52 Reasons Why I Love You 

Coming up with 52 reasons why I love you isn’t as hard as I thought it might be. A Mothers love is like no other and all the little things that our babies achieve in the first year of their lives are pretty amazing. 

I was challenged with the task of coming up with a list of 52 things that make me love my little boy.  One for every week of his first year.

Why not have a go for your little one’s birthday?  It is sure a lovely positive and inspiring activity to do!

  1. I hope Robot had a great day yesterday and happy belated birthday to him. This is such a lovely I love you list. It’s funny that some of the things you love about Robot I also used to love about my kids when they were babies but now they have hopped over to the annoying things list 🙂 thanks for hosting #abrandnewday x

  2. Happy Birthday! What a lovely list – I actually got a bit emotional reading it (And I think I must be hormonal, as the one that set me off was the one about getting excited about yoghurt!) It’s lovely to remember all those tiny things that come together to make something huge that is just impossible to put into words. Thanks so much for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove
