Reflecting on the first year of parenting

Tall Boy's First Birthday

I wrote this post shortly after we celebrated the NCT babies’ first birthdays. It was just before they turned one and the emotion of the occasion caught me off guard. I blinked back tears as we all sang Happy Birthday to the bemused babies, who were sitting in high chairs round a table, about to eat their first ever birthday cake. Tall Boy wolfed down a whole black forest gateau cupcake, which is hardly surprising giving his mother’s weakness for cake and afternoon tea.

Tall Boy is now fast approaching his second birthday, and this post has been half drafted for almost a year. It was written to mirror my pregnancy update posts, to reflect on where we were at as Tall Dad and I approached the end of our first year as parents. Better late than never right.
