Our little girl turned 1 on Sunday and it was a lovely party in the park and thankfully there was a bit of a breeze and lots of shade so it wasn't as hot has it has been the last week or so. We had a Butterfly Cake, little frog and ladybeetle cup cakes, tea cup biscuits and loads of other yummy afternoon tea treats and a pinata that took a bit of wacking to break (perhaps 4 layers of papier mache was too many). Now at 1 year old she can climb the stairs and come back down them safetly, she eats almost anything we give her and still asks for more, she says hello, walks while hanging onto us or something and will stand on her own for a few seconds. She is a determined little Miss and we love having her around. She weighs 9.3kg and is 75 cm tall, she still only has 2 bottom teeth and a little bit of hair. What she misses out on teeth and hair she makes up for in personality she wins over all the Grandpas at the shops and is a real little socialite. She just needs to improve her sleeping as this is a weakness of hers. Thanks to all the lovely Birthday presents we now have a growing family of babies and dollys in our house and the numbers are even rivalling the trucks. She seems to love them all and has no favourites yet. She is a very lucky little girl to have so many family and friends who love her as much as we do. Happy Birthday Emma may you always be happy and sweet.
