Just to let you know as you begin to read this post, I will jump from past to present just so you don't get lost.
Today my little princess is one.
I cant believe how quick the last year has flown by, it only seems like yesterday that I was ushering the wife into the car and driving her up to the hospital.
One year later and my little princess will be at her first milestone of her life. So many things have happened during this year, her nanny was rushed into hospital but now thankfully she is a lot better, her auntie uncle and cousins moved to Essex and to top it off she was in hospital for ten days all because of a milk allergy but on the positive side we moved from our small apartment to our big three bedroom house.
My daughter will be our first child to have a birthday in a house, so that in itself is a special occasion.
I cast my mind back to her very first scan, we had decided from the first scan of each of our three children that we weren't going to find out the sex of our baby until it was born.
So when L-A arrived in the world it was a complete shock to the midwife, my wife and I. The midwife lifted her into the air, I looked and looked again and thought to myself "we have to start all over again, our house isn't used to pink lol".
It has been a up and down road so fair leading up to this special day, I can only hope that all the knocks we have taken along the way are firmly behind us now and in our new home we can all move forward peacefully and successfully on our family journey through life.
We held a little party for her this evening, with close family members in attendance. I was adventurous today too, I decided to bake, yes bake I said. I brought my daughter a birthday cake but I wanted do something different so I baked her a cake.
It ended up being the most brightest coloured cake I have ever baked, three coloured 3 layered birthday cake with mint green icing and pink sparkles. Yes to answer your question it was lovely and everyone did enjoy it so all turned out well in the end lol.
L-A enjoyed the day so much she flaked out half was through lol.
