Journalling reads: Despite all of our fears and doubts, they were quickly able to reassure us that you were exactly where you were supposed to be, complete with a tiny little heartbeat. It was very reassuring to know that at least for now you were perfectly ok. They adjusted the dates but since when has that ever been anything new for us. Your new due date is the 27th August but I very much doubt that will end up being your birthday.

Journalling reads: I know that I have never been mother of the year material. Being sick has always made things difficult for me to be the kind of mummy that I think you deserve. But you have never seemed to mind, always been happy enough with the way things are. I think that may have something to do with the fact that although Mummy is not always able to do the things she wants to do with you, she is well put bluntly a little bit crazy. Your mummy does things that most people would never dream of. Take this photo for example, Nannie Freda’s back garden was flooded thanks to the heavy rain, and it was pouring down outside. But Mummy had the smart idea to let you go outside and play in it. I took the attitude that you had wellington boots, and a really great waterproof set. A little bit of rain wasn’t going to hurt you we could always dry you off. I may sound more slightly more unconventional than crazy, did I forget to say that I decided to come out with you? I put on a pair of shoes and joined you in the garden. We jumped in the massive puddle that the concrete had become, we splashed and we made lots of noise. I made Daddy take some photos and when we were done I was soaked up to the waistband of my trousers, but it was worth it because we had so much fun!

Journalling reads: I never thought it would be something as simple as a pile of leaves, that would be the thing to define just how different you are from your brother. You had never really seen leaves before because last year you were just a baby in the autumn. I let you out of the pushchair just to see what you would do, and you jumped straight in them. There was no hesitation or fear at all, you just dived headfirst into them. You wanted to touch them, taste them, smell them. Loved looking at them and hearing them rustle but more than anything else you loved being able to play in the dirt.

Journalling reads: The entire time I was pregnant Lukas asked me daily when Logan was
going to be born. When I went into labour he was so excited that he was finally getting to meet his baby brother. He was not at all happy that he had to wait for Nan to bring him to the hospital to see Logan for the first time. As soon as Lukas took hold of him, Logan reached out of his blankets and grabbed hold of Lukas’s finger, and refused to let go, it was love at first sight for both of them. 4th August 2009.

Journalling reads: When it comes to taking cute photographs of you, I am not very lucky. There is always something that goes wrong. My photo usually ends up blurry or out of focus. Or you move at the last second. Or perhaps it ends up being a little like Lukas’s 3rd birthday party. You had on a little pink dress and you looked absolutely adorable, I wanted to take lots of photographs of you. Then for no reason we could find, my camera completely died. I ended up with just one super blurry photo of you and mummy and one photo of you and Lukas with neither one of you looking at me. I was so disappointed. Having all boys of my own, you are the only one who can help indulge any desires I have to scrap pages filled with flowers and sparkly things. I guess we will just have to keep trying to take some photographs of you looking gorgeous, and if all else fails, perhaps I can borrow some from your mummy. Because you are far too cute and pretty not to scrap.
