My 1 year old πŸ–€

And just like that, the fastest year of my life has happened! On Saturday 17th November my baby turned one.. yes one!! I know they say time goes fast, but I didn’t realise how fast! I feel like he’s just not a little baby anymore!

Freddie has quite honestly given me the best year of my life! It’s been a tough year.. emotionally, financially and physically, but if I had the choice I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Freddie is now properly walking! I can’t believe it, he prefers to walk over crawling now. He’s learnt how to stand up by himself from sitting, instead of using objects to pull himself up.

He has learnt how to kick a ball around, as well as pick one up and throw/ bounce it! It’s one of his favourite games at the moment. I could put him in an empty room with a ball and he would have the time of his life.

If you read my 11 month update you would have seen that one of my missions was to get Freddie to blow kisses.. well I succeeded! He still picks and chooses when he wants to do it (as do babies with anything) but he can definitely do it!

He’s now climbing things a lot more, and giving me mini heart attacks I’m sure!! He also loves crawling under chairs and tables, which is a nightmare when he screams because he’s stuck.. but he’s slowly working out how to get back out himself.

He has learnt how to do the most sarcastic laugh ever.. and he is honestly just such a chatterbox! He tries to copy things that you say.

This is probably one of my favourite videos of him! He should have been in bed but he was having none of it!

One of the things that I have learnt as this year has passed is to treasure every single moment. I can’t wait to see what another year brings us πŸ–€
