While you were sleeping...

Today is Flynn's first birthday. I usually let him have a turn on the computer, and report on the month that was and he is still excited to report on *12 months* and talk about his birthday and show us his presents and what a great day he had but I just wanted to get in first.

Usually once Flynn is asleep sometime between 7 and 7.30, I quickly put him to bed and get on with the night jobs but tonight, I sat in the chair for about two hours, enjoying being still, holding my little newly one year old whose head seems to perfectly fit in the hollow of my neck. I just sat and listened to his little sighs, felt his warm breaths on my neck and stroked his forehead.

I kissed his nose, his chin and his cheeks and whispered words of love in his ears as my eyes filled and my heart overflowed with love and gratitude for the rainbow baby of our family.

Who would have thought out of such heartache would come such a precious selfless gift in Flynn.
