Journalling reads: Living in Britain we are much more used to summer being filled with wind and rain than with sunshine. So on the rare occasion that we get a heatwave, none of us really deal with it very well. Last July when we had a few days of temperatures between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius, I would be lying if I didn’t say that it made us all feel pretty miserable. It’s a big adjustment for us to go from the multiple layers of clothes we usually need to stay warm in our house to trying to wear enough clothes to stay cool. We decided to try and spend some time outside in the back garden. Since Leia wasn’t really mobile we decided to put her in the baby nest, even dressed in just a thin cotton t-shirt and a nappy, she was still very hot and fed up. She looked so adorably cute with her little cheeks flushed bright pink and her hair damp with sweat curling slightly at her neck. There is something so sweet in seeing your chunky little legs and arms on display. I couldn’t resist taking a quick photo when you fell asleep.

Journalling reads: When I decided that it might, be nice to make some Christmas cards with your photograph on to send out to family, I thought it would be as simple as dressing you in a cute outfit and taking a few photos but I forgot to account for a baby meltdown!

Journalling reads: We were lucky enough to have some lovely summer weather, just as you were mastering sitting up by yourself. We got to spend some time practising it on the trampoline while Daddy was cooking a BBQ.

Journalling reads: When I bought chocolate covered shortbread as a treat, I wasn’t really surprised when you decided to help yourself to one. I was on the phone to Nan at the time, and I remember laughing that you had grabbed the packet and ripped it open to grab a biscuit. Since it was shortbread I knew it would dissolve so it was safe for you to eat. What I didn’t expect though was exactly how much mess you could possibly make with a single biscuit. You were covered from head to toe, it was on your clothes, in your hair and in the few seconds it took me to grab a packet of baby wipes you had smeared chocolate all over my bed! 22nd September 2012.

Journalling reads: Finding you gifts for your first birthday was not an easy task. With two older brothers there are very few toys that are suitable for your age that we don not already have. You don’t really have much interest in any of toys at all unless Logan is playing with them! We decided that a ball pit might be fun as one of your gifts. After looking at a few different ones we decided that it would be better to just buy you some balls and use the inflatable baby nest we already had at home. You seemed to really like it, but it was still much more fun to try and escape as I was trying to get a nice photo of you sat in it.
