here we are, baby girl, one year later! one year overflowing with so much, good moments and more challenging ones but still such a sweet sailing ride so far. since you were born, you haven’t been ill ONCE and your strong personality is starting to smack through more and more – nobody step on those little toes!
and yet, look at your eyes. look at that kindness. how gentle and caring you are towards anyone you meet. such a great balance: not leaning into situations, always speaking your mind and enjoying every moment as it comes. i hope this is a true reflection on your main stances in life.

happy 1st birthday, my love.
the first of many, many more.

family came by this saturday for some tea & scones.
a bit of playtime with big brother and little cousin.
some giggling and cuddling.
starting to build new memories in this rekindled place.

this is you absorbed in your uncle’s features:
you are very much fascinated by the way mouths move, eyes blink and noses twitch.

upper teeth have been making their appearance, sprouting through these last weeks. a lot of drooling, discomfort and fingers into mouth to help ease the teething pain. besides that, you have been showing more and confidence in standing on your on two feet and walking about without any assistance. heart twinges for how fast you are growing but i am absolutely in love with witnessing your developments.
