Baby Watch – Max turns 1

Max is one. Utter madness – it doesn’t seem more than a few months ago I was telling people baby number 3 was on the way – and now that baby is fast on the way to being a toddler.
In the last week or 2, Max has really changed. His face has lost that baby look, he has got 9 teeth, he is constantly on his feet and will be walking any minute now. 
He plays now too. Obviously all babies play, but he has really started to interact now. He loves Happyland, Mega Blocks and his new ride on. 
But back to the main event – Max’s first birthday.
Having just moved house, it wasn’t a big flash affair, but he was surrounded by family who love him very much indeed, and he had some gorgeous gifts too.
He enjoyed reading his cards.

And after some encouragement, he discovered how to rip off the wrapping paper – with some help from his brother and sister! 

But by far his favourite part of the day was cake time. What’s not to like – cake, singing, clapping and a really interesting candle to try and grab!

It didn’t take him long to dive into the cake.

But it was a pretty messy affair!

I just can’t believe this little man is 1. I really can’t. I am SO proud of how far he has come.

One year has passed since we welcomed this bundle of joy into our lives, and he has made us smile every day since. A fighter from the start, Max has taught us all a lot about the world, about how to find joy in the simplest things, and how the heart can expand endlessly to welcome another family member.
I am thankful for this blessing.
