It must have gone well, as Christmas came slightly early in the shape of 2) her first present, a beautiful wooden pram that someone took her first non-furniture steps with. It currently houses lots of wooden blocks and some Angry Birds (thanks to my Gran for sending, we love it!)
Her first Christmas decorations. 4) I bought the ceramic star, made by a local artist as I wanted something we could remember every year, and 5) the horse was sent by my mum. This year we wisely went for a tiny tree we could keep away from curious hands, and it’s currently perched on our dining table – but will be planted in our garden after.
And finally, 5) a sneak preview of the first Christmas Day outfit (one of many). Looks like Santa may well be putting in an appearance this year, but with matching socks this time, I hope.
What have been your favourite festive firsts this year?
It seems strange to think that this time last year I was very pregnant, and so much lay ahead of us. Here’s to a whole lifetime of more firsts (and seconds…and so on!)
Happy Christmas x.
