Lottie’s first birthday celebrations

With a birthday nearly two weeks ago, our celebrations for Lottie turning one are just about done now. It’s been a blast celebrating her first year, but I’ll admit I’m quite glad I don’t have to do any baking.

I thought a little round-up of how we marked this big milestone would be a nice way to remember… I’m likely to forget by the time she’s old enough to ask.

On Lottie’s actual birthday, we were lucky enough to have Mr M home from work and decided to spend the day just as three. She woke up to a huge pile of presents and was delighted to see her haul. Although I don’t think she had a clue what was going on, she definitely picked up on the excitement and once she realised there were toys inside that paper, she was over the moon!
