Birthday party for us turning One! and christening as well

The last 6 weeks have been hectic for us as we had the babies christened and they also celebrated their first birthday.The christening was lovely and we had friends and family come from all over to share this with us. It was a lovely day and all babies behaved very well.. except Harrison tried to grab the candle to play with the flame. Both of our parents were here with us for some time so that they got to really enjoy getting to know the babies again and enjoy them. It was wonderful watching them interact and laughing and sharing stories with them... also great to have the extra help looking after the trio. We have now also got a walker.... yep Anastasia has set the bench mark and now we are waiting for the boys to catch up! She is so proud of her new skill and just loves showing off in front of everyone... especially her brothers! I will try and upload the video of her first long walk which she did on mothers day... isn't she a clever little miss?

Anastasia first steps!!!!


The birthday party was held on 12 May between the 2 actual dates and we held it down at the park with friends. It was a lovely afternoon with a sausage sizzle and  a beautiful balloon cake. The babies all seemed to have a good time and really enjoyed the bubble machine and also the pinata.... with them having their first real big sugar hit as Daddy gave them lollipops!!
Oh yes I like this Daddy!

Thats right... I love cuddles!

The balloon cake... it was delicious!

Our supersized candle!

So what trouble can I get into now??
They are all so fantastic and really developing into little individuals with their own particular personalities. Mostly they are happy.... Harrison is probably a mummy's boy and likes things to remain familiar but is okay after he gets to feel comfortable. Anastasia is out there and a real go-getter... straight into everything! Oliver studies things  quietly and then beams in delight when he works it all out and heads into trouble!
So our first year with this delightful trio is now over and we head into toddlehood... now I really am scared! The next year is going to be so full of learning , loving and lots of laughter and some tears I am sure... so looking forward to it and sharing the development of our delightful babies.
Cheers from us all... Paula, Justin , Harriosn, Anastasia and Oliver
