I think the night before birthdays is like New Year’s Eve, full of reflection and reminiscing of the year passed and anticipation to what lies ahead.
I was an emotional mess the night before Bella turned 1 as I was reflecting on the best year of my life, wondering where it went and preparing to go back to work and I wasn’t much different on Monday night either!
What a year this one has been, learning to walk, talk (we are sure she doesn’t stop), going on her first holiday and becoming a big sister. We have watched Bella go from baby to little girl.
As Bella’s birthday was on a Tuesday this year and her Daddy was working we give her presents on Saturday before her birthday party, so her birthday turned into a long weekend of celebrating (totally acceptable when your turning 2).
Monday we went for breakfast then went looking for a playhouse for both the girls (maybe for me too). I can picture lots of fun days in the garden in the years ahead, I have the best memories in mine as a kid.
Tuesday we headed to soft play and had a tea party in the evening with most of the people that have helped us out in the past 2 years. These babies don’t raise themselves and I thank them for all their love and support.
Happy 2nd birthday Bella bird, you make me as proud as punch!
