Another birthday

Hip hip hurray for another birthday. This is how it’s gonna be: just three days after Ella it is Mum’s celebration.  Of course we already had the party on Saturday, when Ella turned one. Gorgeous summer weather, so all kids outdoors on the trampoline swing-set playhouse and sandpit. And although all eyes were on our youngest girl (with a cake, party games, many friends and lots of presents) Mum was not forgotten. She got her own birthday cake with candles and the lot. And we sang for her too.

Happy Birthday Mum, with many years to come in health and happiness!

PS. Nora now seems to think that it is party time every day. Who’s birthday is next? 

Ella's first birthday

Big birthday today: our little Ella turned one! Can you believe how fast that went? It feels like it was only yesterday when mum was struggling to give birth to this well sized baby. Since then Ella has developed into a real personality. Sometimes calm and observing, sometimes full-on and loud, much more self-sufficient than her big sister, and almost always very happy. Just look at the pictures below, one for every month of her first year. If that doesn’t make you smile, what will?

We had a big birthday party with lots of kids and great weather today. Thanks everyone for the birthday wishes, the cards and the many many presents. Ella had a fantastic day!
More about the party in three days, when it’s mum’s turn to wave the birthday flag. For now we just say: Happy birthday Ella!!!
