She turned one year old today!
Naturally we went to the beach.
And gave her presents.
And fed her a chocolate cupcake, which she ate one curl at a time
but a baby can only be delicate for so long!
Then after her bath it was 7pm and we took her outside for some final photos in her 2nd birthday outfit.
My husband and I have had a wonderful year with Charlotte. Personally I've enjoyed sharing my life on this blog and I've deeply appreciated the feedback received from blogger friends Grit's Day, CeCe Says, Interstitial Life, Crazy Wild Berry and occasionally Potty Mummy and Suburban Turmoil. Comments on bad days cheer me up considerably and comments on good days cheer me on with a nice pat on the back. Your support has been unmeasurable appreciated and well needed.
When I first got pregnant, I wasn't sure what kind of mom I would be, I didn't particularly like kids, didn't get excited about babies, wasn't sure how I would feel about my own child - sorry if that sounds astonishingly off-putting - but I really didn't know! I'm glad to say I've loved every minute of it and now I love to read and hear about other peoples stories about their children. It's true, children open your heart in ways unknown.
Lovely first year, can't wait to see what happens in Charlotte 1.0
