Darcey has her first birthday!!

Darcey celebrated her first birthday on Sunday and it was just perfect! We had a lovely little afternoon tea party at the shop complete with a cake that my sister and I made plus a chocolate brownie tower covered in pink glitter and fairies!!
I have found the weeks leading up to Darcey's birthday really emotional, I think because of the dreaded post natal depression that I experienced, I had never imagined celebrating her first birthday and being truly happy. But I was and I am, I love being Darcey's mummy and am so incredibly proud of everything she does!
 I haven't updated you lovely people for a while as to how she is doing, she has her two top and bottom teeth which makes her look pretty cute; we are very close to walking, she is pulling herself up on everything so I don't think that it will be long until she toddles off! She can say two words, Dada and Lola (my sister's dog) she sometimes says them to the right people but we're working on it! She loves books (thank god) she has a big box of them in our lounge and she likes to get them out, every single one and look through them. I try and read to her every day, sometimes she is happy to sit and listen and sometimes she just wants to chew the corner of the book! Everyone says to us how very content and chilled out she is and this always makes me smile inside as I hope it means that we are doing an okay job as she seems to be pretty happy and that is all that matters!

Sounds like she had a lovely birthday. The first birthday is always an emotional one - it's a huge milestone but you wonder how it came around so fast.

And that cake is gorgeous.

What a lovely post! Firstly, I'm super glad that you survived PND and have emerged through it (everyone is different in how/when/which way but it is always so debilitating). You should be super proud to have battled on even if you weren't always sure why you should! Now you get to see why you should and what you have and get to experience and enjoy once you emerged! No doubt you and Dr S are doing an incredible job. We can see you are raising a beautiful, happy little lady and that says so much about your parenting and love for Darcey (and good genes lol). Love much xox
