Sophia turned one last week and we had a lovely day, she was spoilt with some lovely presents and we had a lovely little party for her at the local soft play which she really enjoyed. She loved her birthday cake the only thing missing from the day was her big sister Chloe who had jetted off to Spain early on the morning of her birthday for a week.
Due to Chloe being away on Sophia's birthday we held a small tea party the day before for Sophia, Chloe and her cousin Heidi with cakes and party food. Chloe give Sophia a present, a Doc Mcstuffin ride-on which Sophia loved as she is Doc Mcstuffin mad.
On the morning of Sophia's birthday, she woke up early at around 6am and we brought her downstairs and she was amazed when she saw the living room.The night before me and her daddy had decorated it with banners and balloons and set her new toys up in the living room for her. We got her a pink smart trike bike, a ball pool and balls, a little blow-up Doc mcstuffin armchair and a talking lambie ted off Doc mcstuffin. We didn't want to get her to many presents as she has so many toys already and she got so many presents of family and friends too. She loved her ball pool and spent most of the morning sitting in it playing with her toy's. I think the excitement got too much for her though as she was flat out asleep by 8am having her morning nap.
We brought Sophia a lovely little party dress and cardigan to wear on her special day from next (I love that shop for children's clothes) and she looked super cute in it. We then headed to the soft play where we had invited ten of Sophia's little friends and relatives to join her for her birthday. Sophia loves the soft play and being around other children, and our house is far too small to invite all the family and friends around for a celebration. The children spent an hour and a half playing on the bouncy castles and slides and Sophia loved just running around after the other children, she really loved the slides although she was a bit unsure of the bouncy castles at first.
Then the children all had a meal and Sophia had chicken nuggets and chips, she loved them and polished them all off which we were amazed at as its the first time she has eaten something like that before.
We had got Sophia a Sofia the First birthday cake made, as we had a Sofia the First themed birthday party. The invites were Sofia the first, the goody bags, balloon and the cake as it is one of her favourite TV shows. When we brung the cake out and everyone sung happy birthday to her she looked so happy although she didn't have a clue what was going on and was trying to grab the cake.
After the party, we headed to the local Wetherspoons for some lunch with some of our family but Sophia was shattered and fell asleep in her pram. She loved opening her presents when she returned home and she got some lovely toys, a swing for the garden and lots of clothes and some money which we are going to use to buy her a slide as she loved the ones at soft play. She loved her birthday cake (so did me and her daddy) it was delicious.
Sophia had a really great day and she laughed and smiled all day long, she loved all the attention and her presents. I can't believe she is now a one-year-old toddler! We had a fantastic day, it was lovely to celebrate her day with family and friends. It is a day that me and her daddy will remember fondly forever as it was such a lovely, relaxed, happy day.
