Hurrah! Saturday! It's the boy's birthday weekend, so my family travelled down from Manchester for his first birthday party which is tomorrow. Today's #366 picture is Dexter with his cousins: Ellie and Ruby.
The girls are my sister's children. She's a brilliant mummy and a source of much 'mum wisdom' and reassurance. I always remember our NCT teacher telling us that women should not have babies in isolation. My mum and my sister came down to Brighton two days after Dexter was born: it was like the cavalry arriving.
I wish Dexter saw more of his family - on both mine and my husband's sides. Geography and our very busy lives make that a little tricky. I guess that's why special occasions become even more special.
