Party Time!

What a week! I feel like I've aged about twenty years! Wednesday was Emilie's 1st birthday and her party was today. I've been so worked up and stressed about trying to get it all right and making sure that everything was perfect that tonight, now that the party is over, I feel like a big weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

The past few days Emilie has been more clingy than normal. As soon as I attempt to leave the room without her she screams. Also night time sleeping has been a bit hit or miss so I was conscious of how today was going to go. A new place, lots of people and much more noise than she is use to.. Once again though my girl surprised me and rose to the occasion. I gave her an earlier nap so by party time she was raring to go. She didn't like anyone else holding her but that's nothing new so as long as she was with me, she was okay.

Both me and my sister forgot to bring our cameras with us (I cannot tell you how gutted I am!) so I only managed to get a few photos on my iPhone.

My sister made her cake. It turned out better than I imagined! 

Singing 'Happy Birthday' It was so hot in the room so half way through Emilie ended up in just her top & nappy!

Enjoying being the centre of attention.. 

A quick twelve month update seen as I didn't do my normal monthly update this month. 

I honestly cannot believe how quick this past year has gone. It's been a testing time but also amazing. My high needs, high spirited little baby is turning into a high spirited little girl right before my eyes. Every day she changes and does something new. The way she loves her brother is beautiful and watching her eyes literally light up when her Daddy walks through the door at the end of the day is amazing. She is still so 'baby' in lots of ways, she sits on my lap for all of her bottles, she needs rocking to sleep for every nap & at night time, she still likes to be carried a lot.. But then in other ways she seems so independent already. I don't mind all the 'baby' like behaviour though. Knowing she's my last baby makes me want to savour it as much as I can.

And lastly.. Some photos from her big day on Wednesday..

Now I promise you, no more birthday talk until James' big day in February!
