{happy birthday, tilly}

What a day! Tilly woke up as a one-year-old, and we tried to give her the best day yet, with candles...


...cheesy bagels and bubbles for breakfast...


...presents in the morning before Daddy went to work...


...including a fabulous wooden Noah's ark, a beautiful hat, dress and shirt, finger puppets, a book about Owl Babies, a little Danish rabbit...


... a felt book from Mummy...


...the most amazing card from Daddy (Tilly's head on a dog's body -- she loves it!), plus a brilliant video of her first year...


...plenty of wrapping paper to chew on, and furry friends to share the fun with...


...play time with her friends in the morning, and an afternoon of cooling off in her paddling pool...



...relaxing in the back garden (more on that interesting tray of goodies tomorrow!)...



...raspberry jelly for birthday dessert...


...and a little photo shoot with the big red clock at 7:23pm, to mark exactly a year since she arrived...


...stories, a cuddle, and off to bed as a one-year-old.


An amazing day with an amazing little person. Thanks for all the lovely birthday wishes, and for all your love over the past year! Here's to another that's just as full...
