Happy Birthday Daniel James!

Today this sweet boy of mine turned three! Hard to believe that those three years have gone so fast!
Daniel's birth was one of the most amazing days of my life. We had a quick and pain free water birth. As he was being born the midwife looked at his fine fuzzy blonde hair spread out in the water like a halo around his head and said "Oh look, a little angel baby!" He has been my little angel baby ever since.
This boy is so easy to adore. He is funny, and snuggly, and just so easy to enjoy.

His little foot still fits in the palm of my hand, and he still likes to come into our bed in the morning for a cuddle. Every day he tells me at least once "I love you too!" (even if I haven't told him!) He has the longest eyelashes of any boy I know and if he has done something wrong he comes to find me and looks me straight in the eye and says "I'm sorry Mummy!" (one day he even cut his own hair and came to me with the scissors and the lock of hair saying "I'm sorry Mummy it was ALL my fault!") He has the most infectious giggle, and the sweetest kisses! He is good at sharing. He puts himself to bed when he is tired. He is gentle with babies and little people. He is curious about bugs, and nature, and trucks, and dinosaurs, and whales.
He is a truly unique little character.

I feel so blessed to have this little boy in our lives. Happy birthday my special Danny boy!
