Today, I want to give thanks for my friends.

I've been living on my own since I was 18. Even though I'm not an only child, the fact that I live in a different country from the rest of my family means that I don't get to share my day-to-day life with my family. It was the same for Richard too.

So in many ways, my friends, both old and new, were my family. My old friends kept me feeling loved and secure while my new friends helped me to experience new things and broaden my outlook. Now that I am married with a baby, I still need my friends and thankfully, they're still there for me.

I hope that Ryan will have many good and dear friends who will support him, encourage him, motivate him, keep him company and basically, look after him. This is quite important to both Richard and me. In fact, one reason why we put him in Gymboree was to encourage him to socialise with other babies his age.

Today Ryan got to spend some time hanging out with some other babies (Victoria, Brayden and Matthias) from the Jan 2009 SMH forum group. He was a little shy at first but I think he had a good time, because by the end, he started to get very chatty and after we left, he started singing at the top of his voice!
