Oh To Be One!
Emilia belongs to my cousin Danny and his wife Siobhan and she turned one at the weekend. Oh to be one!
I’m very close to Danny and Siobhan, they’ve helped me through some seriously tough times. When I heard the news Siobhan had gone into labour I was stupidly excited. I was camping in the middle of nowhere on the coast of Wales at the time with hardly any phone reception. Thankfully my mum managed to call me later on to tell me Siobhan had given birth to a little girl. I was jumping up and down on a sand dune shouting it’s a girl, it’s a girl like a crazy person.
For 9 months we all thought she was carrying a boy, what a surprise. Well all apart from one or two. I cut my weekend away short just so I could see Emilia sooner! She was the perfect little baby and actually loved to sleep, giving Siobhan time to recover.
Fast forward 12 months and here we all are celebrating her first birthday. Siobhan’s parents flew over from their home in Ireland for the occasion. There was an absolutely stunning Paddington creation from Kates Cakes in the middle of the table and there was enough food to feed an army, just how we like it in my family!
Food was scoffed, wine was drank and the kids ran around high on sweets and cake. Emilia didn’t have a clue what was going on or why all these people were in her house but she had a cracking day and was well and truly spoilt.
She sat on her pink princess throne and celebrated by showing her pants to the world, she’s one of us alright.
That photo, I’ll be showing to her and everyone else on her 18th birthday! – Evil aunty Becs.
I left and went home to immediately look over the photos of the day, I loved them.
- Happy birthday our ‘Millie’ we love you! -
