You Came With The Snow

Monday, February 01, 2016

Dear Zachy,

One year ago you came with the snow. As the thick white flakes fell from the sky you entered the world and made us the happiest people alive. You turned our two into a three and made us into a our very own family. You showed us a love we never knew existed.

Tonight is the last night before you turn one. Tomorrow when you wake we will be celebrating your very first birthday. It feels as though time has flown, and yet, it's as if you've always been here. We can't imagine life without you anymore.

This past year has been magical, exhausting, exciting, wonderful and bloody hard work. Looking after a baby is no easy task, but we wouldn't change a second. You've made this the best year of our lives, and we can't wait to see what the future brings and what adventures we will travel together.

We are so proud of you. You are so strong, physically and mentally, for such a little soul. You thrive on independence. You are cheeky, funny and wonderfully happy with the world's biggest smile. You are so easy going and mild tempered. You are such a dream.

You have so many funny quirks; you will only eat vegetables if they are in curry sauce, you love to throw anything and everything into the bath tub and you wave at the fairy lights in your bedroom. You bring so much joy to our lives.

I'm sure that this next year will be just as wonderful as the first has been. We will continue to stand by your side as you grow from a baby to a boy. We will still love you with all our hearts, and will be there to kiss you every time you fall (even though you hate kisses).

We truly will love you forever,
Mummy and Daddy xxx


  1. Happy Birthday, little Zach!
    I know this must be such an emotional day for you, Mama <3 I get tears in my eyes thinking of my own son's upcoming first birthday. They will always be our babies-even though time goes so fast. (:

    1. Thank you! I actually found the day after to be more emotional! It's so exciting but so sad too! xx

  2. This is so beautifully written Chantal! I honestly welled up a bit reading this xxxx
