Maths was never my strongest subject at school – I’m more right brained than left.
One thing I do know is that this month, the bank balance took a hard hit when we celebrated 2 birthdays in our household. MegaBeth turned 13 at the beginning of the month and Jessica-Leigh had her very 1st birthday yesterday.
MegaBeth loves her art and music. She wants to be a tattoo artist and was very pleased with her ‘One Sketch-a-Day’ Journal, along with a new iPod complete with loads of her favourite albums.
Then 16 days later, Jessica-Leigh was ONE YEAR OLD!
In what feels the blink of an eye, a whole year has gone past!
The picture below I took when Jessica-Leigh was maybe just 10 minutes old. A very traumatic but precious time – something Glen & I will never forget.
It’s been a wonderful year and we are are amazed at how we can survive on such little sleep. The rewards are the best and make up for the sleepless nights for sure. I find that parents always say that and you think “yeah yeah…” but it’s true. Though I am secretly adding up how many years worth of sleep my girls owe me!
Jessica-Leigh in her 1st year has learned to do so many things. In the last couple of weeks she has just started to walk along whilst holding onto furniture.
Yesterday afternoon we had some of our family over to do the fastest 1st birthday celebration in the world. Her attention span and routine can’t cope with a long party, though I look forward to those in years to come. So it was just lots of wrapping paper and gifts flying everywhere!
I don’t think Jessica-Leigh knew what was going on, though she did take a big interest in her balloon
Grandma and Grandad bought a “This Little Piggy” puppet book which went down a treat
As did the DVD of Waybuloo. She wouldn’t put it down for the rest of the day.
Even I liked the little piggy book!
Some lovely clothing from friends and family too, along with a GREAT find – an AC/DC t-shirt
That got a big spontaneous applause after daddy gave his rendition of “Highway to Hell”
(I will be posting a baby rock clothing blog after some great finds!)
Appreciating grandads beard
After all the mayhem, a chilled out moment watching Waybuloo with a cute little smile on her face
I had to be quick with this picture as the champagne was consumed faster than the gifts were unwrapped
The June Birthday Girl’s together.

Mmmm cake! (Made by grandma)
Happy 1st Birthday Jessica -Leigh!
Tomorrow I will be showing you the awesome fun we had on the Makeover + Shoot Day!
