A year ago I wrote this.

Emily Ursula Pauline Hudspeth

Life changes everything and never more so when that life is a new one. Hello Emily, a much longed for first daughter to my brother-in-law and his partner and who was born on Wednesday . I think it's safe to say that for Karen and Leonard life will never be the same again. It will always be better. Welcome to the family little one. Welcome to the world. May you know only love. See you soon. I have so many wondrous stories to tell you.

Today, in one short, magical year she has become this and fulfilled many of my dreams for her along the way:

Happy First Birthday Emily.

She's a pretty baby and with a certain spark to her eye that suggests she may be a lively one. Is her hair going to be red?

Alistair said...

Hullo MM,

Right on both counts. She's a live wire to be sure and has just passed her first year development assessment with flying colours and above average ability levels.

And her Mum's a ginger!
