Twenty years ago we welcomed this little boy into our lives. He came with lots of firsts. He wasn't our first child, he is number three, but he was the first boy we had ever had. The first fairhaired child and the biggest baby we had ever had at 4.76kg. He was also the longest baby we had had. He liked to sleep a lot. (Another first!) He slept all night every night from the day this photo was taken (the day we brought him home from hospital.)
He is still the longest in our family at 6'4". He doesn't like to sleep much anymore. If you get up in the middle of the night you are likely to bump into him. Or him and his sisters who frequently sit around the kitchen table midnight feasting and talking. So, Mr 19, happy birthday. Welcome Mr 20. Oh! By the way, it's December! Roll on Christmas!
