Birthday posts for my children have usually been written on my personal blog. But, because this blog has become more of the family blog, it no longer makes sense.
Especially when it comes to this little guy.
Most of what he knows and understands is the present.
And now, in that present, he is 5.
My heart aches and swells at the thought of it.
We – Declan and I, talked, last night, as he was falling asleep, about what I was doing the night before he was born.
The fact that he was weeks early, despite the fact that my body was not ready.
I was stressed a good part of the last month. Convinced I would birth him on the side of the road.
Yet, he managed to be born safely.
My body will never carry another babe. He completed that stage of my life.
An exclamation mark at the end of the sentence: he is sunshine and silliness. Fun and laughter. Joy and passion.
Happy 5th Birthday, Declan.
