Like clockwork Felix awoke at 5am this morning. Which just happens to be the time he woke a year ago today and decided he'd had enough of living in mummy's belly. Yep, it's his 1st birthday today.
It goes without saying that it's flown by. Life does and I don't like to dwell on that too much. What the anniversary of his birth brings home is just how much he's changed over the course of a single year. Remember the photo I posted on the day he was born? Well we tried to re-create the shot today and here they both are for comparison.
It should be obvious in the lower that he's being physically re-strained in order to keep him there long enough to take the photo and he's none too happy about it. That's the difference. Gone is the helplessly delicate little thing that slept all the time and was all but immobile. In its place a solid little ball of energy who only ever keeps still if it's to feed.
The fact that he's such a handful is made all the more worrying by the fact there's another on the way and due late June. Daddy's hoping it will be a girl this time.
