Sophie Is One!



About a month ago, we finally got around to selling Sophie's bassinet.  As I watched it being carried away, a pang of sadness hit me then and there... I suddenly realised my baby was growing up, much quicker than it felt like she should be.  Over the past few weeks since then, she's changed more and more every day as she's reached new milestones and stages.  Just like that, she's gone from a baby to a little girl.  And as excited as I am about all the wonderful times ahead of us, I can't help but feel sad and wish that it were possible to slow down the months a teeny bit.

The past year has been such a special one.  Watching Sophie develop her own personality with her unique little quirks and mannerisms has been so precious.  She is happy, smiley, cheeky, strong-willed, adventurous and oh so lovable and she lights up our world with her presence.

On this very day twelve months ago, we were waiting with excitement to meet our baby.  One year on, our family life is all the more richer having our little girl a part of it.

  7. Happy birthday to little Sophie! It wasn't until I had my own kids that I realised every birthday as a Mum brings so many memories..their complete history in fact plus our own memory of that special day.

  8. Happy Birthday to beautiful Sophie! I'm starting to think that feeling that time is so fleeting will never go away, regardless of their age. My friend's Mum the other day said "I can't believe my baby has just turned 40!" Hope the party was a big success and you are enjoying some down time :-) Mel xx
    PS I love your photo sequence, it's precious.
