In his first year, he has learnt to crawl, has five teeth, says Mum and Dad and throws a ball better than most five year olds. He's a boys boy and loves nothing more than rolling around the floor with his Dad or making a dirty mess of himself. Parenthood is a much better gig than I ever dreamed of and I can't imagine what I did in my spare time pre Ewan.
I've taken a few pics of the day for you to have a squiz at:
|This was before the mayhem of 36 guests arriving. The weather was ordinary so we had to all cram inside together. It was quite overwhelming at times for me but Ewan was oblivious and loved every minute. Oh and yes, that is Gus the cat in the tunnel!|
|This is Ewan's Tina the dalmation dog cake. It turned out quite well in the end but it was a bit touch and go when I was putting it together!|
|A few Gus the cat inspired cupcakes.|
|This was an idea I stole from a lady at work. How cute are the Tiny Teddies driving their little chocolate cars!|
|Opening presents this morning on his actual birthday. He was spoilt and loved all the new books and toys.|
|Gus found himself a quiet place amongst the mayhem!|
|Tina our muse checking out her clone.|
Today is a total write off. I'm exhausted, Ewan's exhausted so we're just chilling out at home, reminiscing on that overwhelming time this time last year which was Ewan's first day in the world.
