The "baby" of the house turned 3 on Monday and on Saturday, she had her first real birthday party with all the trimmings. She was so excited and had such a great time, I am really grateful that we were able to do this for her. I can't believe how quickly the time has gone by. I know I've said this before, but in many ways I still think of her as a baby. Clearly, that must stop now! And though it's very tempting to have another baby, I realise that no matter how many babies I have, they will all eventually grow up and rather deal with it now than coping with half a dozen children!
