Tiny Dancer: A Year in Pictures

Wow! What's that?

Mummy: This photo looks just like one of me when I was a baby, ask me, and I’ll show you.

Yes! Got the bed to myself at last.

Mummy: The competitive streak is in you, even if it is only winning some bed space.

I'm not reading if you keep staring!

Mummy: You’re around 4 months old here, I chose this picture because the expression on your face is so grown up.

Look at that smile

Mummy: A sneaky little smile lets me know that you were happy to be here.

That was funny Daddy

Mummy: Daddy gets the biggest smiles when you’re playing your silly games.

Mum, this isn't going to stain is it?

Mummy: We did lots of activities, I don’t know if you enjoyed them, but we enjoyed doing them with you.

Cheeky Chumpy (wumpy doo daa)

Mummy: You loved when I was taking photos of you, you’re around 6 or 7 months here.

Pretty Girl

This outfit was pretty girly for you, we favoured combats usually. (I’m wondering what you will be wearing if and when you ever read this)

Erin on her Belly

Mummy: Having fun on your belly, this was one of the first times you rolled over, but you didn’t really like being on your front much.

I love you!

Mummy: I think you looked perfect in this photo 🙂

So what do they taste like?

Mummy: We did a lot of colouring together but I used to get quite frustrated that all you wanted to do was eat the crayons rather than colour nice pictures!

Smiles before bed

Mummy: You’re growing up so fast, but at bedtime you still look like our little baby.

Tub and a Ball

Mummy: Playing in the water, moments after this you tipped the whole tub over yourself!

So Erin, if blogging isn’t too historic (and I remembered to renew my domain name!) you are reading this, I’m not sure how old you are but I hoped you enjoyed reading a little bit about some of our thoughts and feelings during your first year. I don’t think I included anything embarassing and if I did – I’m sorry.

Why Tiny Dancer? In hospital, the night before having you, for some reason it was the only song that was keeping me (and you) calm 🙂 (Tiny Dancer by Elton John)

With Love Mummy & Daddy (Daddy doesn’t ‘do’ blogging, but this was his idea!)

    How absolutely precious. Hopefully your ‘little dancer’ will look back one day and smile at us old fossils.

    I love the photo where it looks like she’s sticking her tongue out (7th down), and the one where she has her little cap on. What a little angel!
