I need a bath

"Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think.  Because although eating honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.

Dear Bean

You are the love of my life, the best thing I've done...well apart from marrying your Dad.
When you sing in your cot my heart skips 
- you're awake and I get to come in and see you smiling up at me.

I love that you have ginger hair and blue eyes, even though Mummy and Daddy are both brunette.  I love that you don't really look like either of us...you just look like Bean.

Even though it can be really hard at times, I love that you will only be held by me or Daddy.
When you say "Dadadada" when Daddy comes home it is gorgeous and I feel overwhelming joy for this happy home we have created.

Happy 1st Birthday Darling Bean.
Thank you for being you and filling our lives with love and smiles.
