S: William Appleyard 2nd August 1994 - 18th Birthday
BC: Happy 18th Will, we love you 'across the land and all of the way into the sky and up beyond the planets '.....nothing changes ......except you. You have grown into a fine young man and we are so very proud of you. Love from your mum, dad and (little) brother.
2: We were walking on air ...of course it could have been the tiredness! | Your Grandad was so proud and thrilled to become a grandfather at the age of 80. Uncle Roger brought him to see you when you were 2 days old.
3: You were special to grandma ...you flapped your arms about with excitement when she walked into the room.
4: You traveled in style on your journey from the hospital and beyond.
5: You loved water. When you were 4 weeks old you would thrash about with your legs and arms to create as much 'splash' as possible.
6: You were a brilliant model and your mother took full advantage of the situation. | Yes....we apologise but you enjoyed it all at the time and you were sooo cute!
9: You were such a bright and engaging baby ...most of the time.
11: Your early learning soon changed to rampaging about...always busy always animated.
12: Your 1st birthday celebration.... OK I suppose you noticed the wine glasses in front of the birthday cake....it was a celebration for parents too!
13: On occasion ....you slept but only when it was unavoidable.
20: On the 6th Nov 1996 you became a big brother and the problem didn't go away.
