The above is a picture of Felix on the morning of his 18th. That’s this morning. I know! Who’d have thunk I’d have created such an amazing creature (with a bit of help from Eirene obvs.). We’re so proud of him.
When he was a baby someone said “The years will fly by now you’ve got a child. Before you know it, he’ll be 18.” They were right you know. At the time though the mere thought of having am 18 year old son seemed implausible. Well, it turns out, they were right. What a ride it’s been!
I started this blog when he was three. He and the blog have grown up together. I’m hoping he’ll start blogging himself soon. Blogging as a form is out of vogue at the moment. Vlogging is where it’s at (certainly, financially.) Perhaps. I’ve just had a scan back in time and searched for other Felix birthday blogs. I’ve found a few;
Felix is 4
Including a charming story of how we dressed him him as a caterpillar.
Felix is 7
Remote control submarine. I wonder what happened to that?
Felix is 8
Yugio Dual disks
Felix is 11
Cake. Chocolate cake. This might have been the theme setter.
Felix is 13
Xbox and Jelly Babies. We got him Jelly Babies again today.
Felix is 15
Accordion to this post, he’s handsome.
If you search this site for ‘Felix’ you get a lot of content. I wouldn’t be surprised if the word felix is the word with the highest propensity on this site.
So he got a leatherman wave today. He’s coveted mine for years. We’re taking him out for eat and drinks in Leeds tonight to mark the occasions.
I call him boy, but now, he’s a man.
