And he’s off…

Just like that, our tiny 1lb baby bird is away to his first day of Nursery.

Such a bittersweet moment. On the one hand I don’t ever want to let him go. My head is full of a thousand worries and what ifs.

Then on the other, I know just how lucky we are to be getting days like this with him. When I think back to the days when his ‘firsts’ consisted of milestones we’d never even imagined. First brain scan, first surgery, first hour off the ventilator. The first time we saw him, tiny and see through and covered in lines and tubes. We never dared dream of days like today.

And yet there he goes, as eager and fearless as ever, reminding us to never doubt him for a second ❤
