Happy 1st Birthday Baby!
It’s here – it’s happening! You are ONE! It has been one whole year since you entered this world. It’s been a crazy twelve months. It’s been a quick twelve months.
I’d love to keep you a baby for longer, but you’re growing too quickly. Eager to play with your older brother and sisters. You’re not quite crawling yet. You so desperately want to though. However, you’ve figured out that if you lean and stretch far enough, or roll, you can pretty much get what you want. You’re getting up on your knees now, so crawling won’t be far behind!
Mummy got you weighed the day before you turned one and you were 16lbs 12oz and 69cm long. You’re still in 3-6month clothes – but you’ll get there. You’ll catch up I’m sure.
You still don’t have any teeth, so food you have is limited. You love potato though – a bit like Toddler. You also enjoy pasta and rice, not together mind!
You love blowing raspberries and yapping away, although you still only say Dada, no matter how much mummy tries to get you to say Mama. I guess I’ll just have to wait a bit longer for that.
The past year has been amazing. You have been amazing. You’ve brought so much joy to our family. You’re such a character. You idolise your big brother and sisters, especially Toddler. You love seeing her and get so excited when she talks or sings to you.
I can’t wait to see how you grow and develop – just slow time down a notch so I can drink it all in and hold on to every moment just a while longer.
Happy 1st Birthday Little Man!
