Happy Birthday!

It's my baby's first birthday!

I couldn't let the occasion pass without a little post. The last couple of days have been fun as we have reminisced about what stage of labour I was in this time last year. My labour started slowly and I was contracting for a good 36 hours before I was officially in "established" labour. But I certainly felt every one of those unofficial contractions, let me tell you! And during them I picked some blackberries, baked some gingerbread men, ate some cheese on toast and knelt down with my head on the settee a lot.

Happy Birthday little one. Your father and I are confident that this grand old age will bring a new level of maturity to your sleeping habits, ie you will sleep for more than one hour in your cot or three hours in our bed.

Happy Birthday Cave Baby! And to you too, ( I reckon the first birthday belongs as much the parents as it does the baby).

Happy birthday Cave Baby!

If she's like mine, she'll turn into a toddler overnight.

Congratulations on your baby's 1st year! 13 months was the magic sleep milestone for us :-)

Cave Mother said...

Thanks everyone. Teething has intervened in the whole sleeping thing at the moment, but I'm confident we'll see improvements very soon!

Happy birthday (belatedly) Cave Baby.

It's a big milestone, as others have said. I hope you had a nice day, with, of course, lovely cake all round.

Cave Mother said...

Fantastic cake thanks Earthenwitch,made by my own fair hand and fashioned into the shape of a number 1.
