  2. My son is coming up to his first birthday in July. What a phenomenal amount changes in your lives and theirs in such a tiny period of time. Congratulations on a wonderfully successful first year.

  3. Happy 1st birthday Lizzie. You have an amazing mummy and daddy. Enjoy your day and I hope you are spoilt rotten xxxx

  4. Lovely pic under your tree. Amazing how Lizzie has grown in one year. Whilst you two have done six months of blog and all that entails you have spent so much time shaping her little character. You Pugs are amazing, well done.

  5. I’m writing this on the 11th – so happy Birthday Lizzie! On the 10th of May 9 years ago I too was in labour – and had a throughly tranquil experience – in welcoming my Izzy into the world! And as my friend wrote about my sons (17th) Birthday last week ‘Well done’ to Becksie Mummy is so often forgotten on their child’s birthday !!

  6. Hope you’ve all enjoyed this special day! Happy 1st Birthday Lizzie and here’s to a great second year 😄! x
