i can’t believe he’s FIVE


Five years old today.

My little H-Bomb. Henry Bean. 

The little dude who adores anything with a screen. Who adores trickiness; just joking Mum. Who's favourite foods are olives and tomatoes and pickles and crackers and "grown up cheese" (brie.) 

Who didn't walk at all until he was two and now hops down the street on one leg. 

The fella who loves cooking and hates colouring in. The one who phones his grandparents regularly and when he runs out of steam at the end of the day just wants a cup of warm milk. 

The little guy who doesn't like dogs but adores cats, most of all the neighbour's cat, Cow. Who'll do handstands for a jellybean but doesn't do biscuits.

The boy who makes me so frustrated and so proud and who made me a Mum. 

Happy birthday baby boy. Glad to be hanging out with you in the world.

Goodness, Fi, he’s so grown up! And in the top photo he looks a lot like you – quite surprising as for 4 years and 364 days worth of photos that we’ve seen, he looks just like a mini Ad! Just delightful, Happy Birthday Henry xx

I was going to comment about how much fun i’ve had reading the blog… and then something got my attention (which is tough) – I have a soulmate, someone else who will potentially make a bad serve at tennis one day and bite off their tongue. Henry Walmsley you’re my hero because I too poke out my tongue to concentrate!
