23 Years Ago

On a Monday, 23 years ago today, I gave birth to this little boy. This photo was taken when he was about 20 hours old and it's pretty much the expression on his face the first moment I saw him. He was so alert and inquisitive, almost as if he was also saying 'well, hello there, nice to meet you at last'. He weighed 9lb 7oz, we didn't really bother with kilos then! Today, of course, he is much taller than me, but when I look at him I still see his face as it was that day, somewhere inside the adult face that I love just as much. He has kept that sense of wanting to learn and wanting to know, though, may that never leave him. Happy birthday :)
