happy birthday wren!
Well, the day that I’ve both been looking forward to and dreading in equal measure has finally arrived. Today, you turned one! I’ve now known you for 366 days, 18 hours, 45 minutes and 16 seconds and I have to say… the more I get to know you, the more I love you. You are by far my very favourite human. Shhh! Don’t tell daddy.
I started writing your one-year letter at the weekend and I was really hoping to post it today but there’s just so much I want to tell you and besides, I’d much rather spend your birthday dancing around the kitchen with you and playing hide and seek and blowing bubbles and meeting daddy for lunch and rolling around in bed, than staring at a computer screen for hours. I wanted this day to be all about you.
I’ve been taking videos of you almost every single day since you came into our lives. This film is a compilation of those moments. It’s been such a crazy, amazing ride. How strange to think that we’ve already come full circle, that we are about to embark on another 365-day journey around the sun together?
Thank you for giving me one of the best years of my life. I can’t tell you how much joy you’ve brought us, how much meaning and perspective.
I love watching you grow, little one. If you could just slow it down a bit, though, that would be great.
