Very Nearly….


It’s Jude’s 1st birthday tomorrow, and I really cannot believe it.  People say: “Really he’s never going to be 1, that’s flown hasn’t it?” mmmm find that one hard to answer, as I can quite honestly say, I have never experienced a year like this last one.  I could give it many many descriptions, such as rollercoaster, unbelieveable, draining, rewarding, trying.  I could go on, however the main point to remember is: We are ALL still standing, together as a family.  A family that I am very very proud to be part of.  And I know that I am lucky to have three (or should I say 4) wonderful boys.  Lets just hope that this next year is slightly less eventful. 

I took a video of Jude the other night, apologies to all for my dreadful voice on it.  But I hope everyone who looks at it gets to see my special little man smiling and cooing.

  1. How sweet! I think he has an “accent” even in his coo-ing! *wink*

    Agreed…on how very long a year like the past can feel. But there is something to be said for coming out the side…and still standing together! Stronger even…

    Happy birthday little man!

  5. Happy Birthday to Jude for tomorrow, you’ve had one hell of a year but coped amazingly well, well done to all of you. I remember breathing a massive sigh of relief on Patrick’s 1st birthday and just thought ‘we’ve got here, he’s made it to one!’ and ‘how have we crammed so much into one year? he’d had more hospital visits and examinations in his first year than I had in nearly 30! But despite all they go through, they’re both still smiling so as Mums we can take some comfort that although we can’t take it all away, we must be doing something right! Jude is a very special, strong little boy and a credit to you all, I hope you have a fab day tomorrow, thanks for sharing the video, it’s gorgeous! xx

  6. Many Happy Returns of the day. Loads and loads from all of us in Year 4

  7. The video melts your heart! Wow what a wonderful present to the whole family on Jude’s first birthday. Well done to all and often it is the hardest and mos testing of times that bring you closer as a family. Jack is a blessing to ours, because when you put all the useless stuff aside that we all seem to needlessly worry about, nothing is more important than the health and happiness of those you love.

    Happy No.1 Jude. xx
