One

One year and one day ago a magical creature came into my life. She was so brand new, but yet somehow I felt that I had always known her, my heart knew that I had.

For one year and one day to date I have watched in amazement as she has grown, learnt, developed and explored. She is strong with a strong personality, knows how she wants things, is so independent and very social. While she loves her mummy cuddles, she really is daddy's little girl.

Yesterday we had a lovely, simple day to celebrate. A day with family and a couple of very dear friends.

And she had her very first taste of cake... Imagine tasting that sweet fluffy icing for the first time...

You see something new, a pretty colour, enticing, that just draws you to it...


You pop a little into your mouth...


And then, wow! The sugar hits your tongue...


Wouldn't you go back for more?

Happy Birthday my wonderful little one. You fill my heart to overflowing.

Oh that's so adorable- it made me cry a little as my little girl is now 17- I swear I don't know where that time went!
On a 'terrible mother' note discovering cake might be adorable but the day Chicky Babe discovered that you can't run through glass made me laugh! I told you I was a terrible mother, but in my defence the look of absolute shock and puzzlement was priceless.
