Happy first birthday: A year in worried faces

Happy first birthday to my son: A year in worried faces

As his first birthday rapidly approaches, I thought I would pay tribute to my son. 


He is a baby no longer.

With under a week until he becomes one year old, he is not as screamy as he once was (although he is more than partial to a good whinge these days, and he still likes to announce his displeasure at anything and everything on a loud and regular basis) and he has learned to sleep an almost acceptable amount, for which I am thankful. It's not great, but it could be a lot worse.

He no longer vomits over everyone and everything. As predicted, he is now walking. Not just sporadically, a few steps here and there, but full time. No crawling here. He is also climbing up and off of things at an alarming rate.

He's even started saying a few things. Nothing profound; bit of dadda, calling for the dog, the toddler, a hello or two. I'm in no rush really, I already have a talking one. Once they start they don't stop.


So, in celebration of my soon-to-be one year old boy, I have compiled some of his best looks. 


It's actually made me quite emotional... I present to you a year of my son's signature look: worried and surprised.

Happy birthday, grumpy boy.

  1. Happy Birthday little one! I bet you can't believe a year has happened, we are rapidly nearing the 1st birthday mark too - 6 weeks to go. I'm impressed that your Son is walking, we are a while away from that I think. Beautiful pictures, and I hope he has a lovely birthday. Claire x #triballove

  22. Hahaha - love that face! The Popple was an early walker too - she refused to crawl despite our best efforts. I can barely keep up with her now - it I take my eyes off of her for a second, she's off. #chucklemums

  27. Awww he's absolutely gorgeous, a very strong look indeed. The first ones are my favourite!

    The first year goes so quickly, Mini is nearly 18months now (I still just say she is one when people ask, does that make me a bad mom?) and it still feels like shes 4 months! Lucy xx #TribalLove
