One Today! (a.k.a. How The Hell Did That Happen?!)

My lovely boy;

Because you are one today and it is such a special and insane day, your Mummy Vee and I are BOTH blogging. This is me, Mummy Jay, typing first while you are napping…

I cannot believe you are one.  ONE?!  Weirdly, that seems so old. I keep wondering where our baby went and wishing we could REWIND and REPLAY on continuous loop forever. And then I remember you’re still our baby and always will be (even when you’re 14 and horrified at the concept, especially lest your friends find out).  Good lord, though, you’ve grown, most of all your hair. And you never keep still!

I’m soooo proud that we’ve managed to take your photograph every day for a whole year.  Get me!  I’m especially proud of yesterday’s Mothers’ Day video of you signing MUMMY over and over again. Neither your Mummy Vee nor I will ever tire of seeing you sign that, although we wish you weren’t so fond of doing it while you’re eating… particularly not when you’re eating a tuna sandwich or peanut butter on toast. It’s quite a messy sign(!)

Today we went out with your Nannie and Grandad to a kind of farm type place where you were rather unimpressed with all the animals, as we predicted. Your favourite part was definitely your lunch, as well as crawling all over the reptile room floor, ignoring all the reptiles and trying to break into their enclosures. I wish I’d remembered that when you stuffed your grubby little hands into my mouth later on.  Bleugh!

Anyway. I’m so happy and proud to be one of your mothers. Happy birthday, BB!

All my love, Mummy Jay xxxx


Hey Baby, Mummy Vee here. Your mummy Jay beat me to all the good yarns, but that’s probably just as well, given that I only have a few minutes here.

So, the first anniversary of the day of your birth is upon us already. I’m not sure why that makes me feel so tearful, because I’m not really sad. It’s true, I do miss the wee babby you once were, but I am so looking forward to getting to know the little boy you’re becoming.

I’ve been thinking a lot today about how we first met, this time last year. The amazingness and the ordinariness of it still blow me away. I love you. Happy birthday, little one.
