We had a quiet birthday celebration with just the family. We had a fish and chip tea at the beach - Benjis favourite place to be, then came home to open his presents. he really wasn''t too interested in gift opening but luckily Sophie was and she happily ''helped'' him. Sophie even got a present of her very own to celebrate being a big sister for a whole year and doing a fine job of it s well! Benjis main present was a ride-on hippo with peek a boo bricks. he also had more wheelie toys - including a wheelie giraffe and I bought him the cutest soft toy giraffe (his absolute favourite animal) to treasure from grandpa who would so have loved to be present at this special milestone. He had heaps of new clothes including the cutest ""big boy cap'' just like his big brothers!
We made him a Pooh Bear cake and he was very interested in the candle, even trying to ''blow'' (read lots of spit!). He loved his first ever piece of cake and we got lots of photos of a very messy little man.
HAPPY birthday precious little boy, you are so, so loved. Have and awesome year being one.
