Oh my gosh!! my baby girl is 1 whole year old!!!! How did this happen??
She’s so clever, I can’t believe how much she’s grown and learnt. From being a little vulnerable baby struggling to put weight on and being in and out of hospital to be my head strong little girl who eats anything you put in front of her. I’m yet to find food she doesn’t like. She waves, she holds your hand, she crawls to me when she’s scared, she stands (albeit wobbly) and she’s so close to doing it by herself. She’s desperate to get walking and she’s trying so hard. I’ve never had any problems with her sleeping. Nap times were tricky at first but she’s never woken up every other hour through the night. She’s only ever woken once a night if that for milk and a nappy change. Otherwise she sleeps through and sleeps in til at least 8 sometimes 10 am. She’s been amazing.
It’s not been easy, some days have been far from it but it’s all been completely worth it. She’s perfect… even if I do say so myself. One thing I’ve learnt is to not compare her to other babies and their milestones. Babies learn things in their own time all you can do is help. It’s basically monkey see monkey do lol she learns things pretty fast when you show her a couple of times first.
I thought I’d add a couple of pics that show her progression.
I love this kid so much. I never realised how much you could love another person until I had my baby girl.
How has everyone else found their first year?
