The first of many birthdays

Yesterday was a very special day – Bubby turned one! The first of many birthdays!


What have we done? I made this egg-free and nut-free sweet potato brownie for all his friends and carers at daycare and they were a hit! And there’s more to come this weekend.

Despite the busyness of marking this special occasion, I’ve been hit by waves of nostalgia.

This time last year, the SO and I were in a birthing suite at the hospital. I was hooked up to the induction drugs and bouncing on a fit ball, while Skyping with my sister in Germany.

Labour wasn’t quite what I expected, but after several hours, Bubby would take his first breath and scrunched up his face in the first of his many frowns.

And things were never the same since.
