Tomorrow you are two

To my beautiful boy,
I can’t believe it but yet it is true.
Tomorrow is your birthday,
Tomorrow you are two.
Two years ago we were yet to meet,
You were still a baby in my tummy,
I was as big as an elephant,
But it was worth it to be your Mummy.
My life changed the day you arrived,
You make me happy everyday.
I know sometimes things aren’t perfect,
But I love you more than words can say.
Two years ago you were so tiny,
You didn’t have a clue.
Now you run and talk and sing,
You are so busy now you’re two.
You are my whole world Leo.
You will never fully understand,
How my heart swells with love
When you reach up for my hand.
Every kiss and cuddle
Fills me with so much joy.
I will never love anything more
Than cwtches with my boy.
Sometimes I might get things wrong,
But I have not done this before.
I am learning everything like you,
And as you grow we will both learn more.
Your adorable little laugh,
The sweetest sound I will ever hear.
I wonder what you will be laughing at
This same time next year.
Two years ago I had no idea
Just how amazing you would be.
Nothing will ever make me happier
Than being your mummy.
I hope you have fun tomorrow Leo,
I really hope you do.
All your friends and family are coming,
To party and celebrate with you.
So happy birthday baby,
From Daddy and from me.
Who knows what adventures lie ahead
For us all in year three.
I love you gorgeous Leo
And I can’t believe it but it is true.
Tomorrow is your birthday,
Tomorrow you are two.

    #twinklytuesdays – My youngest is 2 next week. Lovely little poem. They really will never know, for all they put us through, how much they are our worlds. One to show him when he has kids of his own!

    Happy birthday to your little one for next week! Yes will definitely show him when he's older and he will only fully understand the words once he is a parent too (now that's a scary thought!) Xx

    Ah, this is so lovely and really captures how us parents feel before Birthdays. I found Oliver's second birthday more emotional than the first.
    I hope you all have a lovely party 🙂

    Happy birthday!! Your poem makes me think of the quote that goes something like, "Every time a child is born, so is a mother." Thanks for linking with #TwinklyTuesday.
