Darcey’s First Birthday

Darcey's First Birthday

Wow what a busy start to the year, today was Darcey’s first birthday. I can’t believe that my baby girl is 1 already, 2016 went far too quickly.

Our morning

We’ve had a wonderful day today, it started off with presents. Since Christmas Darcey has become an expert at opening presents she gets right in there. She was very happy with the teepee and teddies we got her.

Today I am 1

After croissants for breakfast we all got ready and met some friends for a lovely walk down the beach. We managed to get out between the showers and it was actually quite warm. Darcey had a little nap for the first part of the walk and then woke up to have a play in the sand.

The grown ups needed the walk to blow away the cobwebs. It was a late night celebrating the new year last night. We had friends over for dinner and watched the fireworks on TV.

Party time

For her first birthday we had lots of family and friends to our house to celebrate. She was a bit overwhelmed at first with all the people but after a while was on the floor playing and opening presents.

Darcey how you’ve grown

What a fantastic first year we’ve had with you. You’ve grown so much and I can’t believe how a baby can change so much. You are becoming far more independent and you let us know when you don’t want to do something! At the moment you have 7 teeth and I’m sure in the next few days another one is going to appear.

You are so close to walking, you will use your new pushchair walker or the furniture to get around. We nearly saw your first step today but thought better of it and crawled instead.

You love your brothers so much and your face lights up whenever you see them. You love music and your little dance is hilarious, you love looking at books too.

Your favourite toy is sleepy bunny and you won’t go to sleep without him. You also love the dolly that you got for Christmas and I love seeing you cuddle and kiss her, it’s so cute.

You love food, well at least anything that mummy or daddy is eating. Recently you won’t eat any baby food and have decided that our food is much better. You still like your milk and have three bottles a day.

Slow down baby girl and don’t grow too quickly. I looking forward to all our adventures that we are going to have together in 2017.

    Looks like Darcey had a great first birthday – and I’m loving the tent! My daughter had one of those as a young girl and she loved it. How lovely you’ve documented this as well – she’ll read this when she’s 7 or 8 and love reading about herself!
