Your one

by - 13:42

I cannot believe you are one. You have been in this world 365 days. That's over 31 million seconds that you have been part of my world. There has been countless nappy changes, milk feeds and poo explosions but finally you are a toddler. I can remember when you were born thinking how tiny and precious you were. Now one, I watch you walking around the room and think how different you are. Gone are the black locks and almost Mediterranean skin, now you are fair with very blonde hair.

Your personality is starting to shine through. You love to laugh. Whether that is because of my silly voices or because you pass wind. you love to smile. You know what you want but can't quite communicate it yet. You have started having temper tantrums with avengence particularly when we are in a public place. I'm certain that's something I just need to get used too.

I try not to put too much attention on milestones but can't help feel proud of all the things you have learnt so far in your short life. Watching you learn a new skill and develop and change daily has made me so proud. I won't admit how many times I have cried over this.

You now are:

  • Walking - You are walking around the room and have even started doing 360 degree turns which I admit are terrifying to watch for me as I'm worried you may fall. Your dad tells me to stop panicking but I'm always nearby just in case.
  • Climbing - You can climb the stairs and are currently putting all of your energy into climbing onto the sofa.
  • Saying a few words - You have been saying Mama, Dada, Nana and NomNom for a while but after a day of saying car you are currently refusing to do it anymore.
  • Pointing,clapping and waving
  • Eating Proper Food - When I say 'proper' food, I mean you eat what I eat and loves to feed yourself and then blow bubbles with the food in your mouth.
You are absolutely everything to me and I couldn't imagine my life without you! Happy Birthday (Belated now..) Jack x
