13th January 2017.Today my baby boy turns 4.
Happy birthday James.
You were delivered into this world unexpectedly at 9.23pm via emergency c section on a Sunday night.
To be totally honest I wasn't ready for you. We all knew you would arrive early, you tried to come out at 31 weeks, again at 33 weeks and our amazing OB kept you in there until 36 weeks.
There was so much worry about you. You were a footling breech, your legs were wrapped around your neck, as was your umbilical cord. Your weight was lacking. When you arrived you didn't cry, you grunted. You were whisked pretty quickly away from me... Daddy was by your side every step of the way.
It wasn't the perfect pregnancy and it wasn't the perfect delivery, BUT you my beautiful brown eyed boy are PERFECT in every single way!
My fondest memory of the hospital is all the nurses from the ward coming in to see you all day and all night... they were smitten with your beauty. Word got out that you had the most incredible dimple... a dimple that gets you out of a lot of trouble still to this day.
We've had a difficult road kid.
But I got you!
Today, tomorrow and always.
You have the most beautiful soul James.
Your smile lights up the room.
You are incredibly intelligent... the things you know at your age blows our mind!
I love you so much baby boy. Happy 4 years. The things you have achieved to this day make me incredibly proud, things on paper they said may never be possible. Meh.. what do they know!!!!
You are determined and focused. I can't wait to see what else is in store. I will be right here, whenever you need , admiring your spirit and offering my support.
Forever your Mummou
