Our little girl turned 18 months old this week which is crazy! No the cake isn’t for her, that was for my birthday (I turned 26, not something I’m as overwhelmed about as Evie getting older). When I was told your children grow up so fast, I don’t think it quite sank in or I understood until now.

This photo was taken just under a month ago and I’ve only just found it on my camera card, I don’t even remember this photo being taken. It feels like my birthday was forever ago, September has been such a slow month. But we’ve done so many firsts with Evie, from kite flying, to foraging, to baking.

Despite experiencing all of these lovely firsts, it really seems like her baby days are slipping away really fast which is so sad. I don’t think I’m quite ready to let go yet and embrace the toddler.

    This cake has inspired my daughter, she is busy describing how she would like hers: pink and yellow swirls, smarties inside please! #mysundayphoto

      They go unbelievably fast. I was just looking at Evie’s hands today thinking, where did those tiny things go that were the size of my baby finger. It’s crazy! I’m glad there is more fun to come! 😀 x
