Happy Birthday Sticky Baby!

Today our little boy turned 1. Incredible.

The big day wasn't quite what we had in mind. Sticky Baby is sick. The morning was spent at the medical centre getting a prescription for antibiotics. Lots of coughing, sneezing and wheezing. Lots of tears, grumpiness and tiredness. We attempted a cake this evening and a jovial chorus of 'Happy Birthday to you'. Sticky Baby stuck his finger in the cake and then burst into tears. Great. All on camera. Will make for a great 21st birthday video montage. The photos aren't much better. He was in pjs all day and barely cracked a smile. Big crocodile tears visible in nearly all the shots. Poor bubba.

Papadada and I have decided to have a do-over in a few days. Pretend today never really happened and have a nice, germ-free celebration this weekend.

The jet lag monster is still in our midst, hence why the blog has been a little neglected of late. Apologies. I think I may have the morning 'off' tomorrow, in which case I will be typing and uploading pics like a mad woman. Yipee.

Part 3 of my flying series to come too....Beware.

Sticky Baby, we love you more than words can say. You are the beat of our hearts, the light of our lives, the froth of our cappucinnos. The best part of every day. You make our eyes twinkle, our chests swell with pride, our smiles bigger and brighter. You make us complete.

Love, mum and dad.

PS: Something weird for those of you who like weird things...I awoke this morning at 2:27am, eyes wide open. That was the exact time my waters broke, 1 year ago today. Freeaaakkkky, no? I think I even had a few phantom contractions. Although that could've been indigestion. Still, freeeaaakkky, no?

Happy Birthday to your precious son!! And yes that is freaky about waking up at 2:27!! I used to wake up startled everynight at 11:11 on the dot, I thought Sterling would be born then but no luck- maybe it will be my next baby! Hope you are enjoying your trip!!
