Happy New Year Guys!! Hope you all had a good Christmas, and enjoyed the New Year celebrations?
We surely did! Lauren turned one on New Years Day! On New Years Day 2016 I was rolling on the hospital floor, literally crawling around like a baby in so much pain! Fastforward a year and my baby is ONE! My mini fashionista is one. The sleepless nights, the poo stained vests and babygrows. All worth it. Honestly.
So on New Years Day we celebrated Lauren’s Birthday with our close family and friends. I chose a Minnie Mouse theme because Lo is my Minnie! Oh and I love Minnie Mouse.We purchased the yummiest cream sponge cake to cut on Lauren’s special day.
We got such amazing feedback from everybody who ate her cake. It was so hard not to have more than one piece, especially when I’m trying to lose some weight this year.
We hardly captured any smiles which is a shame, during events babies tend to get a bit fussy. It’s normal honestly, just aslong as you don’t get annoyed by it you will go on to have a good time. Trust me I have the experience from family visits and her Christening. The Diva in Lauren is always exposed.
Lauren got so many gifts with Christmas being a week earlier, so I’ve picked my top three gifts.
My Lolo has an obsession with keys! Anytime I have my keys she crawls into my handbag, to play with them. We also practically share a phone 🙄! I was really happy when my hubby bought her, her First Gadget Set from ELC.
Lauren officially has her own phone even though she still enjoys facetiming, and calling random numbers. The set also comes with a remote control which speaks in French, Spanish and English. Soon my Lolo will be counting in French hahaha mark my words! This set has keys too which is always a good distraction when she’s in her carseat fretting.
Another favourite gift was this cute jacket from Next.
I love dressing Lauren up and I can’t wait for her to wear this in the Spring with a pair of wellies and jeans ahhh. 😍
Here’s to a hundred more years of partying on New Years Day!
Happy 2017 to you all! ✨
