It was Miss Jocie's first birthday yesterday! Here she is pleased as punch, covered in Vegemite in her p'j's, and yep her present is wrapped in Christmas paper!!
She got this trike, it is supposed to grow with her till she is 3 or so, I hope so!! It has one of those parent's handles at the back, hoping to use it on our walks/bike rides. (excuse the mess in the background, that you probably didn't notice until I pointed out!)
I decided at 5pm the day before that the trike wasn't "enough". So I stayed up until 11:30 or so sewing up this dress and a pair of matching bloomers, Despite her face in this photo she really did love her dress! She was a bit worn out at this stage! The dress is the "flower girl dress" from Weekend Sewing, The bloomers were the "ruby bloomers" from the same book. The dress has a lot of modifications to make it wearable.
She was a little wary of the flame!
But didn't hesitate at all to chow down on her mud cake!
I have a feeling that she really liked it!
And yep, it was store bought, unfortunately we have had a bug doing the rounds, so we didn't have as much fun as we normally would have. I would have done a post on how much I love her, and how special she is too us, and how much I enjoy watching her grow and change, but I'm in tears just thinking about it.
Needless to say, Jocie my darling you are loved!
