First birthday ever!

This time last year we were  in the special care baby unit looking at our poorly baby in her "plastic box".

After an amazing year  it was very special watching her open her presents this morning, lots of little gifts to mark this important occasion.

To celebrate we all went to Buddy's ( a local american diner) for breakfast.  It is always an adventure eating out with the family;  enjoyable but we can never fully relax with six different ways of  causing chaos waiting to happen.  However the only mishap today was a very wet floor and a near miss for the chef walking past!  We managed to leave having had lots of fun and delicious pancakes.

pancake man becomes cat woman!

Happy first ever birthday to our precious Ruby.....

we are so pleased you joined our family.
