My Baby is 18 Today
My baby is 18 today.
Samuel James was born at 9.15am on Saturday Sept 14th 1991.
The day before was my husband's 26th birthday.
I remember taking the dog for a walk and looking down at my swollen stomach and thinking "How am I going to love this baby as much as I love this dog?"
I soon found out.
This photo was taken when Sam was 10 weeks old and here is the little outfit I just couldn't bear to thrown out even when it no longer fitted him.
I was on maternity leave and although we didn't have much spare cash I booked a photographer to come to our home and take some pictures so I could send them out to family and friends at Christmas.
After the photograph was taken I remember taking him out for a walk - it was a beautiful Autumn day.
There have been lots of walks and 18 Autumns since.
But where did they go?
Life has hurled a few low ballers at us during that time and I would willingly trade a few of those bad times.
But what I wouldn't swap is becoming a mum at 25.
Incidentally, this weekend we heard some other good news.
Dave, who was best man at our wedding and is Sam's godfather, became a father for the very first time on Saturday when his partner gave birth to Maria Jane.
Today I wore...
