Today Pixie had her first birthday. We are struggling to believe that she’s been here for a whole year as it has gone so fast. She is still a wee thing, wearing clothes that her brother and sister were wearing at 6 months. She has worn out the knees of several pairs of trousers recently having been wearing and crawling in them for so long but having started walking can’t wear the too long next size up ones just yet. I made her a couple of pairs of simple trousers from remnants over the weekend so hopefully we can make it a bit longer without needing to buy a third round of 3-6 months trousers.
We bought her a scuttle bug ride on which she is almost big enough to use easily. She can’t climb on by herself but can get off and is getting more successful at moving around. And her own water bottle which she’s super happy about because unlike the big kids ones this doesn’t get taken off her.
In general she’s a happy wee thing, trying to communicate, getting into mischief and trying to keep up with her siblings. She doesn’t really believe in naps and is not great at night but will at times play on her own (or spend her time bothering her siblings) so sometimes I get little bits of crafting time.
I made her cake, chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream and sugar paste flowers. She was super excited to see it and ate rather a large piece as well as some of the flowers.
