Deacon is 1!!!!!

I can’t believe Deacon has been 1 for a whole week, it has gone so quickly.

We were lucky enough to spend Deacon’s 1st Birthday up in London, as last weekend I was attending the BritMumsLive blogging conference, with thanks to my sponsor SmarTrike. Deacon loving to always being the centre of attention came along with me for the best part of the Saturday to have many a cuddle and enjoy his first blogging conference out of my belly. Not before having an awesome picnic with Daddy in a park and taking in an outdoor show at Covent garden, what a 1st Birthday!

I thought I would share pictures of Deacon’s first Birthday weekend in London, lucky enough I have some AMAZING photographer friends who were with me at BM’s and took some lovely Birthday shots for me, so here comes some major cuteness.

My Handsome 1 year old was excellent on the Boots Opticians stand, how cute is he in glasses.

Then we got to have cuddles with so many friends, Aunty Kirsty top, Deacon’s (near) Birthday twin Seb and Aunty Sonia gets a cuddle

As with Addison I shall be taking shots of my babies at the time they were born each year, this year though I was lucky as Hayley from Shutterflies Photography took the photo, awesome isn’t it, she did an amazing job with a little boy who didn’t want to play ball

I think you can see Deacon had a lovely weekend, there were so many more people he got to meet and see but I forgot to get photos, thanks to Aunty Jenny for cuddles and the coolest gift. To Hayley of Frank PR for so many lovely words & to so many others for making my baby boy’s 1st Birthday memorable.


I love you so so much, we have had some hard times this past year, your poor little body has suffered, but you are now growing from strength to strength. 

You are my cheekiest child by far, but with the cutest smile that makes you melt more than angered. You empty my cupboards, you climb dangerous heights, you cry for cuddles but all make you the sweetheart you are.

I love having days out with you, just the 2 of us, you are a great shopper as you love to be experiencing the outside world, although you are still a little unsure of grass on your toes.

Thank you for coming into our family, for making us a whole, for being a fantastic (all be it annoying) little brother.

Now and forever I love you.
