Birthday | Nelia’s 1st Birthday

“Blondes are wild, brunettes are true, but you never know just what a redhead will do”- Unknown

First birthday parties are for fun, balloons, cake smashes, lots of laughs and loving families. Well……. we got balloons right, loving families and lots of laughs! For the rest, not so much as this little redhead had her own ideas!

She hated the idea of touching her cake, just look at how upset she got when she accidentally stuck her foot in it 🙂 She was my easiest newborn I have ever photographed but this time around she tried to hide from me all the time! (See her newborn pictures Part 1 and newborn pictures Part 2)

Little Nelia had a extra special birthday as she shared it with her “Ouma” whom turned 81! The day was filled with laughter, plenty of fun, cakes smashes that went terrible wrong and a family that loves and adores this little redhead.

Why was I so desperate to have a natural birth?
Yes, it would have been a most empowering experience for me and yes my next one will be a VBAC, but was it really that important in the bigger scheme of things? At the end of it all we got what we set out to achieve – a human being that we could guide and mould and set free into the world for her to make her own impact. Maybe that trauma she and I both endured in getting her Earthside happened exactly how it was supposed to. That’s birth and even more so parenting – you set off on a course with big plans and that’s great, but there has to be flexibility and acceptance in changing course depending on whatever life (or your kid) throws at you.

After a minute or so we heard your first loud cry. It was glorious and we could finally breathe. Sr Lotter brought you to us and our hearts melted, my boy. You were beautiful. We checked for 10 fingers and 10 toes and we couldn’t stop looking at you. The happiest moment of our lives. You were born at 11:33 weighing 3.49kg and measuring 53cm.
