Being a mum of three I understand all to well how quickly children grow up and change. As my little boy Jacob is my youngest and most likely my last ever 'baby' I try and saviour every single one of his first experiences. Last year was a big year for him as he celebrated his first birthday, took his first steps, ate his first foods, got his first tooth and said his first words, among so many other wonderful first moments. However last year he was still so very young and he won't remember any of the experiences himself.
This year however things are different he will be two at the end of August and he is now an adventurous little boy with a mind of his own and the world at his feet. This year Jacob understands everything that is going on around him and he understands and soaks everything in like a little sponge, it is a joy to watch him discover things for the very first time.

I am sure that my little boy will be having many more adventures this summer as we embark on his summer of firsts. I am already looking forward to taking him on his first merry go round at the fair, his first paddle in the sea, his first wedding and all of the other magical firsts he will experience over the coming months. At the moment he is enjoying his first summer playing with his sister in the garden, it fills my heart with joy when I hear their laughter and amazement when they spy butterfly's fluttering by as they play.
