This time last year I was having my epidural topped up to the max and Jason was telling me when to push. Now here we are, sitting around after a nice day celebrating Rose’s birthday with all the other families in the ante natal group. Six babies and six sets of parents, so quite a big gathering. We had cake made to my secret family recipe which was scarily chocolatey. All the babies had some but then crawled around mobbing whoever hadn’t finished theirs until every scrap was gone. Rose licked her plate in a frenzy and then cried until I got her some more. She also had Doritos, most of a banana, about five strawberries, several grapes, and that was just her afternoon snack.
Rose took some more steps today. They are running a book on her beating another baby at nursery to being the first to walk.
