Jack turns One

Can't believe how fast this year has flown by. This tiny little 6 pound something baby,

has turned into this cheeky-tantrum throwing-screeching-almost running toddler!

He is the sweetest little thing with a HUGE personality. He is turning into the bully of the family (stealing the title from his older brother) he will take things from Eamon who will in turn start crying and let Jack take them! Jack doesn't like to share his mum with anyone and gets very cross if the other two have a cuddle with me. He still wakes anywhere from 2 to 4 times a night - but is pretty good at going back to sleep after a feed and cuddle.

He started out so much smaller than his siblings but I have no doubt he will continue to stack on the chubb and attempt to rival his brother in the "brute" department.

Jack's favourite past times include making others laugh, opening the fridge and tasting anything that looks even slightly 'off ', destroying his sisters intricate games, eating rocks and all other cheeky pursuits.

We had a lovely day it was such a sunny one too! We started off taking a long time to work out that there was something IN the gift (the phone was more interesting)!

After that we headed to Hawley Beach for a play with church play group. Jakc LOVED the water and would have gone in to the deep water if not for his sisters watchfullnes and I was keeping an eye out too!
(Did you know there were mermaids at Hawley? Here are two sunning themselves on a rock!)

Then home for a bath and sleep before cake! Happy birthday to our beautiful baby!

We love Jack - he brings a lot of love and laughter into our home and we look forward to him being the 'peacemaker' that his baby blessing referred to!!

Sitting on "Old Pop's" Chair (Harry Triffitt), just before bed on his birthday - check out that face!

What a happy and energetic boy. Can't believe he's 1 already...though Will is only 2 months off that milestone himself. Hard to believe how quickly they grow and develop their quirks and uniqueness. Love the nudie shots at the beach. x
