It's Rosanna's first birthday today!! We're flying off to Sweden this afternoon so most of the celebrating will be done on other days but we did have cake for breakfast so I think she forgives us.
I feel a bit emotional about this update, in part because it seems as though the year milestone is looming & in part because I didn't realise Anna was 10 months until yesterday & for some weird reason that made me feel like a "bad parent". I don't know why & I don't think it's a good way to feel but it happens sometimes nonetheless, so there we go.
I'm a bit late posting this as the last few days have been crazy busy but...little lady is 9 months old & currently fast asleep on my lap - sucking her thumb - both possibly a result of teething as Rosanna's two bottom teeth finally pushed trough(!!!) & as far as I'm aware that it cause for a good nap. Most days she tends to have a doze either in the morning or the afternoon but I've not set her a routine so I don't really know or depend on them; however, night-time is generally 7pm to 7am depending on what I've got to do in the morning or the evening.
Evelyn is 3!!! There's now very little trace left of a toddler; she is, without a doubt, a young child & she is a truly lovely one. She's cheeky & funny, confident & a bit of an adrenaline junkie, caring & pretty. Her personality is a great mix of girly & boisterous, which I adore, & although she sometimes struggles to communicate what she wants (which results in rudeness or frustration) she more than makes up for it with her kindness.
Anna was lucky enough to be a flower girl at Jade & Dan's wedding on Thursday but I was so busy that morning that I wasn't able to get a photo of her. I'll come back to add one here after they receive the professional photos. It was a beautiful day & all of us feel so lucky to have been part of it, I couldn't be happier for them.
