Junior turned 1 over the weekend…
I still can’t believe it if I’m honest! I kept checking to make sure the date was right! I know I say it all the time but this year really is flying by too quick!
It was also my birthday on Sunday so we figured we’d kill two birds with one stone and make life easier for us all. It’s not like Junior is going to remember his first birthday anyway, right?
First of all, Junior is walking!! He started walking around 11 months and he’s a pro now! The guy is a little ninja with his walking – he could actually sneak up on you and has done a few times already! The funniest part is when we put him in our bed for a nap and then he wakes up, gets off the bed and comes looking for us in the living room or kitchen! It’s always a surprise . Or better yet, when he does this at night and I wake up to an empty bed! The guy just gets on with it and doesn’t send anyone!
Here’s a cute little video of him walking which I posted on

And we have a WALKER!! At least a wannabe one! Junior has officially taken he's first steps! He'll be running in no time!! Right at the 11 months mark too! So excited!! 😍😍😍 Ties in nicely with my #newblogpost on things I've learnt about being a mum again – the link is in my profile. #proudmama #babyboy #walkingat11months #callmemummy #mummyblogger #juniorisonthemove #happybaby #parenting #11monthsold #howtimeflies
We are still breastfeeding … I’m trying to stop now that he is on cow’s milk but the little man once again has a mind of his own. I’m glad we hit the 12 months mark so now I feel we can stop at any time especially now as he now drags my shirt with me when he wants it, sort of like ‘give it to me woman!’ So that has got to stop!
So what did we do over our birthday weekend? Hubby and I went to the movies to see Deadpool, we got our birthday cake (as is tradition) and had some friends over on Saturday so that was good fun – hubby wasn’t feeling great so we took it easy on him. Aj ‘helped’ Junior open all he’s presents and showed him how to play with them as a big sister concerned. She also made sure we sang happy birthday to him and made a card for him in nursery which was so lovely!
All in all, it was a lovely relaxing weekend. I’m just thankful to God for seeing another birthday with all my favourite people in the world and that is the best birthday present ever…
Thank you all for the birthday wishes and prayers for Junior and I! Really appreciate! Love you guys!
And thanks to Cheryl from Jammy Jam Cakes for making another birthday cake – inside and outside! The cake didn’t last a day!
