We celebrated Clara’s first birthday yesterday. I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since she joined our family – yet in other ways it feels like she has always been part of our lives.

imageWe had a tea party in the house, so I spent most of Tuesday baking scones, cupcakes and of course Clara’s birthday cake.

When I was pregnant we used to call the baby Nemo. We didn’t know if we were having a boy or girl, so giving my bump a nickname was nicer than saying ‘it’ all the time. Plus I think it helped Izzy to bond with her as-yet-unknown little sister. So when I was deciding what cake to make I thought a Finding Nemo one would be a nice idea!

We bought her a huge Nemo toy from the Disney Store, though I kept having to retrieve it from Izzy as she has taken quite a liking to it!

It was a lovely day. Clara didn’t nap all day either and finally fell asleep on her Daddy’s knee about 6.30. Exhausted from all her partying!
