I have a 10 year old

Of course deep down I knew this day would come. Yet somehow I am still completely unprepared, and totally bewildered.

People tell you it will go quickly, but yesterday when I woke up, I was suddenly a mother of a 10 year old. I can't believe it has been 10 years. It feels like just a few moments ago that this sweet little baby was in my arms.

Right from the beginning he needed to suck something all.the.time
Oh, so small. And peaceful.

A moose present from Sweden!

3 weeks old and at his first college Toga party

Was he really that small???
My sweet baby...

I don't remember you sleeping in your bed by yourself :)

Ahh yes, that's more like it!

And that. And you get that sleeping with your arms up thing from your dad.
Family photo before your first ever Toga party. You wore a pillow case.
My dear darling Zander. You are the most amazing and special thing that has ever happened to me. Bringing you into the world was the start of the most wonderful life for me. So beautiful, special, wonderful. I love you so much, and I treasure every moment of the 10 years you have been in my life. Happy birthday my darling boy.


  1. Lovely post and some beautiful photographs - it's not good when they hit double figures, suddenly you start to feel older and you do wonder where time has gone....I had a similar realisation in october just gone when my eldest, my daughter turned 21 - now I do feel old.
