Today is Sam's first birthday! I can't believe that this time last year I was pacing round the garden having contractions before going to the hospital and demanding an epidural before they even opened the delivery room door (I got one immediately - in fact I got two........only neither of them worked - I hate that anethsitist!). Given that he was 9lb 13oz I think I deserve presents more than Sam. Its gone so quickly tho I can't believe he is one already. He has been complete joy and we can't imagine life without him now.
As you can see most of the cake ended up on the kitchen floor but I think he liked it. Izzy bought him a little toy monkey which I get the feeling he will not be allowed to play with as shes currently sleeping with it in her bed. Its the thought that counts tho right??
Controlled crying update - Its works!! (says with fingers and toes crossed - this is sooooo going to jinx it). Last night he slept from 7.30pm to 8am without waking up. Hurrah!!
