I can’t believe it’s been a year! This time last year I was wondering, hoping, that I was in labour. Here we are twelve months on and we have a gorgeous little girl who is more wonderful that we could have imagined!!

This morning the HH and I were talking about the significance of the number 27 amidst it all.

Mark and I were both 27 when LP was born (though I was “only just”!)
LP was born at 6.27pm
She was born on the 23rd of the 4th. 23 + 4 = 27
Just before she was born we bought our first house, number 27!

Bizzare.

I am so looking forward to tomorrow! Shame she’ll have no idea… :)

There is a fabulous blog I read called The Big Girl Blog and C.C. had me hooked at her first post as she shared the story of her life with eloquence, humour and grace. She is amazing! I wish I could be friends with her in real life!!!

I’ve just read a great post she wrote that was so awesome I had to share it here. C.C I hope that’s cool with you!

She really nails it in the last 2 paragraphs when she writes…

There will always be men who aren’t attracted to you no matter what your size. And if your level of self worth is contingent on how often you are passed around by a group of attractive jerks, you will never understand how valuable you truly are.

When we make the decision to change our bodies, I feel like we often forget that there’s some inside work that has to take place as well. Working on having pride in who we are and not what we look like is probably the hardest lesson ever, but I feel like one of the gifts of a weight struggle is the opportunity to find a level of self love so deep that a million Abercrombie models couldn’t take it away.

If you are interested in some of my own thoughts on this topic you might like to read one of my old posts.

I still don’t have any photos of yesterday but I have taken some happy snaps today that I thought I’d share. Unfortunately my work computer (the one I have with me) doesn’t have any photo-shopping software, not even Picasa (and it won’t let me download it) so these are “raw”. I am sure you won’t mind too much :)

Reading about the First Easter, with her Dad (a belated Easter present from us)

Just hanging around


Ooooooh


These are some I took at home last week and just uploaded.
Her new “thing” is to crawl into the pantry and have a look around.


She is particularly partial to eating the cinnamon…


but sometimes gets a bit confused about which end it opens!

Hope you have enjoyed this little glimpse at ever-growing Little One!

Today we celebrated a wonderful day, baptising the Little One! I can’t wait to load up the photos when we got home to show you. Between family and our photographer friend (who was so amazingly patient with taking hundreds of photos!) I am sure there will be some gorgeous shots to share…and I can’t wait!
