Last week was a very exciting week in our house. Apart from being my birthday on the Tuesday (which doesn’t seem so important now), our little princess had her 1st birthday!!!
Thursday 14th June 2012 – HAPPY BIRTHDAY BELLA!!!
We got up extra early so she could open up some cards and presses before MrV went to work, here she is playing peek-a-boo with one of her new books… she did this with most of her cards too!
MrV and I bought her a Smart Trike, I think she was happy with it…
and it even came with a handy little phone incase she needs to make an important phone call!
Granny and Grandpa came over a bit later and we all went for a trip into town with her new toy, I got to play at steering her, though I think I need a bit more practice! We saw a couple of friends who had got her pressies too, she is a very lucky girl 🙂
On the Friday (15th June) MrV booked the day off work so we took her for her first visit to Whispnade Zoo. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t as great as it had been the day before, but she got to see lots of different animals and she seemed to love it. Here are a few of my favourite pics from the zoo…
Checking out the monkeys…
Up close and personal with a hippo!
She spotted a tiny mara
This is my favourite 🙂
On Saturday (16th June), it was Bella’s party! MrV and I were already exhausted after being up til nearly 1am the night before baking and icing cakes, and putting up the balloons and banners, it was going to be a tiring day! Little miss chilled out in her pj’s until Granny and Grandpa got round, then they took her out for a walk so we could hoover in peace! It wasn’t long before the guests started arriving, perfectly timed with the birthday girl waking up from her morning nap. Here are my favourite pics from the day…
What are those flashy light things mummy?
Ooh, my cakes!
This is my absolute favourite, my very little birthday princess 🙂
So much has happened in the space of a year, it’s gone so very quick. Whatever happened to my teeny tiny baby?! She’s definitely growing up already, I can’t wait to show her all of the photos and cards when she’s older, she was (is) a very spoilt little miss, I hope she enjoyed her birthday 🙂 xxx
