After going slightly overboard for Amelia's first birthday last year and rightly so after all you only have your first birthday once right?! I didn't see the point on having a party this year as not many people would be coming over on her actual birthday I didn't really want to waste money or time. Instead we had a lovely chilled day at home with some visitors throughout the day. We will be going to the zoo on Thursday for her birthday treat is the weather is nicer so fingers crossed it is!
It was great to see Amelia's face when she came downstairs as she knew something was happening and couldn't wait to see what. She loved opening all of her presents and was very spoilt with a slide, trampoline, tunnel, table and chairs, a wooden laptop, mixer, innotab and a lot more! We watched Frozen on repeat and she sang along all day and played with her cousin until the TV stand was shattered to pieces and we had to move the slide and trampoline out of the living room!
We ate birthday cake pancakes and Ice cream (recipes on the blog soon) as well as cupcakes and we were truly stuffed! I think she really enjoyed her birthday and we can't wait to take her to the zoo again on Thursday. Now to sort the house out as there's toys everywhere and her bedroom is full of all her new things as we had to clear the living room after the TV incident.
Don't mind her dirty socks, every time some one came to the house she would escape out the door and run down the road as she wanted to go to the park ha ha!! She's a right little madam as she's been able to unlock the door for a few months now we have to take the keys out of the door after we lock it each time.
