slugs and snails and puppy dog's tails...

our middle child and only boy
was born seven years ago today.

clever, kind, generous and popular
rambunctious, argumentative, mischievous and stubborn
all rolled into one

a fan of cars, butter chicken, maths and his new little sister
an elfin lad who isn't the quickest, or strongest 
but makes up for it with a bountiful supply of energy and endurance

happy birthday, seanie.
if the next seven years are anything like the last
we should be so lucky.

blink of an eye...


six months.

slow down will you?

it seems as though you are growing up too quickly already


i still marvel at the lovely creature you are
with eyes that look like the sun rising over the horizon

the button nose
the impish smile that looks a lot like mine when i was your age

you're eating real food now
and loving it

you sat up on your own a few days ago
and changed your perspective of the world

i know the next new trick isn't far off
and i can't wait

love you long time, ivy moo
