We made it! We got Olive safely, happily and healthily to one year old. The lack of sleep hasn't killed us and the first 5 months of constantly carrying around a screaming baby seem like a distant memory. Every day I'm amazed at this perfect little person we've created. She's so funny and daggy and silly and cute and I can't imagine how life was before she came along.
We had a little party for her with a few close family and friends at Mum and Dad's. She had such a great time - chased balloons, ate loads of cake and played in the wrapping paper. A bit sad that my baby's gone forever, but can't wait for all the new things that her first year of toddlerhood will bring.
