Little Man....

I know the little man in my life can drive me mad sometimes, but Master. Poppins you really are the most precious, sweet, adorable, funny, talented, gentle, handsome, polite, friendly, and loving little thing I know.

It is hard to remember that your Daddy's wedding ring could have been your little bracelet when you born 11 weeks early. I so wish I had been awake to see you born but know they had to get you out quick. Daddy had been sent home and was called back the minute he stepped through the front door, he got there as you were being wheeled out of theatre.

You were like a little bird, a little bird that needed nurturing.

Looking into Daddy's eyes.

Every time I held you I didn't want to put you back.

I wanted to hold you forever.

Special time with your big sister.

Your delicate little face.

Having a joke with your daddy.

I know it was getting you down being in the SCBU and you wanted to be home, but you were being well looked after by all the kind nurses. It made us all giggle when we saw your little gesture in this photograph.

Even the premature size baby grows looked humongous on you.

Your fist day out in some fresh air.

And look at you now Master Poppins, I am so proud of how far you have come, now 2, a big boy and a very happy, most of the time ;) little boy.

I love with you with all my heart, you mean the world to me and I ....well I wanted to tell you that, so you don't forget how much I love you.

And if your big sister is reading this, well, you know I love you too, you are my little princess, a mini me ;) Well almost, as my tantrums can give yours a run for their money.

    Your little boy reminds me of my eldest, he had the same haircut at that age and a stripy cardi like that. I wish he'd never decided to cut his hair - i lost my little boy that day!! Still now i have a handsome young man (as he prefers!!)

  15. that is so lovely :-)

    my daughter was 7 weeks premature and very ill when she was born. They kept her in for a whole month. Your post has brought back memories of the smallest newborn nappies being too big, and us being so impressed when she began to feed just 1ml of milk at a time!

    Glad to hear your little one (like mine) is now big and happy and full of energy :-)
