Snowdrops at Bourn Hall

Sunnyboy loves to talk about, and hear stories of, when he was a baby. This week we've been talking about when he lived in my uterus and how he got there. Today we were at Bourn Hall where Sunnyboy's life began. He's a lot bigger now than the day I went to collect him from the clinic and came home with him in my uterus. He was the little embyro that stayed and he's my sunny happy boy.
