This time 2 years ago

:: I was sitting on the couch coming to the realisation that these pains were indeed contractions even though they were happening 10 days earlier than expected.

:: My husband was out playing computer games with his friends for a 'Guys Night'.

:: I was starting to panic because my mother was somewhere in the air between Korea and London and would more than likely miss the birth of her grandchild. Again.

:: I was so much looking forward to finally meeting this little one who was going to be a brother or sister for Luca. Our second born.

Little did I know that in 6 hours time I would be holding our dear little Beniamino in my arms, feeling so overjoyed, elated, grateful, truly blessed to have given birth to another son.
So many dreams and possibilities for this little life flooded my mind as soon as we saw he was a boy.
What will he be like? What will he look like as he grows? What is he destined to become? How can I best guide, nurture and love this precious life?

Little did I know how much Beni-Boo would change our family dynamics, in such a wonderful way.

Little did I know how much joy and laughter he would bring to our lives, to our household.

Thank you God for blessing our lives and this family with Beni.
He is completely adorable and unique in every way and we love him so very much.

Happy Birthday my Beni-Boo.
You have made my world a more exciting and colourful place.
I love you to the moon and back again 20 billion times.

Love from,
Mamma X
