Saturday 8th November was Jakes' First Birthday. We had a huge party and really celebrated, I decided it was time to get some "closure" on last year after losing my Dad suddenly in February, and then my Grandad on the night I was admitted to hospital with suspected Pre Eclampsia, I needed to celebrate the one good, amazing thing that happened last year and that was our little angel Jake.
I had a few quiet moments throughout the day, mainly when I put him to bed at night after the party, after the guests had gone and the wrapping paper had been cleared away, and I just sat there staring at this perfect little boy who hasn't a clue about how he made his entrance into the world and I just felt like the happiest, luckiest mummy in the world.
So here's to Jake on his first birthday and to all of our other wonderful babies on their birthdays too.
Love Nic x
