A Year of Firsts

On 26th January, two months ago now, this little thing turned 1 whole year old.



A year that's not been without its problems but equally not been without its happy moments too.

So...how do you measure a year? (apart from the obvious answer of 525,600 minutes)*


  • In 1 music festival rocked out at (I wonder how many babies can say they'd seen Adele and Muse live by 5 months old)

  • In 1 lido sunbathed at
  • In 1 professional photo shoot attended
  • In 1 balloon fiesta stared at

  • In 1 publicity press pack featured in (scroll to page 10 for our story)
  • In 1 funeral attended
  • In 1 fancy dress party dressed up for (it was a 'heroes & villains' theme - we went as Little Red Riding Hood, the Woodcutter and the Big Bad Wolf!)

  • In 1 dairy allergy diagnosed
  • In 1 hen do gate-crashed
  • In 1 modern train rode on

  • In 2 steam trains rode on
  • In 2 weddings attended
  • In 2 cinema films watched
  • In 3 classical music concerts enjoyed
  • In 3 Father Christmas' met

  • In 3 late night trips to A&E
  • In 4 firework displays admired
  • In 4 fairground rides rode on

  • In 4 levels of swimming lessons completed
  • In 5 soft play centres bounced up and down in
  • In 5 steam rallies enjoyed
  • In 6 holidays taken

  • In 9 carnivals watched open-mouthed
  • In 11 theatre shows enjoyed

  • In 20 different baby groups visited

  • In 1 big birthday party

  • In numerous friends made
  • And in thousands of naps taken!

  2. So sweet!! Also - FOUR levels of swimming lessons?! I don't have babies (as you know), so I don't know what the "standard" swimming rate is, but are you SURE she's not a mermaid?! xxx

    1. Haha, well she does *really* like swimming and water so who knows! I'll have to make her one of those mermaid's tail blankets! :-) xxx

Thank you very much for all your lovely comments; I do have every intention of replying but sometimes life with a baby gets in the way...
