One year today...

One year today, almost to the minute, I was ringing my husband telling him to get to the hospital quick smart, as we were about to have a baby. Miss Sophia Rose Baker was about to make her debut into the world, 10 weeks early.

What a year it has been! A rollercoaster ride of highs and lows. Far too much time spent in hospital. And a heart full of love for such a sweet, sweet little girl.

Our darling Sophia, you have brought such sunshine to our lives...how could we have ever thought our family was complete with just three? We love you to absolute bits and are so proud of you, our feisty little princess.

Happy Birthday, baby girl!
