The beautiful blue eyed, floppy haired, lopsided smile, taller than me (now) boy turned thirteen yesterday - March 28th 2013.
Never has a mum been so proud! I have to say that - being biased and all.
He came into the world with so much uncertainty, but we held strong the belief that he was meant to be here - no matter what the outcome.
And here he is!
With much determination and ambition - some of which we may not understand being a parent. A typical thirteen year old boy with dreams and notions in his head of dragon slaying and maze construction, but with wit and such cleverness - gawd knows where he gets that from - and laughter in his heart.
Happy 13th birthday young man........love you!
