ll be honest. But here I am and I honestly I love it, I love everything about being a mum of three, I feel so full I could burst, I have full hands and my heart is oh so full with the most powerful love I have ever felt for all three of you.
Our family has grown and I just love that. I spend my days in this little bubble of happiness and I just love spending my days with you Arthur watching you grow and getting to know you. Happy Two months little boy, I love you so much.
