On Monday Burton will celebrate his 4th birthday. Sunday we will be holding a party for his friends and on the day itself we will have family over for the cutting of the birthday cake. Not quite two parties, but two celebrations at least. So I have spent the last few weeks thinking up party food and birthday cake ideas and still not quite believing that my first born is about to turn 4 years old!!!
I remember back to his first birthday and feeling the same way that my little precious baby boy was on the cusp of turning one year old, and thinking how fast those first 12 months passed by. I felt quite emotional back then at how fast time with my baby was passing by – see nothing changes three years on!
It is funny to think that was the first and only birthday Burton had as an only child. I did not know it back then but I was actually in the very, very early stages of being pregnant again. We always said that when Burton turned one we would think about having another baby, but as it happened the other baby came along much quicker!!
However, that birthday back then on that 15th July 2010,it was all about our number one boy (as in born first!) and it was a very special birthday for all of us, his parents and his grandparents who all shared his first birthday.
We had a little party for him in the afternoon with friends and family and Burton took it all in his stride and was not really bothered by what was happening around him – he just did his own thing and watched all that was going on with interest. He couldn’t walk and he did not say any words back then so he was always a bit of an outsider looking in when it came to social situations with other children around.
My beautiful blonde haired, blue eyed boy how I loved him so back then. Of course I love him still now and more and of course my Jenson. However, back then Burton was the love of my life and I was thankful every single day for having such a perfect and amazing little boy.
I was sad back then that our first year together was coming to an end and that he would soon become a toddler and no longer my baby, but I was proud of the happy and healthy boy he had become and I was looking forward to the new challenges and miles stones he would over come and we would face together.
Who knew that when I held him at the end of this first ever birthday, that in less than a year he would become a big brother and I was able to have two amazing loves of my life.
