Turning one is a huge deal, if you don’t believe me ask Jessica & Adam (Ellis calls them Mama & Dada). They’ve owned this bundle of joy from birth and they remember when his age was counted in days, weeks, then months and from now on it will be in years. In one year their helpless newborn has transformed into an independent little man.

If you’ve only got one child you’ll know that by one year old your little human should be, using a spoon, communicating using some words, sit without being held up and counting to five in French (just checking you’re still with me). If you’ve got more than one child under the age of three then I’m guessing you’re muddling through without checking google for development advice and possibly drinking wine before bed. Afternoon naps will soon be a thing of the past (for your baby).

Did you know until recently TV shows were not allowed to sing happy birthday, without paying a hefty fee to the copyright owners. Warner/Chappell music were reported to receive two million a year in licensing fees. Every day is a school day.

If you like my pic, musings or both, then please share this post and increase visits to my website. This will get my work seen by more people, who will then tell their friends and family and somewhere along the line one of them might book me for a portrait, wedding or corporate job and my business world will keep turning. Thank You x
