Scary stories from a lovely place
Today is Silas’ first birthday. It’s been a good year with the jubba-boy. As the cliche goes, it’s hard to believe that we have had him for one year – that at this time last year I was in the throes of bringing him into the world.
He’s had a pretty crazy first year of life. Living in a busy, stressful city like Joburg, participating in all manner of moving-life tasks, doing the big move to Australia and in a few weeks he will become a big brother to a sibling whom I hope he doesn’t damage too irrepairably.
Blocking things is still Silas’ favourite activity and I’m proud to say he is developing more self control so not damaging himself quite so much.
I’m excited to see what will happen over the next year and hope that Silas will continue to take it all in his stride as he grows and changes.
