Birthday Interview with Lovely Liam

20th July 2009
 Five years ago you arrived on the scene a little earlier than expected.  Two weeks early.

Lifted up and out of me in a way I was not prepared for and never expected having had two previous perfectly normal deliveries.  I was that person who skipped the Caesarean section chapter in the birth book.     

Five years later you do everything at your own pace and respond to being harried by insisting “I’m going as fast as I can!”

You are completely without guile, affectionate beyond compare and one of these days I am going to purchase a one way ticket to your planet because I want a little bit of what you are made of all for myself.

You are our Lovely Liam and this is your happy birthday interview.

    1. He's a big ol' softie Elizabeth. I hope he never loses that but at the same time, develops a rough edge or two to help him over life's hurdles.
