Today you turn two. At 7:33pm to be exact. I remember your birth like it was yesterday. Well I remember bits and pieces, like telling the midwife it was starting to hurt and that I was going to go home. She didn't let me and you came flying out 12.5 hours after my labour began.
I'll never forget seeing you for the first time, you were huge! It was love at first sight. Although exhausted I stayed awake just watching you sleep. I couldn't keep my eyes off you. I understand what people mean when they say you don't know what love is until you have a child. I've loved you from the moment I found out I was pregnant and everyday I love you more.
This has been a big year for all of us my little prince.

|First photo shoot of two|
The first photo shoot was for Agoo Clothing which was shot at a Lavendar farm. Wow. You were on your best behaviour thanks a lot to Tan and her wonderful son who you just loved. You had so much fun. The photos can be found under Baby Boy - Winter on the Australian website.
The second photo shoot can be found here.
|First trip to Sydney and the zoo|
We also went on your first visit to a zoo at Taronga Zoo. You love animals! We watched the seal show and you couldn't believe it. You also loved the lions and elephants. We also went to the aquarium. You love fish. Actually, you love all kinds of animals and nature. Your mother's child.

In this BIG year you've also experienced three floods. The first one was only small but it looked and sounded massive. It was while we were living where they let out the dam water.
The second one was bigger but still small compared to the third one. We had fun going down the back to the park (your park) and seeing the water take over.
The third flood was the big flood of Brisbane. We were away when it began but came back just before the peak. We'd moved into the house we are in now. The old house nearly went under but luckily it, and everything valuable was saved. Our suburb was hit as were the suburbs surrounding us. We went for a walk the day after the peak and thanked the universe that we didn't move into the other units we were offered as they were under. I will forever be grateful for our intuition.

|First trip to NSW|
|First trip to NSW with cousin Isobel|
On the first trip down you got to play with my cousin Isobel. You loved her, Aunty Lina and Uncle David. You cuddled up to Uncle David and stole his army men. You and Isobel wet the whole bathroom during your baths with you the main instigator. Blame daddy.

No matter what haircut you get you are still adorable in my eyes, my handsome little munchkin.
Every day I am prouder and prouder of you. Words cannot express the love I feel for you. You are my world.
