Of course, you and your cousin take up a fair bit of time and energy, so the adults in the equation had to work pretty hard to make sure that you were getting everything you needed, in between making sure that we kept our faces fed. Certainly, there were culinary highlights that you may not at this stage appreciate, being a devotee of Chateau Boob '05, but give it time and I'm sure you'll be joining us at the table for such features as Fabulous Aunt Jann's Coq au Vin with mashed taters.
Having that much fun, punkin, is hard work, and so today for most of us was a chance to wind down a bit and take some time to ourselves. Your dad filled his time with videogames, your mum played with her foodblog (no link yet, it's not ready). Your grandad snoozed on the couch and your grandma went shopping. Your aunts Marie and Anne and your cousin Declan spent the day on the Big Silver Bird in Sky.
And Rae and Tony had a tiny bebe boy while we were carousing. Welcome to the gang, Albert. I think Ferris Bueller said it best...
"Life moves pretty fast. You don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it."
Love you, and your mum, and your Grandparents, all 43 of them. And your cousins, your aunts and uncles and your godparents and our friends and, well, basically everyone except the English Cricket Team.
