This day last year you were born at 10.04pm, weighing 7lb 13.5oz and 53cm long. Today you weigh 23lb5oz and you are 77.5cm tall.
I have absolutely loved spending the last year with you. I've been amazed by how quickly you've grown and changed. It's hard to believe it was a whole year ago I was so excited to meet you, and I was sat wondering what you'd look like, but now I'm sat here excited for your first ever birthday.
This past year has been by far my favourite one, you've brought so much joy and love into my life. I had no idea how much of an impact a tiny little baby could make!
You're turning into such a comical little boy, every time we've been out recently you've made somebody laugh, usually by your cheeky expressions when anyone comes to talk to you.
For your little party we had for you on the weekend I had made a timeline of photos, starting from the day you were born, then monthly photos up until 11 months old. Your appearance seemed to change so much from month to month. As did your personality, well it didn't change I'd just say I got to know you more each month.
You loved your party on the weekend, it was a family party and it ended up lasting about 5 hours! Everyone just seemed to be having so much fun, especially you.
There are some things I really miss about your younger days. I remember wishing at the time that you'd have a nap in your cot but now I miss spending your nap times with you fast asleep in my arms and I'd sit watching a film while enjoying your sleepy cuddles, or the times I dozed off lying next to you. Now you won't fall asleep anywhere apart from your bed.
I get emotional sorting through your tiny clothes sometimes, or looking back at old pictures. It's just gone way too fast, but that doesn't mean I'm not enjoying how you are now.
I can't wait to spend the day with you. We don't have any in particular plans but we will try and do something fun.
Happy First Birthday Baby xxxx
