Freddie is 3.

1095 days ago I was holding you in my arms and I was finally a mommy.

You had a bent up little “boxers” nose is how I described you and as you were born your daddy told me you were a boy, and I said your name “Freddie” before I even held you. We didn’t find out what sex you were but I knew you were a boy.


Today, you are three and I am just trying to fathom how and where the time has gone so quickly. 


You have had a another tough year really, just as I was up and about walking and back at work after slipping my disc..I fell pregnant with your brother and my hyperemesis soon kicked in, followed swiftly by SPD. I couldn’t physically do much without without being in pain, but you have been so, so good with it. I have LOVED so much being back out and about with you now. 


I’m so proud of you, yes you are a little boisterous crapbag sometimes, driving me absolutely BONKERS..but you are kind, clever and so loving. You always end up making us laugh.

Most of all, you have took your biggest challenge in your little life with such ease, we welcomed your little brother Dexter to our family six weeks ago and you have been so tender and amazing with him I couldn’t have asked for more. I was so worried you would feel left out and we would miss part of your lovely personality but you have taken it in your stride. You comfort him when he cries, you entertain him and he beams when you talk to him. I couldn’t be more proud of you.


In September you are off to nursery, I can’t say I’m looking forward to it, I can’t imagine how quiet the house will be without your laughs, singing, stomping and screaming at me! You will love it though, it’s definitely going to be a challenge for me.


Enjoy your day sweetheart, everyday you find a way to make me smile 💙

  3. Happy Birthday little one, and happy birthing day to you mama! That waffle shake looks amazing! I also had SPD with my second pregnancy, it was rough. It’s amazing how fast the time goes, but how sometimes the days seem so long. ❤
