Note: I found these photos in a draft post this morning in October 2018… just three weeks shy of Marlow’s 6th birthday, making these photos nearly one year old! I contemplated deleting the draft since it’s so old and I never had the time to write any text, but the idea of deleting these cute photos made me so sad. So I’m publishing these photos as is — backdating it to November 2017 as it should have been originally posted, without having written anything noteworthy, simply because I hope the photos speak for themselves and share a glimpse into that happy morning on Marlow’s 5th birthday. And I’m hoping I’ll be a much more organised person this year for Marlow’s 6th birthday and will share a post about Marlow at six. Gosh, how quickly a year flies by!
