3 years ago today

Three years ago today Callum was 3 hours old. We'd been the happiest that we'd ever been and the saddest that we'd ever been. We were still trying to digest the news that he probably had Down syndrome and were frantically looking at all the markers that had been pointed out and trying to explain them away.

fast forward to today.

Callum woke up at 6am shouting "da da daddy". He went down stairs and discovered presents, presents and more presents. He loved the Shrek and Sesame Street wrapping paper (probably more than some of the presents). He's been singing Happy Birthday to you all morning and got to eat chocolate brownies for breakfast. At school he'll play with his friends, take a nap and then time for his favourite music class. Once class is over it'll be time for cake and more singing of Happy Birthday. Tonight he has his favourite dinner of fries and chick nuggets followed by a Shrek cake. Three year ago I never thought that life would be so normal :-)

Happy 3rd birthday my dear sweet Callum, I wouldn't change you for the world.

Happy Birthday, Callum! It's good to know (& learn) that life is more normal than not, isn't it? Chocolate brownies sound like a healthy breakfast to me: flour(grains), eggs (dairy), & chocolate is good for the heart, right? Yummy!

What is normal, anyway? Happy birthday to your wee one. And I wish you a happy anniversary. That makes three years as his mother, the most important person on his planet.

I hope he had the happiest of birthdays!! I have a son named Kaden that I wouldn't change for the world either.

It's been a week since I was last over at your blog. Can't believe I missed his birthday.

Happy belated birthday Callum!
