Happy First Birthday Benjamin!

Darling little Benjamin (#BBAC) turned 1 year old on 24 April 2019.
Benjamin is a simply delightful child. He is a chilled, easy-going and petty relaxed child. He is able to amuse himself often. He interacts with free flowing ease and confidence with people.
He appears to be deep thinking, sometimes quite seriously so, and since birth has seemed quite mindful and centred.

Interestingly since the very day he was born he has been drawn to lights. He loves looking at them and his gaze has followed lights from day one. And now apart from the usual dada and mama words, his first real word, including pointing to and looking at the object is 'Light'. Andrew pointed out that this links right into the roots of his name (Bohdi - enlightened or awakened) and also the Jewish name Mier meaning 'bringer of light'. So I guess it's pretty fitting.
Benjamin has real brough 'light' and lightness back into our lives. He has brought to me a sense of peace and contentment that I had lost before.*

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRECIOUS BOY. You are very very loved and adored.

With love from

(* Of course the missing and longing for Natey is very much still there, but Benjamin has helped to bring purpose, direction and hope back to everyday life again).
