Oh little girl, I can’t quite believe I’m writing this already. Today you turn one. A whole year. Words cannot describe the joy you have brought into our lives. You’ve filled a piece of my heart that had been void for as long as I can remember and I cannot even begin to tell you how much we love you.
At one year old, your cheeky little personality is really starting to shine through. You are so incredibly funny, and your little quirks have me and your Daddy laughing every single day. You know how to play a crowd and love being the centre of attention. You’re also doing a good job of living up to your ‘Drama Baby’ status you first picked up when you were in my tummy. Oh my, my, you certainly know your mind and you can throw a tantrum to rival even your Aunty Libby!
This last month, it feels like you have grown at the speed of lightening. You have finally have taken your first steps and are now a fully fledged walker. It’s still quicker sometimes to just crawl but for the most part you waddle your way around wherever you go. You now point to things you want with your pointy finger and have finally mastered using your shape sorter!
Chnaging your nappy and getting you dressed has become somewhat of an olympic sport these days, and during the day if we are at home you will do anything in your power to avoid having to put your trousers on so often you just run around in your nappy.
I’ve been making a real conscious effort to try and get out and see more children so you can play. You still absolutely love music and dancing. We have started going to a weekly Music class and even just in the few weeks we’ve been going you have really started to join in with the actions and playing with the other children. We’ve been seeing more of our friends and your cousins too.
Now that the weather is better – she types as thunder and lightening fill the sky outside – we’ve been able to be outside so much more and you truly are at your happiest when you are out and about and able to roam free.
Our new favourite place is the farm and now that we’re members we go there at least once a fortnight. You love running around the play area and giggling at the naughty goats who manage to make Mama jump every single time!
We’v also been to the beach with Aunty Tasha, Uncle Dean and Maisie. We had a lovely day at the sea, playing with the pebbles and paddling in the sea before exploring the town.
You have grown so much, no longer a teeny tiny baby, you are now confidently toddling around on your own two feet getting into everything and anything and definitely keeping us on our toes!
These are a few of your favourite things…
Dogs, mostly Alfie, but dogs in general are enough to make you fall over giggling!
If you’re Happy and you Know It
Cuddles & kisses
Days at the farm
Blueberries – God help anyone who tries to eat any of your blueberries!
The ‘Ready….’ game you play with Daddy
I am so excited to watch you grow and to see who you become. We love you so very much, little girl, so very very much. Happy Birthday Sweetheart.
Love Mama x
