12 Weeks Old

Monday, April 27, 2015

Dear Zach,

Today you are 12 weeks old which feels like such a massive milestone! I don't know why, perhaps because it signifies a year since you were conceived and our lives were changed forever, for the best of course. Every day you seem to be getting older and you're developing so quickly, right before our eyes.

If I'm honest though the past two weeks have been hard. We think you've had a bit of a growth spurt, and combine that with a stomach bug and a cold the past fortnight has been pretty tough going. But while we were all feeling sorry for ourselves, we went and met baby Ella, who at two weeks old reminded us that actually it's definitely not as hard as the newborn stage. We can't wait to see her again, it's so lovely to watch you with other babies.

You also spent time with baby Zoe this week who is 9 months old now. It was just the cutest thing. She laughed and smiled every time she saw you. She stroked your hand and it was so adorable! She's able to stand on her own, and is so developed. It made us realise that in just a few short months you are going to be so much more grown up. We really need to treasure each day with you, because although everything you are going to learn will be so exciting, soon you won't be our tiny baby who needs us so much.

While we're on the subject of other babies, your Aunty Holly is due to give birth any day now, and we can't wait to find out if your little play mate will be a boy or a girl! It's going to be so lovely at family events watching the two of you running around and causing chaos. And of course, as soon as they're born you'll be listening to chants of "you're not the youngest anymore".

Since last night you've been back to your normal self, and have been smiley and happy most of the time which is a true delight. I hope that this continues, as this week is sure to be another exciting one. Fingers crossed for Holly, we can't wait to meet your little one!

We love you so much, our beautiful gorgeous boy,
Mummy and Daddy xxx
