happy new year
always something

one is one

Arg, everyone, we've been having an interesting time of it. We missed our court date (for reasons I will moan about in a later post), Jay is having a prolonged sleep regression where he wakes four or five times a night, and we are fairly wrecked.

However! This is not a weekend for complaining; we must celebrate, for Jay is one tomorrow. He is here. What a year. What a year. WHAT A YEAR. I'll be processing this for ever, I reckon. During the day, (she carefully stipulated) he is a marvel. All exploration and studying how hinges work, gazing into the washing machine in fascination, trying words out, charming shop assistants (the stranger danger is over, thank the heavens), much more relatable and biddable. Smiley, sweet, loud, thrilled with life. He eats fruit and pasta like a champion. He is just great. Many happy returns, little chap, your Ma loves you more than she can say.

I am going to go and make him a cake now.

Thank you for sticking with us this year, all. Be well. 





oh wooww and woohoo! 1 year old. congratulations! and well done on surviving year one and remembering to blog even.
big hugs from our holiday home.


Happy Birthday, Jay! He looks quite adorable here - I can't imagine how he isn't delightful day and night (hahahahaha! - Rotten children and their need to interrupt your peaceful sleep. It never ends. It does become less frequent, though.)

Good on you for surviving the first year, Twangy and the JB! Now, you're experts! (*snort*)


ONE! Oh Jay, your hair is very thick and sticky uppy! You are wonderful, and we are all so glad you are crawling around on that particular floor, trying to open that particular washing machine. Happy birthday, small person. I hope the cake was wonderful.


i try not to worry about those reasons you missed the court date for, but am thinking it must have been both important and urgent. Just hope your mother is well. (am ashamed to admit i have no clear memory of all your and JBs parents. Someones Father died, I think? they do, these days.)
Hope you all are well.
I still intend to blog, just with all that life happening so much happened since december, and it is time for taxes again..
hugs from between the tulips!
