He is the first 'subsequent sibling' -- the first born after losing Levi to SIDS aged just 48 days.
He restored my confidence in being able to look after a baby and survived all my worries and poking and prodding whenever he slept.
He lodged himself firmly in his dads' heart, growing him into an awesome father. (in fact, he loves his dad so much that he's refused to open his presents till Dad can watch on Skype)
He grew into this fine young man.
He is bright and funny and loud and thoughtful and grubby and altogether wonderful.
Happy birthday, my boy.
