1st Birthday and 1st Christmas at Home

Thankful.
Eternally Grateful.
Forever in our Hearts and Thoughts and Mind.
Lucky
Magical
Amazing
Life Changing Miracle Workers
Blessed with 3 Gorgeous Children


Just a few statements to describe SCI, Dr Shivani, Margarida, our amazing surrogate mums and our egg donor........not that this can adequately describe our feelings.

Our babies turned 1 year old on 16 December so we had a smallish gathering of family and friends on Sunday 15 December. I wanted all of our kids to have their own cake so I made them an elephant cake each...but by far Jack's chocolate cake (in blue below) was the most popular!


To honour their heritage we had a touch of India as a theme with our girls dressed in beautiful and colourful Indian dresses and I made Jack a waistcoast with elephants.

It was a wonderfully moving day for Andrew and I and we created a video to honour their creation and their 1st year.

It took us over a week to open up all their birthday presents.....so many generous beautiful gifts.

And then we had their first Christmas at home which was so amazing. On Christmas Eve, I made all of us a special dinner and then we danced with our three in our arms to Christmas Carols, before putting them down regretfully to bed after a nice warm bath.

Here are a few pics of our three .

I love being their Mum and it just keeps getting better and better. 

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year xxxx
