I can not believe that you are now one whole year old, the last year has gone by so fast in some way's it feels like you have been here forever and have always been a part of our family. I could not imagine a life without you, but it also does not seem very long ago since you were born. I still remember the day that you were born like it was yesterday you came into the world at 11.48am, six day's late and after putting me through 40 hour's of labour (you little tinker). From the moment you were born, you have been a daddy's girl, as soon as you heard his voice when you were born you stopped crying and your eye's followed him around the room. Now you still always want your daddy and your face light's up when he gets home from work.
You also look so much like your daddy everyone comments that you are his double. You also love your big sister Chloe and always want to play with her and be around her, even though you always pull her hair and pinch her thing's and annoy her. She love's you so very much and the bond and love between the two of you is amazing to watch.
You are such a happy little girl and you are always smiling and laughing, even at people you do not know. Everyone comments on what a happy little baby you are when we are out and about. We have been very lucky that you have always been a good sleeper from the day you were born, although we are still waiting for you to sleep all night as you often wake up during the night for a drink.
So much has happened in your very first year of life you got christened when you were four month's old and lots of people came to your christening and we had a lovely day. We celebrated your very first Christmas and you were very spoilt. And on Sunday we celebrated your very first birthday party and you had a lovely day at soft play with all your friends, you loved your birthday cake and all your lovely presents.
We have watched you grow from such a tiny little baby into a lovely little toddler. You first smiled at 5 weeks, you were rolling over at 12 week's, you were sitting up at 5 months and crawling at 7 months. You took your first steps at 9 months but did not start walking properly until the day before you turned 11 months, you now have your very first pair of shoes as you like to walk everywhere. You have eight teeth and your hair is starting to grow, you are learning new word's all of the time and you are starting to play with your toy's and you love watching doc mcstuffin and Sofia the first on t.v. You have such a lovely little personality, you are always smiling and laughing and giving us hugs and kisses. You never really cry unless you are tired or hurt. I really couldn't have wished for a better baby then you, you really are no bother at all.
We have had a fantastic year with you with lots of lovely days out as a family. You have loved the baby groups you have attended you have been to baby massage, baby yoga, baby music and toddlers and now you love baby swimming. You are even going to be a big sister in 3 month's time which is scary as you are still my baby girl, I think once you get used to having a new brother or sister you will love them just as much as you love Chloe. You will have a little playmate which I just know you will love.
We love you so very much Sophia you mean everything to us and we are so lucky to have you in our life. We have loved every second of this last year with you and I can not wait to see how you grow and change in the next year, I just know that we are going to have another fantastic year with you.
lot's of love, love from mummy xxx
