Another step away from babyhood, another step towards the day he packs a bag and heads off round the world to 'find himself'.
Or maybe I'm getting a bit ahead of myself...he IS only four after all.
The difference, I think, is that this time there's no baby coming after him.
Which actually, is a little unfamiliar, and ever so slightly scary, but also quite exciting too in an uncharted territory, filled with possibilities kinda way.
Did I already mention the mixed feelings part?
Here's what I wrote about him two years ago when he became a toddler....and now just like that, he's a boy. My sentiments however, remain the same.
Happy 4th Birthday wee man xxx
