Happy Birthday best Daddy xx

Yesterday Elin and Caitlin celebrated Paul's birthday with us. I still remember the first birthday Paul had after Elin was born, and how different everything was to now, yet just exactly the same. How everything changes, yet nothing changes. Strange, how life can be like that. I don't know, as we ate an identical chocolate cake to the one we ate today, made with everlasting repetitive precision by my amazing Mum, and blew out candles five years ago, if I was considering the future or what I thought things might be like in the next five years. What I do know, though, is that Elin is in a much better place than she was at eight months old. Fitter, healthier, happier, more settled. For that we are all truly thankful. Paul says it's the best birthday present he can have, Elin's good health, and I'll second that. We are never more grateful than on special occasions that we have her with us to take part in the celebrations, and will never be blasé about this, as we have been too close to those who don't share the same luck to know just how fortunate we are. Every day with you Elin is truly a blessing...and your company is the best present any parent could have on their special day. But then every day is special to us, because you are in it. Love you to the moon and back, little pickle head x
