The video shows the mother singing happy birthday to her son while the baby is lying on her chest. The baby’s father is sitting next to them and watching them closely.
“The most exhausted singing of happy birthday that you’ll ever hear or see, but oh my goodness let me tell you how much I loved being able to finally hold Graham + wish him a happy birthday. After a 16 hour labour, he was finally with us, he felt so good in my arms. I remember this moment like it was yesterday – I was on cloud 9. Now here we are two months later – he’s asleep on my chest, but a little bigger, a little stronger. My, how time flies. But just as a reminder – if you have the chance, sing them happy birthday, if someone is there, ask them to take a video. It will be a memory that you never want to forget, one that you’ll want to watch forever,” says the detailed caption of the video.
