Alice's first year (photo heavy)

Can you believe Alice is now one year old! 
I thought I'd take the opportunity to choose a random photo from each month of her first year (plus a couple more ;o)  )

 Just minutes old and who could have guessed how much we'd all love her and enjoy spending as much time as possible with her. I became a bragging Grandma overnight :o)
 With Uncle Hugh
 and Aunty Em.
We were so lucky to have Claire, Craig and Alice living with us and getting to spend so much time with the new family.

 And on Friday, ONE YEAR OLD :o)
Trying to open presents with her teeth lol!

It was so lovely to spend time with Alice on her first birthday. Claire had a little party at the flat for her friends with children, in the morning, and then we had a family tea at our house in the afternoon.

Thank you Alice for such a fun filled year, you've brought so much joy to our lives and I feel so very lucky to be your Grandma. I can't wait to watch you grow and develop over the coming year and spend lots more time with you. I love you more than I could have imagined xxx

  8. No, I cannot believe she is already a year old! The photos you posted are just so sweet, Rhona. I have loved watching Alice grow and change through your blog (and Facebook). I still remember when you posted that first ultrasound photo of her. :o)
