Happy 1st Birthday Moo

Last year Mollie came into this world on Mothers day, and what a Mothers day. I wasn’t even sure if I was going to have her on that day, I was due to be induced. So I had no idea. My last post I wrote a Mollies 1 year update if you want to have a read.

At the weekend we planned to give Mollie a 1st birthday much like her older brother had for his. A gathering of family and friends to celebrate that first big milestone.

So the night before we tidied up and set to work putting up some crepe paper chains and blowing up balloons. All ready for the party the next day.

It was Sunday so Henry still had a swimming lesson so he did that and when they came back we set the rest of the decorations. Nothing to fancy just some banners and a party table cloth.

It was so lovely to have so many important people all together in one house. It warms my heart to know that even after 4 and a half years ‘mummy club’ is still so important to us that we still try and make to each others special occasions. Even if we miss regular play dates.

Mollie wasn’t too overwhelmed by the amount of people, although she may have been a little confused as to why there was a lot of people. All the older children were playing really nicely together too.

4th Birthday and an interview with my 4 year old.

This post is for you Henry as much as it’s for us, it’s a way for you to look back on your birthday in years to come. For us to show you what things we did on your special day. So for as long as you want us to we will strive to make it special. All because you were the one that made us who we are now and you were the one to make us Mummy and Daddy. So here’s your 4th birthday. Happy Birthday Little Man.

The night before Henrys birthday we’ve started a little tradition, nothing too extravagant as its something we would like to keep up as long as he wants too. We put up birthday banners and make a present pile with some balloons. We try to get a helium balloon of his age too, just because, why not. It all helps to add a little excitement to his morning the following day. If you want to have a look at the gifts we got him have a read in Birthday Gifts for 4 year old boy.

He was much more excited about his birthday this year I think he understood more. He came downstairs in the morning and didn’t know where to look. It was a simple morning he opened his presents and had a little go on his new bike. After getting ready for the day, he took the bike outside, you can read more about that in ‘Big boys bike’.
