"Babies make our priorities shuffle... days shorter, nights longer, homes happier, hair messier, wallets thinner, the past a blur, the future a focus and life cherished"
Lincoln CASH Keough
As a mother, my heart melted as I held my son in my arms for the first time and I knew life would never be the same... It's April 2014.
As a mother, my heart shattered as I held my son in my arms for the last time and I knew life was never going to be the same... it's April 2015.
My sweet little boy stole the hearts of a family filled with beautiful girls! With no brothers, no nephews, no living father or grandfathers, how special it was to have a precious healthy boy to love, raise and encourage to tackle the world.
With a preterm labour scare at 34 weeks, I knew Cash was keen to come into the world. Born on April 9, 2014 at 11:56pm... Cash was lucky to survive his first six months as he was 'smothered' and 'squeezed' with love by his two toddler sisters; Kodi-Laine and Bobbi.
He hit life running... teething at 4 1/2 months... crawling at 5 1/2 months.. walking pushing his trolley around 7 months... ready to race his sisters when he turned one. A tall, lean little boy with a head of white blonde hair, engaging big brown eyes, a cheeky smile and priceless personality. He is the perfect mix of naughty and nice!
Already by aged one he gave his big sisters some cheek and had plenty more up his sleeve. Seeing them having a lunch time rest on the lounge room floor, his face would light up and with great speed crawling on both hands and feet he would take the quickest route to his sisters, pull their hair and lay all over them! Oh boy did the girls cry and boy did he laugh! That's my cheeky monkey.
He happily played on his own and loved playing with his big sisters. Climbing on everything in site, Cash's adventurous spirit wasn't for the faint hearted. A breast fed baby, spoilt with love... Cash only knew and will only know love, cuddles and kisses. Life became more chaotic once there were three cherubs three years and under... and I wouldn't have had it any other way.
I could only hold my son for a year but I can love him for a lifetime.
"We Miss You. We Love You. Sweet Dreams Cashy Boy."
