For one so small, you seem so strong
My arms will hold you, keep you safe and warm
This bond between us, can't be broken
I will be here, don't you cry

Cause you'll be in my heart
Yes, you'll be in my heart
From this day on, now and forever more...

(Phil Collins)

Mommy and baby fitness warmup.This was our favourite part of the workout.

You loved it as I lifted you high in the air to the swelling "you'll be in my heart"... as high as I could manage hoisting your little Buddha weight. And then lowering your giggling body as close to my chest as I could get you for a tight snuggle.

Nine years ago today, my world was changed. You brought it to a whole new level. Happy is not big enough a word to describe it.

You brought me motherhood.

We knew you were a special baby, a wonderful child.

And you're growing into such an exceptional young man.

There's a huge part of me that wants to keep you this young, lovable boy.

But there's an even bigger part of me that cannot wait to see you soar to unbelievable heights.

Knowing full well that you'll always, always come back to me for that tight snuggle.

Happy Birthday sweet child of mine.

Yay! Happy birthday to your sweet guy.

For the record, I would pay good money to see you try and do that hoist him up thing again. I'm guessing that Buddha weight has increased slightly.
