Dear Archie,

Wow what a journey we’ve had so far. In some ways I can’t believe you’ve only been in my life for just 6 months and yet I can remember those first few weeks like they were yesterday.

Mummy had a really tough time in those early days but please know that it is not a reflection on how much I loved and adored you (and still do, of course). The moment I saw you my heart was bursting with love and I felt like the luckiest girl in the world to have everything I’d ever wanted. Long before you were born I’d dreamed of becoming a mummy. And although I was career driven and wanted to be successful in my job, I knew my life would never be fulfilled without having a child.

I am so incredibly proud to be your mummy and there are so many things I love about you but I will try to name a few…

Although you make us work hard for them, your smiles and giggles are just the best. I love finding new ways of getting them to happen – currently blowing raspberries and bouncing on the bed are winners! You have the most determined nature of any child I’ve ever known and your curious mind means you’re always looking for the next thing to explore/destroy. You absolutely love being sung to and clapped at. And despite your angry grunts and boisterous tendencies I wouldn’t change you for the world.

You are quite honestly the best thing that’s ever happened to me and although I’ll never feel good enough to be your mummy, I promise to do my absolute best to give you the life you deserve.

Love you to the moon and stars,

Mummy xx
