Now you are two!

Gosh that was quick can't believe Christmas is over and were heading into 2009 hope you all had a fab Christmas I've been looking around blog land and everyone seems pretty quiet I suppose were all easing ourselves back into the swing of things after all the Chrimbo madness. Well we had a lovely Christmas the kids were happy and overwhelmed with all their presents Christmas morning we had my parents and Grandma over for breakfast and we had our pork pie and poachers pickle a tradition in our family that we have always done do you know anyone else you does this? Then we went over to my sister-in-laws for dinner which was fabulous to not to have to cook and just enjoy the day. Then Boxing Day Elliot turned 2 yes it was his birthday so we did presents all over again and had family over for drinks and birthday cake! Our baby is growing into a little boy and a gorgeous boy we are so proud of you, you are changing every day and a lot at the moment as you are starting to put sentences together and doing lots of talking. I can remember wondering what sort of personality you would have when we had you and you have turned out to be so loving your always there for a kiss and a cuddle, your a proper boy and a cheeky mischievous one too and you never fail to make me and everyone around you laugh. Although sometimes I can be pulling my hair out at times when your up to no good like the number of time's I've caught you kneeling on top of the tv unit licking and putting your hands all over our plasma tv or when you've helped your self to the 4th yogurt in a row from the fridge and spilt it all over the floor and many other no no's too many to mention but on the other hand I will be smiling and laughing in the next moment with your charming ways.
You are a pleasure to look after and I feel like I have the best job in the world being your mummy. We had an awful year the year I found out I was pregnant as Steven also found out he had thyroid cancer and had to have two operations. So it was a year of worry and stress but we were told that Steven was going to be ok and he longed for you to be a boy. So it was the bestest news and most wonderful blessing that we had a boy after everything we had been through.

Emily is so happy to have a little brother it melts my heart to see you play nicely together I hope you will always be this close that's why we had you close together. Of course you argue but I don't know any brother and sister that doesn't I can imagine when your older being quite protective over your sister. As your quite bashful and stand up for yourself now where as Emily is more gentle and quiet.
Happy Birthday Elliot mummy and daddy are so looking forward to every moment and experience with you in 2009 now you are two. x x

Hope your little boy had a great birthday yesterday! My youngest turns two in April and I'm not really looking forward to it as you kind of have to admit they're a child and not a baby any more don't you :(

I didn't realise your little girl was the same age as mine, it's so horrible thinking about them going to school isn't it? We can console eachother as the day draws nearer :( I don't know if it's because I know she's not mine for all that much longer but I'm really trying to treasure the time and make some good memories of this time.

That was the nicest post I have read in a long time. It was very nice. So glad to hear your husband got well and was rewarded well for his efforts! Your children look lovely. I think you post for the same reason as I do - more diary than sharing with other people. I like the discipline of the blog to make me write it down. I just wished I had been blogging when my first was born 9 years ago - can't blame myself though blogging was invented then!!!!

Have a great weekend.

Love Emma xxxxx said...

I just reread my comment. It sounds a bit mean - I do like sharing and love everyone leaving comments etc - what I should have said what motivates me to write is the recording it all aspect. I hope that sounds better. I hope I am not digging myself a big hole!

Love Emma (again!)

That has to be the cutest baby photo, that’s all I ever wanted was a baby with hair, both mine were bold.
A belated happy birthday!
