It was Boo’s First Birthday yesterday, and we had so much fun!
It was just what we needed after she had to spend Wednesday night in hospital hooked up to and IV for antibiotics and fluids because she was so poorly. She is a lot better now, just have to finished her course of antibiotics and get rid of this nasty cough.
She was a very lucky girl who got lots of lovely presents from both family and friends. It was so nice to see her excited by all the presents she could rip open and the boxes she could play with! She got so many lovely presents, too many to list, I cannot believe how many presents she had to open!
One of her favourite presents seems to be a wooden pushalong elephant which I bought at a lovely local children’s toy and clothes store. However Boo seems to find it easier to pick it up and carry it rather than push it along.
She got so many beautiful cards which I intend to save so that she can look at them when she is older (I am a bit of a hoarder when it comes to things like this and I may have to save every birthday card she ever gets!)
Boo got the softest dressing gown I have ever seen from her grandma and grandad, from John Lewis, it is so bright and colourful too. It’s nice to have bright colourful clothes for her that aren’t necessarily pink/purple, makes a nice change.
One of the most practical presents is the smart trike which Boo loved sitting in yesterday after her Daddy had assembled it, and I think will be good for short journeys as she gets so fed up in the pram at times. We will hopefully get a lot of use out of it.
We made Boo a lovely birthday cake and she ate some of it which is good, as since she has been poorly she had become very very fussy about food and eating in general.
I am really bad at remembering to take photos, so I don’t seem to have that many decent ones from Boo’s birthday, but hopefully when I get the photos from the rest of the family there will be more decent ones!
It was such a special and emotional day! I can’t believe my tiny baby girl is 1!
