Happy First Birthday Baby of Mine


Aloha Sprinklerinos,

Can you believe it? Baby Glitter is one year old today! It feels like just yesterday I was writing THIS post about giving birth.

A year ago I was huffing and puffing and sharing a few choice words and then little Darcy Jane came into the world and turned our lives upside down.


I can't even explain how much my life has changed, and yet how much it hasn't. I'm still me, still Louise who uses the wrong words at the wrong times, Louise who can't resist a sparkly bracelet or a bright lipstick. But then I'm more patient, more accepting and feel 'full'. For the longest time I felt as though there was something missing, like there was something more I needed to feel content, and I found her exactly a year ago.

I have so many hopes and aspirations for myself and for Darcy, and I shall continue taking us on our merry journey towards them.

Until we reach them, I'll enjoy telling you about our steps there and bringing you along for the ride.

Happy First Birthday Darling Daughter Darcy, you bring me more than you'll ever know.

Mummypip!

xx

(A note :: I don't think I will be vlogging her birthday celebrations, but I will be instagramming them. If you don't have instagram, don't worry, the pictures will also be linked to my twitter account and I'll put them all in a blog post afterwards. x)

  6. aww Louise this made me emotional, My daughter is 18months now and she has grown up sooo fast. I love her at this age but I miss the newborn days too. It's crazy how fast they grow into a little toddler who can do lots for herself, Feels like yesterday me and my partner was laughing at her (in a nice way) pull newborn funny faces and tensing up when she did poos (you know what I mean), she couldn't even hold her head up, Now she's running round my flat like a hyper yoyo child shouting random words haha.
    I hope Darcy and yourself/family have a brillant day.
    And all your wishes and dreams come true.
    Lots of love Danielle Jane xxxxx

  32. Happy Birthday Baby Glitter! I know you are too young to read this, haha, but I'm hoping this blog goes on forever and ever and hopefully one day you will get to see this post. :D Through the last few years, I've had a rough go of it and there are days that I feel really down. But then pops up a blog post with your precious little face or a vlog where I get to hear your laughter and baby gurgling, and it makes my day. You bring an instant smile to my face and the day is instantly better. Just by being you, you have brought joy to the lives of people you will never meet or ever know. As I said, I hope this blog goes on and on...I look forward to stories of mummy and Baby Glitter tea parties, funny little stories of Little Darcy getting into mummy's make up, and Little Darcy outfits of the day! Sweet Darcy, you have so much to look forward to with you're amazing mother. Lovely Louise will be with you through thick and thin, and you will never find anyone who loves you as much as she does. Keep a close watch on your mother Sweet Darcy. As far as being a fine human being...your mother has it figured out. She'll never steer you wrong! In my minds eye I can see the great memories you will make together. And lets not leave out that father of yours! Though I only know of him through a picture here or there, and his left shoulder making its way into a video, (heehee)I know he must be just as amazing if Lovely Louise adores him so. You are very blessed Baby Glitter. Here's to you Sweet Darcy, may you have nothing but blessings in the years to come!

    For Louise: Thank you for sharing this sweet angel with us. Like I said, she has brought so much joy on some of the hardest days. You are amazing. You are a blessing to all who know you and to all of us subscribers. You have definitely put some sparkle into my life. You are an inspiration to me. I dare say I'm about ten years your senior (eek to my 36th birthday the other day...I better have kids soon, or they shall come out looking like Sponge Bob Square Pants!), but you are someone I look up to. You are just so lovely and a genuine person. I am so glad I found you here online, oh, almost a year ago! Much love to you Lovely Louise!
