Theo’s first birthday party 30/04/16
When my first son was just a few weeks old someone reminded me that by his first birthday he would be eating his own cake and this thought helped me through many desperate nights of endless breastfeeding! It is always extra special, therefore, to see a child turn one and be allowed to taste the cake. It’s a rite of passage that marks their move away from tiny baby and also an important moment for Mum as she understands that her son or daughter will not be dependent on her forever. This little man had a cake almost as big as he was and I love the way that he is turning to Dad, as if to ask “Am I really allowed to eat all of that?” Everyone else at the party was pretty excited about it too!
