So, little Delphi turned one this week… I can’t believe how quickly the past year has gone. It seems like just yesterday the babe was born, a teeny, tiny 2.7kgs of cuddles. She made our family feel complete from the second she arrived and Anouk fell in love with her instantly. I love watching the friendship between the sisters grow and being only 19 months apart, it’s really easy for them to play and make mischief together.
At one year of age, Didi is right on the cusp of walking, says a handful of words that include, up (because she always wants a cuddle), down (which usually comes after she has said up and executed a kind of jump), I’m hungry (because she is always freaking hungry), cake (duh) and mine (thanks Anouk). She loves making mess, eating dirt, sushi, dancing and her sister.
Yesterday we had a little celebration ahead of her big bash this weekend. After having our plans for a carousel ride foiled, we ended up taking a cake and some sushi down to the Sculpture Garden at the NGA for a roam around in the sun and some Rodin action.
It ended up being the perfect afternoon and we stayed a couple of hours looking at the outdoor sculptures (only going indoors for a visit to the parents room and a look at the shop). It was the first time Delphi has been able to get properly involved in the experience and I think her favourite thing was the Baldessin in the Gallery’s foreground. I’m not sure George meant for it to be used as drums, but Delphi sure thought they were fun!
Anyway, HAPPY BIRTHDAY DIDI!!! We love you very, very much.
